Taghrid Sa’adi, 25, a Palestinian woman from Sakhnin in the Galilee, is beginning to rebuild her life after spending six and a half years in prison for security- related offenses. After a flurry of interest in her case from the local and Arab media, Taghrid must now start he life almost from scratch, as if she were born at the moment she stepped out from the gates of Sharon Prison. “Before I was arrested, my dream was to study nursing and work as a nurse so that I could help people who were sick or in need,” Taghrid recalls, in a comment that might be taken from an educational television program for children. The reality of life for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, however, is that questions of politics, security, and the struggle for their basic indigenous rights cannot be evaded. Perhaps this explains why Taghrid was unable to move toward her dream in Israeli reality. She now plans to work as a journalist in order to raise the political and social consciousness of the Palestinian citizens of Israel. “I learned a lot during my time in prison, but the most important thing is the bond between myself, as a Palestinian living inside Israel, and my people in the West Bank andGaza. I could sum it up by saying that I have been reborn. Any problem I may face in the future will be insignificant compared to the things I have experienced and to the lack of the most basic conditions in the Israeli prison
