Yovav Kalifon | His finger on the pain, Jordanian tells Israelis how it is

Lets take some inspiration from Yan. Here is a man who was not afraid to report from Syria, and got beaten up both by Assad supporters and by rebels, each side accusing him of supporting the other camp.

By coming to Israel to talk to Israelis Yan was again taking risks. His career in journalism, theater connections, respect from family and friends, even his personal safety may be at risk after publishing his reports.

Amman Net, Saraya News, Gerasa News are all in arabic. Anyone skilled in arabic might want to go check what he has written before.
