It is definitely no easy task to stand up for what is right in this world. But Miss Iraq was willing to risk her life to stand up for Middle East peace.
They threatened to kill Miss Iraq @RealSarahIdan for posing with Miss Israel. Her response: to become one of the most courageous voices for Middle East peace in the world today.— Hillel Neuer (@HillelNeuer) June 5, 2019

Middle East Peace
Is Middle East peace possible? There are times where it seems impossible. And then there are other times that create a strong sense of hope. When Miss Iraq and Miss Israel became friends and posted a picture together on social media, they made a huge statement. Sarah Idan, Miss Iraq, received death threats for publicly supporting peace. Can you imagine? The Arab world was furious.
But that did not stop her. She and Miss Israel, Adar Gandelsman, continued their friendship and peace efforts.
Ambassador for Peace Award
Sarah Idan will be receiving the Ambassador for Peace Award. The Ambassador for Peace Award is an award given by the Geneva based non- governmental organization United Nations Watch. UN watch chose Idan for being a courageous voice in bringing Middle East peace. Despite death threats, she continued her mission. And THAT is truly heroic. Hopefully, the future will continue to be filled with more peace!
