On this special episode of The One Way Ticket Show, Host Steven Shalowitz sat down with Yahya Mahamid following the barbaric invasion of Israel by Hamas terrorists on Saturday 7 October 2023. The interview is from Steven’s conversation with Yahya on the Jewish National Fund USA podcast, IsraelCast.
Yahya Mahamid is an Arab-Israeli speaker, educator, and activist. He serves as a mentor in various programs and works to empower and integrate youth from Israel’s Arab minority. Mahamid was raised in the city of Um Al Fahm and grew up with a negative image of Israel and the Jewish people, but personal interactions with Israelis challenged and changed his perceptions. Notably, he volunteered as a combat infantry soldier in the Israel Defense Forces and has since dedicated his life to educating others about antisemitism and misinformation about Israel.
During the conversation, Yahya shares his remarkable life’s journey and debunks myths about Israel.
