JNS.org – Pregnant Israeli woman Michal Froman, who was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist on Jan. 18, called on Arabs to embrace peace.

“I may have cheated death, but I did not defeat terrorism,” she said on Thursday after being discharged from the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Froman, 30, who is 18 weeks pregnant, sustained moderate wounds when she was attacked in Tekoa, a Jewish community in Judea and Samaria. Froman, the daughter-in-law of the late Rabbi Menachem Froman, a prominent advocate for coexistence, did not let the attack alter her views on her Arab neighbors.
