About Tariq Hathaleen

Tariq Hathaleen is 24 years old and studies English teaching methods at Hebron University, although he is preparing to graduate shortly. He is from the village of Um al-Khair, and has been a peace activist for more than five years. Tariq became involved in activism as a result of his observation that there was a need for more voices speaking out against human rights abuses and home demolitions, and he hopes to defend his community in this way. Tariq wishes to live the advice of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), who says that it is better to go and help one's brother than to stay in the mosque and pray for one month.
