Rafeef Ziadah is a Canadian-Palestinian spoken word artist and activist. Her debut CD Hadeel is dedicated to Palestinian youth, who still fly kites in the face of F16 bombers, who still remember the names if their villages in Palestine and still hear the sound of Hadeel (cooing of doves) over Gaza.

    This girl is amazing. She is without a doubt a brave young lady working in a dangerous area. I wish there was some way Israel could be made to understand life and what it is all about.
