Leila Khaled: in her own words

  1. Hi there, Sarah

    I find your website immensely interesting. I have actually only just heard about Leila Khaled I am trying to learn more. I’m heading to Palestine in June and will be stopping through Jordan on the way. As an independent journalist, reporter and activist I would love to interview her more some publications back here in Australia.

    Do you know if she is open to doing interviews often or not? If so I was hoping you could provide me with some sort of contact details so I could get in touch with her.
