    In a Twitter world of one-second images and three-second sound bites, it’s not surprising that Israel would be seen by most of the world as an enemy of Arabs.

    Hila Fenlon, a 36-year-old farmer and mother of two, lives in Netiv Hasara, a small Israeli village of 400 residents that caresses the Gaza border. Hila is not religious, but she loves to use the word “miracle.”
