Lama Khater

Lama Khater, born in Ramallah in 1976, is a journalist and political analyst. She is running in the May 2021 legislative elections as a candidate on Hamas’ ‘Jerusalem is our Promise’ list. 

Her writing, which is critical of both the Israeli state and the Palestinian Authority, led to her husband’s arrest by Palestinian Authority security forces in 2012. Khater herself was arrested by the Israeli authorities in 2018 for her involvement in hostile activities against Israel.
