During her captivity, she was asked to convert to Islam by the captors, but she refused. Nevertheless, she promised to read the Holy Quran after her release; she kept her promise, and converted to Islam in 2003.

Apart from her journalism, she is an activist and one of the co-founders of Viva Palestina. She has joined the Free Gaza Movement to challenge the Israeli siege.
