Despite a furore over her presence in the Mideast, Hollywood screen legend Jane Fonda visited an Israeli town where Israeli and Arab children live in peace.

Far from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, Fonda made her way through the bombed-out and derelict streets of Ramallah. She has come with a very important purpose, to help bring public discourse to this troubled region.

She visited a hospital for young people who have been injured during the more than two years of fresh Mideast fighting. Many have criticised Fonda for her visit, citing her controversial history of pursuing leftist agendas, but Fonda says her trip has been memorable.

"We can't help but be moved. We can't help but want to commit ourselves as women to stopping this violence so that no more mothers will lose their children." Fonda met with children at a meeting in the Israeli village of Neveh Shalom. She could hardly fight back the tears as she paid witness to what few people see: unity amongst Israelis and Palestinians. - Reuters
