Joan Peters was a friend, a fellow Chicago CAMERA and StandWithUs board member and a courageous, articulate advocate for Israel. She was well-known in both the pro- and anti-Israel communities because of her groundbreaking and controversial book From Time Immemorial: The Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine. But those of us fortunate to have known Joan personally will remember her as an elegant, authentic, brilliant and most charming friend. She will be missed by many.
