Nonie Darwish is a "leader of Arabs for Israel and the daughter of a slain fighter from Gaza". She appears as a narrator in the islamophobic propaganda film Obsession. Darwish was born in Cairo in 1948, and in the early 1950s moved with her family to the Egyptian-occupied Gaza Strip, where her father, Lt.-Gen. Mustafa Hafez, was appointed by president Gamal Abdel Nasser to command Egyptian army intelligence. She graduated from the American University, and later worked as a journalist. In 1978 she moved to the US, where she became a Christian and founded Arabs for Israel.
