Anne William Kennedy, a British citizen, announced on Saturday, July 21, her conversion to Islam during a press conference held at the headquarters of the Palestine Scholars Association in Gaza City, amid intensive media coverage.

The British woman, who changed her name to "Khadija Hassan”, said that she voluntarily converted to Islam after a Palestinian youth "Yusuf Hassan", a resident of Khan Younis, convinced her to become a Muslim and after studying lots of books on Islam.

Khadija expressed happiness for announcing her conversion to Islam and for being in the Gaza Strip, which she considered a country for all Muslims.

For his part; the chairman of the Palestine Scholars Association, Dr. Salim Salama, congratulated Anne for taking this step, and offered her, at the end the conference, a copy of the Quran with a translation of some of its meaning to the English language.

Kennedy, "Khadija Hassan”, holds a bachelor's degree in economics and political science as well as a master's degree in philosophy and she has been teaching religions in British schools.
