[BTvS - Rhode Island] Save the Date! Combatants for Peace Tour

SAVE THE DATE!

The RI Chapter of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom is hosting an exciting
speaking event!!

Who: Combatants for Peace
When: Sunday, January 21, 2007, at 4:00 p.m.
Where: Jewish Community Center of RI, 401 Elmgrove
Ave., Providence

The Speakers:

Elik Elhanan is the Israeli coordinator for Combatants for
Peace. He served as a soldier in an IDF combat unit from
1995-1998. In 1997, his sister was killed by a Palestinian
suicide bombing in Jerusalem. "I have seen the damage the
violence can cause," he says, "and I decided not to take part in
that cycle anymore."

Sulaiman Al Hamri is the Palestinian coordinator for Combatants
for Peace. He spent four-and-a-half years in Israeli prisons for
his involvement in anti-occupation protests and demonstrations,
before deciding to pursue a non-violent approach to resolving
the conflict.
This event is free and open to the public.

About Combatants for Peace*:

"We are a group of Israeli and Palestinian individuals who were
actively involved in the cycle of violence in our area. The
Israelis served as combat soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces
and the Palestinians were involved in acts of violence in the
name of Palestinian liberation.

We all used weapons against one another, and looked at each
other only through weapon sights; however today we cooperate and
commit ourselves to the following:

We no longer believe that the conflict can be resolved through
violence.

We believe that the blood shed will not end unless we act
together to terminate the occupation and stop all forms of
violence.

We call for the establishment of a Palestinian State, alongside
the State of Israel.

The two states can exist in peace and security beside each
other.

We will use only non-violent means to achieve our goals and call
for both societies to end violence."
