[BTvS Atlanta] COMBATANTS FOR PEACE - JANUARY 8TH

The Atlanta chapter of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom invites you to the
North American tour debut of Combatants for Peace on Monday,
January 8, 2007, 7:30 PM at Congregation Bet Haverim. We are
fortunate enough to have Atlanta as the kickoff site for the
organization's 22-city tour. Be among the first to find out what
all the buzz is about.

SPEAKERS: Sulaiman Al Hamri and Elik Elhanan, former Combatants,
and the Palestinian and Israeli coordinators for Combatants for
Peace

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

Elik Elhanan

Elik is the Israeli coordinator of Combatants for Peace. From
1995 to 1998 he served as a soldier in an IDF combat unit. 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

Sulaiman is the Palestinian coordinator for Combatants for
Peace. He spent four-and-ahalf 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.

About Combatants for Peace:
The "Combatants for Peace" movement was started by Palestinians
and Israelis who had taken part in the cycle of violence between
the two peoples. After brandishing weapons for so many years,
these former combatants decided to put down their guns and
instead fight for peace.
