[BTvS-CT] Combatants for Peace Next Week!

Please join us in Orange, Woodbridge, or Bridgeport Jan. 16-17
to hear and talk with
Sulaiman Al Hamri and Elik Elhanan, 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-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.

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.
