[BTvS - Ann Arbor] Combatants for Peace Tour


Ann Arbor--A former Israeli soldier Elik Elhanan and a former
Palestinian combatant and prisoner Sulaiman Al Hamri, will
appear together to advocate for non-violent alternatives for
achieving a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The
speakers, who represent the Israeli-Palestinian group Combatants
for Peace, are coming to Ann Arbor as part of a 22-city national
tour to the United States, sponsored by the chapters of Brit
Tzedek v'Shalom, the largest American Jewish peace group.

Date: Tuesday, January 23, 2007
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Jewish Community Center, 2935 Birch Hollow Dr., Ann

Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace
(www.btvshalom.org) , is a national grassroots movement more
than 35,000 strong, that educates and mobilizes American Jews in
support of a negotiated two-state resolution of the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict.


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.
