[BTvS - St. Louis] Jan 28th: Combatants for Peace in St. Louis

**An invitation from the St. Louis Chapter of Brit Tzedek
v'Shalom**

-- COME AND HEAR COMBATANTS FOR PEACE --

"a rare opportunity to hear a hopeful message"

Members of the Israeli-Palestinian group, Combatants for Peace,
will visit St. Louis as part of a 22-city U.S. tour sponsored by
Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, the largest American Jewish peace movement
dedicated to a negotiated two-state resolution of the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Shimon Katz and Sulaiman Al Hamri
will advocate together for non-violent alternatives to resolve
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

DATE: SUNDAY, JANUARY 28, 2007
TIME: 2:30 pm
PLACE: CENTRAL REFORM CONGREGATION, 5020 Waterman at
Kingshighway.

Middle Eastern refreshments and music will be provided by
Children of Abraham, a St. Louis group of Jews and
Arab-Americans co-sponsoring the event. Other co-sponsors:
Central Reform Congregation and Students for a Peaceful
Palestinian-Israeli Future. Admission is free.

Katz, a former officer in an elite Israeli Army combat brigade,
and Al Hamri, who spent several years in Israeli prisons for
violent acts in the West Bank, will describe their transition
from veteran fighters to peace advocates. They will talk frankly
about violent actions where they took part and describe turning
points that led them to see the violence as counter-productive.
