Founded in 2005, Combatants for Peace is made up of former Palestinian militants and Jewish Israeli soldiers leading a nonviolent, bi-national movement against the occupation and violence in support of an independent Palestine alongside Israel existing in peace, security, and with good neighborly relations. For this event we will be joined by two co-founders of the organization and movement, Palestinian Sulaiman Khatib and Israeli Chen Alon, who will share their vision of ways to break the cycle of violence between Palestinians and Israelis.
This Swig Program in Jewish Studies and Social Justice event is co-sponsored by the Program in Performing Arts and Social Justice.
