Combatants for Peace
I recently came accross a website for a group called Combatants for Peace. The group is composed of former Israeli and Palestinian combatants, who have decided that the conflict in which their countries are involved cannot be resolved by violence. They are commited to dialouge and non-violent resolution of the very real and valid struggle between the two sides. The website has some great stories from members, along with video of some of their meetings, etc. Its so easy for us as Americans to write off the Palestinian side as irrational terrorists, but the existence of this group, and the beliefs of its Israeli members, calls for a bit of objectivity on the subject. I reccomend checking it out. Video by Journeyman Pictures here.
