      EVENT DETAILS
      Combatants for Peace

      Join Asheville members of American Friends of Combatants for Peace for presentations by former Israeli and Palestinian combatants who have joined together to work for peace in their shared homeland. Events will include personal stories from the frontlines of one of the world’s most intractable conflicts as well as time for Q&A.

      In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants, people who had taken an active role in the conflict, laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace. The egalitarian, bi-national, grassroots organization was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. Committed to joint nonviolence since its inception, CFP works to both transform and resolve the conflict by ending the Israeli occupation and all forms of violence between the two sides and building a peaceful future for both peoples.
