Combatants for Peace the Clip - Help Us Bring Peace
The “Combatants for Peace” movement was started jointly by Palestinians and Israelis who have taken an active part in the cycle of violence; Israelis as soldiers in the Israeli army (IDF) and Palestinians as part of the violent struggle for Palestinian freedom. After brandishing weapons for so many years, and having seen one another only through weapon sights, we have decided to lay down our arms, and to fight for peace.Combatants for Peace's mission is to actively spread the message that a non-violent solution to the conflict is possible, and our hundreds of members and participants are living proof that it is.
Combatants for Peace Needs Your Support to Continue These Important Activities - especially now with the ongoing violence between our countries. Help Us Reach A Wider Audience With Our Message.
