Subject: [SMUJP] Combatants for Peace, Israeli & Palestinian,  March 7

SMUJP is co-sponsoring the March 7 event in Cambridge:

Courage of Conscience Speaking Tour Combatants for Peace
Former Soldier, Former Fighter Yaniv Reshef and Bassam Aramin
Show a Way to Stop Brutality in Israel  and Palestine
Israeli Yaniv Rashef, whose home is in range of Gaza missiles, was a foot soldier in a sabotage unit of the Israeli Army – and chose to fight no more.  Palestinian Bassam Aramin served seven years in jail for planning an attack against Israeli soldiers – and chose no more violence.  Just two years ago, Bassam lost his daughter to an Israeli soldier’s rubber-coated bullet.  They are Combatants for Peace, now over 600 former Israeli soldiers and former Palestinian fighters, working together without revenge to justice, peace – and playgrounds.
