Sulaiman Khatib and Tuly Flint
Combatants for Peace

Former Palestinian prisoners and Israeli Combat soldiers and officers laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace, a Nobel Peace Prize nominated movement founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. It is the only organization, worldwide, in which former fighters on both sides of an active conflict have renounced violence and chosen to work together for peace. Their joint action lays the groundwork for a peaceful future by modeling the potential of what can be.

Sulaiman Khatib ~ Sulaiman is Palestinian and one of the original founders of Combatants for Peace. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.  

Tuly Flint ~ Tuly is the highest ranking officer in Combatants for Peace, the equivalent of a two star general, and probably one of the highest ranking people in the Israeli military to ever refuse to serve, despite even being threatened with a public military trial. 

Carrie Skarda will be visiting as well to provide the introductions.
