VIDEO-Combatants For Peace Visit Mass.

Modified: 09:54:55 AM
Israeli Yaniv Rashef, whose home is in range of Gaza missiles, was a foot soldier in 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 for justice and peace in Palestine/Israel.

Former Palestinian and Israeli combatants are speaking in Mass. in March; advocating a peaceful solution to Palestine/Israel war.
