Dear Friends and Peacemakers in the United States,
Nine years ago, at a small synagogue in Orange, Connecticut, I was inspired by the raw courage of the Combatants for Peace. They are the living hope that inspires Israelis and Palestinians to actively defend and protect one another, to bring justice and peace to their "enemies" in the belief both have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, where they live and die, side by side, in the land of their fathers.
We are blessed far beyond our understanding and these brave men and women of the Combatants for Peace need our support. Please see and listen to their impossible stories of peacemaking in the West Bank and Israel and join us in giving them our support
We hope you'll join us with your gift in support of Combatants for Peace. At your instruction, and under our supervision, we are directing one hundred percent of your gifts to Combatants for Peace. American Friends of Combatants for Peace is designated by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Your tax deductible donation helps us wage peace here and abroad
Disturbing the Peace
Directed by Stephen Apkon and Andrew Young
Starring the Combatants for Peace
About the film:
"In a world torn by conflict—in a place where the idea of peace has been abandoned—an energy of determined optimism emerges. When someone is willing to disturb the status quo and stand for the dream of a free and secure world, who will stand with them? DISTURBING THE PEACE is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a story that no longer serves us and, with the power of our convictions, take action to create new possibilities."
"DISTURBING THE PEACE follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. While based in the Middle East, DISTURBING THE PEACE evokes universal themes relevant to us all and inspires us to become active participants in the creation of our world."
