Tonight’s Topic: Come join a West Bank Jew and Palestinian discuss the failures of the peace process, the rival narratives contextualizing our conflict and fresh ideas for achieving a real peace that can satisfy both peoples.
About our speakers: Sulaiman Khatib is a founder and director of the Combatants for Peace organization, uniting former Palestinian prisoners and former Israeli soldiers seeking non-violent solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. At 14, Sulaiman was sentenced to 15 years in prison for attacking an Israeli soldier. While jailed, he began to learn history, Hebrew, English and about other conflicts and peace activists throughout the world. He currently lives in Ramallah and is an active member of various programs aiming to promote a peaceful solution to the conflict. In 2017, Sulaiman was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
Rabbi Yehuda HaKohen is a West Bank Jewish peace activist and educator. As a leader in the Vision movement, he works to empower students to become thought leaders and active participants in the current chapter of Jewish history. As a founder of Alternative Action, he organizes grassroots dialogue sessions for Palestinian and Israeli activists seeking to transcend competing one-sided narratives in favor of a more scientific analysis of the factors forcing both peoples into conflict.
