In early September through October, 2006, two members of the group Combatants for Peace (C4P) were in Philadelphia. This is a group composed of Israeli and Palestinian ex-fighters. These former combatants, now numbering around 200, met for a year in secret before going public last April. 
This site was used to help organize that effort and will be re-activated to help prepare for their return.
 
Their message:
We refuse to be enemies.  We call for the end of occupation and all violence. We support the establishment of two states.
 
From September 12 to October 11 . . C4P will be right here in the Delaware Valley!  From Sept. 10 until mid-October, Palestinian Souliman Khatib will be visiting us.  In the events scheduled for Oct. 8, 9 and 12th, Souliman will be joined by Israeli Yonatan Shapira.
