This promotional video was made to help spread the work and mission of the movement “Combatants for Peace”. A movement which was started jointly by Palestinians and Israelis, who have taken an active part in the cycle of violence; Israelis as soldiers in the Israeli army (IDF) and Palestinians as part of the violent struggle for Palestinian freedom. After brandishing weapons for so many years, and having seen one another only through weapon sights, they decided to put down their guns, and fight for peace.

They believe that only by joining forces, will we be able to end the cycle of violence, the bloodshed and the occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people. They no longer believe that it is possible to resolve the conflict between the two peoples through violent means; therefore they refuse to take part any more in the mutual bloodletting. They will act only by non-violent means so that each side will come to understand the national aspirations of the other side. They see dialogue and reconciliation as the only way.
