Brit Tzedek v'Shalom is a US based Jewish peace organization of over 36,000 individuals whose mission is to educate and mobilize American Jews in support of a negotiated two-state resolutioon to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In winter 2007, Brit Tzedek v'Shalom organized a 22 city tour of the United States by representatives of Combatants For Peace.
Combatants For Peace is a group of Israelis and Palestinians who were formerly involved in the cycle of violence. The Israelis served as combat soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the Palestinians were engaged in acts of violence in the name of Palestinian liberation. After brandishing weapons for so many years, they decided to put down their guns and fight for peace.
On January 25, 2007, Sulaiman Al-hamri and Elik Elhanan, the Palestinian and Israeli coordinators of Combatants For Peace, spoke at Beth Emet Synagogue in Evanston, Illinois.
"I AM NOT SHOOTING AND I AM NOT CRYING" is a record of that event
