    Sulaiman Khatib - Palestinian peace activist nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, to share his remarkable story of transformation.

    On Tuesday, December 11, at 7pm at Congregation Shomrei Torah, 2600 Bennett Valley Road in Santa Rosa, all are invited to partake in an evening of inspiration and hope for a more peaceful Middle East.
    At the age of 14 Sulaiman was sentenced to 15 years in Israeli prison. During his time in jail, he educated himself in Israel/Palestinian history, Hebrew, English and various other world conflicts as well as the work of peace activists such as Ghandi and Mandela. He acquired his entire education and worldview in jail. This is when he started to have new thoughts about the conflict and the means for resolving it. As a result he is today a committed advocate for peace in the Middle East and an active member of various programs aiming to promote a peaceful solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, within local communities, as well as on a regional and international level.

    Sulaiman Khatib was born in Hizmeh/Jerusalem and lives in Ramallah. He is an elected member of the Peace NGO’s Forum and former co-director of combatants for Peace, a non-profit Israeli/Palestinian peace- building organization located in Ramallah and Tel Aviv. Combatants for Peace brings together ex-Israeli soldiers and ex-Palestinian prisoners who decided to join hands to solve the conflict through non-violent means. Founder and General Director since 2005 of Al-Qud’s Association for Democracy and Dialogue, Mr. Khatibh has been working with Palestinian youth to create effective and sustainable projects and programs focusing on the promotion of peace, democracy, dialogue and civic participation in the Palestinian Territories.

    This event is FREE and open to all. Parking is limited and carpooling is encouraged. For more information go to: www.cstsr.org
