A Personal Invitation from Itamar Feigenbaum, A member of Combatants for
Peace, to `Studying for peace` with Alistair Little and Gerry Foster, the
combatants for peace of Northern Ireland

My name is Itamar Feigenbaum, a former paratrooper in the IDF and currently
a member of Combatants for Peace. In 2009 I was in Northern Ireland with
Israeli and Palestinian members of Combatants for Peace. We met with

I would like to invite you for a taste of it. On Sunday, July 17th, 8pm, we
will host Alistair Little and Gerry Foster from Belfast in Tel-aviv for an
evening of `Studying for Peace`. It will take place at the Rosa Luxemburg
Foundation offices - Rothschild 11, Tel-Aviv. Alistair and Greey had both
served time in prison after fighting on opposite sides. Both now work
together to keep on building peace in Northern Ireland. Alistair Littles
story was adapted into a Hollywood film (Five Minutes to Heaven), with Liam
Neeson as Alistair.

In this evening we will try to think about our life here from a different
point of view:

Is the conflict here so different from North-Ireland?

Can these outsiders really understand us here?

Can we learn something from their experience?

I hope to see you on Sunday!
