Imam Feisal joined Rabbi David Ingber for a Q&A for the prime screening of Disturbing the Peace on Sunday, November 13. Other NYC screenings for Disturbing the Peace took place on November 11 and November 12.
In Disturbing the Peace (a Reconsider film), Directors Stephen Apkon and Andrew Young followed enemy combatant fighters amidst one of the most embattled and contentious regions, the Middle East—but in this case, Israeli soldiers from the most elite units, and Palestinian fighters have come together to challenge the status quo and and say “enough!” Now, former enemy fighters, the “Combatants for Peace,” have laid down their weapons and embraced non-violent activism to end bloodshed. Deconstructing the cycle of violence through compassion and empathy, their personal journeys show us a powerful and inspiring way to non-violent solutions in a conflict filled society.
