Ahmed Helou is a Palestinian Peace Activist with Combatants for Peace. He grew up burning tires and throwing rocks in protest against Israel, since he was 10 years old. Ahmed became a member of the terrorist organization Hamas, that is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. He’s been jailed multiple times, shot, and lives today with the bullet still remaining in his body too close to his neck to operate.
Yet today, he is a Peace activist, working with Combatants for Peace. Don’t you wonder how in the world he changed his beliefs to be willing to speak with Israelis, even have close friends who are Israelis, and ultimately work on Peace? I know we sure did. At PEACE with Penny, it gave us hope. We hope you listen and learn. We understand it is not easy to hear, especially if you are Israeli or Jewish, but the first step in correcting a problem is knowing that it exits. Oy.
You can hear from an Israeli member of Combatants for Peace, Elie Avidor, in our previous interview from July 6, 2021.
May You Live in Peace, שלום and سلام.
