Wonderful first week

Pictures from the first 10 days of life for Bashar, Omer, Sliman, and Shade at Camp Susquehannock. Highlights include the visit of PCI co-director Jamie Leno Zimron Sensei, the Girl's camp Olympics, and a special serving for everyone in camp of ice cream donated by Ben & Jerry's, who've supported The PeaceCamp Initiative since 2008.

Budo for Peace makes the Times of Israel

I am sitting with international martial arts masters from Jordan, Japan, Senegal, and Israel and with the local Bedouin karate club. After two exhausting days of sweating and sharing both graceful movements and brutal techniques used for self-defense and confidence building between people, I see that we can win the battle for the hearts and minds of Arab, Christian, Muslim and Jewish children living in this conflict zone.
