Nasri: On Non-Violent Resistance

Nasri Sabarna, mayor of Bet Ommar, talks about his history of resistance and underscores his strong commitment to non-violence and cooperation with like-minded Israelis and international peace activists.


Common Ground: Peace
Since 1974 or 1975 until 1994. I was arrested many times, because I was one of the resistance against occupation. After the first Intifada I met Israeli people who want peace. Who recognize our rights to an independent state in our land to live side by side. After that I started relations with many Israeli peace activists.

Peaceful resistance
I found that not only everything [sic] by violent resistance we can gain our goals. No I found that by non-violent resistance we can achieve our goals peacefully and easily. And by this we gain the support of all the world.
