Abstract

A talk on non-violence in the context of the middle east by former CNN bureau chief Jerry Levin, the first of the so-called "forgotten" hostages in Lebanon in the mid-1980s. Kidnapped on March 7, 1984, he spent 11 months in solitary confinement until his escape on Valentines Day, 1985. While a hostage, Jerry experienced a spiritual transformation from a "culturally assimilated Jewish-American atheist" to becoming a follower of Jesus. After his escape to freedom he embarked on a campaign of writing and lecturing on the futility of violence as a means of resolving individual, social, cultural or political issues. Since May, 2002, he has worked with Christia n Peacemaker Teams in the occupied territories.
