CPT on the BBC

Something like a year after the tragic conclusion of a hostage crisis involving four of its volunteers in Iraq, Christian Peacemaker Teams gets some coverage over at the BBC. The Beeb has a photo essay about CPT's team in Hebron, one of the worst flashpoints in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and also the team I happen to have visited during my undergraduate cross-cultural semester in the region. CPT's stated mission is to bring a nonviolent presence to the worst conflicts in the world -- to actually "get in the way" of warring parties -- and the team I met were good folks. It's good to seem their message reach a wider audience.
