The group is coming together to show solidarity and make a statement against extremism in all religions.“Every peace mission I’ve been on has been dangerous, but this journey is without question the most perilous, and in my opinion – the most important. People everywhere are concerned about the escalating violence in the Middle East, especially with the rise of ISIS, but they don’t feel empowered to be part of the solution. That is what we are about to change.”, Twymann wrote on his blog.
James Twymann, hailing from Portland, has been performing peace concerts in many war-torn countries over the past twenty years. Beginning in Bosnia and Croatia in 1995 during the Balkan war; then in 1998 he was invited by Saddam Hussein to perform at the national theater in Baghdad, Twymann claimed on his website.
The Peace Troubadour believes that combining his energy with that of millions of other people at the exact same moment, focusing on a specific world situation or event might results in a positive change.
