A group of Palestinian Christian leaders issued a document Friday in Bethlehem that pleaded the case of Palestinians and called for the end of Israeli occupation of the territory.
Authors of “The Kairos Palestine Document” said they are calling for the end to the occupation “because today we have reached a dead end in the tragedy of the Palestinian people.”
“The hearts of the faithful are filled with pain and with questioning: What is the international community doing? What are the political leaders in Palestine, in Israel and in the Arab world doing? What is the Church doing?” the 12-page paper asks.
“The problem is not just a political one,” it went on to contend. “It is a policy in which human beings are destroyed, and this must be of concern to the Church.” (more, Palestinian Pastors: Occupation Tragedy Has Reached Dead End)
