invites you to a panel event:
"Christians in the Holy Land"
Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek
Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center
Co-founder, Mandela Institute for Palestinian Prisoners
In the endless stream of coverage on the Israel/Palestine conflict, Palestinian Christians receive scant attention. This is surprising in light of the overall concern for Christians in the Middle East in American society and politics. This panel features prominent Palestinian Christian leaders who will discuss the condition of those descendants of the original followers of Christ who remain in the holy land.
