Please – stand by us Arab Christians

A coalition of Christian organizations in Palestine – also speaking for ‘persecuted Christians in Iraq and Syria’ – write an open letter to the World Council of Churches asking for urgent support; ‘We are on the verge of a catastrophic collapse’. For some reason, the BoD chose to attack them. The task is allotted to someone whose blog and letter so jostle with insults, and spurious ‘facts’, the citing of pogroms and persecution, that her argument is not taken seriously by the Methodists whom she addresses.

What kind of Jew am I?

Robert Cohen, wondering what Jewish camp he belongs to (Kairos), gives his anguished account of being Jewish when official Judaism bestows its blessing on the crushing of Palestinians.

A Christian duty to take up the cause of Palestinian rights

As a radical and iconoclastic Jew, Jesus sided with the poor and powerless against the powerful Roman occupiers. Mark Braverman extends his mission from challenging Jewish complacency about Israel to urging Christians to take up the path of the radical Jesus. Robert Cohen talks with him about his ‘calling’ to get Christian churches to put their own house in order on justice and dignity for Palestinians.

The British Christians who say it’s time to act on Palestine

Greenbelt is one of the summer festivals for people of a religious/spiritual frame of mind. This year, Christians at the festival took up ‘Kairos Palestine’ , a plea for the Christians of Palestine, and issued their own document challenging Christians to recognise the issues of justice, love and religious belief that are so out of reach for Palestinians.
