ISRAEL - PALESTINE
For Gaza parish priest, Israel's offensive on the Palestinians was like an "atomic bomb"
Fr Manawel Musallam talks about the conditions in which people live in the Gaza Strip after four weeks of bombing. Children and adolescents have been hurt "in body and spirit," unable to "find joy, talk about peace or offer it others." By its actions, Israel "is not only destroying the humanity of the people of Gaza, but also that of its own people."

For Gaza priest, Israel’s occupation humiliates the Palestinian people
“There are no differences between Christians and Muslims because we all suffer the same way,” Fr Manawel Musallam says. He is in favour of a dialogue with Israel, but wants to see “concrete steps” in defence of the population. “Many factors,” he believes, “prevent us from seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.”

The Church has undertaken some initiatives to meet needs. Jihadi infiltration is a danger. Gaza Christians are "heroes of the faith".
