About to give up on reconciliation in Israel-Palestine? Don't. Watch this interview with Salim Munayer of Musalaha.
Are you thirsty for a different kind of voice in the maelstrom of voices over Israel-Palestine? How can we look with clear eyes at the conflict? Is there a hopeful path to follow? Has anyone got anything to say that is not ultimately one-sided? Salim Munayer does.
Dr Salim Munayer is director of Musalaha reconciliation ministry in Israel-Palestine and a trustee of the Church Mission Society. He co-authoredThrough My Enemy's Eyes, with Lisa Loden.
Here, he discusses the ABC of reconciliation, what might be a Christlike response to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and challenges the Church in the West about its apathy and seeming lack of desire to speak up for Christians in the Middle East.
Salim also sheds light on the competing historical narratives and theological frameworks, and the implication of the church in the conflict.
