‘Together for the Protection of Our Presence’
This jointstatementcomes from Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land as the ever deepening threat to the Christian presence in the land of its birth looms large.
“We are an integral thread in the cultural tapestry of Jerusalem, determined to remain deeply rooted in our land. Uprooting us from our historical heritage and the establishments that have endured for centuries is both unacceptable and implausible. Our commitment to our faith and rituals is unwavering. From this land, the divine message of love was launched, and it is on this land that we are determined to experience freedom, dignity, and lasting peace.”
