Mitri Raheb – Keys to Understanding the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Mitri Raheb (Arabic: متري الراهب‎) is a Palestinian Christian, the pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Christmas Church in Bethlehem (a member church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land, or ELCJHL), and the founder and president of the Diyar Consortium, a group of Lutheran-based, ecumenically-oriented institutions serving the Bethlehem area.

In June 2010 Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, gave a talk in Madison, WI entitled “Keys to Understanding the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict”. The Bright Stars of Bethlehem, the US-based fund-raising organization for Christmas Lutheran Church and its ministries, has now posted the videos in seven parts.

I will post these in seven separate posts that will allow you to get a Palestinian perspective of the conflict in the Middle East.

  1. thanks for these posts and this perspectives. It is important for American (and other) Protestant Evangelicals to realize that there ARE Christians who are Palestinian, and there is important work that God is doing among the Palestinians for the sake of Christ and His Kingdom.
