The panel, moderated by Dr. Robert Danin, was titled “Changing Policy through Awareness and Advocacy,” and featured seasoned experts Tom Farr, Director of the Religious Freedom Project Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs; Nermien Riad, Executive Director  of Coptic Orphans; Dr. James Zogby, President of the Arab American Institute (AAI) and Vice Chair of USCIRS , Sir Rateb Rabie KHSC, President/CEO of the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation; and Nina Shea, Director of the Center for Religious Freedom, Hudson Institute (not shown). 

“I am not a scholar, a priest, or a politician,” were Sir Rateb Rabie’s opening words at the second panel of the IDC Summit this past Thursday, “I am just a Palestinian Christian with a mission.” He began by recounting his experience as a college student in the United States where he learned how difficult it was for American Christians to connect Christianity with the Middle East. Sir Rateb was the only representative of the Palestinian Christians at the Summit and he emphasized the need to raise awareness about Palestinian Arab Christians of the Holy Land. His message was inspiring, to the point, and had a sliver of wisdom for each of the participating groups in attendance.

1) When and how did you get to the Holy Land? Why have you decided to dedicate this time of your life to the local Church? What is your motivation?
We moved to Jerusalem in February 2014, accepting the invitation from His Beatitude Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal, and Bishop William Shomali, to join the LPJ on its mission to love and to serve the Mother Church and the Christians of the Holy Land.
We have been traveling to the Holy Land for the last five years, and after deep and “in loco” understanding the mission of the Catholic Church in the Middle East, as well as their true needs and challenges; we decided to devote some years of our lives to volunteer service to the Church and to the Christian communities. Our main motivation has always been service to others and charitable spirit. Due to the nature of our professional lives, we had to change countries and cultures several times, but we always allowed time for our volunteer work, and to provide assistance to institutions and individuals requiring our support.

1. We, the leaders of Evangelical and Protestant churches and organizations affiliated to the Supreme Council of the Evangelical Community in Syria and Lebanon, have met together at this critical juncture of our history in order to reflect on the current situation, and on the tragic events that our people in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon are passing through. We are most concerned over the great human suffering and political difficulties that our people in these countries are facing. We have deeply reflected upon this deteriorating state of affairs, and have been greatly disturbed and shocked by the ugly incidents of violence that innocent civilians and entire communities, especially Christian, have been subjected to.

INTERVIEW - “The West should intervene in a logical way, not only intervene when its interests are threatened …The international community and the United States have ‘gifted’ all extremists, all these Europe crazies who have found refuge in Syria.” Thus, Fouad Twal, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, commented on the issue of Iraq with effective clarity and in this interview with “Avvenire” on September 5, 2014 draws attention to the tragedy of Gaza and the unheard voice of the patriarchs of the Church in the Middle East.

JERUSALEM – The General Administration’s mission is to manage the material aspect of the life and works of the Latin Patriarchate. It receives and distributes donations of benefactors of the Patriarchate, the Order of the Holy Sepulcher in the first place. The Latin Patriarchate is aware of the humanitarian needs of the people and appeals for assistance are supervised and managed by the Office of the General Administration of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem. Many appeals for humanitarian assistance emanate from priests serving pastoral needs, and most cases stem from the extreme conditions which exist as a result of the political situation. In the present circumstances people are not able to provide for essential and critical medical emergencies. And, based upon needs and availability of funds, the Patriarchate provides humanitarian assistance.

The weeklong celebration included a pilgrimage of young people from five countries who walked seven days together, worship services with strong ecumenical representation from different countries, concerts, workshops and seminars. More than 12,000 participants took part in the celebrations.
