U.S. Bishops: Even the Barrier Wall and the New Colonies Close the Door to Peace PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 26 September 2014 09:34

altWashington - In the Holy Land, "the route of the barrier wall, the confiscation of Palestinian lands in the West Bank, especially now in the Bethlehem area and the Cremisan Valley, and any expansion of settlements threaten to undermine the two-state solution". This is what was expressed in a statement from 18 US prelates who made a prayer pilgrimage to Israel and the Palestinian Territories organized by the US Episcopal Commmision for justice and international peace, presided over by Bishop Richard E. Pates of the Diocese of Des Moines. In the days of the pilgrimage, held shortly after the last Israeli military operation in Gaza, the Bishops speak of "having encountered pain, intransigence and cynicism. But also saw signs of inspiration and hope". Many reported - they write - that the window of opportunity for peace was narrowing dangerously. If it closes, the futures of both Palestinians and Israelis will be harmed".

The Palestinian story of displacement is one that is constantly  changing and continues to serve as the root of the struggle.  While those in Palestine endure great challenges and lack resources, Palestinians possess the talent, passion, and camaraderie to unite and succeed.  While the majority of Palestinian people are displaced, they possess the heart and determination to create a great network that transcends international barriers.


This is the topic that our three expert panelists will be addressing at the HCEF 16th International Conference at the Washington Marriott Georgetown Hotel, onSaturday, October 18th from 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM.  On the panel will be Mr. Hashim Hani Shawa, Chairman of the Board and General Manager of the Bank of Palestine, which is regarded as the most successful bank in Palestine. Also joining us will be Mr. Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Farouk Systems, a revolutionary and highly successful line of hair-care products, widely used around the world.  Our final panelist, Mr. Rafiq Masri, is an information technology entrepreneur who founded the company Network Management Inc.

altReflections from HCEF President/CEO:

Humans are complex and deeply profound beings.  The various relationships and traits that we encompass collectively contribute to the essence of who we are.  Our faith, family roles, occupations and nationality all work together to shape the richness of our identity and how we fit into this world.  

An incredibly important point of identity for Palestinian Christians is our ethnicity which serves as the root of our suffering.

altThe war between Israel and Hamas has exasperated an already dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. After the 51-day war ended, Gaza’s fragile infrastructure including health, education, water and sanitation facilities and electrical infrastructure has sustained severe damages. Israel still bans construction materials from entering the Gaza Strip stalling major efforts to reconstruct local businesses, factories, public institutions, schools and homes. Gaza’s unemployment and poverty rates have been driven to higher levels due to the level of destruction. Thousands of families whose homes were damaged or destroyed remain homeless and continue to struggle to find adequate shelter.
