altINTERVIEW  – Speaking on Pope Francis’ visit to Turkey this weekend, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem says security risks cannot prevent the Jesuit Pontiff from doing his mission and reaching out to the “periphery.” In an interview with Zenit on November 26, after the leader of the Italian bishops, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, returned from Gaza and spoke to his nation’s bishops in Assisi, His Beatitude Patriarch Fouad Twal not only spoke about the need to courageously confront situations facing Turkey and the Holy Land, but also shared how the January meeting of European bishops will not be held in Europe, but rather in Jerusalem, and why.

altHOLY LAND – the situation in Jerusalem is still very tense and fears of a third Intifada are there. At the center of this hot reality, what is the vocation of the Church in the Holy Land? Roberto Piermarini asked Fr David Neuhaus, Patriarchal Vicar for Hebrew-speaking Catholics, in an interview with Radio Vatican.

alt

This priest has been a tool used by Israeli authorities to divide Christians living in Israel between those few who seek benefits out of serving in the Israeli army and those who are indigenous people of this land and who seek equal rights . Israel has taken Naddaf under its cover and now is sending him to international forums to present a manipulated picture of the Palestinian Christians. His church, the Greek Orthodox Church and community announced earlier their dismay over this man’s unacceptable actions. [i]  http://www.ehna.tv/play/3085/.
