This week we talk with Rev. Robert Assali, Chair of the Canadian Friends of Sabeel, about their recent statement calling on the new Canadian Office of Religious Freedom to investigate Israeli abuses at Holy Week. We also discuss the Kairos Bethlehem call â€“ “Here We Stand, Stand with us!”
We closed the show with excerpts of a statement by Prof. Mazin Qumsiyeh from the Bethlehem area, commenting on the Easter Holiday and the restrictions on Palestinians, both Christians and Moslems. Our final piece of music is by the legendary Lebanese singer, Fairuz, called â€œOld Jerusalemâ€ and we dedicate it to the Palestinian peopleâ€™s attachment to their land and their steadfastness in refusing to relinquish it.
