The First Day
A day of visiting the catholic site of the Shepherd’s Fields, the Church of the Nativity (the birth site of Christ), the old city streets of Bethlehem and the Centre for Palestinian Biodiversity and Nature. It’s not over yet either, this evening we have a talk from a Jonathan Kuttab.
Today has been amazing, but challenging and so eye opening to the awful treatment of Palestinian people by the Israeli State with its invasion by constructing illegal settlements on Palestinian territory and the restriction of movement imposed upon Palestinian people.
Quote of the day “Visiting Palestine is living in the Fifth Gospel of Christ”.
