Christian Palestinians call for an end to Gaza blockade


People often think of the Israel Palestine conflict as a clash between Judaism and Islam. But there are a smaller number of Palestinian Christians who are also caught up in the conflict. This week two leaders of the Palestinian Christian community have come to Australia to raise awareness of the plight of the Palestinian population. Rifat Kassis and Constantine Dabbagh are here as guests of the Australian Council of Churches. They come bearing a message that is highly critical of Israel’s tight military blockade of the Gaza strip. They say that the population of Gaza desperately needs more of the raw materials and building supplies that the Gaza aid Flotilla attempted to deliver in May.
