Today we’re starting a regular series on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and its effects on forced migration.
The last 60-70 years in this region have arguably seen some of the most large-scale displacement in world history, from Jewish families leaving the fallen, war-torn Nazi Germany to the humanitarian crisis of Palestinian refugee camps.
If you have any questions or thoughts, or if you have experience in this area and would like to contribute, please let us know in the comments or by contacting us.
Today we’re showing a short filmed interview of Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb. He identifies as a Palestinian, an Arab, a Christian, and a Lutheran minister. In this film he describes raising his family and running a church in Bethlehem, which is in West Bank just on the other side of the wall from Jerusalem.
