Kairos Ireland is part of an international movement responding to a call for solidarity with Palestinians and action to end the occupation of Palestine by Israel. This call, made by Church leaders in Jerusalem, describes the occupation as ‘a sin against God and humanity because it deprives the Palestinians of their basic human rights, bestowed by God. It distorts the image of God in the Israeli who has become an occupier just as it distorts this image in the Palestinian living under occupation.’
In Kairos Ireland we are an ecumenical group who have seen the occupation for ourselves and long for the day when justice and peace will embrace, and all the people of Palestine and Israel will enjoy equality, dignity and respect regardless of religion or ethnicity. We call on Christians and all people of good will in Ireland to join us in this quest.
