That Justice and Peace might embrace

Christians in Palestine and Israel have called for solidarity by believers and people of good-will throughout the world in their struggle against apartheid and injustice under Israeli occupation.

In a document (linked below) we in Kairos Ireland re-publish a 2017 letter from a collective of Palestinian Christian organisations and then react to the challenge of the 2009 Kairos Palestine call for action by Church leaders in Jerusalem.

This document – published for Advent 2018 – is an Irish response to a call for solidarity by Palestinian Christians.
