Sayidna Elias Witnesses to Truth of History

Sayidna Elias Chacour speaks on Israel and Palestine and plight of Christians. The speech is to a group of Presbyterians earlier this year.

As a side note, many Protestants seem to forget or just ignore that Christianity has a long and treasured history in many parts of the world, including the Middle East. I am always chagrined when Protestants tell me how wonderful it was that they went to "spread the Gospel" in places like Ukraine, Mexico, or other places in which they are in fact preaching Protestantism to Catholics and Orthodox.

The greatest tragedy is the blind eye turned to the Christians of the Holy Land in the face of notions that when Israel is purely Jewish the Temple will be rebuilt and the Second Coming will occur. Please, God, let me never presume to force your hand. Your Will be done!
