Julia Fisher talks to Nashat Filmon – an Arab Christian born in Jerusalem where today he is director of the Palestinian Bible Society. When I visited Nashat at his office I found him watching the news, in Arabic. He was looking at violent scenes on the streets of Cairo. Nashat has an Egyptian background so I asked him for his explanation of what is going on in the Arab world at this time.
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
