Julia Fisher talks to Labib Madanat – Today we continue with our journey through the heart of the West Bank – an area within Israel that is highly contentious, always in the news, where both Palestinians and Jewish people live in separate communities. Labib Madanat accompanied our group as we travelled – he is an Arab Christian and director of Bible Society work in the middle east. You join us now as we pause our journey through the West Bank at a high point in the road from where we could see two small communities – one Jewish, the other Palestinian. Labib wanted us to know what life was like for both peoples.
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.
