Julia Fisher talks to Elias – Whilst in Israel recently, recording interviews for this programme, I visited Bethlehem, which is in the West Bank, to meet a Christian from Gaza called Elias. Gaza is frequently in the news and is one of the most controversial places on earth. The majority of people who live there are Muslims – but, there are some Christians, although their numbers are fast diminishing. This interview is one man’s story of life in Gaza, finding faith there, before leaving.
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.
