Julia Fisher talks to Fardi – Fardi was born in Gaza into an orthodox Christian family. The majority of people living in Gaza today are Muslim – Islam there has become extreme, political and dangerous … not many Christians live there now. I met Fardi recently in Bethlehem. He had to leave Gaza 12 years ago for his own safety. And so he fled with his wife and daughter and came to live in Bethlehem where he has slowly rebuilt his life. His story gives a rare insight into life in Gaza … Fardi started by describing his early life there.
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.
