Julia Fisher talks to Marcel Rebiai – On this programme we ask one simple question, what is God doing in Israel and the wider Middle East today? How are we to make sense of the current unrest that is causing such turmoil in the Arab nations? Does the Bible have anything specific to say about this? And what about reconciliation between Jew and Arab … is this possible against such a troubled backdrop? To help answer these questions, I met Marcel Rebiai recently at his home in Jerusalem, which incidentally, overlooks Mount Zion! Marcel is leader of The Community of Reconciliation working amongst both Jews and Palestinians. Here’s what he had to say.
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.
