Palestine: How do we retain hope for a peaceful future?

This ‘Middle East Analysis’ podcast comes just before Eid at the end of Ramadan and it’s only right that our thoughts and prayers are for the victims of the horrific bombings in Turkey, Iraq, Yemen and Saudi Arabia.

Today’s focus is on Palestine and our studio guest is Fr Jamal Khader, Dean of Arts at Bethlehem University and also Chair of its Department of Religious Studies.

Dr Harry Hagopian, the Bishops’ Middle East North Africa consultant, is in the interviewer’s hotseat to discuss a longer-term regional wound in the Holy Land.

Fr Khader discuss the realities of living in Palestine, fifty years of military occupation, the Bishops’ annual Holy Land Coordination pilgrimage and more.
