Tens of Palestinians Christians and Muslims from the major Governorate area in Palestine attended a panel in which panelists H.B. Patriarch Michael Sabbah and Dr. Hamzeh Theeb Mustafa discussed the topic “For a New Education for Muslims and Christians”, which was moderated by Dr. Geries S. Khoury of Al-Liqa’. Dr. Khoury welcomed the invitees wishing them “a holy month of Ramadan” and hoping that peace and justice will prevail in Palestine and in Arab countries as well as in the whole world.


At the end of the panel, invitees as well as Al-Liqa’ and Sabeel centers issued a public announcement calling for an end to bloodshed in the Arab nation. Likewise, they protested the violation of the sanctity of Muslim and Christian sanctuaries in Palestine from Zionists who only know hatred the latest of which was the violation of the sanctity of the Church of Tabgha (Tiberias) and its total burning of all its content of holy books, documents, icons and sacred vessels. Following the panel the Mufti of Bethlehem did the required prayers before the Christian Muslim Joint Iftar.
