Italian Pilgrims Visit Al-liqa Center
1 July 2014
A group of Italian pilgrims visited Al-Liqa' Center in order to familiarize
themselves with programs and goals of the center.
Dr. Geries S. Khoury presented an overview of the Center as well as living
conditions in Palestine and what is happening in the majority of Arab countries
as far as violence and killings which are supported by several Arab and Western
countries. Political and religious extremism threaten stability and security in
the Middle East and the world.
Dr. Khoury added that there is no peace process between Israel and Palestinians.
And it looks like the world community is not interested in a just solution of
the conflicts which concerns us as Palestinians: Muslims and Christians. At the
end of the gathering Dr. Khoury asked the pilgrims to carry with them a true
picture of what they see in the Holy Land such as the oppression and the total
lack of mobility for the Palestinians. In Palestine, the people feel that they
live in a big prison surrounded with high prison walls. Unfortunately, no one is
listening to our cries of help!!!
