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!!!
