Terra Santa News 01/08/2014
THIS WEEK ON TV: The tragedy in Gaza told by those who experienced it: we open Terra Santa News with images of the wounded taken to Saint Joseph Hospital in Jerusalem. We continue with another plight that has involved bloodshed in the Middle East: the persecution of Christians in Iraq and Syria after the rise of the caliphate. A story of rebirth and hope comes from the Parents Circle, an association formed by Israelis and Palestinians who have lost a family member in the conflict and who are now working for dialogue and peace. We close this edition with children and young people of Taybeh, the only entirely Christian village in Palestine: the parishes of various denominations have organized a youth summer camp that features games and that gives everyone involved an opportunity to grow.
