About to give up on reconciliation in Israel-Palestine? Don't. Watch this interview with Salim Munayer of Musalaha
Like many people, I am thirsty for a different kind of voice in the maelstrom of voices over Israel-Palestine. How can we look with clear eyes at the conflict? Is there a hopeful path to follow? Has anyone got anything to say that is not ultimately one-sided?
Salim Munayer does, and our conversation made for a very different Monday morning at work this week.
Dr Salim Munayer is director of Musalaha reconciliation ministry in Israel-Palestine and a trustee of Church Mission Society. He co-authored Through My Enemy's Eyes, with Lisa Loden.
Here, he discusses the ABC of reconciliation, what might be a Christlike response to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and challenges the Church in the West about its apathy and seeming lack of desire to speak up for Christians in the Middle East.
I interviewed Salim at the CMS offices in Oxford on 11 August 2014.
