Palestinians have a tremendous charism of hospitality. I have visited the West Bank and Jerusalem 5 times since 2000 AD. Contrary to general opinion, it is very safe for "internationals" who are not involved with occupying forces or with dissident groups.

Please, go to Palestine and see the Living Stones, the Christians of Jesus' land. You'll get a welcome that will warm your heart whenever you recall it. Bishop Elias Chacour has a thrilling personal story "BLOOD BROTHERS." Do read it and understand and pray. He is deservedly accorded enormous respect in the Galilee; a couple of years ago he was graced by God to quieten and dissolve a vast lethal confrontation between enraged Arab Israelis and the Israeli police and defence forces.

In the occupied West Bank the Christians and Muslims co-operate and respect each other in their critically desperate circumstances. Sabeel is a non-violent Palestinian inter-church group that works for Justice and Peace and Reconciliation in the Holy Land - they're a great crew, and Archbishop Chacour has long been a member of their board. This holy man - and I don't attribute holiness lightly - pre-dates the Israeli occupation of Palestine in 1948 - he belongs to the Land.

The situation in the Holy Land puts so many of our small concerns into perspective. I would say that a visit with eyes wide open and a fair mind to today's Holy Land is a conversion experience.
