A Group of Italian pilgrims Visit

27 February 2013

Dr. Geries S. Khoury met a group of Italian pilgrims led by Dr. Guido in Galilee hotel in Nazareth’s in the evening of the 27th of February 2013. Discussions in this gathering included the importance of encounter between pilgrims and members of the local church in the Holy Land. These latter put forth their status inside of Israel or in the occupied territories and spoke about their suffering under the occupation or on few laws which discriminate them inside the state of Israel.

Of course there was a discussion revolving around Al-Liqa’ Center and the Palestinian inter-religious dialogue between Christians and Muslims and about the importance of inter-faith dialogue, local theology and how to read the Bible in the land of the Bible.
