    New house demolition orders were issued against several Christian Palestinian families living in the Old City of Jerusalem, according to the Jerusalem Inter-Church Centre this June.

    Jerusalem's Greek Orthodox Patriarchate and Catholic Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land (Custodia Terra Sancta) accommodate over 500 Palestinian families in homes in the Old City. Christian homes and churches have for some time, according to the Inter-Church Centre, been facing difficulty in obtaining permits for renovation from the Israeli authorities in Jerusalem.

    The four families threatened with eviction say they have been contacted individually by the Israeli municipal authorities in Jerusalem and have already had court procedures instituted against them.

    One resident, Sami Wakileh, has described the initial court procedures, saying that he has been told by the judge that any defense against the eviction orders is “a waste of your precious time. Do not dream of receiving any permit…” Mr Wakileh has stated that he has spent over US$100,000 renovating the home he leases from the Church.

    Members of the Palestinian Christian community have strongly criticised the Israeli municipality's demolition orders, saying that Israeli settlers have freely received building permits in areas where Arab families are routinely denied permission to build or extend houses.

    Israel is planning to remove 23 "illegal outposts" from the West Bank in the course of a single day in response to mounting US demands that it halt all settlement activity, it was reported today.

    These outposts are defined as illegal by the Israeli government because they have not received planning permission. But under international law all settlements built on occupied territory are illegal. According to the Ha'aretz newspaper the outposts, housing 1,200 people, will all be evacuated and dismantled simultaneously following a decision by the Likud prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu

    1200 out of half a million?

    WOW!

    That is a bullcrap excuse. Israel says everyone needs a permit then it won't issue them to Palestinians.

    This document is the Christian Palestinians’ word to the world about what is happening in Palestine. It is written at this time when we wanted to see the Glory of the grace of God in this land and in the sufferings of its people. In this spirit the document requests the international community to stand by the Palestinian people who have faced oppression, displacement, suffering and clear apartheid for more than six decades. The suffering continues while the international community silently looks on at the occupying State, Israel. Our word is a cry of hope, with love, prayer and faith in God. We address it first of all to ourselves and then to all the churches and Christians in the world, asking them to stand against injustice and apartheid, urging them to work for a just peace in our region, calling on them to revisit theologies that justify crimes perpetrated against our people and the dispossession of the land.

    In this historic document, we Palestinian Christians declare that the military occupation of our land is a sin against God and humanity, and that any theology that legitimizes the occupation is far from Christian teachings because true Christian theology is a theology of love and solidarity with the oppressed, a call to justice and equality among peoples.
