israel and palestine conflit


On Monday, November 13, 2023, we reconnected with Brother Peter Bray, vice-chancellor of Bethlehem University, which is the only Catholic university in Palestine.

The participants:

  • Brother Peter Bray (Bethlehem University)
  • Father Dave Smith (Fighting Fathers Ministries)
  • Father Mark Battison (President, Friends of Sabeel, Australia)
  • Rev. Dr Stephen Sizer (Director of the Peacemaker Trust, UK)

Peter updated us on the struggle for Palestinian people in Bethlehem, the West Bank, and Gaza.


This is a simple introduction to the Israel/Palestine conflict is courtesy of Jewish Voice for Peace.

For those of us who are familiar with the real history of the Levant since 1948 this short video will do know more than restate the obvious. Those though who are only familiar with the Zionist narrative will find some hard truths here that need to be absorbed.
