Bishop Younan Urges Civil Leaders to Unite for Sake of Palestine

Bishop Younan joined religious and civil leaders at a gathering last Saturday to urge Palestinians to focus on the common goal of ending the Israeli occupation and achieving the two-state solution of two equal, viable states living side by side in peace and justice.

“What joins us should be greater than what divides us: our just and legitimate struggle for an end to the occupation and a Palestinian state,” he said.

He quoted Proverb 14:34, “righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people,” calling the recent infighting and violence “the shame of our people.”
