Prayer for Peacemakers 1 August 2018  Palestine

 

 

Let us hold the Palestinian people in the light.

 

(Inspired by the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi)

God, make us instruments of your justice,

Where there is a false and untenable peace

let us sow dissent;

Where there is injustice, fury;

Where there is oppression, hope;

Where there is false fluorescence, profound darkness;

Where there is social depression, life;

AL-KHALIL/HEBRON: “They only wanted to punish me”


AL-KHALIL/HEBRON: 
They only wanted to punish me

“At 2 a.m. in the morning on Friday, June 23, I woke up with someone knocking on my house door and I knew what was coming. When I opened the door about twenty-five soldiers entered my house. They didn’t even let me change and immediately ordered me to wake everyone in my house. My son was sleeping in the living room; my other children were in their rooms. I had to wake them all. They put us all together in the living room and kept our cellphones and cameras.

“During the hour they were there, with the excuse of searching for guns, the soldiers raided my house. They threw all of our clothes on the floor and knocked things over to intimidate and humiliate us. They were not searching for anything; they only wanted to punish me.

“My son was handcuffed and blindfolded and they took him. When I asked, ‘why are you taking my kid? ‘They just said, ‘you will find out soon.’

Prayers for Peacemakers 13 June 2018  Palestine

#GreatReturnMarch in Al-Khalil (Hebron) on May 14th, supporting Gaza's protests for the right to return. 

Pray for the families, the friends, co-workers, and neighbours of the Palestinians killed during the March of Return.  Pray for the journalists and the medics who continue their work despite the uncertainty of safety and despite the sorrow over colleagues who were murdered. Pray for the human rights monitors who are beaten and threatened with death for exposing the crimes of the Israeli military. Pray for those who continue to march and continue to struggle for freedom and survival.

Pray for the world to see the atrocity of the occupation and demand justice. Pray for a free Palestine.
