Sara can’t even bring himself to offer to his fellow Palestinians the ambivalent message of St. Augustine to early Christians about the Jews: “Do Not Slay Them!”


Alex Awad, co-founder of the anti-Israel, anti-Zionism 'Christ at the Checkpoint' conferencesA small group of Palestinian Christians are actively promoting an anti-Israel narrative built on a re-definition of the gospel.

Yohanna Katanacho speaks at the Christ at the Checkpoint conference in 2016According to Katanacho, an Arab Israeli citizen, “Jewishness in Israel has become an obsession for Israeli Jews and a nightmare for Palestinians because of its extremist views and determination to create a world filled with masters and slaves. ...The Jewish dream has become a mantra for the hatred of one’s neighbor.”
