Israel and Palestine

Wednesday, July 9 at 7:00 p.m.
Israel and Palestine Up-close and Personal.

A presentation and discussion with Paul Rehm, a Christian Peacemaker Teams member recently returned from the West Bank. The Pastoral Center, 40 North Main Avenue in Albany. "They come in the middle of the night, some with blackened faces, all with automatic weapons....Who are they, these men and women who steal food and clothing meant for students, orphans and needy families in Hebron, who raid and destroy bakeries that make the bread for the orphans’ breakfast? They're Israeli soldiers who came in a rumbling convoy of jeeps and trucks during early morning hours of the last day of April.” ~ Paul Rehm
