On Dec. 11, 2009, Palestinian Christians issued a heartfelt, sober, prayerful, urgent cry for help to end the U.S.-backed Israeli occupation. Their Kairos document was called: “A Moment of Truth: A Word of Faith, Hope and Love from the Heart of Palestinian Suffering.” Yesterday, after two years of work, Christian leaders from around the United States, calling themselves Kairos USA, released an official response. I urge every Christian in the U.S. to read the response (as well as the original Kairos Palestine document), to pray over it, talk about it and join the growing movement to end the occupation.

  1. Fr John Dears article is so bazaar it is an embarrassment for the Catholic church. Read the entire article and then Mark Roses reply. I am stunned absolutely stunned that a catholic priest could be sooo ignorant!

  2. @ Patrick Brennan – throwing out derogatory terms with no effort to substantiate your point of view is what children do. There is simply no denying that pretty much the entire world community believes that Palestinians are being systematically subject to ethnic cleansing policies by the state of Israel, and that Israel carries out those policies with financial and military funding from the United States. Your being “absolutely stunned” doesn’t change that fact.
