Thank 60 minutes for story on Palestinian Christians

Posted on April 22, 2012 by Julie Brenton Rowe

The story about the shrinking population of the Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land was broadcast on “60 Minutes” Sunday, 22 April 2012, including an interview with the Rev Dr. Mitri Raheb of Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem. The story includes information about the Kairos document as well as Ambassador Michael Oren’s objections to the story, which he voiced to the President of CBS to before the piece aired. 

The video and script are at the CBS news website at http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18560_162-57417408/christians-of-the-holy-land/?tag=contentMain;cbsCarousel.  There is an added feature on “60 Minutes Overtime” at http://www.cbsnews.com/60minutesovertime?tag=hdr;cnav about Taybeh, a Palestinian town.

    The segment on 60 Minutes was very informative. Please get the word out for churches to post a link on their websites and FB pages to watch it. It would be good for the ELCA to produce a discussion guide for that segment. Coincidentally, we just saw the documentary “Man from Plains” which documents Jimmy Carter’s 2006 book tour for “Palestine: Peace not Apartheid.” Another piece worth viewing by all.
