Palestinian Pentecostals


Pentecostals & Charismatics for Peace & Justice uploaded a video to YouTube this month about Pentecostals in Palestine. You can imagine the angle it takes, beginning with a guy who says that “we don’t hear about this in the West—never heard of this wall, never heard of the refugee camps, never heard of the settlements.” That’s hard to believe.

This video is as biased toward Palestinians as a video by their evangelical counterparts would be biased toward Israel.

All of the comments seem to come from Christians who have very little prior knowledge of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which makes them quite impressionable.

One of the more measured comments came from a Guatemalan missionary: “I’ve had to unlearn part of my theology—to be open-minded to hear these pastors, worship with these people and not just think they are all terrorists and killers.”
