Palestinian Christians: “Tens years since returning to Palestine”

It has been ten years since I returned to Palestine after living in the US for nearly three decades.

Those ten years in Palestine have been truly phenomenal and inspirational despite the pains and agony associated with them. For example, they are bracketed by an attack on Gaza in 2008 when we saw hundreds of Palestinian civilians murdered and by the attacks on Gaza and on the freedom flotilla trying to break the blockade of Gaza in 2018.
