Kairos Palestine, a group of Palestinian Christians, denounces Michael
Oren's recent op-ed "Israel and the Plight of Mideast Christians,"
published in The Wall Street Journal.
In this inaccurate and
manipulative text, Oren, Israel's ambassador to the US, blames the
plight of Palestinian Christians on oppression at the hands of
Palestinian Muslims -- rather than at the hands of the illegal Israeli
occupation itself, as is our reality.
We add our voices to
several other responses that have emphasized this reality and the ways
in which Oren's op-ed attempts to mask it. Indeed, contrary to his
assertions, Christian persecution is caused mainly by the occupation
that systematically degrades all Palestinians, restricts our movement,
confiscates our land, devastates our economy, and violates our rights --
including the very basic right to a decent life.
