INTIFADA: No Peace in Bethlehem

By Sister Marcelle Theresa, SPC

Sr. Marcelle Theresa a placid and unflappable Filipino Sister from Cagayan de Oro City, find herself in the midst of the INTIFADA: the prolonged Arab uprising in the occupied territories. She is bewildered but she trust in God and asks Him to lead her on quietly in faith.

            In 1967, a war between the Arabs and the Israelis resulted in the occupation by Israel of certain Arab territories: Sinai, Gaza, Golan Heights, the West Bank and a part of Jerusalem. Sinai has been returned to Egypt but the other territories remain under Israeli control.
