Palestinian Memories-The Story of a Palestinian Mother and Her People

9Mar

Awad_Huda-01.jpgIn this video presentation, our Palestinian friend, Rev. Alex Awad, tells the remarkable and inspiring story of his mother, Huda Awad, who was left as a widow with seven children in 1948, during the Zionist takeover of Palestine. Alex gives a unique look at the Israeli/Palestine conflict as a Palestinian Christian. This presentation is based on his fascinating book, "Palestinian Memories: The Story of a Palestinian Mother and Her People." Alex's older brother, Bishara, founded the evangelical Christian college, Bethlehem Bible College in 1979. Alex served as the pastor at the East Jerusalem Baptist Chruch and Dean of Student Affairs at Bethlehem Bible College. Sadly, most American Christians are unaware of the plight of Palestinians Christians. In addition to watching Alex's presentation, we recommend this article by Alex Awad that will challenge those Christians who believe that God gave the land of Israel in 1948 to Jews only: "Palestinian Christians in the Shawdow of Christian Zionists."
