From Israel to Palestine

"Child soldiers, child labourers, child prostitution and trafficking, the list is unending -extends from one country, culture, clime, or continent to the next. We see Palestinian children donning guns and sacrificial bandanas in Hamas rallies, and then we turn around and we see Israeli children writing notes on bombs as they are to be dropped on Lebanese children. This spiral of madness has no origin, no end.

As Christians around the world celebrate the birth of one Palestinian child, the Jesus of Nazareth, the Prince of Peace, the world at large must stand still and reflect - for far beyond any given culture or religion something is deeply rotten in a world that kills its own children. The ideological battle lines, the political partisanship, the civilisational divides all fade and disappear in light of a far graver calamity that the world faces."
