Christian Friends of Israel says it's 'shocked and saddened'...
The Olive Tree
The Olive Tree airs every week on Premier Christian Radio. In an effort to help Christians in the West better understand events that are happening in Israel and the wider Middle East, each programme asks the simple question, "What is God doing in Israel and the Palestinian Areas today?".
These programmes are recorded in Israel with believers who live there - both Jewish believers and Palestinian Christians. It is their voices you hear as they share their stories; it is a window into their lives and the everyday challenges they face, which are invariably costly.
The aim of The Olive Tree Reconciliation Fund is to build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Palestinian/Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the PA) and Christians worldwide.
There is great need amongst the body of believers in Israel and the wider Middle East. By telling the stories of these people through the media, we hope Christians in the nations will be encouraged to take an active and prayerful interest.
