Bethlehem Catholic Priest Ibrahim Shomali said, “I am here, born here, and my ID says I am from Bethlehem” in response to U.S. presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s claim in December that Palestinians are an “invented people”.
Shomali speaks for his congregation in opposition to Israel’s settlements and the Separation Wall in the West Bank.
He spoke to the Run Across Palestine’s media team Tuesday. Follow the upcoming Run Across Palestine at www.RunAcrossPalestine.org
