“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” - Micah 6:8

To understand the root causes of the unrest in the Holy Land come to this event:

NAKBA - Remembering Palestine's 1948 Disaster and Mothers March - Walking in Solidarity



The Nakba is the expulsion of over 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and land, and the destruction of Palestinian society during the creation of the State of Israel – a destruction that continues today – an ongoing Nakba.

The Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe) of 1948 has been called the poisonous root of all that has plagued the Holy Land since that time, with a never-ending impact that pervades the Middle East and the entire world.

Check out this video produced by United Methodists ( Knowing the Nakba: The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine for the Creation of the State of Israel ( – The video is linked from the Micah page on our church website.
