Sabeel's Naim Attek on KUOW radio

Hear an interview with Naim Ateek of Sabeel on KUOW-radio, Puget Sound Public Radio, at the University of Washington in Seattle.

"Arab Christians in Palestine: A Conversation with Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek"
How will peace come? Mired in the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians — an ecumenical grassroots movement called Palestinian Liberation Theology is doing their part to bring education, reconciliation and peace. The group "seeks to provide a holistic vision of God's redeeming activity in the midst of the current reality."

Here is a link to the program:

KUOW's Steve Scher interviews Naim Ateek, a Palestinian Anglican priest and an Arab citizen of Israel. His latest book is A Palestinian Christian Cry for Reconciliation. Ateek is the director of Sabeel, an ecumenical theological center in Jerusalem, which he founded to work for the liberation of Palestinians. He is the author of Justice and Only Justice: A Palestinian Theology of Liberation and co–editor of Faith and the Intifada: Palestinian Christian Voices.
