Watch SIXTY MINUTES, and a note about Sabeel in D.C.

Watch `60 Minutes' this Sunday, April 22
The story about the shrinking population of the Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land will be broadcast on “60 Minutes” this Sunday, 22 April 2012, at 7:00 P.M. (EDT).

Lutheran Pastor Mitri Raheb was interviewed as part of production for this news story.(Of course there's no way to know how much, if any, of that interview might be used)

Bob Simon reports on the slow exodus from the Holy Land of Palestinian Christians, who say life in the middle of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has become too difficult. Harry Radliffe is the producer.
For those of you who do not have access to CBS News in your area, you can watch the story on their website at

The story will be posted on Sunday evening after it airs on TV. There will also be an added feature about Taybeh on CBS’s online program called “60 Minutes Overtime” at;cnav
