The Holy Land – a land that’s been called the “Fifth Gospel” and yet a place where Christianity has declined from at least 75% to 25% in the last 60 years. The construction by Israel of a concrete wall around the Palestinian Territories has increased the flow of Christians leaving the Holy Land. There are presently about 50,000 Palestinian Christians still living in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza, and another 200,000 living in Israel. This number is dwindling. Mark Riedemann interviews the Patriarch of the Latin Patriarchate in Jerusalem, Archbishop Fouad Twal, about the present and future of Christians living there.
