Martin Clay writes his personal experience attending "Christ at the Checkpoint" conference of bringing together Palestinian and international Evangelical Christians concerning the theology of the land.
"The conference, open to local residents as well as nationals and internationals, as well as focusing on the shadow cast over the West Bank and all Palestinians by the damaging ethnic implications of the beliefs of Christian Zionism, was a forum for worship in English and Arabic, for investigating issues such as the principles of non-violence (non-violence we learned is not the same as peace but a technique for activism), and the position of Palestinian Christians within Israel, and for visits to the Checkpoint to give delegates an insight into what local people faced at 6 am in the morning".
