Mar Elias Education Institutions were founded by Elias Chacour, a Melkite Catholic priest from Galilee who experienced persecution when, at the age of eight in the 1940s he saw his parents being evicted from their village, Biram, in Upper Galilee, following the arrival of Jewish immigrants, who then hired Chacour's parents to pick figs and olives on what used to be their own land. Chacour?s best selling autobiography is titled ?Blood Brothers?. He received the Niwango Peace Price last year. Read more about Elias Chacour in http://www.comeandsee.co.il/article.php?sid=13
