Below is an excerpt from the second blog post from Ruairi ( Henchy). Ruairi is in Gaza on the ” Welcome to Gaza Convoy”.
…..He (Archbishop Alexios of Tiberias,Greek Orthodox church of St. Porphyrius in Gaza City ) is keen to stress a message of brotherhood and unity in the shared struggle for Palestinian self-determination:
“The people in Gaza, they are suffering, because there is no freedom. We are free in the prison, in a big cage… And if you don’t have freedom… you don’t have anything… You cannot realise your freedom… The people they are human being[s] so it’s first of all [a] spiritual [issue]. [You] have a spirit and if your spirit [is] not free, you cannot have peace in yourself… It’s first the spirit, then the body.”
