You all know that an issue I care deeply about is getting Palestinians recognized as human beings (and treated as such). Another victory is around the corner, as the current leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, is prepared to sign a treaty recognizing the State of Palestine.
Many people do not realize that Christian Palestinians are badly affected by the severe military oppression that Israel has instituted illegally occupied lands. While it shouldn’t take a Christian being persecuted for Christians to stand up against oppression, I am overjoyed by recent progressions in the international community in standing up for human rights.

Long live Palestine! Welcome to the human race, my friends.
