Palestinian Christian Leader Quoted at International Court of Justice

When lawyer Blinne Ní Ghrálaigh delivered her powerful address before the ICJ on behalf of South Africa, she quoted the Palestinian Lutheran pastor in Bethlehem: “I want you to look in the mirror and ask: where was I when Gaza was going through a genocide?”

South Africa is here, at the ICJ, Ní Ghrálaigh responded.

The pastor, Rev. Munther Isaac, expressed his appreciation in an X post. His Dec. 23 Christmas sermon from which she quoted, which has been viewed by over a million people, Arab News reported Jan. 10, but Reverend Isaac responded that he feels he has not made any progress as long as the war still continues.
