Does violence continue or love and humanity prevail?

By Patrirach Emeritus Michel Sabbah

In Nazareth, it is a pause against violence. Last week's victim was artist Tawfiq al-Zahar, a 60-year-old artist who shared the joy of people in the city. He was struck by a stray bullet while holding his grandson's hand in the public street at a bakery while buying bread for him and for his grandson. There, when bread and the source of life became violent and victimized, they added to the number of victims in Nazareth and in the entire Arab community in Israel. Each week has one or more victims.

In the Arab world, a conflict with the self is going on. There is no distinction between good and bad. Everyone is responsible for having a good society and a single heart. Everyone should ask oneself: Political leaders, security men, clerics, and heads of families. Does violence continue or love and humanity prevail over everyone?
What is important is that the entire Arab community reaches its own goal in a greater struggle with freedom and equality, so that its strength will not be diverted by turning it into a conflict with the brothers.

What is important in Nazareth is also to reach the desired result, which is to be one heart in all its components, in terms of religion, political parties and all kinds of pluralism in an Arab society. It is possible. Nazareth is a heritage of the world, the mystery of God, in which it began, and the world still views it as a doctrine and a horizon of life. The impact of God remains in it. Nazareth is a heritage of the world, a heritage of its people, a place of residence and daily living. It is called to be a city of peace, and its people are one heart. I believe that it is able to do so with its entire people and its human energies and what they have in it from the history of carrying the goodness of God in it.
I pray to God that the light of Nazareth reaches the hearts of all the people of Nazareth and begin a new era with a new heart. And I pray that the Arab community Israel becomes vigilant to what is going on and not get weakened in light of the differences in the Arab community. It has to be strengthened by being in unison with regards to that attainment of the major goal, namely maintain the dignity of every person Israel.
