Hamas & Pakistan - Congressional Working Group on Religious Freedom

The Congressional Working Group
on Religious Freedom
&
Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom
Invite you to a briefing on
Hamas’ Repression of Christians
with
Justus Reid Weiner
Author of Human Rights of Christians in Palestinian Society

Thousands of Palestinian Christians are leaving Palestine every year, notes Justus Reid Weiner, Scholar-in-Residence at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, and the issue has received scant attention. Weiner’s recent study paints “a picture of extortion, rapes, murder, forced marriages, heavy discrimination and, in the case of one Muslim convert to Christianity, murder” (BBC News, 12.5.05). The study was also featured in Christianity Today. Justus Reid Weiner will discuss his study of Christian exodus and what the Congressional Working Group can do.
