Verified Purchase. I grew up in a Christian church that spoke so often about Israel becoming a nation again as the Bible so accurately prophesied.

I was taught to love the Jewish people, and I did and still do. The criminal behavior done to those people, albeit not to the same scale, was way too parallel to what Germany did to the Jews. I suppose we as humans tend to do to others what was done to us. This book is sobering and screams at our need to love each other. Elias lived, and still lives, how Jesus taught us to live, under the most vile and horrifying circumstances, being treated by people I thought would have "learned" what it's like to treat others with hatred that it's not something to repeat on another group of people.

As the book started out in his childhood in an enviable place with incredible family connections, my heart so yearned to know more of it. Then the changes started. I am thankful for my neighbor, Nabil, who "loaned" me a copy until I purchased it on Kindle for continuing his friendly encouragement to read this book.

We're all in this world together. None of us gets out of this alive. We so need to wake up. Elias sets and example and tells a story that makes it so clear that love is always the best option. And it always is an option. But if taking our side would. We do not need such friendship. We need one more common friend. We do not need one more enemy.

I highly recommend the book, Blood Brothers. Archbishop Chacour provides an insightful account of the struggle of the Palestinian people under the oppressive rule of the Zionists.

He carefully distinguishes between the Zionists and the Jewish people. I was shocked to read of the Zionists soldiers packing Palestinian men and boys into trucks and disappearing with them.

It was reminiscent of the Nazis who would afflict this atrocity on the Jewish people. What about the killing field Chacour encountered as a young child.

Did these Zionists learn nothing? As a Christian, I am baffled at the Zionists willingness to do to the Palestinian people what was done to them in the Holocaust. Their behavior has been quite shameful.

Blood Brothers was an eye-opener for me. I am definitely pro-Israel, and have been over there twice. On each occasion, I have had wonderful interaction with Palestinians. This book showed me a whole different side of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. There are no easy answers, but Brother Chacour reminds us to be peacemakers and pursue peaceful resolution, I want the Palestinian people to be treated fairly and honorably.

What I didn't know was that many Palestinians had their land, their homes stolen from them. I was always led to believe that the Jews bought all the land they occupied from the Palestinian landowners, often at exorbitant prices. I'm sure the truth is somewhere in the middle, but I don't dispute Elias Chacour's account of how his family's village and home was stolen by the Zionists early on, and how some villages were razed by the Israeli army because of supposed terrorism.

I definitely recommend this book. It has changed my views towards Palestinians and given me much more empathy, and greatly influenced my prayers for them and the state of Israel. Unfortunately, as long as they celebrate terrorists and reward their families for terrorist acts, the Israeli army will continue to respond with an iron fist. As Elias Chacour would say we need to pray for both sides and look for ways to bring about a peace in Israel.

It is rare to read a book that is so engaging, inspiring, encouraging. Of all the books that I have recently read, this stands out as being a very good read. It was disappointing to know that it was so short because it left me with the sensation of wanting to know more. The author helps one understand better the Palestinian Christian story, a message that is rarely heard, obscured by the many other voices.
