Christians for Fair Witness on the Middle East Congratulates the Palestinian People Upon Official Vatican Recognition of the State of Palestine
Christians for Fair Witness on the Middle East (“Fair Witness”) congratulates the Palestinian people upon news that the Vatican has officially recognized the state of Palestine in a new treaty.
