Episode 10 – Coptic Pilgrimage to the Disputed Holy Lands

The Coptic Orthodox Church of Egypt is one of the few churches in the world that is actively telling its congregants not to do any pilgrimage to the Holy Lands where Jerusalem is. At the heart of this decades-old ban is the on-going Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and is a reflection of the political landscape in Egypt around the Arab-Israeli wars. Join Sherif Rizk as he discusses the roots of the church’s stance on this matter, and whether this is the most effective way that the church can help bring an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
