Palestinian MPs from the Change and Reform bloc met on Sunday with the head of the Catholic Church in the West Bank, Father Joseph Sa'adeh, to convey greetings.

The visiting parliamentarians included: Shaykh Hamid Bitawi, Yasir Mansour, Husni Al Burini, Muna Mansour, Shaykh Ahmad Al Hajj Ali and Daud Abu Sayr.

Father Sa'adeh welcomed the delegation and expressed his appreciation for the visit. During their meeting the parties discussed the latest developments in Palestine, and efforts to resolve internal Palestinian differences.


On another level, the MPs denounced what they called 'the criminal attack on the Qidissen Church in Alexandria, Egypt, saying that no religion sanctions the killing of innocents, let alone in a place of worship. They expressed concern with the apparent attempts to destabilize Egypt by sowing the seeds of religious discord.
