  • En el camino Vol. 2, No. 4 20 de noviembre del 2014 Los menonitas e Israel-Palestina – Mennonite Church USA
    realmente estaba sucediendo en Israel Palestina Me he dado cuenta de que nuestros medios de noticias estadounidenses no siempre nos brindan los informes más acertados sobre estos temas Me intrigaba mucho nuestro objetivo de conocer a gente de allí mismo para comprender mejor el conflicto palestino israelí y sus realidades así como conocer a las organizaciones palestinas e israelíes que están trabajando por la paz y la justicia incluidas aquellas con las cuales las agencias menonitas están colaborando Otra meta expectativa era regresar a nuestros hogares con el compromiso de involucrarnos en la educación y la defensoría sobre la justicia en Palestina e Israel con la esperanza avanzar hacia un enfoque pro justicia pro paz y pro Jesús en lugar de uno que sea simplemente pro israelí o pro palestino Antes de esta invitación nunca consideré visitar la región e ignoraba mayormente el grado de injusticias que los palestinos sufren a diario En seguida mi mente cuerpo y alma identificaron los patrones similares de opresión abuso etiquetamiento y discriminación que los afroamericanos experimentaron en Estados Unidos durante las épocas de la Reconstrucción y de Jim Crow Recordé los tiempos de la esclavitud cuando separaban a las familias y había acciones deliberadas por parte de los dueños de esclavos y de la cultura dominante para destruir el idioma y la cultura de otros pueblos Me identifico con el clamor de la gente que pide que se haga justicia Para qué sirven las leyes internacionales si no pueden hacerle rendir cuentas al gobierno Lo que vi y reconocí fue que a pesar del plan intencional y estratégico de obligar a la gente a abandonar una tierra y de infligirles una humillación diaria mediante puestos de control creando dificultades con un propósito particular al cerrar calles importantes y a través de otras acciones abundaba un intrépido espíritu de resistencia y esperanza de que la gente podrá superar estos padecimientos Los cristianos palestinos dependen de personas como usted y yo que apoyen sus esfuerzos por la paz Si aún no ha leído el documento Kairós Palestina hágalo Lo aliento también a apoyar al Comité Central Menonita y a sus organizaciones coparticipantes que hacen un buen trabajo en ayudar a restaurar la humanidad en aquella región Joy Sutter Miembro de la junta ejecutiva East Norristown Pensilvania Viaje de febrero marzo del 2014 Joy compartió las siguientes reflexiones con los demás miembros de la junta ejecutiva de la Iglesia Menonita de EE UU en su reunión de junio del 2014 Vengan y vean fueron las palabras proféticas de un asombroso viaje del cual participé junto a otros líderes de la Iglesia Menonita de EE UU en Israel Palestina esta primavera Esta simple invitación a ir y ver cambió mi visión de la gente las políticas y las imágenes que me había formado en la mente antes de mi visita Siempre supe que existía un conflicto en Medio Oriente pero hasta que pude verlo en persona no lo comprendí verdaderamente y no penetró mi alma Necesité ir
