U.S. to continue aid to Palestinians

The United States will continue giving humanitarian aid to Palestinians in spite of the formation of a Hamas government, according to a Yahoo news report.

As someone who was in the Palestinian West Bank last month, I am very relieved to hear this. The people there are simply desperate and they see the U.S. as one of the major reasons for their situation since we give so much (military) aid to Israel, who is subjugating the Palestinians.

These issues should also be important to Christians because pretty much every single member of the Church, the Israel of God (Gal. 6:16), in the Holy Land is an Arab/Palestinian.

Can you give us some more on Christians in Palestine - links to good sites? This would help us to think of Palestine in terms of our brothers and sisters in Christ, and so be able to pray intelligently, rather than see Palestine just in terms of Hamas, and as just another problem.
Many thanks
