IFG Special meeting Johannes Gerloff 18 02 17

Posted by admin on February 19, 2017

IFG and CFI hosted a talk by Johannes Gerler this Saturday at Greenlane Christian Fellowship. Trish and Graeme introduced the meeting  then Johannes spoke in depth on his topic

‘Jewish Settlements : Illegal & main obstacle to peace in the Middle East????’ Johannes, accompanied by his wife Krista, shared the depth of his experience living in Israel as a reporter. Johannes shared the frustrations of not being permitted to report much of what they saw and gave us a deeper and broader understanding of the Arab/Palestinian mindset with respect to reporting and negotiation. His point that we cannot leave the Palestinians out of our prayers and consideration was well received. His book ‘The Palestinians: Myths and Martyrs’ is well worth reading just for the range of information we never hear from other sources – the chapter on Yasser Arafat will be an eye opener for many. Johannes thoughtful approach, and, as he quipped, his very German tendency to always look for a balance, was balanced in turn by his realistic perception and assessments of the many news situations he has covered.

A fruitful question time followed, with that in turn followed by our usual fellowship over tea and coffee.IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17 (2) IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17 (4) IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17 (5) IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17_0015 IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17_0018 IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17_0021 IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17_0027 IFG Johannes and Krista Gerloff 18 02 17_0037
