Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb Encourages Viewers to Watch "60 Minutes" This Sunday (22 April)

CBS News "60 Minutes" will be broadcasting a story about the shrinking population of the Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land this Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time. The Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb and other Palestinian Christian leaders were interviewed as part of production for this news story.

Bob Simon reports on the slow exodus from the Holy Land of Palestinian Christians, who say life in the middle of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has become too difficult. Harry Radliffe is the producer.

For those of you who do not have access to CBS News in your area, you can watch the story on the CBS News website. The story will be posted on Sunday evening after it airs on TV. There will also be an added feature to the online program called "60 Minutes Overtime" where you will be able to view a story on Taybeh. 

The Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb is a partner of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Learn about Presbyterian partnerships and ministry in Israel and Palestine.
