Hidden away in a corner in the markets of east Jerusalem a few minutes away from the Damascus gate, there is a small Armenian church tucked away in a corner.
Yaseen (pictured right), is the caretaker of the church. He just happens to be Muslim.
His friend Isa (pictured left), runs a small cafe right next to the church.
When I commented on how lovely it is to see a Muslim man looking after a church, Yaseen said: “This is not suprising. In Palestine, Muslims and Christians get along. Isa is Christian, I am Muslim. We are all the same.”
At this point, Isa piped in and added:
“I am not Christian. I am Muslim Catholic.”
This is fraternity at its best.
