Palm Sunday in Jerusalem

Tuesday 27 Apr 2021


THIS year Coptic Easter coincides with Ramadan, and Muslims and Christians are celebrating together across the Arab world.

With the coronavirus pandemic raging on, there is a strong sense of solidarity underlying the prevailing spirit of tolerance.

Palestinians may be clashing with Israeli settlers in Jerusalem, but in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a nun peacefully marks Palm Sunday while Muslims congregate at Damascus Gate.
