Today, Palestinians are still walking the Way of the Cross, and anxiously awaiting the Day of Resurrection - the day the stone that blocks the tomb of occupation is rolled away.
This Way of the Cross is not confined to Easter week,
but has been going for 70 years. The stations of suffering that are visited include: checkpoints, permits, refugee camps, blockade, home demolitions, detention without trial, and bombing."
"The message of Easter and the Resurrection is that those liberated by God cannot be made slaves by anyone," writes Rifat. "Freedom for one group cannot come through the oppression of another."
