My guest today is a Jordanian Christian called Labib Madanat. He directs the work of the Bible Society in the Middle East, is well travelled and has a deep understanding of what goes on there. He lived in Jerusalem for many years which is where I met him recently, in a rather noisy hotel lobby as you will hear. He had just driven from Jordan having crossed into Israel at the Allanby Bridge. He started by describing his sorrow at the increased level of violence on the streets of Jerusalem by his own Arab/Palestinian people against Jewish people.
