If you are a Palestinian Christian and you would like to become a signatory of the 'Moment of Truth' document or as a non-a Palestinian or Christian, you support this document, please find link here here.

Kairos Palestine is a group of Palestine Christians who authored “A Moment of Truth” – Christian Palestinian’s word to the world about the occupation of Palestine, an expression “of faith, hope and love from the heart of Palestinian suffering”, and a call for solidarity in ending over six decades of oppression. The document was published in December 2009.
