Ihud Bnei HaBrit (Hebrew: איחוד בני הברית‎; Arabic: اتحاد أبناء العهد‎)[2] is an Israeli political party participating in the 2019 Israeli legislative election.[1] It is mostly a Christian party with also Jewish and Muslim support.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Bnei Brit HaHadasha ("Sons of the New Testament"), soon changed to Bnei Brit ("Allies"), was established in 2013 with the aim of representing the interests of Arabic-speaking Christians in Israel.[4][5] The party encourages full integration of Arabophone Christians into Israeli society, the two-state solution, and enlistment of Arabophone Christians into the Israel Defense Forces. It was founded by Bishara Shilyan, a sea captain from Nazareth,[6][7] and one of the founders of the Christian Enlistment Forum and a central promoter of recruitement of Christians into the Israeli Defense Forces.[8][9] One of the reasons for founding the party is the belief that the existing Arab parties predominantly serve Muslim interests.[10] Israel's Arabophone Christians are predominantly Melkite Greek and Roman Catholic and represent a minority within the broader Arab population of the country.[11][12]

The party's founder, Bishara Shilyan, said he wants to build a 30.5-metre (100 ft) tall statue of Jesus (modelled on Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer statue) on top of a mountain in Nazareth.[13] He said the purpose of the statue would be to prevent Nazareth's Christian heritage from being eroded.[14][15] The town's Christian population has been steadily decreasing relative to its Muslim population,[16][17] with Christian residents leaving to the predominately Jewish cities of Nazareth Illit, Shfar'am, and Haifa.[18]

The list was officially submitted in the 2019 Israeli legislative election as Ihud Bnei HaBrit ("United Allies").[19][20] The party aims to promote equality between majority and minorities in Israel, in the spirit of the Israeli Declaration of Independence.[21][22]

Israel's Christian Arabs have been nervously watching the persecution of the Christian populations in neighboring Egypt and Syria in the wake of the 'Arab Spring' protests. Those observations have prompted a group of Christian Arabs to form a new political party in Israel, one which encourages serving side-by-side with Jewish Israelis in the Israel Defense Forces. The new party is called Bnai Brit HaHadasha which can be translated as the Sons of the New Covenant. The name can also be translated as Sons of the New Testament or Sons of the New Alliance. [etc.]

The party’s Hebrew name — B’nei Brit Hahadasha — means “Sons of the New Testament,” although the word “allies” is hidden in the title as well. The effort is part of a growing assertiveness on the part of Christian Arabs in the wake of the Arab Spring, as they increasingly sound calls for an identity distinct from Israel’s broader Arab society, which is around 90% Muslim.
