Al Jazeera World - The Archbishop & The PLO

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

Known to some as the "Father of the Palestinians" or "Archbishop of the Arabs", Monsignor Hilarion Capucci was an enigmatic freedom-fighting Christian Archbishop in Jerusalem who was jailed for smuggling arms for the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in the 1970s, but continued battling for the Palestinians until his death. A controversial figure, he will nonetheless be remembered as the Christian priest who put his life in danger for a political cause he believed in, and fought for, passionately, all his life.
