VIOLENCE IN THE HOLY LAND

Urgent appeal from the Patriarchs
and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem
To President George Bush

Tuesday, April 02, 2002

Mr. President

We appeal to you to stop immediately the inhuman tragedy that is taking place in this Holy Land in our Palestinian towns and villages. Only this morning the Israeli tanks have reached the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, the City of our Lord Jesus Christ.

There is wanton indiscriminate killings. Very many people are deprived of water, electricity , food supplies and basic medical needs. Many of our religious institutions have been invaded and damaged. We call upon your Christian Conscience - because we know you are the only one who can stop this tragedy immediately.

We in return will play our part in mediating for the peace and secutiry of all the people of this land, both Israeli and Palestinian.

Signed
The Patriarchs, Archbishops and Headds of all the Christian Churches in Jerusalem.
