Religious leaders urge renewed efforts for Mideast peace

Catholic World News - March 02, 2012

Nearly 30 Jewish, Muslim, Christian leaders in the US--including Bishop Richard Pates, chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace, and Cardinal Theodore McCarrick--called for redoubled efforts towards Arab-Israeli-Palestinian peace.

The National Interreligious Leadership Initiative’s statement called for an end to violence against civilians and a moratorium on Israeli settlement expansion.

“We urge candidates not to use any rhetoric that could make prospects for peace more problematic,” they added. “As Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious leaders, we strongly caution candidates to do no harm to chances for a two-state Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.”
