Catholic bishops from Europe, America lament stalled Israel-Palestine peace process

Catholic World News - January 19, 2010

At the conclusion of an annual visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories, a group of Catholic bishops from Europe and America has issued a statement warning that "the two-state solution does not seem any closer," and the two parties show no real sign of dedication to reviving the peace process. The visiting bishops-- representing the Holy Land Coordination, which has organized such trips each year since 1998-- saw Israelis and Palestinians growing steadily further apart. Their conflict could be settled, the bishops insist, if both sides were willing.
