UK should acknowledge role in Mideast instability, Anglican bishop says

Catholic World News - October 15, 2010

An Anglican represenative at the Synod of Bishops for the Middle East said that the United Kingdom should recognize its historical role in establishing the political structures that have caused persistent tensions in the region, through the administration of the British Mandate in Palestine and its subsequent partitions. Bishop Michael Langrish of the Church of England said that his country should “more fully understand and face up to the consequences of foreign-policy decisions of the past 100 years.”

The Anglican bishop confirmed the importance of maintaining Christian institutions in the Holy Land, saying that “we have a long and honurable tradition of presence in this land and our presence here is important for the Church worldwide.” Continued emigration of Christians could be “disastrous for the world Church,” he warned.
