Israeli-Palestinian problem at base troubles in Middle East, says Jerusalem Patriarch
May 24, 2013
"There is no doubt that the Palestinian problem is the focus of all conflict in the Middle East for the last one hundred years. This is the truth that we cannot circumvent,” said Latin-rite Patriarch Fouad Twal of Jerusalem.
Speaking at a conference in Beirut on Christians in the Middle East, sponsored by the World Council of Churches, the Patriarch said that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict “will continue to feed aggression, oppression, deceit, double standards and occupation” until a just and lasting solution is achieved.
