Call for a "Just Peace"

Revd. Kathy Galloway, Leader of the Iona Community, has joined a number of Christian leaders, primarily from England and Wales, in calling for "a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians, to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the state of Israel".

The call comes in a letter published in The Independent newspaper on Thursday 8th May 2008

The declaration states that "millions of Israelis and Jews around the world will joyfully mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel", "millions of Palestinians will mourn 60 years since over 700,000 of them were uprooted from their homes and forbidden from returning."
