“If there was no wall, I would tell children around the world that the wall fell down. Friends who had not seen each other for years could now meet. I and all the children of Palestine will be very proud of all the people who made the wall fall down.” Isabella (10) in Jerusalem.
World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel
18-24 September 2106
The latest CWS News reminds us that is about this World Week for Peace:
From 18-24 September join the World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel with the theme “God has broken down dividing walls”.
Resources including liturgy are available to encourage participation in this time for prayer and action.

“The unresolved conflict in Israel and Palestine is primarily about justice, and until the requirement of justice is met, peace cannot be established.” 5.2 million refugees are Palestinian.
