“For us as Christians, this Land is unique since God chose to reveal His love for human beings here when He gave His Son to be born in Bethlehem; to die on the Cross and on the third day to rise again here in Jerusalem.  When Jesus revealed much if the Father’s will to us in what we know as the Sermon on the Mount, he particularly declared: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God” (Matthew 5: 9). 

All of us, together, must clearly affirm we are God’s children and so give specific support to work diligently for peace now.”
