"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." It's time for the Australian Government to shift gear on Palestine and Israel. It's time for Australia to become much more active in the cause of peace in the Holy Land.

The people of Israel and Palestine desperately need and want peace. The world desperately needs peace in the Holy Land. Palestinians have suffered 60 years of dispossession, 41 years of military occupation, land confiscation and illegal settlements, and thousands of violent deaths.

Readers will be interested to know that this Statement was endorsed by nearly all the Heads of Churches in Australia, including Dick Menteith on our behalf, as well as Tim Costello for World Vision Australia. In total, over 50 Christian leaders in Australia endorsed the Statement. The Statement was accompanied by a Kit of factual and reflective information, including a prayer for peace from the Jerusalem Churches. Copies of the Statement and the Kit may be obtained for personal or congregational use from me, as a basis for ongoing prayer and reflection.
