No peace for one, no peace for all

Religions for Peace International provides this recap of a meeting attended by staff from the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations:

On June 27, 2011 Religions for Peace International hosted an interreligious discussion at the Church Center for the United Nations in New York on “Challenges and Opportunities of Tradition and Change in the Middle East and the Holy Land” with His Beatitude Archbishop Fouad Twal, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem and Co-President of Religions for Peace. The Patriarch stated “There is no peace for one, if there is no peace for all.” He shared a view dear to Religions for Peace—that the Holy Land is made up of two peoples and three faiths. Respect for both peoples political rights as well as the religious rights of all believers is a prerequisite for genuine peace in the Holy Land.
