The Pope expressed his deep sorrow over the “deaths and injuries” caused by the Israeli occupation army on the border of the Gaza Strip, stressing his solidarity with them.

The Pope said:

“I am very concerned about the escalating violence in the Middle East and in the Holy Land, which causes further deviation from the path of peace, dialogue, and negotiation.”

He added:

“I feel very sad for the deaths and injuries and stand by those who suffer and I’m praying for them. I repeat once again that violence will never lead to peace.”

The Pope called on all concerned parties and the international community to renew their commitments in order to achieve dialogue, peace, and justice in the Middle East.

  1. Just when is all this killing and dying going to stop and why hasn’t it done so long before now?

    The Israeli-Palestinian quarrel has been the subject of numerous attempts by the Great and the Good to resolve it, to have it vanish into the maelstrom of the past from whence it might be recalled to memory but only with a shudder of amazement that such a conflict had existed at all and had done so for so many generations.

    Then it’s fair to say that closing it down now will take an immense amount of power and leverage, commodities to be found only in one place and that is within the conflict itself.

    ‘ Finding the Laxian Key’ — ” if we would will the end, then we must also will the means.”
