Concern about Price Tag Attacks
On May 23, 2014 Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) Executive Director Warren Clark and Board Chair Russ Testa sent a letter of solidarity to Jerusalem Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal after a string of vandalisms against Christian institutions, including one against the Assembly of Bishops at the Notre Dame Center in East Jerusalem.
CMEP supports Patriarch Twal’s view that, “the unrestrained acts of vandalism poison the atmosphere; the atmosphere of co-existence and the atmosphere of collaboration.”
The welfare of Palestinian Christians is an ongoing concern to CMEP. We continue to admire the steadfastness of those who work to ensure a vibrant Christian presence in the Holy Land for future generations.
