Posted on Saturday, July 26, 2014

At 5gr we are sickened and appalled at the conflict between Israel and Hamas.  The destruction of innocent human life is unbelievable.  Can Israel not find a way to defend itself against rockets without causing such carnage - do the ends justify the means?  We pray that a lasting cease-fire and a just peace will happen very, very soon.  Read more of this post

An International outcry has been raised against the proposed construction of an Israeli wall which will cause 58 families to lose their land and the Cremisan workforce to need permits to come to work.  The Bishops' voices have been particularly strong.  An appeal is now going through the Israeli Court and today an explanation for the route of the wall was ordered by the Court.  http://www.thetablet.co.uk/news/399/0/israeli-court-orders-state-to-justify-wall-on-palestinian-christians-land-#.UvJI5s7_8i4.email  Read more of this post
