Statement on the Conflict in Israel and Palestine
The Parliament of the World’s Religions is deeply saddened by the violence in Jerusalem and the ensuing escalation of conflict in the region. We especially deplore acts of violence done within sacred spaces or to people on the way to and from sacred spaces; whether Al-Aqsa Mosque, a synagogue in Lod, or the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
We mourn the lives lost and the continued suffering of those involved in the ongoing conflict. The Parliament upholds the human dignity of members of all faith communities in Jerusalem, the Holy Land, and around the world.
