Bishop Christopher speaks out for peace in Palestine

Date: 05 December 2012
Speaking in the House of Lords this week, the Rt Revd Christopher Hill called on the government to do everything possible for peace in the Middle East and emphasised the need to signal that there must be a way forward through international law.

He said that Israel’s plans for building between east Jerusalem and the West Bank were a very serious threat to the resumption of negotiations and he welcomed the news that the Israeli Ambassador was to meet the UK's Minister with responsibility for Middle East affairs.
