CMEP Action Alert: Tell the President, “50 Years of Occupation is Too Long.”
Join 20 national faith leaders in calling for an end to 50 years of occupation and the creation of a just peace for ALL Israelis and Palestinians!
On June 7, Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) sent the President an ecumenical letter signed by 20 faith leaders, including the Rev. Dr. Sharon Watkins and the Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer, the respective General Ministers and Presidents of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and United Church of Christ. This letter called for an end to 50 years of occupation of Palestinian territory and the creation of a just “peace between Israelis and Palestinians ‘that allows both peoples to live, worship, and thrive and prosper.’”
Join these church leaders in calling on the President to support peace building. Ask the President to support continued U.S. humanitarian aid to Gaza and full access to the Holy Sites in Jerusalem for the three religious traditions – Jews, Muslims, and Christians— who call them holy.
