CMEP Bulletin: Is UN The Anti-Christ? No, But Settlements Are Detrimental to Peace
Since the peace agreement called the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993, the settler population in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, has more than doubled and over 50,000 new settlement units have been built, 11,000 of them between 2009 and 2015. This article, written by CMEP’s executive director discusses why settlements in the West Bank are detrimental to peace. What does it look like to respond to the damage and devastating effects of the settlement enterprise? Numerous organizations, including Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) are calling on President Obama and Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, to take a strong stand in the United Nations Security Council against settlements.
