The 8 May is the 60th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel - something that has occasioned both great hope and great despair.
A Christian leaders' statement calling for a full memory, and for justice and compassion for both Palestinians and Israelis, will be launched to coincide with this. Ekklesia has been involved heavily in the pre-publicity. http://justpeace60.blogspot.com/
The declaration, rooted in biblical values, has already brought together an extraordinary coalition - including figures including Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and a range of evangelical leaders.
The Ekklesia press statement about it is here: http://ekklesia.co.uk/node/7096
