The Council of Religious Institutions in the Holy Land met with Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni today to discuss the potential positive role religious leaders can play in helping to build peace, mutual understanding and reconciliation in the Holy Land. The Council also released a statement declaring the sacredness of human life as a basic premise of all three religions and therefore calling for a ceasefire and end to violence. Last week, the Council released a statement denouncing the recent burnings of Christian Bibles in Or Yehudah.
