The Amman Call for International Peace

Issued at the WCC International Peace Conference
“Churches together for Peace and Justice in the Middle East”

Amman, Jordan, 18-20 June 2007

In the very place where Jesus Christ walked upon the earth, walls now separate families and the children of God – Christian, Muslim and Jew — are imprisoned in a deepening cycle of violence, humiliation and despair. The Palestinian Christians from Gaza to Jerusalem and to Nazareth, have called out to their brothers and sisters in Christ with this urgent plea: “Enough is enough. No more words without deeds. It is time for action.”
