In the World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel, the President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference have issued this statement on Israel and the West Bank:

"We express sorrow over the significant increase in recent months in the demolitions of houses and other structures in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. House demolitions have left 500 people homeless this year. In the Cremisan Valley ancient olive trees are being torn up to make way for the separation wall.

"The World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel this week offers us an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to the search for a just peace in the region. The week calls on us to build bridges not walls and we join the prayer that equal rights and respect will be afforded to every person in the land of Israel and Palestine."

The Revd Steve Wild
President of the Conference

Dr Jill Barber
Vice President of the Conference
