Prelate urges Tillerson not to move US embassy to Jerusalem [CC]


The chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace called upon Secretary of State Rex Tillerson not to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.




“Settlement expansion, confiscation of lands and the building of the Separation Wall on Palestinian lands violate international law and undermine a diplomatic solution,” Bishop Cantú added, as he recalled the suffering of Christians affected by the wall in the Cremisan Valley near Bethlehem.

It appears that one good thing about all the pro-settlement rhetoric from the Trump camp is that the Church is finding impetus and reason to guide the faithful in terms of what is just.
