ASIA/HOLY LAND – Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem: an “extremist ideology” makes the soul of the Holy City bleed – Agenzia Fides

The forced eviction of Palestinian families in Jerusalem from their homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah by the security forces represents an “unacceptable violation” of one of the fundamental human rights, that of being able to live in peace in one’s own home. And the violence used to prevent Palestinian Muslims from reaching the al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem “undermines their security and their right to have access to the Holy Places and to pray freely”. The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem chooses vibrant and alarmed tones to express concern and discouragement in the face of the escalation of clashes and tensions that from the Holy City are already spreading throughout the Holy Land, lengthening the list of human sacrifices that accompany each new phase of the endless Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  Source: ASIA/HOLY LAND – Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem: an “extremist ideology” makes the soul of the Holy City bleed – Agenzia Fides
