Church Leaders' Statement Supports Israel

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Christians throughout the
world were urged last week
by a group of prominent
church leaders to rally be-
hind Israel and the Jewish
people who are endangered
by "ruthless acts of vio-
lence."
In a "Statement of Con-
cern," the Catholic,
Evangelical and Protestant
theologians deplored "the
actions of those who try to
isolate Israel from the fam-
ily of nations"; affirmed the
United Nations as an inter-
national forum but con-
Tined those who "manip-
ate its agencies for their
anti-Israel campaigns";
called for a solution "as just
to the Palestinian Arabs as
it is to the Israelis" but
pointed out that "provoca-
tive and destructive" pro-
nouncements and actions by
the Palestine Liberation
Organization "nullify con-
structive efforts for peace
and reconciliation in the
Middle East"; and declared
" our support for a united
Jerusalem as the capital of
Israel" and commended "the
exemplary fashion" in
which Israel has assured ac-
cess to the holy places and
protected religious rights.
Signers of the state-
ment included Rev.
James Lyons of Pine Hill
Congregational Church,
West Bloomfield and.R.ev.

the concluding dinner on
Oct. 26 of a seven-day visit
to Egypt and Israel, the 40
participants in the first
Jewish National Fund Na-
tion Builders Mission to Is-
rael, headed by Jerome

mitted themselves to a total
of $650,000 for vast land re-
clamation projects of the
JNF now well under way in
the northern and southern

Members of the mission
participated in an intensive
week-long series of semi-

While touring the
Galilee, they inspected
some of the new mitzpim
(presettlement observation
posts) which form a land
base for Jewish settlers in
strategic areas of the north-
"rn region.
