Christian leaders urge Israel to repeal ‘Jewish nation-state’ law

Senior Christian clerics in Jerusalem yesterday called for Israel to repeal its Jewish nation-state law, reported AFP.

“We must draw the attention of the authorities to a simple fact”, bishops and archbishops of the Roman Catholic, Syrian Catholic, Armenian Catholic and Greek Melkite churches said in a joint statement.

“Our faithful, the Christians, our fellow citizens, Muslim, Druze and Baha’i, all of us who are Arabs, are no less citizens of this country than our Jewish brothers and sisters.”

Christians, Muslims, Druze, Baha’i and Jews demand to be treated as equal citizens

said the letter which was also signed by the Maronite archbishop of Cyprus and the Greek Melkite archbishop of Petra, in Jordan.
