13 Patriarchs and Heads of the main churches in Jerusalem has on Wednesday delivered to U.S. President Donald Trump a last-minute plea, urging him not to change US policy toward Jerusalem for fear this could cause “irreparable harm”.
“We have been following, with concern, the reports about the possibility of changing how the United States understands and deals with the status of Jerusalem,” a letter from them Wednesday said.
“We are certain that such steps will yield increased hatred, conflict, violence and suffering in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, moving us farther from the goal of unity and deeper toward destructive division.
“We ask from you, Mr President, to help us all walk towards more love and a definitive peace, which cannot be reached without Jerusalem being for all,” the letter further stated.
