World Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace
Call of 7 January 2009
(video of the collective manifestation of Imams and Rabbis at the Wall for Peace, Champ de Mars, Paris, 16 december 2008).
Imams and Rabbis, wherever they are, commit themselves to organising prayer sessions to call for peace and universal brotherhood.
We call for an immediate stop to rocket launches on the south of Israel and to bombings and combat in Gaza so as to protect thousands of innocent lives, allow victims to have access to humanitarian aid and to establish conditions needed for the resumption of the peace process.
We call upon all the Palestinian leaders and the Government of Israel to return to the path of dialogue immediately.
We call upon everybody inclined to act, to participate in one way or another in the organisation of a humanitarian convoy that will leave Amman to go to Gaza via Sderot on 18 January 2009.
Several representatives of the Congress, Imams and Rabbis together with Christian leaders, will join the convoy to express our unconditional support for the Israeli and Palestinian civilian populations.
