"The church has to raise its prophetic voice," said LWF President Munib Younan. "At the same time the church has to be diaconal and look for the poor and und vulnerable. Church has to talk and act about gender justice, ecological justice and environmental justice. Peace in the Holy Land is still possible," said Younan. He called for a shared Jerusalem and a two-nation solution for Israel and Palestine.
