Bishop of Swansea and Brecon condemns plans for military college on the Mount of Olives

The Right Rev’d John Davies – Bishop of Swansea & Brecon – said

“Quite apart from the political and military conflict in Israel/Palestine – which any politician of a decent heart and sound conscience will feel duty-bound to resolve for the good of all concerned – a proposal to construct a military installation of any description on the Mount of Olives is both provocative and deeply upsetting to three major faith groups and to countless others who yearn for peace and justice.

Anyone with an understanding of what this place represents will surely recognise that the proposal is deeply flawed. I hope that it will be quickly reconsidered”
