Statement from Emek Shaveh calling for international church involvement

Emek Shaveh, an organization of archaeologists and community activists focusing on the role of archaeology in Israeli society and in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has told us:

‘If the Churches get involved and oppose the plan it could have a great impact. If the churches mention the holiness of the mountain, it might affect the plan. The most effective work, for you as outsiders, will be to influence the churches to object to the plan. I think that the Israeli authorities will be affected by pressure from churches and  foreign governments’
