(NEWS) Vatican Body Asks UN To 'End Israeli Occupation'

"In final statement of two-week conference, bishops' synod says Biblical concept of 'promised land' cannot be used to justify settlements.

Israel cannot use the Biblical concept of a promised land or a chosen people to justify new "settlements" in Jerusalem or territorial claims, a Vatican synod on the Middle East said on Saturday.

In its concluding message after two weeks of meetings, the synod of bishops from the Middle East also said it hoped a two-state solution for peace between Israel and the Palestinians could be lifted from dream to reality and called for peaceful conditions that would stop a Christian exodus from the region."
