An Open Letter to The Most Reverend David Malloy, Bishop of Rockford, Illinois, Chair United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on International Justice and Peace

A thoughtful analysis of current British Government policy on the Israel/Palestine conflict. Andrew asks if our Foreign Secretary’s recent visit signals sustained Government commitment to a just end to the 1967 Occupation, or was a walk-on part of little consequence. Either way, Britain has responsibilities from the time when she made contradictory promises and ruled in Mandate Palestine. Today Britain can exert influence, if she chooses to do so.
