- Pope calls for end to 'senseless' Middle East conflict
Pope John Paul has made a fresh call for an end to the
"senseless" conflict in the Middle East.
"Despite the serious and repeated attempts to the
serene and joint cohabitation off peoples, peace is
possible and right," the Pope said during a New Year's
"Indeed, peace is the most precious good to invoke
from God and to build with every effort," he said.
"There must be cooperation of all who believe in God,
knowing that authentic religiousness - far from
placing individuals and peoples in conflict with one
another - rather pushes them to together build a world
of peace," he added.
John Paul called for a peaceful end to the tensions
"in harmony" with the principles of international law.
