UK voices 'reservations' over Mideast summit, refuses to sign statement
AFP reports: "Britain cited 'reservations' over Sunday's Middle East peace conference
and refused to sign a joint statement that called for a negotiated
two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
A Foreign Office spokesman said the British had 'particular
reservations' about the meeting in Paris taking place without Israeli or
Palestinian representatives, 'just days before the transition to a new
Britain had therefore attended the talks as an observer only, the
spokesman said. "
Comment: Please join me in praying for God's blessing upon the UK for not participating in the latest attempt by the international community to define Israel as the primary obstacle to peace. The idea that all Israel needs do is give away more land to the Palestinians to secure peace is delusional. If you have any doubts about that, just look what the Palestinians did when Israel gave them Gaza. It's an object lesson in the reality of land-for-peace.
