Sunday, March 14, 1948 THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VIBITOK ews ection--- 'age 7A Jerusalem Christian Foments Strife in Unjust, Representatives Of Four Catholic Among | ! Signers Asking N. Charter Self-Determination BY BRO. ANTHONY BRUYA, O.F.M. Jerusalem, Mar. 8---(Radio, NC)--A strongly worded declaration denouncing partition of Palestine has been issued by leaders of 11 Christian communities here, including four Catholic prelates. Addressed to all world religious and political bodies, the statement expressed "deep sorrow and strong indignation at the lamentable situation in whichO the Holy Land, cradle of peace, Catholic Music has been placed as a direct result of the erroneous policy which has been imposed on the country and which has culminated in the par- tition plan." The four Catholic signers of th( statement are the Very Rev. Albert Gori, O.F.M., custos of the Holy Land; Msgr. Ephrem Haddad, vicar in Jerusalem for His Eminence Ignatius Cardinal Tappouni, Syr- ian-rite Patriarch of Antioch; Mon- signor Jacques, vicar in Jerusalem for His Eminence Gregory Peter XV Cardinal Agagianian, Patri- arch of the Armenians in Silicia and an official of the Latin-rite Patriarchate of Jerusalem. The declaration was regarded here as a clarification of Christian concern for the Holy Places and as a renewed expression of the Chris- tian community's desire for peace in Jerusalem and the Holy Land. It was also an answer to the editorial in the Palestine Post, Zionist daily, which last week stated: "The only sound heard in Jerusalem these days is that of gunmen. Strangely silent are the Churches in all their sects and de- nominations." "It is our firm conviction," the Christian leaders declare, "that peace will not be restored, nor would any endeavors made for the promotion of the peace of Jerusa- lem be crowned with success, un- less those bodies who undertake determination of the future of Westine remove the causes which have made a battle of the Holy Land, re-establish the principles of justice, and maintain the right of self-determination as envisa~_,ed in the charter of the United Na- tions. "The Christian Union (the church communities signing the state- cent) wishes to declare in un- equivocal terms that they de- nounce the partition plan, being of strong convictions that this plan involves a violation of the sacred- ness of the Holy Land, which by its nature and history is indivisible, and represents an encroachment on the natural rights of the Arabs the people of the country." Other developments here i~eludE the publication of an appeal by the strict Orthodox Jews that all Jerusalem be declared an open city. Both the former Polish consul in Jerusalem, Witold Hulanicki, and the Polish journalist, Stefan Ar- nold, who were "executed" by Jew- ish extremist for allegedly collab- orating with the Arabs, were Cath- olics.
