US church leaders ask Rice to address crisis in Gaza

A group of US church leaders has asked that US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice directly address the crisis over the Gaza Strip in her planned visit to the Middle East this week, reports Ecumenical News International. The leaders of US Anglican, Orthodox, Protestant, Roman and Unitarian Universalist churches and Roman Catholic religious humanitarian groups on 29 February sent a letter to Rice. They urged her to "to take urgent action to address the still unresolved Gaza crisis". This crisis, the leaders, said "is hindering progress on the peace process and also create conditions that pose a particular threat to the small Christian community in Gaza".
