The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has finally met the Palestinian Christian leader Rev Dr Munther Isaac, whom he had refused to meet earlier because he had shared a platform with Jeremy Corbyn.

The archbishop apologised and after their meeting yesterday, issued a strong message of condemnation of Israel’s action in Gaza:

“In listening to him, I continue to be deeply horrified by Israel’s bombardment and siege of Gaza.

"I condemn the killing of Palestinian civilians, the destruction of homes and neighbourhoods, and pushing people to the brink of starvation – there is no moral justification for this.

"I renew my call for an immediate ceasefire, for aid to reach all those in desperate need, and for the release of all hostages”.

He re-affirmed his support for Palestinian Christians and the people of Gaza and prayed for a path towards a just and lasting peace for all.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
