The Church is our heritage.
The Church has always been a part of the fabric of our lives.
Today, it is an important part of how we understand ourselves and our relationship with the world.
That is what we aim to do.
We are committed to preserving the sacredness of the Church and to safeguarding its sacredness, especially in the areas of health and social care.
We also value the diversity of our people and the contributions that they make to our societies.
The role of the Catholic Church in our lives is a reflection of our humanity.
And, in that regard, the Church has to be seen as the source of meaning in our daily lives.
We are not going to be content with simply being a Church of the Saints, a Church that is the source and center of our human values.
We must remain vigilant and persistent in our work.
We know that in times of crisis, our Church is the pillar of our society.
We have seen the impact that the Church can have in providing a place of hope for the needy.
We believe that our work with the Church is a way to bring God’s mercy to the world, as well as to help our society to overcome its problems.
We want to strengthen and encourage people to live lives of compassion.
We have to work with others, especially with women and the elderly, and to develop an environment that is more respectful and more welcoming of diversity.
We don’t want to abandon the work of the Vatican and other religious bodies in their role as partners with the state.
We want to work together with other institutions to find solutions that will help the people of Israel live with dignity and security.
We welcome the efforts of the United Nations, and we look forward to working with it to promote peace in the Middle East.
We will continue to build bridges with all people, including with religious and secular leaders who share our commitment to the values of the Gospel.
In our work, we are always mindful of the rights of others and the rights and dignity of all.
We value the right to life and dignity, and respect the right of people to have their views heard.
We recognize that human rights, and in particular freedom of religion and belief, are a basic pillar of democracy.
We believe that it is crucial to understand the nature of the challenges facing our society and that of the world and its people.
We do not take lightly the issue of the treatment of women in Israel.
We take seriously the call for an independent and fair inquiry into the situation in Israel, which is also the call of the European Union.
We understand that the situation of women is a complex one, but we also recognize that the treatment and treatment of the Palestinians is a sensitive one.
The situation is complex, but it is also universal, and Israel has to do more to address it.
We recognize the importance of working together with the United States and other countries and organizations in order to promote an environment where the human rights of the Palestinian people can be fully and openly addressed and defended.
We share the responsibility for this challenge.
We aim to improve the situation for the Palestinian citizens and the Israeli citizens of all faiths.
Israel is a Jewish state, but the country is also a pluralistic society.
We strive to build a plural society that respects the diversity, including those of the Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities.
We see this as a core part of Israel’s identity.
We hope to be a bridge between the Arab and the Jewish worlds, and between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples.
We respect all religions and cultures.
We respect the sovereignty of our own people.
And we recognize that there are religious minorities in Israel who feel that they do not belong in the country.
And that is why we are committed, in cooperation with the relevant governments, to strengthening the rule of law and to supporting the fight against extremism.
We welcome the opportunity to work closely with all countries and international organizations in our fight against the spread of extremist ideologies and to strengthen our security and stability.
The Israeli Government has taken a number of actions that are aimed at strengthening the peace process, strengthening the ties between Israel and its neighbors, and strengthening the Israeli-Palestinian cooperation.
We encourage all countries to take the steps necessary to build stronger relationships and strengthen the peace and stability of the region.
In the coming days and weeks, we will continue our efforts to work cooperatively with other countries to build confidence and promote peace.
We urge all countries in the region to join us in this effort.
