Wishing peace between Israel and Palestine

The Buddhist Council of Western Australia shares the view of the Federation of Australian Buddhist Council that we are saddened and shocked by the events of recent days in Israel and Gaza. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Israeli and Palestinian people; for those who are mourning loved ones, for those who have been injured, for those who have been abducted and for those who are fearing for their safety. We hope all people and communities find safety and that the violence ends. We also hope for a genuine peace process that will enable reconciliation between opposing forces and that the conflict can be resolved non-violently.
