Holy See - Israel meet on protection of holy sites and fiscal status
by Arieh Cohen
As has become tradition, the meeting took place in a "cordial" atmosphere and saw "progress." But the joint statement did not mention the dates of future meetings, which had been agreed.

Tel Aviv (AsiaNews) - The delegations of the Holy See and the State of Israel held a working meeting in Israel yesterday. They are charged with drawing up a third treaty between both parties, this time with the aim of confirming the historic fiscal status of the Church and safeguarding measures for the Holy Sites. At the end of the day’s discussions, the bilateral commission, which is includes both delegations, issued this joint communiqué:

“The Bilateral Permanent Working Commission between the Holy See and the State o Israel met today 21 September 2010 to carry on its scheduled work pursuant to Article 10 Paragraph 2 of the Fundamental Agreement (1993). The talks were held in a cordial atmosphere and produced progress towards the desired agreement”.

There is no indication of the date of the next meeting at this “working” level and there is no mention of the next plenary meeting, which was also decided on a bilateral basis last June at the Vatican for Dec. 6 next at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel.

Paris Massacre highlights the failure of Muslim integration in Europe
by Catherine FieldThe attack in the heart of France highlights the crisis of Europe’s model of coexistence. Social unrest, poverty and marginalisation feed youth extremism and radicalisation.

For Nîmes imam, Islam should not be held hostage by extremists
by Hochine DrouicheFrench imams condemn the Paris terrorist attacks and disassociate themselves from violence committed in "the name of our religion." At the same time, they ask Muslim communities to dare leading a life of dialogue and friendship with Europeans, without fear or arrogance. For centuries, Muslims have ruled out reason from their religious life. The vice president of French imams bears witness.
AsiaNews marks 12 years: Persecution and hope
by Bernardo CervelleraDespite a worldwide increase of ignorance, indifference and superficiality, many signs of love and hope resist even in the most gloomy situations: the Iraqi mother who gives birth to her child in a refugee camp and smiles even though she has nothing; the Indonesian Muslim mother who blesses her son who became a Christian and a priest; the Chinese Christian families that welcome children thrown away because of the one-child law.
