TORONTO, Dec. 24 /CNW/ - In holiday greetings to our Christian friends, Moshe Ronen, chair of the Canada-Israel Committee, said:
"At this holy time on the Christian calendar, we extend our good wishes to all who celebrate the birth of Jesus. We celebrate the gift of Christians, both within Israel and pilgrims from abroad, being able to visit the sites most sacred to them in the Holy Land. In that spirit, we call for a renewed sense of tolerance and mutual respect by all for all."
