Pope Francis brings Israel and Palestine together

The president of Israel, Shimon Peres, and Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas met in the Vatican home of Pope Francis for a 90 minute prayer of peace. Relations between Israel and Palestine had deteriorated recently as the political party Fatah joined to form a coalition government with Hamas, a known terrorist organization. The meeting for a prayer of peace is a positive first step in restoring the Middle East peace process. http://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/europe/pope-brings-israeli-palestinian-presidents-together-in-vatican-1.1825275
