Vatican City hosts, today, a joint peace prayer with Pope Francis, Israeli President Shimon Peres and president Mahmoud Abbas, in what is held to be an unprecedented symbolic gesture offered with the intention of creating a bridge of peaceful dialogue across religious borders.
According to AFP via Ma'an, Abbas said that he hoped the event in the Vatican Gardens, which will include Christian, Jewish and Muslim prayers and the planting of an olive tree by all three leaders, would "help Israel decide."
