In an open letter of solidarity addressed to the Jerusalem Inter-Church Centre and Kairos in Palestine, the Council of Social Justice and Peace (CSJP), a social arm of the influential Catholic Church in Goa, Father Maverick Fernandes expressed concern over the dehumanization of Israeli youngsters as a result of the mandatory three-year army service.
