Reformed Church members have been reminded of the importance of voting in the
European and County Council elections on 4 June despite recent bad publicity
about MPs’ expenses. Members have been urged to cast their vote, particularly
to counter the threat of the British National Party. A full resolution passed
at a meeting of the Church’s Mission Council on 17 May said:
Musa & Rana Khaldi came into the Bridge Centre where I work in Hyson Green and told me the story of a little Palestinian girl from the West Bank, called Marah who is only 2½ years sold but is suffering from Leukaemia. Musa & Rana know her family very well. Her family is extremely poor and have nothing.
Some Jewish doctors were helping Marah and local Jewish people were taking her to the hospital past the wall since Palestinians aren't allowed to cross.
