Israel’s President Shimon Peres sent a message of peace to Muslims around the world this weekend to mark the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, in which Muslims fast each day from sunrise until sunset.

“Dear friends, Ramadan Kareem is not only a holiday for you but a celebration or all of us, after all we are coming from the same family, the family of Abraham and after all you, us, the Christians, all of us pray to the Lord to end the bloodshed, to let the children be safe in their homes, to make it unnecessary for the mothers to cry,” he said.

“We can do it, it depends upon us. We have to come together, we have to do whatever we can as human beings, as believers to do it immediately,” he continued.

“The Ramadan is an occasion to fast, to think, to wish, to hope and all of us should do those things, to pray to the Lord and to call upon ourselves to make peace for all,” he added.
