Interfaith Prayers Offered for Success of Mideast Peace Conference

Jewish, Muslim and Christian clergy are praying for the success of this week's Middle East peace conference in Annapolis, Maryland.

Local religious leaders held a rally today on a hill overlooking the U.S. Naval Academy.

Rabbi Ari Goldstein of Temple Beth Shalom in Annapolis told the gathering of more than 100 people that they were all "children of Abraham."

The Reverend William Hathaway, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Annapolis, said Jews, Muslims and Christians all pray for the peace of Jerusalem. He prayed that the international leaders who meet in Annapolis this week will catch that vision and "move from words to actions."

Imam Mohamed Arafa of the Islamic Society of Annapolis asked God to remind the negotiators that "there is no peace without justice."
