We Are Church International

 

What has been going on in Iraq recently against our Christian sisters and brothers and the Yazidi people is terrible and is a cause of pain and indignation for all the Christian community and for any "person of good will".

 

The facts are described in the Declaration of Pontifical Council of Interreligious Dialogue (12th August).

 

Once again, as all too often in history, violence and massacres are perpetuated in the name of God.

 

We think that every religious leader must speak out and invite responsible political leaders to act in order to solve the situation.

 

All around the world, the Christians must, above all, pray and put in place concrete forms of solidarity. Moreover every existing good relationship and dialogue between Christians and Muslims must continue unabated.

 

We call on our Muslim friends, our brothers and sisters, to honour their responsibilities and recognise the situation; at the same time we Christians must recognise that the situation in Iraq and in the Middle East has the roots in actions and interventions of different types over many years by the "Christian"  West.

 

We strongly pray to God that people of all religions, but especially those of the Book, strive and work urgently for peace, dialogue, human rights and an ethical world.
