Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Pope: Holy See supports right to a Palestinian state

President of the Palestinian National Authority

Here in the Holy Land, there are people that continue to build walls instead of building bridges. It’s time for the suffering to stop. It’s time for love and peace to prevail.

The Pope said the Holy See supports the right of the Palestinian people to have their own state, but he acknowledged a solution would not come easy if there is no cooperation with Israel.

Benedict XVI
Mr President, the Holy See supports the right of your people to a sovereign Palestinian homeland in the land of your forefathers, secure and at peace with its neighbors, within internationally recognized borders.

Benedict said he hoped both Palestine and Israel would become more secure places so that Palestinians can have more freedom in moving around the region. While he acknowledged the suffering of the Palestinian people, he called on them not to resort to violence.

Benedict XVI
I make this appeal to the many young people throughout the Palestinian Territories today: do not allow the loss of life and the destruction that you have witnessed to arouse bitterness or resentment in your hearts. Have the courage to resist any temptation you may feel to resort to acts of violence or terrorism.

This afternoon, the Pope will visit a refugee camp built next to the wall that separates Israel from areas controlled by the Palestinian authority.
