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”.

"In the long run, there can be no winners in the current tragedy, only more suffering. Most of the victims are civilians, who by international humanitarian law, should be protected.”

Archbishop Tomasi did not place blame on either side for the escalation in the latest conflict. However, he described as "intolerable” the high number of Palestinian civilian deaths, as well as the rockets fired indiscriminately at Israelis. Tomasi also invoked the Pope's visit to the Holy Land in May, and the prayer for peace in June in calling both sides to dialogue.

"With violence, men and women will continue to live as enemies and adversaries, but with peace they can live as brothers and sisters.”

The Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council convened a special session to discuss the Gaza offensive. But the Council is under constant criticism itself. It has passed more resolutions against Israel, than all other countries combined, while failing to address other sensitive issues. Critics also denounce the participation in the Council of non-democratic countries accused of committing human rights abuses themselves.
