2014-08-28

Eastern Catholic Patriarchs have met in Lebanon calling for the criminalization of attacks against Christians.

The Patriarchs released a statement after attending a meeting in Bkirki, Lebanon to address the rise of terrorist attacks against Christians in the Middle East and the need to stop fundamentalist organizations

Among those present at the meeting were the ambassadors and representatives of the United States, Russia, France, Great Britain, China and the United Nations. The Apostolic Nuncio to Lebanon, Archbishop Gabriele Giordano Caccia also attended. 

Terrorist groups, like the Islamic State, have taken over Christian populated towns, such as Mosul and Nineveh, forcing thousands to either leave, convert or face death. 

The Patriarchs stated that it is painful to witness the silence of world powers amid the violence. 

They highlighted the need to liberate cities overrun by terrorist groups, such as ISIS. Also the need to secure persecuted towns and to prevent further displacements of Christians and religious minorities.
