An international peace force is needed to hold back the onslaught of so-called Islamic State militants who continue to make gains in Syria and Iraq – that, according to Chaldean Bishop of Aleppo, Syria, Antoine Audo.
In an interview with Vatican Radio’s Italian Service, Bishop Audo says, “We are a bit confused; no one knows exactly what is happening.  As Christians, as Syrians, we hope to have a solution of reconciliation, of peace, with the help of the United Nations.  An international peace force is needed.  The situation in Aleppo is rather difficult, with problems of electricity, water;  there is no security.  No one knows when the bombs will drop.  And, despite everything, as Christians, we try to be lively, active, to go about business.  For example, this week we will have several days of reflections with all the people who work with us at Caritas.  We try to survive, to be active… we cannot do other things.”

By Deborah Castellano Lubov
RIMINI - As violence in the Middle East escalates daily, the Custos of the Holy Land has said that rather than further discuss the problems, it's important to look at what must be done, how people can co-exist, and raise voices against the violence.
Speaking at Communion and Liberation's annual 'Meeting' in Rimini, Father Pierbattista Pizzaballa declared: "All religious communities have to denounce what’s happening in Iraq and Syria.”
Parolin: “The Events in Iraq are not a Clash Between Islam and Christianity” PDF Print E-mail

The Secretary of State says that “the majority of Muslims refuse those brutal and inhuman methods. Let us hope that the Islamic world speaks up against them. The international community should be present in the country. The Church has not been silent”
The events in Iraq “are not a clash between Islam and Christianity”, says Cardinal Pietro Parolin, who answered some questions on the international crisis for Vatican Insider last night, after celebrating Mass for the 100th anniversary of the death of Saint Pius X. Less than a week ago, during the press conference on the flight back from Korea, Pope Francis explained that it is legitimate to “stop the unjust aggressor”, specifying, however, that “to stop” does not mean “to bomb”, and that the decision about how to intervene must be taken by the international community through the United Nations, rather than by a single country.
