altJerusalem - Many Palestinian children in East Jerusalem continue not to have an ID card or proof of permanent residency. Their condition was analyzed during a conference hosted on November 19 in Jerusalem, at the Pontifical Institute Notre Dame of Jerusalem. The conference, entitled "Childhood interrupted: Child registration in Jerusalem", was organized by the Saint-Yves Society, linked to the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, with the Konrad Adenauer Association.

Children of Palestinians in prison, and those who belong to families separated (for example, they have a parent residing in the West Bank), whose reunification finds obstacles in the Israel legislation are those who suffer most and do not have an ID card or permanent residency.

Chaldean Patriarch to Muslims: The Barbarous Acts Committed In The Name of Islam Recalls Nazism. And Your Reactions Are Weak PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 November 2014 07:53

altVienna - Unlike "Nazis and other deadly ideologies of the twentieth century", the jihadists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) carry out their barbaric acts "in the name of Islam". This is why it is "quite shocking the insufficiency of the official Islamic community that only denounced these acts by shy and helpless statements, showing the absence of a real role in raising the awareness of the public about the impending danger of ISIS in the name of religion". With these words the Patriarch of Babylon of the Chaldeans Louis Raphael I appeals to the leaders of the Islamic community so that they assume their responsibility in tackling Islamist extremism which is certainly a mortal danger to the Christians of the Middle East, but are according to the Chaldean Patriarch "no less dangerous" for Muslims themselves.
