Time has come for the world to stand united against terrorism, and to confront the reasons of terrorism such as feelings of “oppression, hatred, bad education and fanaticism”, with no “double-standards”. These are the realistic suggestions contained in the statement issued by the Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land, to express condolences before the “attacks in Beirut and Paris”, where innocent lives were again killed by a “culture of death which opposes God’s and humans’ laws”.
In the statement, released by the official bodies of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem and sent to Agenzia Fides, the Catholic Bishops of the Holy Land recall the urgent need to join forces of all Countries and followers of all religions against violence which hits the world within increased brutality. “Otherwise – the statement said – it will hit us sooner or later”. The Bishops of the Holy Land concluded their message by praying to the Almighty “for terror preachers, so they backtrack and regret what they do”.
