Catholic Patriarch of Syria: U.S. Attack on Syria Would Be ‘Criminal Act’


Excerpt
Gregory III, the Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, who oversees the Melkite Greek Catholic Church in Syria and Lebanon, which is in union with the Holy See and Pope Francis. (AP) (CNSNews.com) – Were the Obama administration to launch an attack on Syria, as President Obama has said he intends to do, it would be “a criminal act, which will only reap more victims,” said Gregory III, the leader of the Greek Catholic Church in Syria and Lebanon.“We must listen to the Pope’s appeal for peace in Syria,” said Patriarch Gregory III. “If Western countries want to create true democracy then they must build it on reconciliation, through dialogue between Christians and Muslims, not with weapons. This attack being planned by the United States is a criminal act, which will only reap more victims, in addition to the tens of thousands of these two years of war. This will destroy the Arab world’s trust in the West.” - See more at: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/catholic-patriarch-syria-us-attack-syria-would-be-criminal-act#sthash.RyNRVpgI.dpuf
