countless number of Christians and Muslims are victims
of the violence; the hospitals are full with injuries
and the pain is endless. Syrians, in spite of their
religious backgrounds, have the right to live in their
country with pride and dignity. During the past fifteen
months, we have lost many people and a large number of
Syrians were forced to evacuate from their homes.
Christians had to flee their towns, cities and
everything they own, and our beloved priests had to
leave their churches.
|Patriarch Ignatius IV of Antioch and All the East
We call all Syrians, in the name of God, to accept each
other and live as one nation in our beloved Syria, the
cradle of prophets and religions. We urge the United
Nations and all Arab organizations to understand and
respect our beloved country and to work together in order
to achieve peace and stability in Syria.
