Iraq, the caliphate and the cry of the Christians

The proclamation of the caliphate by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) provoked enthusiasm in the young generations of jihadists but criticisms from numerous Muslim figures who reacted to the moves of Al-Baghadi with detailed arguments that Oasis analyses.

In the dramatic situation of the country the Patriarch of Babylonia of the Chaldeans, Louis Sako, never tires of calling on everyone, including parliamentarians, to their ‘national, historic and moral responsibility’. To his appeal is joined that of Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, the Archbishop of Lyons, who from the heart of old Europe invites the Europeans to go beyond compassion for the Iraqis and to act personally to support them. And with a determination which can also be perceived in the words of Pope Tawadros II, the Pope of the Copts, who describes the situation of Christians in Egypt, between external political tensions and internal dynamics.
