Adopt a christian from Mosul

 

 

 

 

For months now Pope Francis and the Iraqi Church have been imploring us not to "stand silently by" "or "look the other way" as our brothers and sisters are persecuted because of their faith.

The Pope is also asking Christians to "pray intensely" in an "effective participation" and sign of "tangible support" for all of them. This is why, some time ago, AsiaNews launched the campaign "Adopt a Christian from Mosul" which has allowed us to raise and send approximately 1.5 million Euros to support the daily needs of Iraqi refugees who fled Mosul under the threat of the Islamic State. Their needs continue to be enormous and their return home far from immediate. Because of this, the bishops are planning the transition from emergency plans that have been in place until now to a more stable relief program. This will entail the transfer of all the Christian refugees - about 130 thousand people, 21 thousand families - to houses, where they can restart their lives, get a job, think about their children's future. AsiaNews asks our readers and friends to continue to support our campaign "Adopt a Christian from Mosul" so we can help cover the costs of this project, which amounts to an estimated 3.5 million euro.

LEBANON
Trump, Marine Le Pen and the Middle East: Lebanon against walls and divisions

Fady Noun

The beginning of the Trump presidency has been characterised by the "babelisation" of American society. Each country pours out his hatred against an external enemy. The current global crisis has religious roots. At the heart of the chaos there is the Jihadi threat. The third world war cannot be won with drones, but with moderation and promoting rapprochement and discussions.


EGYPT - ISLAM
Al Azhar under the influence of Daesh Islamism

Kamel Abderrahmani

The official religious institutions and so-called Islamic universities are the cause of the immobility of the Muslim world. The programs taught and literature used at Al Azhar are the same that are applied on the ground by all armed terrorists. No comparison possible between Al Azhar and the Vatican. The Vatican has hosted Iraqi Muslims and Syrians fleeing the war. Al Azhar has never done anything for Christians and Yazidis. The persecution of Nasr Mohamed Abdellah, eager to modernize Islam. The comment of one Muslim student.
