    ISLAM - VATICAN - SYRIA

    Muslim doctor urges people to join the pope and raise our voices against war



    For Izzeldin Abuelaisch, famous around the world for his book 'I Shall Not Hate', it is not enough to talk about peace. "Everyone must act following the example of Pope Francis. In the Middle East, crisis and hate are a consequence of a world that has forgotten its values."

    Toronto (AsiaNews) - "The Day of Prayer for Syria the pope has called for helps us understand that the crisis in the Middle East is not taking place in another world, far from us, but in this world," said Izzeldin Abuelaisch, a Palestinian Muslim obstetrician and gynecologist, famous around the world for his book I Shall Not Hate, written after his three daughters and a niece were killed during Operation Cast Lead (2008-2009). Speaking to AsiaNews, he also said, "I will participate with joy in the prayer vigil. I am doing everything possible to spread" news about it.

    For the Palestinian doctor, it is not enough to talk about peace. People must act and speak out following the example of the pope. This is especially true for people who believe in God, Christians and Muslims.

    "Faith," he explained, "cannot be an ideal. It must involve action from the heart and bring each one of us to ask ourselves what we can do to change this world of violence."

    Abuelaish points out that the violence and hatred that are killing Syria are endemic and threaten the entire world.

    "In many countries of the Middle East," he noted, "there is poverty, ignorance, and little hope. Keeping the situation this was lays the foundation for the hatred that leads to wars. We must defend peace and freedom everywhere to protect our world. Human life and its meaning are the only thing that is worth fighting for. "(S.C.)

    Vincenzo Faccioli Pintozzi

    The government yesterday blocked a group of 50 young pilgrims who had already boarded a plane bound for Krakow. Interrogated for hours by immigration, they were "admonished" and sent home with orders not to contact anyone abroad. Meanwhile, "young Chinese Catholics" hang around central World Youth Day locations in groups of five or six, with the task of spying on fellow countrymen. They work for cultural institutes or Chinese companies in Poland.

    Fr Samir: Islamic terror in France and Germany a crisis of integration, but above all of politics

    Samir Khalil Samir

    The kidnapping and murder of a priest near Rouen (France) and the various attacks in Würzburg, Munich, Ansbach (Germany) were carried out by young people, who were indoctrinated with ease. Germany was a model for the integration of refugees. But radical Islam cannot be assimilated. It is supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. There is no other road other than integration. But we must tell the truth: the Koran contains elements of war and violence. Western politicians suffer from ignorance and a loss of all moral sentiment.
