Archbishop: Sanctions Worse than Bombs!

A DAMAGED PARADISE:

When I arrived in Damascus in 2006 I hardly ever met anyone asking for aid. Querying this fact I was helped by a fellow priest who told me that this was normal in a country where education and hospital facilities are free:  low salaries were enough for everyday needs.  There was no need to beg.

Eight years of war have destroyed an entire country and its peaceful people: unmerited destruction, 600,000 deaths, 12 million refugees and homeless exiles, a paralyzed economy, worthless money, and. ever-rising inflation, all with a crushing embargo. .

Families are saying now: we were better off with bombs flying around us. We could take shelter and hide somewhere. .How can we get away now with an economic war knocking at the door?

A WOUNDED HUMANITY:

The economic struggle is fast taking the place of the violent military interventions and touches all social classes; the embargo on anything from Iran has engulfed the Syrian people who are seemingly forgotten and left in misery. .

If it was hard to meet a poor Syrian in 2006, today it is impossible not to come across a Syrian who is not living in need whilst facing impossible social problems, all crowned by  a constant lack of work, and therefore continual unemployment.

How difficult it is to see those families torn apart more and more, and obliged to continually beg to stay alive. However, the hardest is not that of seeing people in need but how their human dignity is so wounded.  Bitterness can be seen so easily in the faces which do not look one in the eye in order to avoid further humiliation.

In the face of this hurt and broken people the Church keeps looking at the EMPTY TOMB.

Christians Angry at Sanctions

“We are angry at the sanctions imposed by the European Union and the United States against Syria, which only exacerbate the humanitarian situation without having any impact on the end of hostilities and the establishment of peace.”

“On the one hand, all the armed rebel groups are now amassed in the province of Idlib. Al-Nusra, the local emanation of al-Qaeda, recognized as a terrorist group by the UN and the international community, is in the process of eliminating or engulfing all other movements, of Islamic inspiration, with the force of weapons. For months, the Syrian army has wanted to launch an offensive to free the latter province from the hands of terrorists, 30 thousand of them foreigners, but the Western powers, ……. are preventing it.”

“On the other hand, a war is unfolding on our territory and it is the one that pits Turkey against the Kurdish militias. Finally, the Americans who illegally established two bases in a sovereign nation, today want to withdraw following the decision of President Donald Trump. But his administration, like Congress, are incapable of reaching agreement on this strategy and try to sabotage it by all means possible.”

“During the difficult years of the conflict, our aid programs sought to nourish, dress, give food and shelter to displaced people and their families in need. Now, we believe that the priority is to guarantee work to people so that they can earn a decent living from the fruits of their labour and become independent, breaking free from the aid upon which they have depended for seven years now.

Unfortunately, our resources like those of all others are greatly diminished. With the end of the fighting, the donations of individuals have dropped considerably. And international charitable organizations refuse, in most cases, to finance development programs; some still intend to support outdated relief plans. As if we wanted to keep people in need forever, in a state of begging and dependence, rather than restoring their dignity and hope.”

“Yes, we are angry.”

Is War Coming?

A Catholic bishop writes:

On the international scene for several years now Russia has been vilified and its President has been blackened in the vile Western media, because the powers that control the Western nations and their media and their politicians want the third World War to give them hegemony or control over the entire world, and Russia is the main obstacle in the way of that worldwide monopoly of power. However, many souls all over the world have come to trust more in the fruits of Putin’s Russia avoiding war than in the fruits of the Western politicians and media doing their best to provoke war. Here follows the summary by Russians of a major speech of Putin given at the Valdai conference in Socchi, Russia, in October of 2014. Let readers judge for themselves if Putin’s words are reasonable, and if they correspond to his deeds:

1. Russia will no longer play games and engage in back-room negotiations over trifles. But Russia is prepared for serious conversations and agreements, if these are conducive to collective security, are based on fairness and take into account the interests of each side.

2. All systems of global collective security now lie in ruins. There are no longer any international security guarantees at all. And the entity that destroyed them has a name: The United States of America.

3. The builders of the New World Order have failed, having built a sand castle. Whether or not a new world order of any sort is to be built is not just Russia’s decision, but it is a decision that will not be made without Russia.

4. Russia favours a conservative approach to introducing innovations into the social order, but is not opposed to investigating and discussing such innovations, to see if introducing any of them might be justified.

5. Russia has no intention of going fishing in the murky waters created by America’s ever-expanding “empire of chaos,” and has no interest in building a new empire of her own (this is unnecessary; Russia’s challenges lie in developing her already vast territory). Neither is Russia willing to act as a saviour of the world, as she has done in the past.

6. Russia will not attempt to reformat the world in her own image, but neither will she allow anyone to reformat her in their image. Russia will not close herself off from the world, but anyone who tries to close her off from the world will be sure to reap a whirlwind.

7. Russia does not wish for the chaos to spread, does not want war, and has no intention of starting one. However, today Russia sees the outbreak of global war as almost inevitable, is prepared for it, and is continuing to prepare for it. Russia does not want war– nor does she fear it.

8. Russia does not intend to take an active role in thwarting those who are still attempting to construct their New World Order – until their efforts start to impinge on Russia’s key interests. Russia would prefer to stand by and watch them give themselves as many lumps as their poor heads can take. But those who manage to drag Russia into this process, through disregard for her interests, will be taught the true meaning of pain.

9. In her external, and, even more so, internal politics, Russia’s power will rely not on the elites and their back-room dealing, but on the will of the people. (End of the summary of Putin’s speech.)

If, when and how another World War breaks out, is entirely in God’s hands, depending on what mankind deserves. But if God must punish us for our own good, all sincere prayer between now and then will help to mitigate the human disaster. It is the enemies of God on both sides who will really have caused it.

Kyrie eleison.

Christian Voices from Syria

“H” was born in Damascus, and legally immigrated to the United States from Syria more than 20 years ago, long before the current war began. She became a U.S. citizen and earned a doctor’s degree from an American university. She is completely fluent in both English and Arabic. She recently returned from a trip back to Syria, where she has many family members and friends who keep her apprised of the situation there. She is also one of the kindest and most devoted Christians I have ever met. I am keeping H’s name confidential, as I do not wish this interview to in any way jeopardize her family’s safety in Syria, or the status of her professional work in the U.S.

Franciscan Superior: “It’s a Lie”

Father Elia Karakach, Superior of the Franciscan Convent of Damascus:

“That ploy of chemical weapons is a lie.

We woke up at 4 am to the hiss of the missiles and we realized that the attacks were under way. Explosions were heard around Damascus. Now everything is quiet in the center but people are worried about the future.

We knew the US intended to bomb after the alleged chemical attack on the Eastern Ghouta but hope was placed in an objective investigation on the use of chemical weapons and that for this there would be no missiles launched”, declares the friar who hopes “it is not repeated what has already happened in Iraq that was invaded in 2003 [by a coalition formed for the most part by the United States and the United Kingdom, and by minor contingents of other states, ed] because the regime of Saddam Hussein had been accused of possessing weapons of mass destruction. Weapons that were never found. The intent is to destroy Syria. The project goes on with the bombs. We just have to pray for peace now more than ever.

That ploy of chemical weapons is a lie, it is once again American politics playing the game of power; it is a scenario already seen with Saddam Hussein, and if that is remembered, you see the consequences! Trump, like those who preceded him, uses the lie of chemical weapons to justify his attack on Syria, which aims to take control of the Syrian territory so as to become the hub of oil trafficking. This is Trump’s project, a pure project of power, supported by France and England and by the silence of the International Community.

Trump’s missile attack and its lying justification are a serious threat to world peace; Trump again supports the rebels against Assad, and asks the world to stand with him because he wants to eliminate a “bloody dictator” and so he supports rebels who promise a future of terror. The International Community must not fall into Trump’s trap, the choice is not between the rebels and Assad, the choice that the Christian community testifies to in Syria is between war and peace. Trump wants war, the Church in Syria builds peace! … “

English Bishop Ashamed

“Do not trust one inch the vile British newspapers, nor our politicians. Personally, I’m absolutely ashamed of England’s part in pursuing this attack on Syria, or supporting this attack on Syria. I’m ashamed of Theresa May and Boris Johnson. Poor things! Poor wretched things! What has England suffered? Such lies, Such unspeakable lies! And England will be punished!
