Middle East Bishops Say US Has ‘Moral Responsibility’ to Help Christians:

Catholic leaders in the Middle East say that the United Sates has the “moral responsibility” to help stop the savagery against Christians in the region, and to provide assistance to help them stay in the region, because it was the U.S. that unleashed the chaos in the first place….

[Jean-Clément Jeanbart, Greek Melkite Archbishop of Aleppo,] agreed with [the Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Erbil, Iraq, Bashar Matti] Warda that the U.S. has a greater responsibility than other countries, because it made a “mistake” of thinking that it was a “good strategy” to destroy the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

Jeanbart added that he feels the U.S. may be on the brink of making the same mistake again today in Syria, by trying to oust President Bashar al-Assad.
