The Catholic world leaders in a meeting condemned the terrorist attack on Paris which have claimed over 129 lives and left many injured. In the Meeting, the leaders made reference not only the Paris Attacks but the bombing blast attacks on Beirut too which left at least 46 people dead and more than 200 people injured.
The World Catholic Leaders call on everyone to stand up and unite in love to fight terrorism for the good of our brothers and sisters in various dangerous regions that are vulnerable to terrorist attacks.
“The time has come for the world to stand united against terrorism and to confront the reasons of terrorism, such as feelings of oppression, hatred, bad education and fanaticism, with no double standards,” said the Jerusalem-based Assembly of Catholic Bishops of the Holy Land.
They called for a unification of “forces of good” and “countries and followers of all religions against violence, which hits the world with increased brutality.” Otherwise, they said, it will hit everyone “sooner or later.”
