Catholic Leader in Iraq Asks Western Nations:  “If They Kill Us All, Will You Do Something Then?”

Christians across the Middle East are routinely targeted, but Catholics in Iraq are under asking what will have to happen for their plight to be noticed:

Warning that a Middle East empty of Christians would be “just like the Taliban,” Iraq’s most senior Catholic leader pointedly called on the West to show greater concern for suffering Christians in the region.

“We feel forgotten and isolated,” said Patriarch Louis Raphael I: Sako, head of Iraq’s Chaldean Catholic Church.

“We sometimes wonder, if they kill us all, what would be the reaction of Christians in the West? Would they do something then?”

Sako made clear he’s not asking for a mobilization “to protect Christians,” but rather Western efforts to support “harmonious societies for all human beings”, based on “a civil state in which the only criterion is citizenship grounded in full equality under the law.”
