The bishops of North Africa have called for an end to military conflict in Libya.
According to Catholic Culture they have said, “We know that war solves nothing, and when it breaks out, it is just as uncontrollable as the explosion of a nuclear reactor. The first victims are always the poorest and most disadvantaged. Moreover, whether we like it or not, the war in the Near East, and now in the Maghreb, will always be interpreted as a ‘crusade.’ This will have inevitable consequences on the friendly relations that Christians and Muslims have woven and continue to weave.”
Amen to that, say I. Well stated. War solves nothing in the long run.
