Bishop: Do not arm the Libyan rebels
CWN - April 15, 2011
The apostolic vicar of Tripoli is urging the international community not to provide weapons to the rebels who are seeking the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
“The risk of providing weapons to rebels in Benghazi is a way of not ending the war, [but] rather a way to lengthening it,” said Bishop Giovanni Martinelli, who wishes “dialogue to prevail in the truth without getting caught by so many vested interests.”
“We hope that in our small way we can grow the seed of reconciliation which only the power of God can give.”
