Jerusalem prelate joins protest against foreign military intervention

Catholic World News - September 04, 2013

Joined by local priests and others, including Muslim and Druze speakers, Auxiliary Bishop Giacinto-Boulos Marcuzzo of Jerusalem took part in a peaceful protest against foreign military intervention in Syria, according to the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem.

The protest took place on August 31 near Tamra, a city of 30,000 in northern Israel.

Bishop Marcuzzo spoke of the “dangers of a foreign military aggression against Syria, and its potential disastrous consequences for the whole region.”

Bishop Marcuzzo also referred to “recurring pleas of Pope Francis” and local Church leaders.

“These positions oppose all shapes of violence, warfare, and any foreign aggression which only worsen the issues instead of resolving them, as in the experience with Iraq and Libya, and insist on an urgent comeback to dialogue, national reconciliation, and peace,” Bishop Marcuzzo said.
