Iraqi archbishop: UN should investigate anti-Christian violence

Catholic World News - May 13, 2010

The Syrian Catholic archbishop of Mosul has called for a United Nations investigation into the sources of anti-Christian violence in Iraq. β€œAn international inquiry should be done by the United Nations, to investigate and understand who is behind the continuing violence and attacks on the Christian community in Iraq,” said Archbishop Basile Georges Casmoussa. β€œWe need the government to guarantee us protection against those who want to eliminate us. After numerous attacks and violence, I have called for the intervention of the United Nations-- not for a new military contingent, but to initiate an investigation that determines who is behind these continued acts of violence against Christians.”
