Hmmm. This is very interesting:
Pope Francis has told a group of Jewish leaders “first it was your turn and now it is our turn” in a discussion about the persecution and murder of Christians in the Middle East.
The leader of the Catholic faith drew a comparison between the Jewish Holocaust and the current persecution of Christians in Syria and Iraq during a meeting with 40 Jewish leaders at the Vatican on Wednesday.
“Pope Francis told us privately that he believes we are in World War Three,” said Ronald S. Lauder, the head of the World Jewish Congress.
“But unlike the first two world wars, instead of happening all at once this war is coming in stages,” he said.
“[Pope Francis] said ‘first it was your turn and now it is our turn’. In other words first Jews suffered savage attacks that were met with the world’s silence and now it is Christians who are being annihilated and the world is silent.”
Go here to read the rest. It is good that Pope Francis understands that we are in a war. PopeWatch hopes that the Pope will also understand that until military action is taken against those slaying Christians, murders will not stop.
