Iglesias de Oriente condenan ataque contra Siria 

d2d2e82a9f9294a9667957da3d627141_XL

Con un comunicado conjunto, Giovanni X, Patriarca Griego Ortodoxo de Antioquía y todo el Oriente; Ignatius Aphrem II Patriarca Sirio-Ortodoxo de Antioquía y Oriente; y Joseph Absi, Patriarca melquita-greco católico de Antioquía, Alejandría y Jerusalén; condenaron el ataque llevado a cabo por los Estados Unidos, Reino Unido y Francia en la noche del 13 y 14 de abril en algún pueblo sirio.

La prensa informó que “esta agresión brutal es una clara violación del derecho internacional y de la Carta de las Naciones Unidas, ya que es un asalto injustificado a un país soberano, miembro de la ONU”, y lamenta el hecho de que se trata “de países poderosos a los que Siria no ha causado ningún daño”.

Por encima de todo, rechazan las acusaciones “que el ejército sirio estaría usando armas químicas y que Siria es un país que posee y utiliza este tipo de armas” ya que “las armas son declaraciones sin fundamento y no son compatibles con la evidencia suficiente”.

Además, el ataque “destruye las posibilidades de una solución política pacífica y conduce a una escalada de mayores proporciones” y “alienta a las organizaciones extremistas y les da ímpetu para continuar su terrorismo”.

Por ello; los tres firmantes solicitan a las Naciones Unidas “asumir un rol en la pacificación” y que las “Iglesias de los países que participaron en la agresión, deben cumplir con sus deberes cristianos, de acuerdo con las enseñanzas del Evangelio, y condenar este brutal agresión”.

A continuación, se renueva la confianza en el “coraje, el heroísmo y el sacrificios del Ejército Árabe Siria que valientemente protege Siria y proporciona seguridad a su población” y alaba “la posición valiente de los países que son amigables hacia Siria y a su pueblo”. Los tres patriarcas ofrecen sus oraciones “por la seguridad, la victoria y la liberación de Siria de todo tipo de guerra y terrorismo”. También rezamos por la paz en Siria y en todo el mundo y hacemos un llamado para fortalecer los esfuerzos de reconciliación nacional, para proteger al país y preservar la dignidad de todos los sirios”.

A Statement Issued by the Patriarchates of Antioch and all the East for the Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, and Greek-Melkite Catholic

 God is with us; Understand all ye nations and submit yourselves!

 We, the Patriarchs: John X, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, and Joseph Absi, Melkite-Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem, condemn and denounce the brutal aggression that took place this morning against our precious country Syria by the USA, France and the UK, under the allegations that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. We raise our voices to affirm the following:

  1. This brutal aggression is a clear violation of the international laws and the UN Charter, because it is an unjustified assault on a sovereign country, member of the UN.
  2. It causes us great pain that this assault comes from powerful countries to which Syria did not cause any harm in any way.
  3. The allegations of the USA and other countries that the Syrian army is using chemical weapons and that Syria is a country that owns and uses this kind of weapon, is a claim that is unjustified and unsupported by sufficient and clear evidence.
  4. The timing of this unjustified aggression against Syria, when the independent International Commission for Inquiry was about to start its work in Syria, undermines of the work of this commission.
  5. This brutal aggression destroys the chances for a peaceful political solution and leads to escalation and more complications.
  6. This unjust aggression encourages the terrorist organizations and gives them momentum to continue in their terrorism.
  7. We call upon the Security Council of the United Nations to play its natural role in bringing peace rather than contribute to escalation of wars.
  8. We call upon all churches in the countries that participated in the aggression, to fulfill their Christian duties, according to the teachings of the Gospel, and condemn this aggression and to call their governments to commit to the protection of international peace.
  9. We salute the courage, heroism and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army which courageously protects Syria and provide security for its people. We pray for the souls of the martyrs and the recovery of the wounded. We are confident that the army will not bow before the external or internal terrorist aggressions; they will continue to fight courageously against terrorism until every inch of the Syrian land is cleansed from terrorism. We, likewise, commend the brave stand of countries which are friendly to the Syria and its people.

 We offer our prayers for the safety, victory, and deliverance of Syria from all kinds of wars and terrorism. We also pray for peace in Syria and throughout the world, and call for strengthening the efforts of the national reconciliation for the sake of protecting the country and preserving the dignity of all Syrians.

Damascus, 14 April 2018
