We deeply must regret that there is still some anti-Semitism in the Church, despite its teachings that this is a mortal sin that strikes at the very heart of the Church.
But saying that the Vatican has concerns for Christians trapped, under threat or attack or even slaughter (depending where and when) in Muslim terrorista or pagan lands, does not excuse the lack of the organized Church’s tangible aid to helping those persecuted Christians .. either by helping improve their local conditions (where possible, I know it is sometimes not) or else by offering to assist their relocation to safer countries.
Quite frankly, repeated statements of “we care about the lives of Christians trapped under Islamic regimes” .. without any visible, significant, and tangible action to genuinely assist them............ I hate to say it, but all the talk and so little visible walk or real help....... does wear quite thin..... very thin, after all these years.
Sorry to have to say that. I pray we will see the Church taking some real action to help people, within its resources of course, as soon as possible.
PS: The Church made a terrible, horrible mistake not asking Israel to stay in Bethleham! The Muslims there have run out over half the Christian community and the rest is living under daily threat.... what a stupid thing to have let happen!!!!
It was the Israeli government that was encouraging the Muslims to build their Mosque in Bethlehem, and decided to pull back and let the Muzzies run things. There was little or nothing that the Pope could do about it.
