German Bishops urge peace loving Muslims to realize the factors causing many Muslims to join the IS terrorist group.
In a statement on the Middle East, the German Bishops’ Conference said that nations are obligated to act to prevent genocide. While condemning the persecution of Christians, the bishops said in their statement that it was “especially disturbing” that hundreds of Muslims in Europe have joined the ranks of the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant.
“The overwhelming majority of peace-loving Muslims must face the question of which factors underlie the worrying developments in their own religious community.”
The bishops also urge for prayer and humanitarian assistance for the victims of Middle East violence.
