VATICAN CITY: As Pope Francis continues to be astride the fine line between calling for the end of persecution of Christians in Iraq and blessing American air strikes against the Islamic State (also known as the “Caliphate,” ISIS, or ISIL), in Iraq is increasing concern for the pontiff’s and the public’s safety.

Earlier this week, the Roman newspaper Il Tempo published an alarming report that Pope Francis is “in the crosshairs” of ISIS for “bearing false witness” against Islam.
