Islamic State: Vatican backs using military force

The Vatican says force may be necessary to stop attacks on Christians and other Middle East minorities by Islamic State (IS) if no political solution is found.

Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican’s top diplomat at the UN in Geneva, said jihadists were committing “genocide” and must be stopped.

The Vatican traditionally opposes military intervention in the region.

However, Pope Francis decried the beheading in February of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by IS in Libya.

The militants have targeted minority religious groups in the parts of Syria and Iraq under their control. Thousands more people have been forced to flee their homes.

I believe the western world will come to agree that a new Crusade is necessary, that the Muslim terror states must be taken out as one.

We may be pushed into it unwillingly but that day will come as there will be no other choice.

    “I believe the western world will come to agree that a new Crusade is
    necessary, that the Muslim terror states must be taken out as one.

    We may be pushed into it unwillingly but that day will come as there will be no other choice.”

    Yep, and then we’ll be re-educated about what the Crusades were really all about and how they really were abundantly necessary to thwart the genocidal dreams of Islam. Lessons will be learned.

      I’ve commented on numerous sites about a religious war being inevitable and have been told that’s exactly what we must avoid – though no one can explain exactly why. It seems to me that we’re already in a religious war – we just aren’t fighting back.

  • ontario john

    I and a lot of other ex servicemen would eagerly join. Even if the Toronto Star would now list us as terrorists. A good start is that there is already organized Christian forces from that region working alongside the Kurds there.

  • john700

    The Western world is anti-Christian and dying. Therefore, no Crusades. By the way, the Crusades were not very successful.

    • winniec

      A new crusade has to be ideological to destroy the root of Islam.

  • Jason
    There is only greed and evil in the men who fight today; the song of the crusader, has long since gone away ….

  • Glenfilthie

    Ya got that exactly backwards, BCF.
    Before we can fight them over there, we will need to fight the ones here first.

  • rufusrastasjohnsonbrown

    The first problem that needs to be addressed before we march off to battle is the piss poor and questionable leadership in the west.Would you want to send anyone off to war under the leadership that America or Europe has now ?

  • just a thought

    “…if no political solution is found.”
    Anyone who thinks a political solution is possible has already lost.

  • Pontifex Maximus

    “Mind you, the reality that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is nothing other than a dime store caricature or a cartoon of a theological, liturgical, pastoral, political, and moral revolutionary does not detract in the slightest the harm that his wretched, venal, vulgar, coarse, irreverent blasphemer has done in the past two years. Of course not. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is presumed to be “Pope Francis” by all but a very tiny group of mostly warring Catholics, many of whom busy themselves with the latest rumors about each other. What Bergoglio says and does matters because he means to eradicate the last semblance of anything that could be recognized as Catholicism within every single nook and cranny of the conciliar structures. Bergoglio’s revolutionary agenda has had the benefit of showing where “Saint John XXIII’s” “opening to the world” was meant to lead. There is no pretense of solemnity. There is no use of obfuscation or paradox to mask his Modernism. He has proudly displayed his full credentials as an unreconstructed Modernist, a Chardinian who is on a daily mission to turn his false religious sect into little more than a Saul Alinksy-type “industrial area foundation” group that aims to do some kind of social work while turning a blind eye to the horrors of personal sin, which just happens to be responsible for all of the social problems in the world.”

    “God may be wrongly worshiped either by false worship or by superfluous worship being paid Him. . . . The ceremonies and practices of the Jewish religion signified that the Messiah was to come, and so now, after the coming of Our Lord, they could not be employed without superstition [=false worship]. Inasmuch as falsehood in religion is a grave injury to God, this species of superstition is mortally sinful.”

    In what seems to be a more relaxed, more candid conversation, Michael Matt’s facial expression is clearly one of concern – so he begs Chris Ferrara to put a positive spin on what is probably beginning to dawn on him is the writing on the wall.
