Fleeing Iraqi Christians on road to Damascus

"Christians in Iraq paid twice after coalition forces entered," says Guryal, until recently an executive of the Middle East Council of Churches in the northern city of Mosul.

"From the time of independence in 1946, Syria has always opened its doors for every refugee who comes — Armenians, Palestinians, Sudanese and now Iraqis," says Archbishop Isidore Battikha, patriarch of the Greek Catholic Church in Damascus.
S al-B: Good statement, but another mistake by the press. Say’yidna Bat’teekha is patriarchal vicar to His Beatitude, Gregory III.

"They are all welcome in Syria, and the government asks us to help them — we open our churches, our meeting rooms, our schools, and help by money or finding money."
Lord, in Thy mercy: hear our prayer.
