Thought For The Day

"Our sufferings today are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future. I lost my diocese to Islam. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever growing number of Muslims. Also you are in danger. You must take strong and courageous decisions, even at the cost of contradicting your principles. You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal. Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your home.”

Emil Nona, Chaldean Archbishop of Mosul.

  1. Wow, what prophetic words. They need to be broadcast far and wide, but I doubt they will be. Is there a date for that quote? Thanks.
