Cardinal says U.S. is Morally Obligated to Protect Iraqi Christians


'Our nation has a moral obligation not to abandon those Iraqis who cannot defend themselves'


On the eve of major troop withdrawals from Iraq, the United State's leading Catholic bishop says the U.S. has a moral obligation to help Iraqis protect its citizens, particularly Christians, dozens of whom have been wounded and killed in recent weeks.



'Having invaded Iraq, our nation has a moral obligation not to abandon those Iraqis who cannot defend themselves,' Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, wrote in a letter to President Obama.

"More must be done to help ensure that refugees and displaced persons are able to return to their homes safely."
At a recent Vatican synod of Middle Eastern bishops, Archbishop Athanase Matti Shaba Matoka of the Syrian Catholic Church in Iraq said the war has brought his country "destruction and ruin on all levels.
