Christians urged to stay in Iraq

Iraqi Christian religious leaders meeting in Lebanon called on Western churches not to encourage migration and resettlement programs for refugees outside Iraq, but “to focus their efforts on bringing back security and stability inside Iraq for all Iraqis.”

The 12 church leaders also called upon Iraqi Christians “to stay in their homeland and participate actively in “building educational and social institutions that contribute to national reconciliation, peace-building and stability.”
