An update on the political transition in Egypt - September 2012

Où en est la transition politique en Égypte ?  Septembre 2012

Le monde musulman s’est enflammé une fois encore à la seule vue de quelques extraits d’un mauvais film américain, jugé offensant par beaucoup de musulmans. Au-delà des violences inutiles qui en résultent, l’incident n’aide pas à comprendre ce qui se passe dans les pays du « printemps arabe ». Il tend, au contraire, à confirmer les analyses pessimistes de ceux qui n’y voient qu’une victoire bien inquiétante de l’islamisme. Inquiétante, car, selon certains, nous ne vivrions là qu’une étape vers une emprise qui, à terme, devrait toucher l’Occident. Il est urgent de tenter de présenter un point de vue un peu plus serein, qui ne cache pas des inquiétudes légitimes.

PAKISTAN - "Too many Christian children victims of violence": Dominicans appeal to the government and the UN

Lahore (Agenzia Fides) - "The news, continually increasing, regarding violence against Christian children are really annoying, disturbing. For Christians, it seems that living in Pakistan is more and more difficult. There are many Christian girls kidnapped, raped and converted to Islam by force and even killed as in the case of Amariah Masih, the 'Maria Goretti of Pakistan'. There are children kidnapped and killed for shady dealings, as the recent case of Sunil Masih or Shazia Bashir. Now the children are also accused of blasphemy, as Rimsha Masih. If children are attacked, it means that a limit of intolerable abuse and inhumanity have been reached": This is what the Dominican Fr. James Channan, OP, Director of "Peace Center" in Lahore, strongly committed to interreligious dialogue says to Fides.
