Iraqi envoy to Vatican urges international help for Christians to return home

By Inés San Martín/ cruxnow.com
: Speaking outside the program at an event in Rome on migration, the new Iraqi ambassador to the Vatican said Wednesday, June 19, that the country’s Christian community is at risk after violence perpetrated by ISIS, but people who fled now want to go back. To do so, she said, they need help rebuilding the regions devastated by Islamic State’s reign of terror. “Neither the government nor the Iraqi population at large want Christians to leave, because we know they are an essential part of our society,” said Amal Mussa Hussain Al-Rubaye, Ambassador to the Holy See. “Thank you for caring for our migrants, but from this place, I want to say to the world: if you want to help our migrants, do so by helping us rebuild Iraq.” Visibly emotional, Al-Rubaye said hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who’ve...
