Metropolitans of Aleppo Mor Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim and Paul Yazigi

Statement of Prince Hassan on anniversary of kidnapping of two metropolitans of Aleppo

Amman-en.abouna.org

Following is the text of the statement issued by His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan Bin Talal on Monday. July 22, marking the 6th anniversary of the kidnapping of metropolitans of Aleppo Mor Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim and Paul Yazigi:

"Six whole years have now passed since the kidnapping of metropolitans of Aleppo Mor Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim, and Paul Yazigi. This represents an abominable action which has rightly stirred feelings of condemnation and repugnance in the hearts of so many, Christians and Muslims alike. The two bishops have striven to serve the sons and daughters of their community while calling for and advocating the values of love, brotherhood, peace and coexistence.

"While adding my voice to that of our brethren in the Syriac Orthodox Church we renew the call to the noble and sincere sons of the nation to devote to this humanitarian matter the interest it deserves, and to adopt the practical measures to ensure ending the suffering caused by the kidnapping and aggression which has lasted for too long. We likewise appeal to the international community, including the United Nations and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to shoulder their responsibility in this regard, particularly given that this issue is considered a “crime against humanity”, and yet, lamentably, it has been deprived of the powerful voice of the international community and its fundamental role.

"We must not forget that our larger Arab homeland is of distinctive civilizations and cultural structures enriched by religious and cultural diversity. In reality the moderate Message of Islam had a substantial impact on the formation of its civilization and its humane paradigm that is anchored in authentic teachings and the values which emphasize and affirm the sanctity of life, and the entrenchment of the concepts of justice, tolerance, peace and respect for the other.

We entreat God Almighty through our prayers to bestow freedom on the kidnapped metropolitans and to bring them back safely to their next of kin and their communities in their homeland."
