The Russian intervention has exposed the American intervention comedy. When the Americans and their allies were bombing, the Islamic state expanded.When the Russians began to bomb Isis has finally started to retreat. Let me tell you … I begin ‘to question the role of the Americans ”
Monsignor George Abu Khazen , 69, Catholic bishop of Aleppo, did not mince his words. For months he praised the Russian intervention and the Syrian army offensive because, as reiterated in this interview with Il Giornale, “the advance of our military provides greater security to all the inhabitants of the city, offering for the first time a little ‘ of hope. Before this offensive the bombs of the rebels fell on the city and killed more than ten civilians a day. Not to mention that Aleppo has remained for two months without water and without electricity for six. Today, however, everything is finally getting back to normal.
Therefore, the Russian intervention was positive?
“As long as the intervention were the United States and its allies the Islamic state continued to spread and has come to occupy up to 50 percent of the territory. With the Russian intervention, Islamic State and Al Nusra Front have lost in less than two months, many of the occupied territories. With whom should we stay? With Al Nusra Front and Isis or with the Russians? But the most important consequence is the Russian intervention in the peace process. For the first time in five years they opened a dialogue between the parties which led to a cease-fire. ” Organs of information in Europe accuse the Syrian army to lay siege to Aleppo. ” I do not know if you ignore the truth or follow a kind of official truth … the Syrian army is a regular army pledged to defend its civilians. He had to leave the city in the hands of the Islamic State and Al Qaeda? For us, the Syrian army is liberation. Where he resumed his life. In many villages, the children did not go to school for three or four years. Just arrived the army returning learners. If this is a siege then welcome the siege. ” Aleppo Christians are with Bashar Assad. ” As Christians, we are not with Bashar Assad. We are with the values of coexistence and tolerance of Syria in the Middle East has represented an authentic pluralism oasis ensuring religious coexistence of 23 ethnic groups.
In Europe, it was said that the Russians bombing generate new refugees.
“And those who came before the Russian intervention where did they escape? In Europe, you should learn a bit ‘better … here comes the army where people do not run away, but returned to their villages. ” What are your hopes for Aleppo and Syria? ” We must all endeavor to ensure the continuation of this peace process. The governments that have supported the groups came to fight in Syria should ask them to call it quits. Must push to find a solution through dialogue. ” There is room for a reconciliation? ” The Russian intervention has prompted many militants to seek reconciliation and dialogue. Right now many rebels are abandoning their arms and cooperate with the government. You Europeans should understand that if peace comes here you will not have the problem of refugees. Syria in the past did not export refugees, but welcomed them. So if you Europeans really want to solve the problem of the refugees work for peace in Syria “.
