Quotes

Pope Francis has affirmed that "peacemaking is more courageous than warfare," and more recently said that "it is licit to stop the unjust aggressor. I underscore the verb 'stop;' I don't say bomb, make war---stop him." But how we ask?
"With a focus on Islam as it intersects with broader social, cultural, political and economic dynamics in the contemporary world, the center aims to produce new and much-needed knowledge through research, and become an important resource in teaching and public outreach" he said
The U S policy of refusing to pay ransoms to discourage further hostage-taking "is as close as we are likely to come to governments influencing ISIS on the matter of seizing hostages" , said Paul Pillar, a former senior CIA analyst now at Georgetown University
"As dark as things may seem at a given moment," he says, "things can change very rapidly when a social movement takes off."
