The Impact of Unrest on Syrian Interfaith Religious Life

For the last 30 years, Catholic priest Paolo Dall’Oglio has lived in a Syrian Christian settlement dating to the sixth century and has engaged in interfaith dialogue with the dominant Muslims and the few Jews remaining in the country. In a four-minute news video prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a source for cutting-edge reporting and analysis of events in the religious world, correspondent Fred De Sam Lazaro chronicles the history of Christianity and the work of Father Paolo in Syria. In a supplemental video of interview excerpts, Father Paolo, recently exiled from Syria, addresses the impact of the civil war on the Syrian people and calls on the U.S. and Russia to agree that the citizenry need to be protected from their government’s predations, an agreement that is the precursor to U.N. intervention.
