The Synod of the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf met last week and unanimously affirmed the following statement about Iraq:
The Synod of the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf, representing the Anglican Churches within the region, can find no theological or humanitarian justification for the proposed invasion of Iraq. We strongly disagree that is the solution to the present stance of the Iraqi regime or for the suffering of the Iraqi people. The Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf encourages people of all faiths within the region to work together for lasting peace and justice for Iraq.
