Head of the Russian Orthodox Church Calls Fight Against Islamic Terrorism “Holy War”

The head of the Russian Orthodox Church has called the fight against terrorism a “holy war” and urged international unity and an abandoning of double standards to defeat this global evil.

“Today, when our warriors take part in combat operations in the Middle East, we know that this is not an aggression, occupation or an attempt to impose some ideology on other people, this has nothing to do with supporting certain governments,” Patriarch Kirill said as he held the Friday mass at the major Moscow memorial to those who fought in World War II. “This is a fight against the fearsome foe that is currently not only spreading evil through the Middle East but also threatening the whole of mankind.”

He added: “Today, we call this evil terrorism.”

The Patriarch also said that terrorists were targeting innocent civilians to intimidate their opponents and to crush any resistance to their doctrines, causing a great number of casualties and human suffering.

“This is why the war on terrorism today is the holy war today. I pray to God that people all over the world understand this and stop dividing terrorists into good and bad ones as well as connecting the war on terror with their own goals, that are often non-declared yet strongly present on the political agenda,” the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church said.

He also told Orthodox believers to pray for the Russian military to remain faithful to the spiritual course that only allows the use of armed forces against evil, for justice and to save human lives.

In February this year, the chief foreign spokesman of the Russian Orthodox Church said in a press interview that global leaders should overcome political dissent and unite in fighting international terrorism as the challenge to mankind at large.

“We expect the message of peace to be heard. That instead of creating various anti-terrorist coalitions, alienated with deep-rooted contradictions and fraught with unpredictable consequences, there would be only one such alliance,” Metropolitan Hilarion said as he commented on the meeting between the Russian Orthodox Patriarch and Pope Francis in Havana, Cuba.

  1. Yes, this is a “Holy War” and a thank you to the Head of the Russian Orthodox Church. What a brave act, to
    call the terrible Insanity from Islam, a war. You have clarified the truth for the timid Western World& we are in your debt. The Christian men & Women, who fight these sub-humans, must be granted special Grace from God.

  2. He is absolutely correct, and I hope that all world leaders (Including Mr. Putin) will listen to this Christian leader when he say not to divide them into “good terrorists and bad terrorists”. The U.S. needs to stop backing the Saudis, Russia and China need to stop backing Iran. A Muslim is a Muslim, and if they are used as proxies, they will get around to biting us in our asses.

  3. Bunch of bloody hypocrites!
    Russian Church wars against Islam,
    Roman Church declares Islam allies.
    If any religious law continues spreading……we have no freedom of thought, speech and action!

  4. Growing up in the 60’s, when we (the USA) were so fearful of the USSR, it surprises me to now to be thanking God for Russia, who seems to be one of the few countries actually standing up for Christian values, and not succumbing to LGBT demands. Trump is right that, if Russia wants to help defeat radical Islam, we should welcome their help because the spread of this cancer, Islam, is the greatest threat to the world at present. Europe is already lost; hopefully, America doesn’t follow suit.

  5. The subversive Islamic takeover – known to adherents of that ideology as Hirja – has already taken over in Europe, where we see the first Muslim Mayor of London (!); the double decker buses emblazoned with Praise to Allah signs and the no-go zones throughout Great Britain proliferate. Angela Merkel has foolishly caved in to people with greater power than she could ever dream of and the rest of the EU leaders have – like sheep – followed. When history is written for this woeful period of human existence, it will show the cowards and the courageous – names like Gert Wilders, Tommy Robinson, Paul Weston, inter alia. It will also show the manipulators – the Open Borders billionaires – who with open hands pay sycophantic mercenaries to destroy what has taken thousands of years to build up.
    I hope the Russian Putin will listen to the Patriarch and amp up the war against all terrorists. However, he will find many world leaders, including the Roman Pope, against him. May God have mercy on us all!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
