It was an important and historic Christian occasion. It was an opportunity to say what has not been said. “We shall continue to work for a Christian-Muslim unity in Syria so that the crisis could end and Syria would remain united,” said Patriarch John X Yazigi. This is a commendable patriotic spirit, yet the current crisis demands much more than that and since there is a Christian rejection of military intervention and an international tendency towards a political resolution, the patriarch could have sounded alarm bells for both parties as long as he does not want to take sides. He could have said that Syria’s unity is being jeopardized and that the conflict is starting to take its toll on the “joint civilization” that both Christians and Muslims had established together.
