Pope wants Christians, Muslims to take anti-violence stance


(ANSA) - Vatican City, September 19 - Pope Benedict XVI said
on Wednesday that Muslims and Christians should join forces to
stop violence and war.
"It seems to me that the time has come for Christians and
Muslims to express together a determined stance against violence
and war," the pontiff said at his weekly general audience.
His comments follow a wave of violence in the Muslim world
over an American-produced film that allegedly ridicules Islam's
Prophet Mohammed.
Benedict last week visited Lebanon, which borders Syria,
where a bloody civil war is taking place between opposition
groups and government forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.
The pope said "Muslims welcomed me with sincere respect and
consideration" during his trip to Lebanon, where he saw "clear,
strong signs of dialogue".
