#CODED-ish::: Pope's message to terrorists

11:26 PM

Apparently reacting to the recent spate of terrorism, the Pope described the menace as "absurd contradiction" between the international community's calls for peace, the proliferation of the global arms trade and the lack of attention to the suffering of refugees.

"Everyone talks about peace, everyone says they want it but unfortunately the proliferation of all types of arms is leading us in the opposite direction," Francis told a group of new ambassadors to the Holy See.

"It would be an absurd contradiction to talk about peace, negotiate peace and at the same time promote or allow the arms trade," he said at the Vatican ceremony.

While commenting on the issue of refugees, after the death of 17 asylum-seekers in a shipwreck near Libya on Monday, the pope said: "We can't just chase after emergencies.

"It is time to confront this issue in a serious and responsible way with a political perspective.

"In a way it is cynical to proclaim human rights and at the same time ignore or fail to care for the men and women forced to leave their homelands who die trying or do not receive international solidarity.
