Pope Francis met with one of Iraq’s top shi’ite cleric, the Grand Ayatollah Ali al Sistani, in a historic meeting of Catholic and Shi’ite Muslim leadership. The two are expected to have discussed issues surrounding Iraq’s Christian minority. Following the meeting, al Sistani said that authorities have a role in protecting Christians in Iraq, and they should enjoy the same freedoms as Muslims.

Thumbs up for peace talks. Symbolic meetings like this between two respected religious leaders can have a positive impact. I'm glad for the people that live there.

Your authorizes cant even protect a majority of your Muslims who grt attacked by other Muslims for worshipping slightly different. You really think they have the reaources to protect Christians? I mean most Arab countries have openly said they hate Israel. Christianity is stemmed from Jewish faith. Jesus was a jew. So why would they even attempt to protect them when they cant even protect those who practice their own religion.

Comparing notes from centuries of using physical intimidation to force others to convert where spiritual intimidation can be used to control behavior.
