Chaldean Patriarch Delly Is Hopeful

Today, Iraqis received news that brought them some hope. The Interior and Defence posts has been filled, and Al-Zarqawi is dead. I'm happy that Iraqis have a functional government. I'm also relieved that Al-Zarqawi is gone for good.

Chaldean Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly had this to say:

Baghdad, Jun. 08 (AsiaNews) - News that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead and that the last posts in the Iraqi ruling cabinet have been filled have given Chaldean Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly “hope that violence may come to an end,” the AsiaNews service reports.
“There is great hope that the violence that is torturing us might end," said the Chaldean patriarch, who is the leader of Iraq's largest Christian community. He nevertheless expressed regret that the hope came at the expense of a human life. "Murdering one another for personal reasons cannot bring anything good," said Patriarch Emmanuel. "Loving, not killing one another: this is the path to follow.”


Let's hope for the best.
