Patriarch of Antioch and All the East for the Melkite Greek Catholic Church  "Gregory III Laham" stressed that terrorism the region is facing doesn't differentiate between Moslems or Christians, as it aims at dismembering it and undermining its national unity.

In an interview with the Egyptian "al-Ahram" Newspaper on the sidelines of his visit to Egypt for celebrating Christmas, Patriarch Laham called upon the Western countries that support terrorism in Syria, Egypt, Iraq and others to keep their hand off the Arab countries and bring them peace rather than weapons.

He called on the Western and European states to support Geneva-2 Conference instead of supporting terrorists in Syria through supplying them with weapons, expressing wishes that peace would prevail in Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq and Palestine by next year.

Laham considered what is going on in the Arab countries under the title of 'the Arab Spring" as negative, bringing problems and challenges rather than democracy, liberty, justice or promotion of children and women rights.
