War never solution, but a defeat says Pope

Always risk of conflict in name of sacred principles tells Jews

(ANSA) - ROME, MAY 30 - War is never the solution to issues, but is always a defeat, Pope Francis told the Jewish organization B'nai B'rith International at an audience Monday.
    "In all religious traditions, as in all human societies, there is always the risk of bearing grudges and fuelling disputes against others and to do so in the name of absolute and even sacred principles," said Francis.
    "It is the deceitful temptation of violence, of evil nestling in the heart, it is the deceit according to which you can solve disputes violence and war.
    "But violence always begets more violence.
    "Arms produce death and war is never the solution to a problem, but a defeat". (ANSA).
