As Christians, Muslims, Jews and non-believers, we cannot allow Europe to continue to fall under these blows of the madness of ISIS. We must now show solidarity with all victims, East and West, regardless of their religion or opinion. Now ISIS threatens

Less than a year later, Western Christians and the Church in Europe have been struck by Islamic terrorism. This blow has been particularly hard in France, Belgium, the UK, and now, Germany, too.

Therefore, this petition asks that church bells all over Europe sound on August 15, 2016 at 12noon.

The tolling of church bells will be in tribute to all victims of terrorism, especially, here, in Europe, and in solidarity with persecuted Christians still suffering in the Middle East.

But now, by attacking the clergy in their churches, ISIS threatens to "profane" Europe, as French President, Hollande, aptly said in regards to France and the murder of Fr Hamal.

To repair this desecration done to our Church and to our Continent, we want a sign of Christian unity.

Wendi - you are right - many of the victims of these events are "selected" because they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time - nothing to do with religious targeting in most cases. And many of the criminals have little in common with religious 'values' (in fact, Da'esh backed down from claiming any relationship with the Nice sociopathic Tunisian, despite trying to get "in the frame" at first - and the Orlando shooter also had little respect for Muslim values ...).

But the racist atmosphere at present provides a (sick) "valorisation" for psychopaths & sociopaths to act on their violent instincts ... Jo Cox was also victim of this Pandora's Box of endorsing violence that our politicians have opened in their strategies aimed at mobilising support ...

So yes - I hope that this petition will be acted upon.
And I'd like to see it expanded to include the Anglican Churches round the world, the Coptic Churches, the other Orthodox Churches (far from all Orthodox Churches are Greek Orthodox - ), the multiple "Chapels" of different backgrounds?
And why not an equivalent to bell-ringing from mosques, from synagogues, from temples, all around the world, too?

Why, Apolonia?

What about all the victims in Turkey, Iraq, Bangladesh, Egypt, Tunisia, etc.
Are you suggesting that the solidarity should only be towards Christian victims? That's not how I read the full petition, although it seemed to start that way ...

"all victims of terrorism" ... and even in Europe, the victims are not only Christians ...

Happy to sign, Apalonia. Yes all religious groups are suffering.
Unfortunately it seems that only one religion is causing the suffering.

Especially - not only - in Europe

I'd like to have seen "persecuted minorities" rather than ONLY "persecuted Christians" in the Middle East - it would be a more "Christian" attitude.

Why exclude ANY of those suffering ... wherever? Solidarity with ALL who are victims ...

Testament to what the hate message leads to - violence and bloodshed.

The persecution of Christians and Yazidis is religious bigotry at its worst and shames Islam.
But remember most victims of the Jihadists are fellow Muslims.

Happiness and strength endure only in the absence of hate. To hate alone is the road to disaster. To love is the road to strength. To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe." L. Ron Hubbard, What Is Greatness.

"In the wake of attacks on innocent people in France, Belgium, the UK and Germany, and, now, also on a member of the clergy in France, Europeans are searching for answers.

Therefore, dear pastor of souls, I am joining this petition, which asks that church bells all over Europe sound on August 15, 2016 at 12 o'clock, the feast of the Assumption (West)/Dormition (East). "

TYFS Apolonia. And I understand the petition, but incomplete in my humble opinion. totally agree with the vision provided by Evelyn. We are all one. One killed in Paris by terrorism, is as painful as death by terrorism in Turkey, Lebanon; Iraq; Indonesia or Argentina. In this type of petition, I have never signed, and I have not done. For all or for none. The world is unique, and we all live here and we must combine our efforts to support each other. I see the same in petition concerning mistreatment of animals or the environment, biased by the absurd frontiers of ignorance. It is supported be some first world countries and developed countries, and vilely cataloged to underdeveloped countries or developing world. For some, the words used are soft, for others the words used are such as: Barbaric. For some, the words used are soft, for others the words used are such as: Barbaric. Being the powerful and civilized countries who destroy us all. "The flapping of a butterfly in the Pacific Ocean produces the typhoon in the Indian Ocean"

Ignorant people always resort to violence. They don't have the capacity to think of solutions , since they were raised as slaves to do as they are told and not to think.
