For a long time, I have not wanted to meet IS as a religious enemy. I still do not, my dream, together with Barack, has been to create a platform for all three monotheistic religions.

But the attack on a catholic priest in France has changed this.

We need to acknowledge, that IS targets religious targets. As they target many other things, among them democratic targets.

But to ignore a religious target out of strategic considerations, is not right.

IS hates Christians, as they hate other religious minorities.

The fight we are fighting is not only a fight for democracy, it is also a fight to protect religious minorities, and vulnerable religious leaders. As the rev. Jacques Hamel.

It is a fight for common decency, for a world where we can live together in peace, side by side.

In this world the IS strategy to kill innocent spiritual servants is wrong.

Christians need to wake up, and defend themselves.

G-d bless the will to be vigilant and yet to seek peace as the aim.
