Lebanese Melkite Archbishop Gregoire Haddad on Martyrdom

Found on MEMRI TV. Really interesting if you want to hear about the theological/political discussions in Lebanon.

"According to my faith, anything that harms Man harms the faith and harms God. This means that the path of martyrdom-seeking is itself wrong, even if it is for the liberation of Lebanon from the Israelis, or for the liberation of Palestine and the Palestinians. What I mean is that one day, everybody must realize that the goal may be very lofty, but if the means we used to reach it harm human beings, their honor and lives, this is wrong. The end does not justify the means."

-Archbishop Haddad
