In an interview that will air on the CBS news show 60 Minutes, the Chaldean Catholic archbishop of Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s Kurdistan region, said that war is the only way to protect Iraq’s Christians and stop the Islamic State.
“For me, Daesh [the Islamic State] is a cancer,” said Archbishop Bashar Warda. “So sometimes you take some hard measures, unfortunate measures, to deal and treat this cancer.”
