While condemning the publishing of the caricatures, Al-Hawzah reported that the followers of the Al-Sadr Movement “strongly condemned” the attacks which “targeted churches in Baghdad and Kirkuk” adding that “the Christians are our brothers and partners in this country.

Saad Hariri, the leading Sunni politician, condemned the attacks from Paris, saying that an attack on churches is an attack on Muslims.
What is the role of the church in all this?
