Pope Benedict XVI called on Christians and others touched by his words to mobilize against the widening warfare in the Middle East. Benedict pressed his campaign for a rapid peaceful solution to the fighting between Israel and Hizbullah in Lebanon during an interview Saturday with German media to be broadcast in Germany on Aug. 13. "Naturally, the Holy See does not want any political power," Benedict said during the interview Saturday morning. "But we want to appeal to Christians and to all those who feel in some way touched by the words of the Holy See so that all the forces which recognize that war is the worst solution for everybody are mobilized." War "doesn't bring any good for anybody, not even for the apparent victors," Benedict said. "We know that well in Europe, following two World Wars."
