Church of Albania: “Eye for an eye” does not mean “beheading”

Following a phone conversation between His Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios of Albania and His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem, the Autocephalous Church of Albania made an announcement saying the it sympathised with the suffering of the peoples of the wider region.

“The archaic law of retribution ‘eye for an eye’ or ‘tit-for-tat’ not only defines the right but also the limits of retaliation: It is ‘Eye for an eye’ means ‘eye for and eye’ and not ‘beheading’,” the Church of Albania stressed.

“An immediate cease-fire and the start of a serious dialogue remains our constant appeal and prayer,” they wished.
