CAIRO – 23 June 2017: Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark expressed on Thursday his resentment at the revolutions that took place in a number of Arab countries in the past few years.

Pope Tawadros elaborated that the Arab Spring is a great lie because it came in chaos, ruin, blood and violence. "It is not a spring, it is a big lie, a trick that the whole world is following," said Pope Tawadros in an exclusive interview with ON Live channel on Thursday.

Pope Tawadros recounted that the only solution to overcome this critical situation is to rely mainly on education and culture. ‘’I am a pharmacist, I learned how to manufacture blood from poison, and the Egyptian education suffers from a multi-faceted crisis and needs huge efforts to improve it,’’ he added.
