Pope gets another invite to embrace Islam

Not for  the first time. The pope gets these ‘invitations’ all the time:

Relax: Imam meets Pope, says “Islam is a religion of peace that loves life and condemns any act in the name of religion against the very principles of the religion”

“Say (O Muhammad): O ye who are Jews! If ye claim that ye are favoured of Allah apart from (all) mankind, then long for death if ye are truthful.” — Qur’an 62:6

“The Americans love Pepsi-Cola, we love death.” – Afghan jihadist Maulana Inyadullah

“We love death more than you love life!” – New York jihadist Adis Medunjanin

“Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Qur’anic] psalms and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.” — Ayatollah Khomeini

“Pope Meets With Holy Land Rabbi, Imam, Druse,” by Nicole Winfield for the Associated Press, November 10:

First of all you gotta learn to speak Islamic. Jihad  Watch readers are doing a good job at translating, here….

Pope says states have a right to defend their borders…

VATICAN CITY — States must treat migrants with dignity but have the right to regulate immigration and defend their borders, Pope Benedict XVI said on Tuesday. (NYT)

He didn’t mention Israel.

But some  Bishops did:

What happened to Archbishop Cyril and Patriarch Emmanuel?

Recently two prominent Eastern Catholic bishops have made statements that are not only curious and counter-factual, but apparently contradictory of their earlier statements, or at least not obviously emanating from the same point of view as those earlier remarks. Both cases are indicative of a larger phenomenon regarding the difficulties that Christians in Islamic countries and non-Muslims in Muslim countries in general face.

Five Muslims Arrested in Plot to Assassinate the Pope UPDATE: Six Muslim Street Cleaners Arrested

They no doubt want to kill him because of his Regensburg address, in which he quoted the 14th-century Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Paleologos: “He said, I quote, `Show me just what (Islamic Prophet) Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.'” And so to prove that Muhammad didn’t bring what was evil and inhuman, they want to murder the Pope.

Update:

Benedict went ahead with a busy day Saturday, his third in Britain, as six men arrested in an alleged terror attempt against him remained in police custody. Police staged a pre-dawn raid Friday on a garbage depot and arrested five street cleaners; a sixth person was arrested later in the day.

Honest Ibe Blames Pope For "Misconceptions About Islam… Rhetoric Unhelpful…."

“Misconceptions” anyone?

“Islamic law has had great respect for Christians and that has been demonstrated throughout history,” he said. “The Prophet (Mohammad) himself had good relations with Christians.”

For “misconceptions” consult Groucho Marx:

Pope condemns capitalism’s ‘failures’

By Guy Dinmore in Rome

The pontiff’s call for stronger government regulation was made in his third and eagerly awaited encyclical, Charity in Truth, which the Vatican chose to issue on the eve of the G8 summit of rich nations being held in Italy.

Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday condemned the “grave deviations and failures” of capitalism exposed by the financial crisis and issued a strong call for a “true world political authority” to oversee a return to ethics in the global economy.

Pope Walks Out as Sheikh Tamimi Blasts Israel at "Interfaith Meeting…"

Matthew Wagner , THE JERUSALEM POST

A leading Palestinian cleric commandeered an evening devoted to interfaith dialogue with Pope Benedict XVI on Monday to rant against Israel for “killing Gaza’s children,” “bulldozing Palestinian homes” and “destroying mosques.”

  • Debbie Schlussel ain’t buying any:   pardon me if I don’t buy the Vatican’s claim they didn’t know Tamimi would be part of the agenda. And pardon me if I think it’s nauseating that the Pope chose to sit by as this occurred, without walking out on this while it was occurring. And pardon me if I think it’s disgusting he shook the guy’s hand on the way out–the hand of a well-known anti-Semite and pan-terrorist inciter.
  • What good does it do that he walked out after? Big deal. More>>

visitofarungandhi03In an impromptu speech, delivered in Arabic at the Notre Dame Pontifical Institute in Jerusalem, Sheikh Tayseer Tamimi, chief Islamic judge in the Palestinian Authority, launched a 10-minute tirade against the State of Israel for confiscating Palestinians’ land and carrying out war crimes against the residents of Gaza.

He also called for the immediate return of all Palestinian refugees, and called on Christians and Muslims to unite against Israel.

Tamimi invoked the name of Saladin, the Muslim sultan who recaptured Jerusalem from the Crusaders in 1187. Tamimi said that unlike Israel, Saladin upheld the religious freedoms of all faiths.

* These guys lie even when they pray…

* Incidentally, this is the same Tamimi who once said: “The Jews are destined to be persecuted, humiliated, and tortured forever, and it is a Muslim duty to see to it that they reap their due. No petty arguments must be allowed to divide us. Where Hitler failed, we must succeed.”

So much for “interreligious dialogue” …

Catholic Church is falling into a Muslim trap, according to convert baptised by the Pope

 

Update: the reason why apostates of Islam are seen as traitors who must be killed before they spill the beans:

The ex-Muslim journalist baptised by Pope Benedict XVI this year has warned the pontiff that Catholic dialogue with Muslims is based on naive misconceptions about the “peaceful” nature of Islam.

Magdi Allam, whom Benedict baptised in St Peter’s this Easter, has told the Pope that Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, the Vatican’s head of inter-religious dialogue, was wrong to claim this year that Islam “promotes peace” and that Islamist extremists betray their faith.

Muslim convert to Catholicism tells pope Islam is not inherently good

Convert Magdi Allam

* Truth has become “opinion”, good is evil, right is wrong and a “religion cannot be inherently bad”, right? RIGHT?

By Cindy Wooden
Catholic News Service

VATICAN CITY (CNS) — The Muslim-born journalist baptized by Pope Benedict XVI at Easter asked the pope to tell his top aide for relations with Muslims that Islam is not an intrinsically good religion and that Islamic terrorism is not the result of a minority gone astray.
