Italy takes al Qaeda’s Pope threat seriously-agency

ROME, March 20 (Reuters) – Italian security officials are treating Osama bin Laden’s new accusations against Pope Benedict as a serious threat, Ansa news agency said on Thursday, quoting a source at the interior ministry’s anti-terrorism unit.

An interior ministry spokesman said security officials will meet on Friday to examine the Al Qaeda leader’s taped message, in which he said offending cartoons of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad were part of a “new crusade” involving Pope Benedict.

Bin Laden’s threat uncovers Jihadist message for Europe

By Walid Phares

In an audiotape posted on Internet, Osama Bin Laden threatened Europe with punishment because of its “negligence in spite of the opportunity presented to take the necessary measures” to stop the republishing of the Danish cartoons. It also menaced the Vatican with retribution for an alleged role in incitement “against religion.” This al Qaeda warning would have been normal in Salafi Jihad logic.

Vatican denies bin Laden charge that Pope is leading “new Crusade,” but still worried

And they are worried with good reason. The Pope certainly isn’t leading a new Crusade, but Rome is nevertheless the apple of the jihadist eye. One of the most influential Muslim clerics in the world, Sheikh al-Qaradawi, said this a few years ago:

The friends of the Prophet heard that two cities would be conquered by Islam, Romiyya and Constantinople, and the Prophet said that ‘Hirqil [i.e. Constantinople] would be conquered first.’ Romiyya is Rome, the capital of Italy, and Constantinople was the capital of the state of Byzantine Rome, which today is Istanbul. He said that Hirqil which is Constantinople, would be conquered first and this is what happened…All right, Constantinople was conquered, and the second part of the prophecy remains, that is, the conquest of Romiyya. This means that Islam will return to Europe. Islam entered Europe twice and left it… Perhaps the next conquest, Allah willing, will be by means of preaching and ideology. The conquest need not necessarily be by the sword… [The conquest of Mecca] was not by the sword or by war, but by a [Hudabiyya] treaty, and by peace…
Perhaps we will conquer these lands without armies.

Catholics Want to Reclaim St. Paul’s Birthplace

By Peter Wensierski/Spiegel Online


Pope Benedict XVI

The Catholic Church is pushing for the construction of a Christian meeting center at the birthplace of the Apostle Paul in Turkey. German bishops are demanding tolerance for Christians in Turkey in exchange for their support for mosques in Germany.

* Good luck with that. More…


Saudis: No churches here unless Pope accepts Muhammad as a prophet

Which would make him a Muslim, and the churches mosques. But in their eyes, it would simply make him one of the authentic Christians as envisioned in the Qur’an — one who rejects the divinity and redemption of Christ, and reveres him along with Muhammad as one of the prophets.

* Saudis say they’re going to retrain 40,000 imams who Misunderstand Islam


“But critics are sceptical about whether such initiatives would work as long as the powerful, and ultraconservative, religious establishment in Saudi Arabia continues to exert enormous influence over society.” Uh huh.

How did 40,000 clerics — 40,000 — get The Religion of Peaceâ„¢ so drastically wrong in the first place?

In Rome´s Main Mosque, One Imam Is Calling for Jihad


Incendiary sermons are being preached to the Muslims in the pope´s diocese. And this is no isolated case – the mosques are in the hands of Islamic radicals

* Islamic radicals? Are there any others? 

“O Allah, grant victory to the Islamic fighters in Palestine, Chechnya, and elsewhere in the world! O Allah, destroy the homes of the enemies of Islam! O Allah, help us to annihilate the enemies of Islam! O Allah, make firm everywhere the voice of the nation of Islam!”

  1. * … Pope and all the Christian churches recognise the prophet Mohammed.

    If the Pope and all the Christian churches recognise Mo as being anything but
    one of the false christs and false prophets that Jesus Christ warned would
    appear & seek to deceive, Earth is in big trouble … eg Mark 13:22 / Matthew 24:24:

    “False messiahs and false prophets will appear. They will work spectacular, miraculous
    signs and do wonderful things to deceive, if possible, even those whom God has chosen.”

  2. Why is the Vatican bothering to answer this BS? Bin Loser is more and more irrelevant every day despite the crap he spews all the time. He’s become a pipsqueak and knows it and this kills him more than anything else.

  3. >>”The friends of the Prophet heard that two cities would be conquered by Islam, Romiyya and Constantinople, and the Prophet said that ‘Hirqil [i.e. Constantinople] would be conquered first.’


  4. >>Vatican denies bin Laden charge that Pope is leading “new Crusade,


  5. Why doesn’t some right-thinking person who has access to Islamic websites blog the following question:

    “Why is the House of Saud waging jihad against Muslims? Saudi Arabian ‘volunteers’ are streaming into Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan; they go to local markets and plant car-bombs or detonate suicide belts, obviously targeting Muslim citizens of those countries (they pretend they are targeting “occupiers”, then they set their bombs off where foreigners do not go!). Why does the country with the two holiest sites of Islam, which should be most observant of the true spirit of Islam, permit such un-Islamic behavior? They offer no condemnation of these actions, no apology to the families of the killed and injured; nor do they make any apparent attempt to curb these wandering murderers-of-believers who bring mischief and mayhem throughout the lands of the faithful. What is wrong in Saudi Arabia? Why are they teaching evil and calling it ‘true Islam’? ”

    I keep reading that so many of the “insurgents” in the middle east hotspots are Saudis. It would be nice if we could get the truth out there – that the “Crusaders” attacking the “peaceful Muslim civilians” are other Muslims. Osama bin Laden, a Saudi, threatens Muslims as much as he threatens Infidels.

  6. Hell no! The truth about this insidious cult is reaching critical mass so the flunky Saudi barbarians go into damage control and announce they’re retraining 40,000 clerics, oh the irony…
