The Pope Was Right, Part II

And I'm sure that this will be a long running theme (from Al Reuters)

Al Qaeda militants in Iraq vowed war on "worshippers of the cross" and protesters burned a papal effigy on Monday over Pope Benedict's comments on Islam, while Western churchmen and statesmen tried to calm passions.

The statement by an umbrella group led by Iraq's branch of al Qaeda came after the Pontiff said on Sunday he was deeply sorry Muslims had been offended by his use of a medieval quotation on Islam and holy war.

"We tell the worshipper of the cross (the Pope) that you and the West will be defeated, as is the case in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya," said a Web statement by the Mujahideen Shura Council.

"We shall break the cross and spill the wine … God will (help) Muslims to conquer Rome … (May) God enable us to slit their throats, and make their money and descendants the bounty of the mujahideen," said the statement, posted on Sunday on an Internet site often used by al Qaeda and other militant groups.

Don't forget, the quote the Pope used that is causing such angst among the "peaceful" followers of Mohammed was:

“The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war,” the pope said. “He said, I quote, ‘Show me just what 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.’ ”

He was right on the money.

  1. Ogre says:

    One nun down, one Pope to go.

    Do you think that if the Muslim terrorists assasinate the Pope that THEN Christians and the West will realize that this IS a religious war?

    Me, neither.

  2. Some will, but the left would just say he got what he asked for.
