After coming under heavy fire by Muslims for quoting a 14th century leader during a speech, Pope Benedict met with Muslim leaders and offered up his apologies for offending the tender sensibilities of Muslim crybabies, who proved the quote correct nonetheless, with riots and murders of Catholics.
During his meeting, the Pope spoke of the need for "authentic dialogue" between the two faiths, and espoused his "esteem and profound respect" for Muslims.
"[We must] guard against all forms of intolerance and oppose all manifestations of violence," said the Holy See.
End of discussion, right? Not if you are an intolerant and bloodthirsty Muslim from the "religion of peace!"
Hamas' state run television aired a sermon calling the Pope "arrogant," "stupid," and "criminal," and "will be judged by Allah" on the day "when eyes will stare in terror."
Very tolerant and reasonable, huh? Very , very peaceful and understanding.
Here is some of the "sermon."
"To this arrogant Pope, criminal and arrogant, this message is from Allah the Elevated and the Exalted, as it was said: 'Think not that Allah is unaware of what the wicked do. He but gives them a respite until a day when eyes will stare (in terror),'" stated Gaza preacher Osama Al-Mazini in a sermon broadcast by the official television station of Abbas' Fatah party.
"For this ignorant and stupid pope, who has no one to attack besides Islam and the prophet [Muhammad] ... [the pope] characterized Islam as a cruel religion and characterized Muhammad, may the Creator have mercy on him and protect him, as a cruel man, spilling blood, who strove to kill," Al-Mazini said.
Nice, don'tcha think? Here are some more reactions by the "religion of peace" that is Islam, courtesy of World Net Daily, emphasis mine.
Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turk who tried to kill Pope John Paul II in 1981, warned Benedict not to travel to Turkey, stating his life would be at risk.
That's no surprise. Muslims have already shot an innocent nun in the back while she was praying. (Can you imagine the outrage had a Catholic shot a Muslim prostrated over his prayer rug?) They also fire-bombed several churches.
In an interview with WND last week, a prominent Gaza preacher called for holy war against the pope. He declared the "green flag of Muhammad" would soon be raised over the Vatican.
TOTALLY peaceful. Uh-huh.
"We did not need the words of the pope in order to understand that this is a Crusader war against Islam and it is our holy duty to fight all those who support the pope, who follow him and who did not condemn what this small racist had to say," said Abu Saqer, speaking to WND from the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis.
So you had already made up your mind to kill the kaffir? I can't say that I'm surprised. Oh, and can you all PLEASE stop it with that Crusader stuff? That was a long, long time ago; it's time to let all of that GO.
You will also notice the race card being played...
"The day will soon come when the green flag of La Illah Illah Allah (There is no god but Allah) and Muhammad Rasul Allah (Muhammad is the prophet of Allah) will be raised upon the Vatican and all around the world and on the fortresses of those who want to destroy Islam, because they know that this religion obliges them to face the truth that Islam is Allah's favorite religion. And until they join Islam, hell is their last station," Abu Saqer said.
Forceful conversions? Damnation? The Vatican conquered?
Keep saying it to yourself until you believe the taquiyya: Religion of peace, religion of peace, religion of peace...
Oh, and what is Allah's second favorite religion, I wonder? *snicker*
Abu Saqer said he rejected the pope's stated apologies.
"He did not apologize. He said everything but an apology, which proves these are diplomatic acts and not a feeling of being sorry."
Nothing would ever please these people, so I don't know why the Pope even bothered.
Abu Saqer claimed he did not condone violence. He blamed the pope for recent anti-Christian attacks in the Palestinian territories."We are deeply sorry for these acts that we condemn," he said. "But I am sorry that this little racist did not think of the consequences upon the Christians in the Arab world when he insulted our prophet. It is an open war: the Muslims against all the others."
Oh, so it's OUR fault that we're FORCING you to kill us... Let's not forget, ladies and gentlemen, that Islam is the religion where, under Sharia law, a woman is at fault should she be violently raped...
"Yeah, we don't condone rape, but your burqa was a half an inch too short, and you should've thought about that before you left the house. Now get ready for your stoning."
"It is an open war: the Muslims against all others." Can their intentions be made any more plain?
Asked to respond directly to Paleologus' observations about Muhammad and Islam, Abu Saqer replied, "About your stupid question (He's a little confrontational, isn't he?) about our contribution to civilization, did not you read about who were the pioneers in medicine, in mathematics, in astronomy? Did not you hear about Averroes and others?
What others, exactly? And do you have anything more recent than Ibn Rushd, who lived from 1126-1198... Like, say, anything from the past two hundred years or so? Also, writing mainly analytical critiques of Aristotle's works isn't exactly contributing anything new to the world, per se.
"I am not reading poetry, I am saying the truth. Islam, it is not the source of violence. Who is occupying by force and violence Iraq and Afghanistan? Who is occupying Palestine? Who occupied for years the black people and turned them into slaves while one of the first leaders of Islam was the black Bilal Ibn Rabah?"
I find this strategy of appealing to African-American people, (who are of course tdescendantsnts of slaves) interesting, considering the high numbers of jailhouse conversions to Islam by blacks here in America.
Of course, the black Africans in Darfur and other areas who are being raped and slaughtered wholesale by racists Muslims who hate black people probably don't feel quite as accepted and embraced. It is also a commonly held belief amongst Arab Muslims that the black Muslim is inferior to them, as they cannot grow the same sort of long beard that Mohammed had...(As well as Asians and whites.)
Continued Abu Saqer: "Violence is a result of lack of faith. See the Western society and culture. See what free sex brings to your Western world and then see the family cell in Islam. Even our problems in Islam come when some parts of the Islamic population want to imitate your way of life."
Oh, it's our fault again, never, ever the fault of the Muslim purveyors of death and mayhem. Not to mention that violence is a staple of Sharia law! Cutting off hands and feet, stoning... Need I go on?
The Gaza preacher said the pope and the Christian world are "panicking" because they realize "who is winning."
"See how Islam is progressing and gaining more and more members and see the moral crisis in the West," he said. "See today the support of Islam in the Arab and Muslim world and how Islam is gaining more and more adherents in Europe and even in the United States and you understand that Islam is the future and that this dwarf pope was wrong. But I can sympathize with him. He is frustrated because he understands where things are heading."
Indeed, this little pustule on humanity is right about one thing... As it stands now, they will win. Their use of legal taqiyya in the West, coupled with constaacquiescinging by the PC movement will destroy us. We must not allow our leaders to move us quietly into dhimmitude!
WE MUST WAKE UP AND DEFEAT THIS THREAT!
I think that, from now on, every time I see one of those lame Mulim "The West are the REAL Nazi-esque cartoons, I will counter with this:
After all of the violence, 9-11, the cartoon riots, the homicide bombings, the threats, ect, ect, I firmly believe that Manuel II Paleologus was 100% correct in his assessment of Islam all of those centuries ago:
"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."
Pocket Full Of Mumbles has an excellent essay on just how much tolerance we should have for this insanity!
