-Pope Francis: Muslim Terrorism Does Not Exist

by Dr. D ~ February 18th, 2017

Pope Francis

Pope Francis said yesterday that  “Muslim terrorism does not exist” but there are individuals in all religions who are involved in violence. He went on to imply that global warming was a far more serious problem than terrorism. Here’s the story from the UK Express:

POPE Francis has firmly denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, in a speech to a world meeting of populist movements yesterday.

In an impassioned defence of all faiths, the leader of the Catholic Church argued religion promotes peace and the danger of radicalisation exists in all religious beliefs.
He said:

   “Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist.

“No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent.

“The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode.”

“There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions – and with intolerant generalisations they become stronger because they feed on hate and xenophobia.”

“By confronting terror with love, we work for peace.”

Response: Pope Francis has some nice liberal PC thoughts about religion and terrorism but little of it is actually based upon reality and real world experience.

In his full speech he talks about how Jesus calls Christians to respond with love to all folks as neighbors as The Samaritan demonstrated. All great Biblical teaching but how is one called to respond when a particular group has openly dedicated themselves to try to kill you and yours, destroy your nation, and do away with Christianity and all other religions in the name of their holy book and religion?

Pope Francis implies that it is all caused by poverty but that has no basis in reality. Many of the terrorists to date have been among the wealthiest and best educated in the nations from whence they came.

Also, we are not talking about just some individual criminals when those perpetrators are organized around the guiding principles of their religion and claim that they are following the example of their prophet and scriptures. If they claim that they are committing terrorist acts in the name of Allah, the Quran, and Islam then they are exactly what they say they are-  Islamic terrorists.

No well meaning PC redefinitions by the Pope can change reality, it can only get a bunch of folks killed and put whole cities and nations in jeopardy.                *Top

    Here is a small sample of Quranic verses that justify violence against non-believers as a means of subjugating or converting them by force (note – there is not a single Christian verse that authorizes or commands violence against non-believers)

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

    Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. (the “joined companions with Allah” phrase refers to the Christian doctrine of the Trinity)

    Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah”

    Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”

    Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (the “People of the Book” are Christians and Jews)

    and for Hadith:
    Sahih Bukhari (52:65) – The Prophet said, ‘He who fights that Allah’s Word (Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah’s Cause.

    Sahih Muslim (1:30) – “The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”

    Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

    Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992: – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.

    I could go on and on and on……
