And now for another episode of “Your Day in Religion of Peace Peacefulness.” Yes, they’re Muslims. As you’ll recall, last September, six Muslim men from North Africa, including Algeria plotted to kill the Pope in London, ironically during an “interfaith dialogue” meeting with Muslims about religious tolerance and respect. Now, six Moroccan men in Rome, tried to incite hatred against the Pope, whatever that means. Sounds like a sanitized way of describing Islamic terrorists who tried to kill him. Yup, they’re neither Catholic nor Jewish nor Hindu nor Wiccan. Shocker. And this is after decades of the Vatican and the Pope, current Pope included, pandering to Muslims and attacking Israel. Uh-huh, sounds like that’s working. Not.
Italian police on Friday arrested six Moroccan men suspected of inciting hatred against Pope Benedict XVI for converting a Muslim journalist in Italy to Catholicism.
Stefano Fonsi, head of Brescia police’s anti-terrorism squad in northern Italy, said the suspects allegedly banded together and met privately with the goal of stirring up religious hatred against non-Muslims, including the pope.
Investigators say they found literature exhorting Muslim immigrants against integrating into Italian society and saying the pope should be punished for having baptized the journalist during an Easter vigil ceremony in St. Peter’s Basilica.
The investigation grew out of security checks ahead of a pastoral visit by Benedict to Brescia in 2009, but authorities insisted that their probe revealed no plot against the pontiff or other terrorism aims. . . .
In 2008, Egyptian-born journalist Magdi Allam angered some Muslims by becoming a Catholic. After being baptized, he changed his name to Magdi Cristiano Allam. He had built a career in Italy as a newspaper commentator and author attacking Islamic extremism and supporting Israel.
Yeah, and we can’t have that, can we? Becoming Catholic AND supporting Israel. Two fatal sins.
