Pope Francis: Muslim Terrorism is the West’s Fault

Pope Francis kisses the foot of a man during the foot-washing ritual at the Castelnuovo di Porto refugees center, some 30km (18, 6 miles) from Rome, Thursday, March 24, 2016. The pontiff washed and kissed the feet of Muslim, Orthodox, Hindu and Catholic refugees Thursday, declaring them children of the same God, in a gesture of welcome and brotherhood at a time when anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment has spiked following the Brussels attacks.

This Pope never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity or proselytize for Islam no matter how many millions of murdered Christians lay before him.

The Pope is the gift that keeps on giving — to Islamic supremacists.

Blaming the global jihad war on ‘Iraq’ negates the half a billion victims of  jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements over the past 1,400 years.

“Pope Francis: Muslim Terrorism is the West’s Fault,” By Daniel Greenfield, FPM, May 18, 2016:

Is anything ever the fault of Muslims? Not to the left. Muslims have no agency. They just respond to what we do.

Q: The fear of accepting migrants is partly based on a fear of Islam. In your view, is the fear that this religion sparks in Europe justified?

Pope Francis: Today, I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam. It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.

In the face of Islamic terrorism, it would therefore be better to question ourselves about the way in an overly Western model of democracy has been exported to countries such as Iraq, where a strong government previously existed. Or in Libya, where a tribal structure exists. We cannot advance without taking these cultures into account. As a Libyan said recently, “We used to have one Gaddafi, now we have fifty.”

Ultimately, co-existence between Christians and Muslims is still possible. I come from a country where they co-habit on good terms. Muslims come to venerate the Virgin Mary and St George. Similarly, they tell me that for the Jubilee Year Muslims in one African country formed a long queue at the cathedral to enter through the holy door and pray to the Virgin Mary. In Central Africa, before the war, Christians and Muslims used to live together and must learn to do so again. Lebanon also shows that this is possible.

Lebanon? Is that really the example that the Pope wants to use of peaceful co-existence between Christians and Muslims? It was either that or Iraq. Meanwhile in Pope Francis’ country, Muslims carried out the worst terrorist attack in the region. I believe the third worst in the continent.

But let’s get back to that second paragraph.

Yes, the Libyan intervention was a disaster. I’ve spoken out quite a bit about it. But let’s also not forget that Gaddafi had been sponsoring terrorist attacks long before it. And not in response to “Western democracy”.

Gaddafi’s Lockerbie bombing killed two people from the Pope’s native Argentina. Which means he ought to remember it.

Muslim terrorism is active, not reactive. It has typical colonialist goals. It is part of a history of Jihad that dates back over a thousand years. ISIS is one manifestation of Islamic terror, but most of the worst terror attacks
