Islamic Extremist Calls For Pope’s Death

Apologies are not enough for to appease the hearts of Islamic extremists. Apparantly nothing is. Burning down churches wasn’t enough. Martyring a nun by shooting her in the back was not enough. No, for some the bloodlust can not be quenched without making the Pope into a martyr as well.

A notorious Muslim extremist told a demonstration in London yesterday that the Pope should face execution.

Anjem Choudary said those who insulted Islam would be “subject to capital punishment”.

His remarks came during a protest outside Westminster Cathedral on a day that worldwide anger among Muslim hardliners towards Pope Benedict XVI appeared to deepen.

The irony of the reaction by the Islamic extremist mobs needs not be ignored. I’m not sure whether or not the Pope deliberately through down the guantlet but his words did turn out to be prophetic and the truth. I really don’t see any reason why the pope should apologize and retreat. The only thing that should be regretted is that the central theme of his speech, that of reason and peaceful dialogue, was completely and willfully ignored. In the Islamic extremist animal mind, jihad was the “reasonable” answer.

An Iraqi militant group led by al Qaeda vowed a war against the “worshippers of the cross” in response to a recent speech by Pope Benedict on Islam that sparked anger across the Muslim world.

“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 an Internet statement by the Mujahideen Shura Council, an umbrella group led by Iraq’s branch of al Qaeda.

“We shall break the cross and spill the wine. … God will (help) Muslims to conquer Rome. … God enable us to slit their throats, and make their money and descendants the bounty of the mujahideen,” said the statement.

Hmmm. Doesn’t seem like they are interested in dialouge. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one that noticed the irony in all of this.

THE Archbishop of Sydney has drawn a link between Islamists and violence, a strident attempt to defend the Pope just as the pontiff tries to hose down Muslim anger around the world.

Cardinal George Pell says “the violent reactions in many parts of the Islamic world” to a speech by Pope Benedict justified one of the main fears expressed by the world’s Catholic leader.

“They showed the link for many Islamists between religion and violence, their refusal to respond to criticism with rational arguments, but only with demonstrations, threats and actual violence,” Cardinal Pell said in a statement yesterday.

  1. Yes, religion of peace, indeed. Perhaps this will wake up those who think we should ‘give peace a chance.’ Good grief – they’re peaceful as long as you agree with them. Sounds like the profile for an abuser. All is well as long as they rule completely.

    I’m hoping the Pope not only doesn’t apologize but repeats the speech again and again. It is one we need to hear and support. What was that about a self-fulfilling prophecy? Irony doesn’t begin to describe this hideous reaction.
