Pope Francis denies link between Islam and terrorism

It appears to me that Pope Francis is either completely detached from reality, or is working on his Ph.D. in Diplomatic Hypocrisy. The website of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) reported last week on a meeting at the Vatican between the Holy (?) Father and the organization's Secretary-General, Dr Yousef bin Ahmed Al Othaimeen. (If the mountain won't come to Mohammed...)

"Travellin' along, singin' a song, siiiide by siiiide!"

The Pope "appreciated" the OIC's position on several matters, the report says, including terrorism, which the OIC is shocked, shocked that the world blames on Islamic terrorists. The Pope doesn't believe that, and "stressed that there is no link between Islam and terrorism."

Right. Let's look at a couple of items from history... recent history.

Item: At the end of January, at least 95 people were killed and about 163 wounded after a powerful explosion rocked the city centre of Kabul, the capital of Armpitistan. Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman and devout Muslim, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Item: In the first week of this month, at least one person was killed and 22 others wounded in a suicide bombing in Kabul. Al Jazeera, who should know, said the Afghan capital has seen a spate of deadly attacks carried out by the Taliban and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS), terrorist groups which are not Jewish, not Christian, but... errr... the other "faith community".

Well, that's enough Islamic terrorist attacks to make the point. For the latest list of killings, too long to repost here, click on "List of Killings in the Name of Islam: Last 30 Days", published by TheReligionOfPeace (TROP... French for "too much"!).

These are facts, as reported by reliable sources and seen in horrifying videos which appear on your screens almost every week. Walt wonders if Pope Francis ever watches or reads the news. Or does he just believe what he hears from his advisors, like Cardinal Pietro Parolin, aka Peter the Roman, who stood by the Pope as he welcomed Dr Al Othaimeen, and participated in discussions of "cooperation and importance of dialogue between both sides and continuous contact." Just coincidence? I think not!
