Oh Dear: Pope Francis Defended Islam After Benedict’s Regensburg Speech

March 21, 2013
(Pederasts no problem!)
Islam versus Europe: 

In 2005, then Pope Benedict quoted from an obscure medieval text which declared that the Prophet Mohammed, founder of the Islamic faith, was “evil and inhuman”, enraging the Muslim population and causing attacks on churches throughout the world before an apology was issued.

Reacting within days to the statements, speaking through a spokesman to Newsweek Argentina, then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio declared his “unhappiness” with the statements, made at the University of Regensburg in Germany, and encouraged many of his subordinates with the Church to do the same.

“Pope Benedict’s statement don’t reflect my own opinions”, the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires declared. “These statements will serve to destroy in 20 seconds the careful construction of a relationship with Islam that Pope John Paul II built over the last twenty years”.

The Vatican reacted quickly, removing one subordinate, Joaquín Piña the Archbishop of Puerto Iguazú from his post within four days of his making similar statements to the Argentine national media, sending a clear statement to Cardinal Bergoglio that he would be next should he choose to persist.

Reacting to the threats from Rome, Cardinal Bergoglio cancelled his plans to fly to Rome, choosing to boycott the second synod that Pope Benedict had called during his tenure as pontiff.

Pope Francis elected leader of Catholic Church: as it happened 14 Mar 2013
“The only thing that didn’t happen to Bergoglio was being removed from his post”, wrote investigative journalist Horacio Verbitsky in his column in left-wing daily newspaper Página/24. “The Vatican was very quick to react.”

Cristina Kirchner, the Argentina president, stated at the time that such diatribes were “dangerous for everyone”.

Rome: Brawl breaks out between Jews, pro-Palestinians after #GiladShalit rally

June 27, 2010

A young woman was lightly injured in a brawl that broke out between Jews and Israelis and pro-Palestinian members of the Free Gaza movement after a rally at the Coliseum in Rome for the release of captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

The Jewish-Israeli group was making its way back from the rally when it encountered the pro-Palestinian group that had held a counter-protest at the Shalit event. An argument broke out between the two groups and deteriorated into physical violence. The injured woman was evacuated to the hospital. It is unclear which group she belongs to. (AFP)

Abu Nidal

March 2, 2010

Communist Poland sheltered and armed Palestinian extremists in the 1980s, including the founder of Fatah-Revolutionary Council and terrorist mastermind Abu Nidal.
“They had dirty hands,” General Czeslaw Kiszczak, who served as interior minister in the 1980s, told Poland’s TVN commercial television station late on Monday..

“We closed our eyes to the fact that they would come to Poland to rest and for medical attention after attacks and to train for new ones,” said Kiszczak, who was also the right hand of Poland’s then leader, General Wojciech Jaruzelski.
According to Kiszczak, Poland also sold them arms.
“It was in the Polish interest to sell them the largest possible quantity of arms,”
Kiszczak said in a TVN program focused on finding traces of Abu Nidal’s activities in Poland.
While he was wanted across the globe as the mastermind behind various attacks, Sabri al-Banna, known under the alias Abu Nidal, managed a company in Poland in the 1980s identified as SAS by the TVN report.

Abu Nidal died in Iraq in August 2002.

Part of the secular, left-wing, Palestinian rejectionist front, so called because they reject proposals for a peaceful settlement with Israel, the ANO was formed after a split in 1974 between Abu Nidal and Yasser Arafat‘s Fatah faction within the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Setting himself up as a freelance contractor, Abu Nidal is believed to have ordered attacks in 20 countries, killing or injuring over 900 people. The group’s most notorious attacks were on the El Al ticket counters at Rome and Vienna airports in December 1985, when Arab gunmen high on amphetamines opened fire on passengers in simultaneous shootings, killing 18 and wounding 120. Patrick Seale, Abu Nidal’s biographer, wrote of the attacks that their “random cruelty marked them as typical Abu Nidal operations”.
Abu Nidal died of between one and four gunshot wounds in Baghdad in August 2002. Palestinian sources believe he was killed on the orders of Saddam Hussein, but the Iraqi government insisted he had committed suicide. The Guardian wrote on the news of his death: “He was the patriot turned psychopath. He served only himself, only the warped personal drives that pushed him into hideous crime. He was the ultimate mercenary.”

In October 2008, a report from the former Iraqi “Special Intelligence Unit M4” was obtained by Robert Fisk, indicating that the Iraqis had been interrogating Abu Nidal as a suspected spy for Kuwait and Egypt, and indirectly for the U.S.; the documents say he had been asked by the Kuwaitis to find links between Saddam and Al-Qaeda. It was shortly after the first series of interrogations, and just before he was to be moved to a more secure location, that he shot himself, the report says.
According to the Iraqi report, he was buried on August 29, 2002 in al-Karakh’s Islamic cemetery in Baghdad, in a grave marked only “M7”.
