[A friend sent me that story and asked “ I don't know why he does not understand Islam is violent. They keep proving it.”
Sadly there is a logical answer. The Pope is walking on paper-thin theological ice and there’s more at stake than meets the eye. If he dropped the Kumbaya nonsense and acknowledged Islam’s congenital brutality (toward themselves and infidels), he could be cornered into acknowledging that the same Muslim pathology is behind the "Palestinian resistance" to Israel's "occupation” and their Jew-hatred in general. For the Pontiff, that's too close for comfort. One wrong move and 2,000 years of Vatican bubbe meises goes down the drain! This is and has been what makes the Jews a danger to Catholics and other Christian denominations.
For example, the Fakestinians insist there never was a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount and there’s no Jewish connection to “Palestine.” If true, that means the story of Jesus is a flat out man-made fantasy! That’s why the Pope and other Christian allies of the Muslim Arabs have been so quiet while Islam commits genocide against their Christian brethren in the Middle East. df]
