During nearly nine years of his papacy, the greatest massacres, forced conversions, rape and dislocation of the oldest Christian communities in the Middle East as well as Christian persecutions in Asia and Africa conducted entirely and relentlessly by Muslims have been under Francis’ watch. This article has absolutely nothing to do with Catholicism or Catholics but everything to do with Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

The most persecuted and discriminated against people in the 21st century are no longer Jews but CHRISTIANS!

Not ONCE during these nine years had Francis associated the relentless massacres of Christians all over the Muslim world Christian with Islamic scriptures and teachings. On the contrary and foolishly he opined ~

“Islam is a religion of peace, one which is compatible with respect for human rights and favours peaceful coexistence,” wrote Francis in his letter to the Christians in the Middle East in 2014.“Authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence” said Francis in his Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (2013).

He said this while the one of the oldest Christian communities on Earth (in my country Iraq) were being persecuted by the Muslims.

How could the leader of over 1.2 billion Catholics make such risible statements when any rational and fair minded human being having read only EIGHT chapters from 114 (chapters 2 to 9) would find out how utterly stupid Francis’ public declarations are.

There is absolutely not a shadow of a doubt that Francis never read Muhammad’s Quran and those who advise him are deceiving him because there are over 100 verses in Muhammad’s Quran that incite Muslims to commit JIHAD against non Muslims/ Kuffar/ Infidels, currently 80% of humanity.

To compound the previous despicable and utterly untrue statements, Francis in his recent meeting with Muslims in the United Arab Emirates to recon ciliate Christians and Muslims he published an article – with the most accomplished Sunni deceiver – the Grand Sheikh of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, delusionally titled: ‘A document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together’ 

One of its egregiously false statements as dictated by el-Tayeb: “Terrorism is due to an accumulation of incorrect interpretations of religious texts and to policies linked to hunger, poverty, injustice, oppression and pride.”

Anyone who has read let alone studied Islamic scripture would instantly figure out how incredibly dishonest the above reasons for Islamic terror are because ALL the schools of Sunni jurisprudence (MADHAHIB), approve without any equivocation that JIHAD is mandated (the sixth unmentioned pillar of Islam) upon ALL Muslims.

Al Baqara 2.216: “Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.”

Sahih Muslim Hadith 4631  & 4626 Abu Huraira

I heard Muhammad say:” … I love that I should be killed in Allah’s Cause [Jihad]; then I should be brought back to life and be killed again in Jihad'”

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.50 Narrated by Anas bin Malik

The Prophet said, “A single endeavor of fighting in Allah’s Cause {Qital fi Sabil Allah} (JIHAD) is better than the world and whatever is in it”

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.73        Narrated by Abdullah bin Abi Aufa

Allah’s Apostle said, “Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords”

Hence according to el Tayeb’s deliberately and of course conveniently untruthful interpretation of Sharia makes Muhammad and all the Sunni Schools Shafi’i, Hanafi, Maliki and Hanbali are incorrect in their interpretations of the Qur’an and Sunnah!

So has el-Tayeb departed from Islamic orthodoxy, or is he deceiving Pope Francis and trying to deceive the world?

Catholics especially should ask their priests and themselves, how is it possible that the supposedly ‘infallible’ pope would utter such fallacies misguiding his flock to believe that Muslims can coexist with Christians when in reality Muslims cannot ever accept the Trinity of Christianity which represents – as far as Muslims are concerned – the most abhorrent SHIRK (more than One God).

Will enough Christians raise pertinent questions with their priests to find out why they are being deliberately deceived by the highest echelons of the Catholic Church? Image: REUTERS/Alessandro Bianchi/File Photo
