Hey Pope, seriously? You DO know that you are a main target of Islamic supremacists? You really should read a copy of the quran before you humiliate yourself in public. Did you forget that a Muslim already came very close to killing one of your predecessors?
In 1981, a Turkish Muslim, Mehmet Ali Agca, shot Pope John Paul II twice from close range in St Peter’s Square. Then 23, he shot the Pope twice from close range in St Peter’s Square, one bullet passing through his abdomen and another narrowly missing his heart.
Apparently this Pope does understand the threat. Pope Francis was recently asked by Father Jose Maria “Pepe” di Paola of the Argentinian news outlet, La Carcova, about “Muslim terrorists who want to kill you”, that is, on the death threats made by ISIS towards him, and he responded that he told God that if ISIS does kill him, to please make it a painless death. His quote is:
“I have said to the Lord: take care of me. But if your will is that I should die or that they do something to me, I ask you one favour: that they don’t hurt me… I’m a real scaredy cat when it comes to physical pain.”
The Islamic State (ISIS) threatened to launch a war against the Catholic Church and an invasion of Rome, after publishing a picture of its black flag fluttering above the Vatican (Dabiq magazine below).
Most interestingly, the goal to force the Vatican to become Muslim was recently stated by an ISIS agent in Italy named Imam Ismar Mesinovic, a Bosnian Muslim who stationed himself in the country to recruit Italian converts to fight for ISIS. He said:
“We Muslims believe that one day the whole world will be an Islamic state. Our goal is to make sure that even the Vatican will be Muslim.
ISIS issued in its electronic magazine a threat to the heart of Christianity (Rome) after publishing a picture of a black flag waving above the Vatican, threatening to “wage war against the Catholic Church.”
ISIS is targeting Pope Francis, calling him the “bearer of false truth.” According to an Italian source, ISIS is not only setting their sites on the Vatican, but more specifically, on Pope Francis himself. Italian authorities have already issued an alert giving warnings on places that our potential targets to terrorist, and one on the list, being very significant, was “places of worship,” which would include the Vatican.
ISIS has carried out a systematic campaign of bombings against many churches and religious edifices, trying to make its war waged on all religions and components with religious overtones.
