This is a brief story from a Greek news service. Notice how it’s written backwards ( to help you, I will tell you that it’s from a conference the Pope has convened of all the high clergy in the Middle East… most likely a “how to save your lives” conference…!) :
The Koran is a text that encourages Islam to impose itself with force and permits the killing of Christians, said Lebanon’s Catholic Patriarch of Antioch Archbishop Raboula Beylouni, addressing a Vatican meeting of Middle East bishops.
“The Koran gives Muslims the right to judge Christians and kill them with Jihad,” he said. “It gives orders to impose religion with force, with the sword. For this reason, Muslims don’t recognise the freedom of religion among themselves or others.”
Pope Benedict XVI on 11 Oct. the opened the two-week-long meeting of 246 Middle East bishops and other religious leaders by lashing out against violence “in God’s name”.
The pontiff warned delegates to guard against the spread of “terrorist ideology” in the modern world.
Also notice that this guy has just tossed out the Vatican’s usual policy of apologizing to muslims for saying mean things about them….
So – would you now like to buy a vowel…?
