Jihadi cell uncovered in Italy, planned assassination of Pope Francis December 4, 2015

One wonders if this direct threat on the life of Pope Francis might shake him out of his interreligious fantasia?  Ideology is almost impervious to contrary evidence:

in Italy a jihadist cell was exposed. The Italian and Kosovar police led in a joint anti-terror operation in Italy and in Kosovo. Four Islamists were arrested on Tuesday. All those arrested are from Kosovo and the Muslims are of Albanian origin. They are accused of having planned an assassination attempt against Pope Francis. “This is the last pope” is a quote from an Internet entry of the aforementioned Islamists.

Internet surveillance is supposed to have brought  the four suspects under investigation. They have published “unique” images which identified them  as sympathizers of the Islamic State (IS). They have regularly visited websites by jihadist groups, and maintain contacts with Islamists in Syria.

The group had directed threats against Pope Francis and Tracey Ann Jacobson, who was until August 2015, the US ambassador in Kosovo. The suspects “celebrated” the attacks in Paris and urged further attacks.

According to police, the group’s leader was arrested in Kosovo. Weapons were seized n his house.  The base of the cell, however, is to have been in the Italian province of Brescia, where three other people were arrested.

In recent months, many Muslims were detained in several police actions. At the end of July  two Islamists, a Tunisian and a Pakistani were arrested. They had leaflets with the black banner of the Islamic State (IS) and circulated the text: “Islamic State in Rome. We are in your streets.” Similar pamphlets have surfaced in recent years in several Italian cities.

SO. We have that going for us.

I’m betting it won’t. Francis is a good secular liberal, and secular liberals in the United States are doubling down on their rhetoric about diversity, especially about Islam being a “religion of peace.” Furthermore, most of the hierarchy in the First World are just like him.

Finally, there that little matter of CCC 839-843, especially CCC 841. That has become Catholicism’s de facto approach toward Islam. Every Catholic should read this:
