A spokesman for Egypt’s influential Al Azhar University has said that a restoration of friendly ties between the Islamic institution and the Vatican will come when Pope Francis proclaims that Islam is a peaceful religion. (I think any sane person with little knowledge of current affairs will never proclaim such a blatant lie, then how could we accept this from Pope? Islamic terrorists have carried out more than 20,000 deadly terrorist attacks since 9/11
, killing more than thousands and thousands of innocent people, still they want us to believe that Islam is religion of Peace? Its easy to believe earth is flat, or sun sets in my garden, but ‘Islam is religion of peace’ is indigestible.) Read the following news, from Catholic Culture:
Mahmound Abdel Gawad, the spokesman for the Islamic university, said that Al Azhar broke off a series of inter-faith talks with the Vatican in response to statements by Pope Benedict XVI, criticizing the Egyptian government’s failure to protect the Christian minority. The university has not quarrel with Pope Francis, he said, and “the doors of Al Azhar are open.”
Nevertheless, the Islamic envoy said that relations would be enriched if the Pope would issue a public statement that Islam is a religion of peace.
Gawad drew the line, however, at participation in Vatican-sponsored talks with leaders of the great monotheistic religions. He said that representatives of Al Azhar would notparticipate in any conference involving Israeli Jews.
Why Muslims just want to hear that Islam is religion of peace? Why don’t their action prove this to us? On one hand they keep calling their religion to be religion of peace and on other hand they keep killing innocent, unarmed Non-Muslims. Why this double-standard?
