Pope's Secretary: 'Islam's Attempts To Islamicize West Cannot Be Denied'

Hearing that the Pope's secretary has made statements such as, "While Christians respect Islam and desire to dialogue with Muslims, ... [we] must act to protect the Christian identity of Europe," and that "Attempts at the 'Islamification' of the West cannot be denied," shouldn't be a surprise, nor in anyway should they be considered offensive to Islam. The statements appear to me to be rational and reasonable based upon the current state of affairs in the world today and what Muslim fundamentalist leaders themselves have stated; the Islamization of Europe and America is indeed their goal.

And if Western media doesn't find the Islamists' irrational statements of conquest to be offensive, how can they possibly find the Vatican's rational statements intended to avoid conquest offensive either?

The Pope's secretary, was interviewed in Friday's edition of Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazine. According to IsraelNN.com:

Msgr. Ganswein was asked about Pope Benedict's September 2006 speech in Regensburg, Germany, and its criticism of violent trends within Islam. Though the Pope may have intended to warn against religious terrorism, his remarks aroused fury throughout the Moslem world, developing into actual violence in several places. Arabs in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas attacked seven Christian churches, a nun was murdered in Somalia, a call for the Pope's death was issued in London, and Iraqi groups threatened the Vatican.

"I believe the Regensburg speech, as it is known, was prophetic," Msgr. Ganswein told the German magazine, because it countered a "certain naivete" among people who do not recognize that various currents exist within Islam.

"Attempts at the 'Islamification' of the West cannot be denied," he said, according to an English translation in the Catholic Explorer. "And the associated danger for the identity of Europe cannot be ignored out of a wrongly understood sense of respect... The Catholic side sees this clearly and says as much." True respect, Ganswein said, is shown in a dialogue with Muslims that is frank, open and honest.

As AINA reported earlier this month, radical Islam's goal is indeed, global conquest.

AINA suggests that myriad intellectuals in denial might now, at last, might wish to study with care the continuing legacy of jihad war, and pay serious attention to its modern Muslim proponents - -including the jihadist cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has been lionized, with tragic irony, by London's own current mayor as a "progressive."

Here are some more of Qaradawi's apposite views on jihad and jihad terrorism:

It has been determined by Islamic law that the blood and property of people of Dar Al--Harb [the Domain of Disbelief where the war for the domination of Islam should be waged, i.e. including within Western Europe and America] is not protected. Because they fight against and are hostile towards the Muslims, they annulled the protection of his blood and his property... in modern war, all of society, with all its classes and ethnic groups, is mobilized to participate in the war, to aid its continuation, and to provide it with the material and human fuel required for it to assure the victory of the state fighting its enemies. Every citizen in society must take upon himself a role in the effort to provide for the battle. The entire domestic front, including professionals, laborers, and industrialists, stands behind the fighting army, even if it does not bear arms.

Allah has also made the prophet Muhammad into an epitome for religious warriors [Mujahideen] since he ordered Muhammed to fight for religion... the first assignment is to prepare the hero who is willing to put his life in his own hands for Allah's sake, and he who does not care whether he encounters death or death encounters him...He [i.e., a self--immolating bomber] kills the enemy while taking self--risk, similarly to what Muslims did in the past... He wants to scare his enemies, and the religious authorities have permitted this. They said that if he causes the enemy both sorrow and fear of Muslims... he is permitted to risk himself and even get killed.

AINA's piece points out that Qaradawi stated his ultimate goals explicitly--consistent with orthodox jihad ideology--at a Muslim youth convention in 1995 in Toledo, Ohio:
"We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America!". Subsequently Qaradawi issued a public fatwa on December 2, 2002, calling on Muslims to conquer Europe, stating, "Islam will return to Europe as a conqueror and a victor after being expelled from it twice -- once from the south, from Andalusia, and a second time, from the east, when it knocked several times on the doors of Athens."
And as the AINA piece also points out, Qaradawi's fatwa ruled, in addition, that Muslims should re-conquer, "former Islamic colonies to Andalus (Spain), southern Italy, Sicily, the Balkans and the Mediterranean islands."
In light of the most recent attacks in London and Glasgow will the West's intellectuals finally awaken to this threat--the jihad? Will they study with seriousness and urgency the theological-juridical underpinnings of the Islamic jihad, and its 14 centuries of brutal, imperialistic conquests, continuing through the present, whose ultimate goals are the re-establishment of a supranational Muslim Caliphate, and imposition of Shari'a totalitarianism across the globe?
So, pray tell, how can Muslims possibly find the Vatican's statements offensive, when their own clerics confirm the Pope's concerns and do so in the most irrational and offensive way possible - by encouraging jihad against the West and the murder of virtually everyone who disagrees with them, even Muslims that find the extremists to be themselves - "offensive"?
