Pope Urban II, realizing the threat posed to Europe, and upon hearing a plea from the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I Komnenos for help to resist the Muslim onslaught in Anatolia (now called Turkey) initiated the First Crusade in 1095. A defensive war – but employing the age old tactic of taking the fight to the enemy.
Pope Benedict XVI recognized the threat. He cited the Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Palaiologos (or Paleologus) in his on September 12, 2006 Regensburg address , “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
The present incumbent washes feet – as if to demonstrate his piety – but instead gives the clearest possible example of his stupidity. Christ washed the feet of his disciples at the last supper – does the Pope believe he too will be resurrected?
This threat a direct consequence of the Pope’s pro-Muslim migration advocacy.
CHRISTMAS TERROR: Vatican braces for growing ISIS threat in Midnight Mass warning
THE Vatican is bracing itself for an increased threat this Christmas after an Islamic State attack killed 12 people in a busy Berlin market.
By Tom Batchelor, The Express, December 24, 2016:
Visitors to this year’s Christmas Eve Mass can expect heightened security including tougher checks and bag searches.But despite a heightened threat in recent years the pontiff has refused to change how he conducts the annual ceremony.Last year Pope Francis ignored pleas from Italian police to wear a bullet proof vest during his Christmas message despite chilling threats issued by ISIS about a planned invasion of Rome. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk in the run up to Christmas 12 month ago, the Pope’s spokesman said the pontiff was aware of threats made by ISIS against him but was “not afraid” of fanatical Islamist fighters.He said Pope Francis also refused to have alterations made to his Popemobile to protect himself during the Christmas Day message.The Pope was advised by police to beef up security in the wake of fresh threats but has refused to change his famously relaxed style of leadership in response to the jihadi group.
