The Pope, in comments that were criticized among Islamic nations, referred to criticism of the Prophet Mohammed by a 14th-century Byzantine emperor. The passage read "everything Mohammed brought was evil, such as his command to spread, by the sword, the faith he preached". The Pope read the comments. "They were not his own words.
However he did say, that using the terms "jihad" and "holy war", the Pope said violence was "incompatible with the nature of God".
Islamofacists demanded that the Pope apologize for essentially quoting someone else who said Mohammad words promoted violence.
Muslims, of course, went out and immediately proved they weren't violent by burning five Christian churches and killing a nun. It’s certainly comforting that their immediate actions disprove the emperor's conclusion.
Muslims are going to have to decide very soon where their place in the world is or we're headed for World War IV (Cold war was WWIII). Does Islam seek peace, death or forced conversion? They must come to grips with these directives in the Koran and their meaning vis-a-vis the rest of humanity or the future could be very bloody indeed.
