"Show me just what Mohammed 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." -14th century Byzantine emperor Manuel II PaleologusDuring a speech in Germany, Pope Benedict XVI quoted the above statement from a 14th century Byzantine emperor.In Gaza City some Christian churches were blown up, Muslims came out and protested death to Christians in many cities across the world including in London outside Westminster Church, and an Italian nun was shot in the back several times in Somalia....women dressed in burkas carried signs saying that the Pope has lost his mental and moral balance....excuse me? you put your women in burkas and stone them to death if they do not obey and you are calling the Pope unstable....? what is wrong with this picture? If this religion is one of peace then why all the violence because of words? To all my liberal American friends out there....(okay i don't have any) ..listen up...this is what Islam and the Moslems will do to you if they were running the United States or any European country. Your opinions, your open lifestyle, your artsy fartsy thinking would be a thing of the past. Oh, and that little thing we call the Bill of Rights would be in history books and taught to your children as something evil. Your idea of the Patriot Act somehow infringing on your Civil Rights would be something you would welcome with open arms, and you may even say, "Bush was right." If Moslems ruled the world.Someone was quoted as saying, "Stop flying airplanes into buildings, stop shooting nuns in the back, stop setting fires everytime your itty bitty little feelings are hurt over the slightest of slights -- and we'll stop with the "demonizing", OKAY?"....AMEN
