Ex-Muslim Tells the Pope That Islam is a Religion of war

Magdi Allam the Egyptian born ex-Muslim who the Pope had sensationally converted to Christianity on national TV last Easter, has come out against one of the Pope's Cardinals, who has said that Islam is a religion of peace and that some Muslims have betrayed Islam. Mr. Allam has said that terrorism is breed from Islam and the actions of Mohammad. I say that we take the word of the ex-Muslim over the either politically correct or ignorant Cardinal.

Muslim convert to Catholicism tells Pope Islam is not inherently good

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- The Muslim-born journalist baptized by Pope Benedict XVI at Easter asked the pope to tell his top aide for relations with Muslims that Islam is not an intrinsically good religion and that Islamic terrorism is not the result of a minority gone astray.

As the Vatican was preparing to host the first meeting of the Catholic-Muslim Forum Nov. 4-6, Magdi Allam, a longtime critic of the Muslim faith of his parents, issued an open letter to Pope Benedict that included criticism of Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.

In the letter, posted on his Web site Oct. 20, Allam said he wanted to tell the Pope of his concern for "the serious religious and ethical straying that has infiltrated and spread within the heart of the church."

He told the Pope that it "is vital for the common good of the Catholic Church, the general interest of Christianity and of Western civilization itself" that the Pope make a pronouncement in "a clear and binding way" on the question of whether Islam is a valid religion.

The Catholic Church's dialogue with Islam is based on the Second Vatican Council's Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions ("Nostra Aetate"), which urged esteem for Muslims because "they adore the one God," strive to follow his will, recognize Jesus as a prophet, honor his mother, Mary, "value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting."

The council called on Catholics and Muslims "to work sincerely for mutual understanding" and for social justice, moral values, peace and freedom.

Allam told Pope Benedict he specifically objected to Cardinal Tauran telling a conference in August that Islam itself promotes peace but that "'some believers' have 'betrayed their faith,'" using it as a pretext for violence.

"The objective reality, I tell you with all sincerity and animated by a constructive intent, is exactly the opposite of what Cardinal Tauran imagines," Allam told the pope. "Islamic extremism and terrorism are the mature fruit" of following "the sayings of the Quran and the thought and action of Mohammed."

cracks are appearing all over the net as you surf around,in the lies about the Religion of peace and the great cover up that we are in no danger from this evil cult.When clearly we are.

That is why so many Muslims are against freedom of speech.

It is obvious that the west is in danger from this evil, backward and med-evil cult.
We owe a debt of gratitude to ex muslims who muster the braveness to come forward at great personal risk, to tell us what Islam is really about and what is really going on.
We are brainwashed with this peaceful intention nonsense and this article really brings it home.

What a difference between a former muslim converted to Christianity(Magdi Allam) and a new convert to Islam.(Adam Gadahn or Richard Reid)

Magdi Allam, may God bless him, spoke the truth which needs to be spoken to power.
For a recent convert, relatively new to the faith, to correct the errors & irregularities of the Pope is an act of courage & integrity seldom equaled if ever excelled.

This is a good sign. Let us hope that the Pope's reaction will be even better.

Christopher Logan said...

I believe that the Pope knows the truth about Islam. I just hope he does not want to be politically correct about it.

I seriously doubt that the good cardinal is so ignorant about islam, the religion of hate. How ironic that an ex-muslim speaks the Truth about this Cult, and a supposed Christian is spouting taqqia that would make a muslim proud!

Many Christians have consumed Moe's Kool-Ade (blood). Read the Christian Reaction page at A Common Word Between Us and You. You will be disgusted.

Christopher Logan said...

I see it on many Christian forums. They cannot even bring themselves to speak up for their fellow Christians. Thankfully all Christians are not silent and more and more of them are speaking up though.

Ben said...

Christopher, once anyone has been brainwashed into the false belief that all religions are equally valid pathways to God, it is very difficult to break through their fact shields.

I am editing the Myth vs Fact series, and republishing them on a new blog: Islam: Piracy Disguised as Religion. We need a way to make this information go viral.

I learned yesterday that Australia will have national internet censorship next year. We will, too, unless we stop Obamanation.

Christopher Logan said...

I will check out your updates.
Christians need to take a hard look on how Christians are persecuted across the Islamic world. That is what counts, not these useless interfaith meetings.

So the liberals get voted into office in the land of Oz and they are already looking to silence people. They say that they are for freedom......but that is only if you agree with them.

Cristopher, Nov. 12: UN Interfaith Dialogue Conference in N.Y.C. 30 world leaders to attend. Long blog post an hour or so ago at

I caught King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia in a pair of deceptions.

Check out UN Watch for latest on Durban II, it ain't pretty.

Christopher Logan said...

Can you email me the links please? Lower left hand side of the home page. The Pope is only doing this to show that he tried and Muslims will not open up their countries to freedom for other religions.

Mr christopher we respect freedom, But we have some boundries.
And have one status our holy book, our Holy personalities in our life.

Ben said...

Maria, this is how Islam respects our freedom:
Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Verse:--"You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind." means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.
