Pope Francis, take note: “Christians are being persecuted!”

Expert on ISIS Shares His Thoughts on Upcoming Papal Trip to Iraq | EWTN News Nightly

On Pope Francis’ agenda to Iraq, he will meet with the top Shiite Muslim leader. Pope Francis’ upcoming trip to Iraq is a historic trip, as it it the first time a pope has ever visited the country.

A key point to his trip will be inter-religious meetings with some Muslim leaders. Rome Correspondent, Colm Flynn sat down with a French professor and expert on ISIS, Alexandre De Valle, to get his thoughts on the upcoming papal trip. Flynn asks the professor whether he believes the historic trip will have a real positive impact. De Valle explains that only if it goes a certain way, saying: “inside the Muslim world… a Muslim leader would never apologize for persecuted Christians.” Flynn asks De Valle whether the pope and the Vatican need to take a harder line, and De Valle continues by saying yes but “expressed with sweetness, with Catholic charity.”

When asked whether the pope taking a harder line would cause further division, the expert on ISIS said he did not believe that would be the case, “If you are not smart and not diplomatic, you will say please stop persecuting our brothers, of course it’s a shock. But if you say [it] in a clever way: we like you, we are friends, but it’s a pity that I observe that my brothers are persecuted, like a victim,” that should not offend anyone. He ends his interview by stating where he sees things going between the two major religions.


CP&S comment: It is a shame the Rome correspondent, Colin Flynn, cut the interview short at the exact moment Alexandre Del Valle was about to describe in greater detail the ongoing atrocities our persecuted Christian brothers in the Middle East are suffering. Did Flynn think it would be politically incorrect?

  1. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
    This man Bergoglio continues his ways; From his blasphemous actions of bringing Pachamama human sacrificial pagan belief relics with all of their bloodstained history of debauchery right into the Holy Sanctuary of the Holy Church, a sort of pseudo Amazonian and Christian worship, to now his continuous coddling and capitulation with a complete and absolute proven enemy of the Church and Jesus Christ; Islam. That from its basis of a political ideology that Mohammad declared in 632 A.D., that all of Christendom and Judaism are in complete opposition to Islam and must convert or be destroyed; so apparently this heretic Pope is hell-bent on proclaiming some new multi-blend one world religion which is totally blaspheming God Almighty with all of this heresy and NWO contrivance, that has nothing to do with Jesus Christ and the world’s salvation; but rather its demise! We’re obviously talking about the flat-out work of the Devil here.

    “Inter-religious meetings with some Muslim leaders.” What in the world could this Bergoglio Heretic even be imagining, having witnessed with the world the stark evidence and nightmare Jihadist Violence spurred on with its seething cauldron of hate that Islam has tolerated and even condoned throughout the Muslim world; this basically abhorrent, even abominable genocide and outright murder or slaughtering of Christians and Jews along with victims of other faiths, in the name of Allah.

    God is not the one advocating murdering anyone or the torture and burning alive of Christians that has been occurring in Syria and Iraq for some years now. I never see the Muslim world or Islam take full ownership of these atrocities and declare them as totally wrong and that they will be stopped immediately, never to be repeated, as in no more bloodshed of any kind will be tolerated! On the contrary Iran’s leadership just announced that their number one sworn enemy in the region Israel; how they intend on destroying it within10 years! This to me means one thing, that just like some leaders and experts on the matter have said all along, including Israel’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu; that Iran can never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon! But to be sure; that this is the game plan Iran has in mind, which will be the means of total annihilation of the Holy Land or more significantly the birthplace of “Jesus Christ the Savior of the world and His Church” to be replaced by the ruler and destroyer of this material world; Satan. This would be symbolically a death blow to the faith of Christians and Jews respectively.
    These statements indicate to me what is happening in this NWO politically correct game!
    “inside the Muslim world… a Muslim leader would never apologize for persecuted Christians.” Flynn asks De Valle whether the pope and the Vatican need to take a harder line, and De Valle continues by saying yes but “expressed with sweetness, with Catholic charity.”

    “A Clever Way,” so not being basic and simple truth seekers or followers, but, to lay snares or doors with additional hidden back doors to escape from that pathway; or perhaps beg his way into submission to the enemy! Talk about putting a noose around one’s own neck! The Pope here is to be a “snake charmer” and play the Devil’s game, or shall we say the “Devil’s Advocate,” and who wins in such a game? A convoluted web of half-truths and innuendo, but not solid ground to stand upon with the absolute Truth! These talks will be chock full of deceptions and lies!
    Here a clear cut statement in another similar article that states the truth.
    “As he put it, “Taqiyya is a component of Sharia that allows, and even encourages you to lie to achieve your goals.” Washington Post.

    It is a held belief by Muslims that they can lie to non-believers to promote their own agenda and that doing so earns them a place in heaven. This to me is the opposite of Christianity and indeed all of the teachings of Jesus Christ and God the Father. Are we to believe for one second that people who think and believe in this way are really going to do the right thing in any agreements or resolutions obtained by negotiating or having “Inter-Religious Meetings?” One would have to be far more than just naïve to think this, but in fact a complete illogical and fake “not Christian” fool. Or, what I fear most in this scenario; is a Devil’s Cohort, perhaps even a pure 100% antichrist!

    Bergoglio is again inserting himself into worldly government and “ways of the world” affairs; I suppose to some to be a magician and do or accomplish what only Jesus Christ could and did which namely was to save sinners from themselves! This man is beyond a heretic, but he indeed is wicked! Perhaps his actions are a step toward giving a voice of moral authority to the coming antichrist. I am not only saddened but sickened by his many freelancing escapades with China’s CCP, the United Nations and now these enemies of all Christians along with Israel! He’s not acting like or as a leader of the Church, but rather as a leader of men and government; powers and principalities that get their power only from the worldly; and father of all lies!

    God help us in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

    You are dead right Lawrence! Nothing will come from NWO fan Francis kowtowing to lying, heretical Islamists, whose sole purpose is to conquer the world, whether by the sword or by satanic stealth.

    When we talk about “good Muslims” – for many of us have come across those Muslims who appear friendly and amenable towards us – let us remember that not only are these Muslims despised by their radical co-religionists and seen as traitors to Islam, but also these same so-called “good Muslims” would turn around and think nothing of slicing off our heads in a time of another Islamic scourge against Christendom! That has happened across the centuries time and again in all the lands they conquered and stole from us by the sword. Beware!

    P.S. Instead of bending over backwards to pander to Muslims, Pope Francis should obey Christ’s command to Peter to “confirm thy brethren” (in the Faith), Luke 22, 32. The Iraqui and Syrian Christians have suffered the unimaginable under the Islamic sword: all his love and attention should be dedicated to them.
    Wishful thinking I fear (sigh).

  3. Hi Kathleen…as always your insights and words that to me are obviously based on thoughts and understanding of Truth are most invaluable! I couldn’t agree with you more and the Devil’s game or plan is the same now as it has always been which is where all these good Muslims or the bad to the core take their marching orders from ultimately. You nailed it here, “think nothing of slicing off our heads in a time of another Islamic scourge against Christendom! That has happened across the centuries time and again in all the lands they conquered and stole from us by the sword. Beware!” History is an operative word in what you say here and one of my favorite historical figures who really made a difference when it was truly crunch time was this wise man across the pond as he referred to it on many occasions having said this, “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.” Anyone doing a search will find variations on this same theme all of which are wonderfully put and by other great writers or thinkers but to me Winston Churchill said it spot-on and he was a great writer/thinker too but most important he was a great leader! He was a man for the ages in my mind and this is good to bring up this point of good leadership which is crucial and critical especially when the Devil rears his ugly head and is getting his due; like now, but, unfortunately it is sorely lacking! Where is this great or even good leadership now when its needed; do we see this sort of fellow who sees with clarity the Truth and Facts before him and with wisdom coupled to a conviction from a deep faith in God above, who can act decisively to fend off all foes effectively being able to inspire and rally the noble among us to accomplish the mission?

    All I see here in my country are the despots gathering more scoundrels to feed on the rest! So this Virtue certainly isn’t appearing in our government leaders currently who are too busy being despots and greedy for power or more money gluttons they are; nor do we see it in the religious community with Bergoglio and much of the Church hierarchy save for a few outstanding heroes calling out in the forest in some instances singlehandedly attempting to sound the alarm and speak to the Truth before it’s too late. So my question to Bergoglio is what do you think you are doing and do you do it because you don’t know history or these fundamental Truths that are quite apparent to anyone who has been around the track enough to know the basic set-up? Or is it what I suspect that you do know precisely what the truth is here in these matters but run contrary to it and the Faith you’re supposed to be leading; for your own ulterior designs, or is it flat out your acceptance of the diabolical!

    Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand devotedly by the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon [that is, your earthly possessions or anything else you trust in and rely on instead of God].”

    Perhaps Bergoglio and many so called progressives who all feed into NOW need to focus on this bit of fact which hasn’t been eradicated in the mindset of many but rather has only increased exponentially!

    “In 632, only months before he died, Muhammad apparently met for the first time with a Christian community as such. An official delegation of Christians, probably led by a bishop, came to Mecca from Najran in Yemen. After engaging the Christians in discussion, the Prophet is said to have realized that Christian teachings are indeed incompatible with Islam, after which the revelation followed that only Islam is acceptable to God as a religion. The Quran also says very specifically that those who refer to Jesus as God are blasphemers, and that Christians saying that Christ is the son of God is an imitation of Jews, who earlier had said that Ezra is the son of God. According to the Quran Jesus was only a servant; Jesus the son of Mary was no more than an apostle of God. Quranic verses dealing with Jesus’ death have been interpreted differently by commentators, but generally they have been taken to mean that Jesus did not die by crucifixion. For Christians the Quran has thus served as a denial of Jesus’ incarnation and death on the cross and of the reality of the Trinity.” (Oxford University Press)

    So on through the Crusades of the Middle Ages and even later at the turn of the 20th century Ottoman Empire; is it any wonder why Muslims are so hell-bent on destroying Christianity! The Great Crusades were actually a resultant course of necessary action to counter the largest Caliphate in European and Asia Minor history when all non-Muslims were either murdered, raped or enslaved as chattel of Islam treated as lower than dogs. But alas, these NWO and progressive imbeciles here in my counties current government leadership, as well too many voters throughout the dazed and confused society by the millions; think today’s Muslims have a kinder gentler side that needs exploring just like this pope does; and appeasing or outright capitulating to. Good luck with that!
    Thank you again for this opportunity!
    God bless.

  4. Sorry this typo occurs on it’s own as my PC system spell check doesn’t like NWO and if I don’t keep after it, it will reverse it to NOW! So think what AI is going to pull on us when everything is in a frenzy and fingers are on buttons like crazy trigger fingers or someone isn’t coherent like whack job Biden; so the machines decide to slip one by on us or perhaps the Devil is in the details of the damn machines too! BEWARE is correct!


  5. johnhenrycn says:

    Hi, Lawrence Mora (III) . Keeping in mind your frenzy trigger fingers, why don’t you try counting to 100 (if you can) and then start over on this thread? No offence.


  6. Hey johnhenry(peon) I know some Canadians have issues and most requiring specialized care which does make it a monumental challenge to contribute anything substantive to the global community other than the occasional burp! But here’s a novel idea; why don’t you try using an icon of your own face instead of some generic cartoon character, that would go a long way with “actual worldly adults” taking you seriously! But only after you see a psychiatrist or when you grow up; whichever comes first; fella! Do you actually have that much to hide or is the generic one an improvement over your own; MUG SHOT! Happy motoring or is it skiing!!


  7. johnhenrycn says:

    Larry, you ask why I don’t try using an icon of my own face.

    Fair question. You may like exposing yourself, but I do not. I am thinking of changing my avatar to this mountaintop scene which I drive by every few years to my home village. What do you think?

    Sorry about that, Larry:

  9. John, this is not the place to conduct the ironing out of personal concerns as for example the way one might in a chat room or personal blog of their own. I’m getting annoyed because I think you know full well exactly what you are doing and you started out directing your attention at me with some sort of corny sophomoric personal attack modality that you’re engaged in; which I don’t have the slightest interest in nor should I at all anywhere; but especially here. You continually divert from topic and toss innuendo upon innuendo until it outright becomes insulting to all. Show the appropriate respect and dignity that anyone else does here and don’t divert from topic at all, especially if you’re not adding anything appropriate to the discussion at hand!

    Consider it like a pseudo domestic violence as when one spouse or family member is attacking and instilling discomfort, not harmony in the home; that gets people locked up or at least legally separated by court order! I have no interest in any such discourse with anyone online, no time and not appropriate even though it’s not face to face in the home, its still very serious due to the fact that; it is a community effort here where personal thoughts, ideas and opinions of importance pertaining to Catholic’s and their faith are presented; in a professional and congenial manner we pray.

    Hopefully you are getting this sorted out now, because I’ve taken way more time with this than I was planning to or would with most such annoyances! I’m first doing it out of respect and utmost consideration to CP&S, a group of ladies that work so hard to produce this top shelf venue for the Catholic Faith and Faithful; also in consideration of all those who visit the site! But, let’s say now to cut you a break; from me to you and give you a leg up on striking a balance that allows smooth sailing here for me, you, as well as the next person. You need to cool it with the antics and carousing with me or anyone here; and just back it off. Do what you like elsewhere if this is your typical disposition; but anywhere I comment and interact with others just keep in mind I’m not interested in this rhetoric or polarized debate you have insisted upon. What I do is my business and what you do is yours; and they are to be separate, especially if they don’t match and conflict in tenor or substance. You’re stepping way out of line in my opinion, and like I said, I wasn’t even interested in saying this much. You don’t need me or anyone else pointing out your foibles or what sort of inappropriate behavior you have displayed here. This will hopefully serve for your sake as the Big Kahuna. Adios Muchachos.

    Lovely photo and nicely done. Next time you’re driving by, pull over and say a few heart felt prayers for all of us sinners, that is the one request you will get from me. Amen.
    Lawrence Morra III

    Oh, btw, I don’t like exposing myself online either, typically I’m a very private person, and only decided to get this involved with social media a few years ago and never had Facebook or that sort of thing; just for business, writing and now this here, is about it.

    Well, Lawrence, they say there’s always someone for each of us. I’ll never find another you.

    Ok naughty boys, you’ve had your fun 😉 , now let’s get back to the subject of this article….

    One of the greatest unreported facts today is the tremendous scorn, isolation and persecution Muslims suffer in their communities when they convert to Christianity. And many Muslims do convert – whatever the manipulated statistics say – once they discover Christ and the Truth of the Catholic Christian Faith.
    France (where the greatest number of Muslims in Europe live) continues to cover up the harsh reality of this persecution of converts,,, probably because they are scared of a violent backlash from intolerant, bellicose Islam were they to report on the real figures!

    Here is just one of many videos describing some of the cruelty dealt out by Islamists to these brave converts, their former co-religionists:
