So Much for the Pope’s “Interfaith” Outreach

The following brief article describes the Islamic State’s unequivocal response to Pope Francis’ “interfaith” outreach. The Pope waves away the Great Jihad by insisting that ISIS is not really Islamic, since Islam is inherently a peaceful religion. However, when the black-hooded thugs show up at the gates of the Vatican, they will be the mujahideen of the Islamic State or a similar jihad force. These warriors are the sharp end of the Islamic stick, and very religious.

The Islamic State responds to Pope Francis: “We are waging a religious war, and we hate you”

by Horatius
August 18, 2016

The Islamic State has publicly responded to statements of Pope Francis that the war waged by Islamic terrorists is not religious in nature. The article’s answer to the pontiff is that their only motivation is religious and approved by Allah in the Qur’an.

In highlights of the latest issue of Dabiq — the official propaganda magazine of the Islamic State — the terrorist group especially criticizes the naïveté of Pope Francis, who clings to the belief that Muslims want peace and peaceful coexistence and that Islamic terror acts are motivated by economic reasons. In the article “By the Sword”, the authors categorically state: “This is a divinely-sanctioned war between the Muslim nation and the infidel nations.”…

“Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them”

The article laments that despite the clearly religious nature of their attacks, “many people in the ‘crusaders’ country’ (Western countries)” expressed shock and even disgust because the leadership of the Islamic State “uses religion to justify violence … Indeed, jihad — the spread of the rule of Allah with the sword — is an obligation that we find in the Qur’an, the word of our Lord,” says the magazine. “Shedding the blood of unbelievers is a common obligation. The command is very clear: kill the unbelievers; as Allah says, “kill the disbelievers wherever you find them.”…

The fact is that “even if you (the West) stopped bombing us, throwing us in jail, torturing us, to humiliating and driving you us out of our land, we would continue to hate you, because the main raison of our hatred will not disappear as long as you have not embraced Islam. Even if you had to pay the jizya and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you.”…
