"Islam carries out great respect to the Catholic faith"

- Yes, we see examples of this 'respect' every day with brave Muslims killing 65 year old Catholic nuns who have spent their lives helping sick children in Somalia. Then we see rabid jihadhis firebombing churches in the West Bank as a mark of respect. Not to mention the systematic slaughter of non-Muslims in Sudan. Of course this proves that the Pope's statements about the Muslim propensity for violence was completely inaccurate. Obviously these brave soldiers of Islam wouldn't dare show this same 'respect' to a young able-bodied Western male as they would end up in a hospital if they attempted anything approaching a fair fight. Why do that when they can attack old women instead?

Even old men appear to be too strong for these cowards. ... Islam tried to assasinate the last Pope by shooting him 4 times. They failed. Stick to killing women and children. It's what you do best.
