“We have to bring the dialogue up to date following the great successes of the pontificate of John Paul II,” said Yahya Sergio Yahe Pallavicini, vice-president of the Italian Islamic Religious Community.”
That was one of the low periods for the Vatican, whose placating intolerance only begot more violence, and the Middle East region is still reeling from his absurd policies of “outreach”. It’s a fact that the Mohemmedans are driving Christians from the region in droves.
I say the current Pontiff got it right back in 2006: “Show me just what Muhammad 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.” Pipes offers his opinions on the controversy of what the actually Pope said, here.
Pallavinci further states: Now there is a need for deeper dialogue on doctrine, theology and the character of religions in today’s world and the challenges we face,” “We must try, together with the Pope, to get on a path of dialogue on issues confronting humanity today,”
Anytime “dialogue” is mentioned in these Islamic/Christian get-togethers, it’s always done with the understanding that the other (Christian world) must show more understanding, while the Islamic world demands more respect. When the Mohammedans begin to allow non-Muslims into Mecca and Medina, and denounce the jihad ideology, then perhaps there might be some grounds to consider the sincerity of their calls for dialogue.
