(Updates with calling of Assisi summit)

By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY, Jan 1 (Reuters) – Pope Benedict, worried over increasing inter-religious violence, will host a summit of world religious leaders in Assisi in October to discuss how they can better promote peace, he announced on Saturday.

Benedict told pilgrims and tourists in St Peter’s Square the aim of the meeting would be to “solemnly renew the commitment of believers of every religion to live their own religious faith in the service of the cause for peace”.

He made the announcement hours after a bomb killed at least 17 people in a church in Egypt in the latest attack on Christians in the Middle East and Africa.

The Assisi meeting will take place on the 25th anniversary of a similar encounter hosted by the late Pope John Paul in 1986 in the birthplace of St Francis.

  1. Bring ’em over here…the way the Mooslims breed we’re gonna need all the opposition we can muster. At least we won’t have politicians and media types bending over backwards to appease them and they’ll assimilate into our culture with no issues.

  2. “..the cause for peace..”
    Yet again a diplomatic form of words that representatives of muslims can espouse in false magnanimity, smug in their knowledge that they and their followers have a totally different understanding of those words than the meaning assumed by leaders of western democracies and conveyed by western media.

    What is wanted is not a positive reference to “peace”, which to a muslim is all that follows the complete dominance of Islam, however vile to non-muslims.

    What is wanted is a whole host of negative imperatives – no bombing, no arson, no killing, no rape, no mob attacks, no false imprisonment, no beatings, no torture, no organ harvesting, no suppression of free speech, no false accusation of blasphemy, and above all no shariah.

    1. Hear hear! Sharia is the linch-pin to subverting the mohammedan quest and thus subsequently its achilles heel.
