Guess which one is the Lebanese Archbishop. Yes, it's the one who looks as if he has acquired a lifetime of psychological scars battling belligerent Muslims

You don't know whether to laugh or cry at this one. A harsh gust of truth from the frontlines is followed by a re-affirmation of dhimmitude and "interfaith dialogue".
The Mülheimer parish St. Mariae Geburt had a trying guest on Sunday: Archbishop Flavien Joseph Melki, high representative of the Syrian-Catholic church in Lebanon, celebrated a Pontifical mass in the parish church. Even the 81-year-old’s sermon given in French, translated into German bit by bit made it clear: here is a man who divides the world harshly in Christians and Muslims. Here the threatened minority, there an aggressive religion, whose young representatives are best converted in his view.

The Holy Mass was followed by a reception in the Catholic social centre on the church hill: here in front of 30 parish members Melki evoked the danger of a belligerent Islam, that – driven by polygamy, large numbers of children and financial support from the “oil states” – threatens to conquer European within 50 to 100 years.

Dean Michael Janssen, who later conceded that he had not known the Archbishop would express his point of view so strongly, intervened with placatory tones during the discussion round: “In Mülheim”, said Janssen, “we have a very good interfaith dialogue.”

He expressly mentioned the art project planned for the 5th of September “Angel of cultures”, in which Christian, Jewish and Muslim representatives will work together. He speaks with many Muslims, said Janssen, among whom there are moderate and fundamentalist people: "Fundamentalism is the death of any religion and, if we’re being honest, we Catholics have our fundamentalists too.”

It would have been nice to have had a bit more detail of what the Archbishop said, but the German journalist seems principally concerned with downplaying it. The article has subheadlines like "Dean warns against fundamentalism" and it's not Islamic fundamentalism they have in mind. Even the original caption was somewhat sneering: "Archbishop rants against Muslims". This has since been changed to "In Mülheim Archbishop warns about the islamisation of Europe."

The base stupidity of the journaillie, the fake apologetics and the phoney exasperation by the Deacon Michael Janßen are nauseating.

I read German, so the whole thing is worse than it looks at first sight.

The mindless, idiotic accusation that the bishop "is a man who divides the world harshly in Christians and Muslims" - when it is Muslims, Islam that divides the world in believers and unbelievers; and then the hasty preemptive dhimmitude that equals submission by claiming "we have a very good inter-religious dialogue" in Muhlheim, sick. sick. sick.

I spit on these fools.

I hope Pope Benedict realizes the truism of this bishops message.

@ davepinoy—At a private dinner in 1990, the present pope talked of ‘the slow suicide of Europe’ and the arrival of ‘unassimilable immigrants’. The author of this article argues that, by ‘unassimilable immigrants’, the pope could only have meant Muslims.

Police investigate racist rant against white people by passenger on London bus

Middle-aged black woman's racist rant lasts two-and-a-half minutes

'I hate white people. I can't stand none of you', she said

Got to smile imagining this black woman on the London bus

And so...will she have the same punishment as that British mother ..? Or, rather, will she go unpunished?

Hmm. I wonder who has more experience dealing with the reality of Islam: The Archbishop of Lebanon, or Catholic priests in Germany?

Hey, did you hear about the Catholic fundamentalist who strapped explosives to himself and killed a busload of innocent people? Yeah, neither did I.
