JERUSALEM (AP) - Thousands of Muslim worshippers staged marches against Pope Benedict XVI in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza on Friday, waving green Hamas banners and denouncing him as a "coward" and an "agent of the Americans."

SO WHAT AMERICA ROCKS IDIOTS!

The demonstrations in the Middle East, as well as smaller rallies in Pakistan and Malaysia, came as Benedict invited representatives of Muslim countries to meet Monday at his summer residence, the Vatican said.

THE POPE IS CLEARLY TRYING TO
REACH OUT< APPARENTLY THAT
MAKES NO DIFFERENCE TO THESE GUYS!

The Vatican has been seeking to defuse anger across the Muslim world that followed the pope's remarks about Islam last week in Germany.

Benedict cited the words of a Byzantine emperor who characterized some of the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as "evil and inhuman," particularly "his command to spread by the sword the faith."

THESE ARE HADITHS AND NOT ALL MUSLIMS BELIEVE THAT MOHAMMED, PBUH, believed that and, yes after his death ISlam

was spread by the sword and there was blood shed by Christians

and MUSLIMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DURING THE CRUSADES>>> BUT CHRISTIANS DENOUNCED IT AND MUSLIMS DID NOT!!!!!!

The pope said Sunday that he was "deeply sorry" about the reactions to his remarks and that they did not reflect his own opinions. Earlier this week, he said his comments were open to misinterpretation and that he had "deep respect" for Islam.

He has not issued a direct apology, as demanded by Muslim leaders. Earlier in the week, protesters attacked seven churches in the West Bank and Gaza, causing little damage and no injuries.

THEY ARE VIOLENT EVIL CRIMINALS TO DESTROY ANY PLACE
OF WORSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!AND POSSIBLY HARM CIVILIANS WHO HAPPEN
TO BE PRAYING>>>

At Islam's third-holiest shrine, the Al Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem, hundreds of worshippers hoisted black flags and banners that read, "Conquering Rome is the answer." Protesters chanted, "The army of Islam will return." The march dispersed peacefully.

WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED>> APPARENTLY BLOODSHED IS THE ONLY LANGUAGE THESE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND> HOW IS THE REST OF THE
WORLD SUPPOSED TO RESPECT THAT? I AM EMBARRASSED BY THESE
FOOLS AND THEY GIVE ISLAM A BAD NAME>>

In the West Bank city of Nablus, Hamas supporters took to the streets after prayers, shouting slogans against the pope and waving Hamas flags. Raising their hands to the sky, the more than 2,000 protesters chanted: "We put up with hunger, detention and occupation, but we won't put up with the offending the prophet. We sacrifice our lives for you prophet."

Marching in the streets of Nablus, the protesters called the pope a "coward and agent of the Americans."

ONLY THEY WISH THEY COULD LIVE HERE IN THE STATES, PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE IDIOTS>

In northern Gaza, more than 1,000 Islamic Jihad supporters shouted in praise of the prophet, and waved black flags. Khader Habib, an Islamic Jihad leader, told the crowd that the pope's comments "indicate that this pope doesn't understand Islam or the prophet."

HE UNDERSTANDS ALL RIGHT< WE AS MUSLIMS MUST COME TO
TERMS WITH OUR DARK HISTORY AND RECTIFY OUR IMAGE BY
DENOUNCING IT, AND STANDING UP AGAINST IDIOTS LIKE THIS>
WE SHOULD EX COMMUNICATE THEM FROM ISLAM

In Ramallah, hundreds of Hamas supporters marched around the city center.

Hundreds of radical Islamists chanting "Down with the pope" rallied in several Pakistani cities.

More than 500 supporters of a coalition of six Islamic parties, called Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or MMA, demanded the pope's removal and accused him of supporting the policies of President Bush.

"If I get hold of the pope, I will hang him," Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, a senior MMA leader, told protesters in Islamabad, who carried placards reading "Terrorist, extremist Pope be hanged!" and "Down with Muslims' enemies!"

THESE PEOPLE ARE LIKE IN THE STONE AGE< NO WONDER 1 in 5 AMERICANS WOULDN"T WANT A MUSLIM AS HIS NEIGHBOR. THESE
COMMENTS ARE DESTRUCTIVE TO OUR IMAGE AND WE NEED TO
DENOUNCE THESE PEOPLE AS CRAZY EVERYTIME THEY MAKE THREATS
TO PUBLIC FIGURES LIKE THAT.

In Karachi, another MMA leader, Ghafoor Ahmed, accused the pope of wanting to force "Christians and Muslims against each other."

THAT"S BECAUSE THEY HAVE BACKWARDS THINKING!!! FREE SPEACH
IS A RADICAL CONCEPT FOR THEM

"We condemn the pope. We will not tolerate insulting remarks against Islam or our Prophet Muhammad," Ahmed said at a protest that drew about 300 people.

 

OH YEAH< WELL I WON"T TOLERATE REMARKS AGAINST ISLAM
EITHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DEATH THREATS TO THE POPE & VIOLENCE IS NOT THE WAY ISLAM IS TO BE PRACTICED>

Another 200 rallied in the eastern city of Lahore, while several dozen protested in Multan.

The demonstrations came a day after 1,000 clerics and religious leaders met in Lahore and called for the pope's removal and warned the West of consequences if it didn't change its stance regarding Islam.

Thursday's meeting was organized by radical Islamic Jamaat al-Dawat group, which runs schools, colleges and medical clinics. In April, Washington put the group on a list of terrorist organizations for its alleged links with militants fighting in the Indian part of Kashmir.

After the meeting, a statement was issued demanding the West "change its stance regarding Islam (or) it will face severe consequences." It did not elaborate.

ALL THE WEST HAS TO DO IS TURN OFF THE WATER FOR PALESTINE AND THEY WOULD ALL STARVE> IF ISRAEL HAD THE INTENTION OF
WIPING OUT PALESTINIANS THEY WOULD HAVE ALREADY< HAMMAS
AND HEZBOLLAH AS WELL AS THE P.L.O.
HAVE SERIOUS MISCONCEPTIOS AND SEEM TO ENJOY A SCAPEGOAT
FOR TERROR>>>>>>>>

It also said that jihad was not terrorism and that "Islam was not propagated with the sword."

 

I BEG TO DIFFER< ALTHOUGH THIS WAS NOT WHAT MUHAMMED
HAD IN MIND

Malaysia's opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party staged demonstrations outside mosques nationwide, calling for the pope to fully retract his remarks. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's largest city, some 150 party members chanted "Stop the insults" and held a banner that read "We Muslims are peace-loving people."

IF WE ARE PEACE LOVING< WE MUST STAND UP AGAINST THE EVIL PERPETRATED BY MUSLIMS IN THESE AREAS.

First of all your grammer sucks, it's "didn't have" and your spelling is

horid! So from my post you assume I am a communist? HUH????????

What I am saying is from the phrophet Jesus, P.B.U.H., we were

taught to 'turn the other cheek'. A wiser choice for Muslims would

have been to respond to his remarks with diplomacy instead of

violence. They are proving his point!  And as Muslims, we are in

need to reflect deeply about our past during the period of the

crusades. Let us follow the example of the Catholic church.  The

Church has admitted the genocides and changed their attitutes

and through time adopted a "western" approach to accepting people

of other faiths. In Ireland the Christians there are ex-communicated

because they do not accept this notion of peace and continue to

kill people. So often we are told Islam is a religion of peace. Okay,

well if we want the rest of the world to believe us, we need to step

up and make official statements against statements like those in

the above artical.

Yeah, just a spelling error. But I notice neither one of you can reply

to the post with any original ideas or comments of your own. Which

proves my point. Muslims have a long way to go when it comes to

admitting faults within our religion and dismissing the evil people

related to terror.

its sad that someone of the Popes standing would say such things. even sadder that none of his editors or writers or whoever screens his speeches, none of them picked up that this was inappropriate. one is also curious as to why the Pope chose to quote someone so ancient . what made him go so far back in   history n quote what was said so may years ago. what was the aim of all this?
