The Pope and Islam
Because of this, Muslim are now engaging in violence against Catholics (including murder) and the Pope himself has apologized. This new round of Muslim violence and angry demands, in fact, proves the Pope's point--despite his apology. Islam typically brooks no criticism and appeals to force and threats more often than to argument to establish itself. For example, Oriana Fallaci's criticism of Islam in her last two books generated numerous death threats against her and a tract calling for her beheading. This attitude embedded deeply in the very structure of the religion.
Simply look at its history. A study of Islamic history by the Egyptian scholar Mark Gabriel is what led him out of Islam--even before he heard the gospel. He discovered this in his study as a professor of Islamic history at the most prestigious Islamic university on the planet. When he announced his conversion to Christ to his own father, the man produced a gun and started shooting. By God's grace, Gabriel (who has changed his name to protect his Muslim family in Egypt) escaped and is now an eloquent writer on Islam and Christianity. See his books, Jesus and Mohammad, and Islam and Terrorism.
Perhaps the Pope should read--and heed--these books. You should.
