Strange as it may seem, in spite of all the violence and destruction wrought by the relentless islamicization of the West and even of recent violent attacks, we see the Bishop of Rome continuing to defy logic. Note the Vatican’s logo for the Pope’s latest adventure into Egypt.
And so we’ll have yet another photo-op assuring persecuted Christians that despite what they are experiencing, islam is really a religion of peace. Sandro Magister’s column yesterday (see here) is well worth reading. Citing data from the Pew Research Center, Magister concludes that the population of Egypt is, in fact thoroughly radicalized. Some figures from his article are relevant to this latest papal trek into fantasyland:
♦ 75 percent of the Egyptian population maintains that sharia – meaning the system of law derived from the Quran and the Sunnah – is the revealed word of God.
♦ 74 percent want sharia to be the law of the state.
♦ 74 percent want sharia to be applied not only to Muslims, but also to non-Muslims.
♦ 95 want religious judges to decide in disputes over family and property.
♦ 70 percent are in favor of corporal punishment for crimes like theft.
♦ 81 percent are in favor of stoning for those who commit adultery.
♦ 86 percent are in favor of the death penalty for those who leave Islam.

To Magister’s data, we add one citation of our own, which was just offered by a reader: From the secular site The Religion of Peace.com, the following figures of Islamic attacks on Christians in Egypt in just this month, April: 48 killed, 130 injured for the love of Allah.
It is our position that islam is part and parcel of the “errors of Russia” and that it is supported by the very person, Vladimir Putin, whom useful idiots in the west trumpet as a “Christian leader”. We will post more soon on the Putin-islam connection but for now…
We re-post some excerpts from our article from 2015, “Islam and the Errors of Russia“:
† † †
As the muslim invasion of Europe and America continues towards the islamification of the West, let’s look at the reality of islam in the light of the Fatima prophecy of the Errors of Russia.
A question was asked of me recently, “Where does islam fit in with the ‘errors of Russia’ “? If, by the errors of Russia, we understand a totalitarian, soul-destroying regime, then, islam fits the bill quite nicely. In fact, Islam and Marxism (dialectical materialism) have much in common.
“Bolshevism combines the characteristics of the French Revolution with those of the rise of Islam… Those who accept Bolshevism become impervious to scientific evidence, and commit intellectual suicide. Even if all the doctrines of Bolshevism were true, this would still be the case, since no unbiased examination of them is tolerated…Among religions, Bolshevism is to be reckoned with Mohammedanism [Islam] rather than with Christianity and Buddhism. Christianity and Buddhism are primarily personal religions, with mystical doctrines and a love of contemplation. Mohammedanism and Bolshevism are practical, social, unspiritual, concerned to win the empire of this world.” [Jules Monnerot in “Sociology and Psychology of Communism” quoted by Dr. Andrew Bostom]
In his essay, Dr. Bostom quotes Monnerot to the effect that both Communism and Islam share two major characteristics, conversion and subversion. Both demand total submission and both work tirelessly, undeterred by any adversity, in order to subvert whatever culture impedes the progress of their anti-Christian goal.
