– The fear of accepting migrants is partly based on a fear of Islam. In your view, is the fear that this religion sparks in Europe justified?
Pope Francis: Today, I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam. It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.
– On April 16, you made a powerful gesture by bringing back the refugees from Lesbos to Rome. However, does Europe have the capacity to accept so many migrants ?

Here, by equivocating Christ’s call to spread the gospel – the Christian mission (which stands at the core of Western Christianity – with Jihad (which is, while commonly practiced as a physical conquest as seen by ISIS, is literally translated as “a spiritual struggle”), the pontiff tried to ease some of the stigma against Islam by likening it to Christianity.

The Washington Post expressed its doubt on Pope Francis’ attacks on the West. “Though sometimes labeled as a ‘progressive’ leader of the church, Pope Francis sounded very much the member of an ancient institution when hailing European integration. After celebrating Khan, he compared the moment to the 6th century A.D., when Pope Gregory the Great”negotiated with the barbarians.” Read more at www.inquisitr.com...
