About those "Fundamentalists"

Like Barack ("partial birth abortion") Obama, with whom he is quite chummy, Pope Francis simply refuses to admit that all of the terrorist violence now erupting in the heart of Europe is being perpetrated by Muslims according to the dictates of a religion Pius XI rightly called "the darkness of Islam." Francis continues to refer to these evil practitioners of Mohammed’s invented religion as mysterious "fundamentalists," having already infamously observed that "we have some — many — in the Catholic Church."
Now, what characterizes Islamic "fundamentalism"? These things among others: perpetual jihad, rape, beheading, crucifying and burning people alive, enslavement, the treatment of women like chattels, including mutilation of their genitals, honor killings, stoning and burying people alive for such offenses as adultery, the death penalty for leaving the cult or "insulting the Prophet" (even in industrialized Arab nations), laws criminalizing public manifestation of non-Muslim religions and banning the construction of churches (again, even in developed Arab nations), and, of course, innumerable massacres of innocent victims with bombs and automatic weapons wielded by Muslims who shout Allah’s name as they conduct the slaughter.
And what characterizes the "fundamentalists" of whom Francis purports to see "many" in the Catholic Church? None of these evils whatsoever, but rather strict adherence to the truth, as Francis himself made clear in addressing the issue of Muslim violence:
Fundamentalism is a sickness that is in all religions. We Catholics have some — and not some, many — who believe [they are with the] absolute truth and go ahead dirtying the other with calumny, with disinformation, and doing evil. They do evil. I say this because it is my church.
Tellingly, Francis has never distinguished supposed Catholic "fundamentalists" from "fundamentalism" in general. Thus, when he employed the term "cruel fundamentalism" to describe the Muslim perpetrators of the massacre in Brussels, he was pointedly avoiding any suggestion that Islam was behind violence. Rather, the latest massacre perpetrated by Muslims was attributed to the same generic "fundamentalism" that is a "sickness… in all religions." As Francis would have it, there is nothing, absolutely nothing, peculiar to Islam that leads to violence — even though the entire history of Mohammed’s cult is a saga of violent conquest.
Here there is a curious parallel with Obama and the leaders of European nations now under attack by Muslim terrorists: the steadfast refusal even to mention Islam in connection with violence perpetrated entirely by Muslims and precisely for the advancement of Islam in Europe. "With Allah’s help, we shall conquer you," chanted a crowd of Muslims in the German city of Duisburg. In Brussels, Muslims danced in the streets after the massacre perpetrated by their fellow Muslims. There are now some 900 "no-go" zones in European cities where Muslim dominance has effectively created Islamic mini-states throughout the EU.
The Muslim reconquest of Europe is well underway. And yet neither the Pope nor the secular authorities of the once Christian west will name the enemy that openly vows to destroy them. This is truly one of the mysteries of iniquity that characterizes perhaps the most astonishing epoch in the history of the Church. And it was all foretold in the Secret the Mother of God confided to three shepherd children in a field outside the very town named after a Muslim princess who converted to Christianity — at a time when the Church still recognized the evil of Islam and had the will to fight against it.
