Outrageous Ironies In Muslim Reactions

Leonella Sgorbati

Leonella Sgorbati, 65, a Catholic nun, was murdered by two gunmen in Mogadishu. Murdered on a Sunday, in a hospital. Sgorbati was in Somalia to train nurses at a children's hospital.

Do we hear apologies from the Muslim world in regard to this singular atrocity? Do we hear condemnations of this barbarity? Undoubtedly good, decent Muslims are outraged over this, and express themselves so. But it is drowned out, as usual, by the teeming mass of ignorance and hatred that now defines the Islamic world: the Mujahadeen Army vows to murder Pope Benedict XVI; Somali cleric urges assassination of Pope; Jihadists threaten to kill all Christians in Iraq.

It is also drowned out by the predictable prattling of supposedly responsible Muslim 'leaders' who think that the words of the Pope taken completely out of context are somehow worse than the senseless murder of a fellow human being: "Morocco's King Mohammed recalled his Vatican ambassador for consultations, while Yemen's president denounced the pontiff." Turkish legislator Salih Kapusuz said Benedict's comments put the Pope "in the same category as leaders such as Hitler and Mussolini." There are major protests planned in Iran.

So Benedict should have reached out instead to Muslims, as John Paul II did? It wouldn't do him any good - John Paul II was also the target of Jihadist assassination plots. Even before Benedict made his remarks, a Turkish novelist asked Who Will Kill The Pope In Istanbul? Pope Benedict XVI too is a marked man regardless of what he says or does, he simply is an infidel and therefore fit only to die.

Where are the millions of decent Muslims who don't want this to be what the world sees when it looks at Islam?
