Vatican calls on Muslim leaders to condemn Christian persecution in Iraq
The Vatican has called on Muslim leaders to denounce unambiguously the persecution of Christians and Yazidis in Iraq â€“ and hinted that it is considering breaking off dialogue with Islamic representatives if they fail to do so.
In a statement on Tuesday, the department in charge of inter-religious dialogue said: "The dramatic situation of the Christians, the Yazidis, and other minority religious and ethnic communities in Iraq demands that religious leaders, and above all Muslim religious leaders, people engaged in inter-religious dialogue and all people of good will take a clear and courageous stance. All must be unanimous in their unambiguous condemnation of these crimes and denounce the invoking of religion to justify them."...
reading The Guardian article brought this to mind.
Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire wrote: Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
Of course the Muslim leaders are not going to condemn Christian persecution in Iraq because the Koran commands all Muslims to kill the infidels who according to the Koran are the Jews, Christians and all Non Muslims.
