BROTHERHOOD BETWEEN CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS: KEY WORD OF THE MESSAGE FOR THE END OF RAMADAN

http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/07/brotherhood-between-christians-and.html

Vatican City, 18 July 2014 (VIS) – “Towards a genuine fraternity between Christians and Muslims” is the title of the message sent by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue to mark the end of Ramadan ('Id al-Fitr 1435/2014 A.D.). The document is signed by Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran and Fr. Miguel Angel Ayuso Guixot M.C.C.J., respectively president and secretary of the dicastery.
-
“Last year, the first year of his ministry, Pope Francis personally signed the Message addressed to you on the occasion of ‘Id al-Fitr. On another occasion, he also called you 'our brothers and sisters' (Angelus, 11 August 2013). We all can recognize the full significance of these words. In fact, Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters in the one human family, created by the One God”.

REALITY CHECK!!!

Contacted by AsiaNews at the See of the Chaldean Patriarchate in Baghdad, Mar Sako bitterly said that no form of dialogue is possible with the Islamists, who keep repeating, "between us there is but the sword."

Baghdad (AsiaNews) - "The situation in Mosul is tragic," said Mar Raphael I Louis Sako, Patriarch of the Chaldean Church, as he spoke to AsiaNews about what is happening in Mosul, Iraq's second largest city.
-
His Beatitude said that yesterday, the "militia of the so-called Islamic caliphate" issued a notice (pictured), distributed across the city, declaring, "Christians either convert to Islam or pay the [poll] tax" (the Jizya). Alternatively, he noted, they "can only leave the city," leaving behind everything they own, which the Islamists are seizing.
-
When Mosul fell to Islamist militias, at least 500 thousand people, Christians and Muslims, fled the city, creating a serious humanitarian, economic and political crisis.
-
The city is now under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, a Sunni jihadist group close to al-Qaeda), operating as the militia of the Islamic caliphate.

It's true. You can't make this stuff up.
-
Are the members of the "Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue" getting high on illegal substances before coming up with these statements? One would almost hope so. At least that would provide some sort of explanation.
-
I suggest that there next meeting should take place in Mosul where they can "dialogue" with the Islamists swords. That should be a short meeting.
-
Perhaps they can begin the "dialogue" by pointing out that we are "brothers and sisters" and then see what direction that "HEADS". Or they could quickly "CUT" to the chase and say how we both worship "the One God". Or they could "OFF"-er to personally deliver a message of "brotherhood" from bergoglio.
-
Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran seems to think this is quite funny becaues I see him rolling around on the floor, but I'm "DEAD" serious. Oh dear....
