“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.” – Byzantine emperor Manuel II Palaeologus.
Why do some Muslims have such an uncanny talent for proving the case of their critics? When accused of violence, they threaten violence. Better still, they engage in it. “Call us unruly and we riot,” they say, in essence. “Call us murderers, and we kill you.” Don’t they see that this makes them a joke?
The pope didn’t originate those words, nor did he openly agree with them; but day by day, muslim fanatics prove them to be true.
