The Iranian President called on the Pope for cooperation by “divine religions” against secularism.
The website of the Iranian presidency said last Saturday that Ahmadinejad had called for cooperation by “divine religions” against secularism.
The Vatican confirms that Pope Benedict XVI has received a letter from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The Vatican did not release the contents of the message.
But the website of the Iranian presidency said on Saturday that Ahmadinejad had called for cooperation by “divine religions” against secularism.
The website said he also thanked Benedict for his stance against a Florida pastor who had threatened to burn the Holy Quran on the 9/11 anniversary.
The pope and other Christian leaders urged the pastor to reconsider his plans, which he eventually called off.
Vatican spokesman the Reverend Federico Lombardi said the pontiff received the letter during a brief meeting with one of Iran’s vice-presidents at the end of his weekly general audience on Wednesday.

It is no surprise that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad embraces the Pope. Islam stands divided, and has no central leader that keep them united.
Since the Pope is a warm defended of Islam as a religion of “peace”, that is included in God’s plan for salvation, the Pontiff will emerge as a global leader, the World can accept as a man of “peace”.
The Bible says this man is an antichrist, and will lead the World towards judgment and total destruction.
I am sure the Vatican is ready for the final “peace mission” that will bring the Pope to the Temple Mount, where the final seat of the Pontiff will be set up.
