Ahmadinejad invites Pope to cooperation against secularism

The Iranian President called on the Pope for cooperation by “divine religions” against secularism.

The Pope preach under the crescent moon in Turkey in 2009.

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.

My comment:

It is no surprise that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad embraces the Pope. Islam stands divided, and has no central leader that keep them united.

The Pope prays together with Imams inside a Mosque in Turkey in 2009.

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.

  1. Considering that Amadinejad and the Pope believe in the same deity, this isn’t as far fetched as one could be led to believe…

    1. Dear Lars-Toralf.

      Shalom, and welcome back.

      The Pope accepting Islam as a true religion, is a fact not known to many Christians. Forget about the Catholics, who love their life in denial.

      Lets read from the official book of Catholic doctrines, Catechism of the Catholic Church, as it is published on the Vatican website.

      841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”

  2. Yes, Ivar. This is one of the things that caused me to leave the RCC…exactly what you posted..when I read it in the Catechism. My Catholic friends see nothing wrong with it.

    1. Dear Sue.

      Shalom, and thanks for this reply. The RCC and Islam have a lot in common. I will keep on exposing their plan of merging into the One World religion.

      1. The Bible says this man is an antichrist, and will lead the World towards judgment and total destruction.

        My Comment: It does remain to be seen if this man is The antichrist.

        In regards to Ahmadinejad, I should not be surprised that this man openly hates Israel. He is on the news almost everyday speaking of his hatred. I do pray that he repents, and see’s that his hate can only lead him to an eternity of suffering.

  3. Captured German war records prove that millions of innocent Jews (and tens of thousands of others) were systematically exterminated by Nazi Germany – mostly in gas chambers. These facts have been proven repeatedly through countless thesis and dissertation research papers. Virtually every PhD in the world will stake their career on these known Holocaust FACTS. Despite this knowledge, Holocaust deniers ply their mendacious poison everywhere, especially with young people on the Internet. The deniers have only one agenda – to distort the truth in a way that promotes antagonism against the object of their hatred (Jews), or to deny the culpability of their ancestors and heroes.

    The most important ME collaborator with the Nazis and an absolute hater of Jews was Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem. This man was seen and photographed with a wide-ranging group of Nazi leaders, German officials and SS officers. He was also the uncle of Yassir Arafat, another well-known hater of Jews. It seems that after the war ended badly for Husseini and his Nazi friends, Yassir Arafat continued to carry the flag of anti-Jewish hatred. This included many nefarious attacks against Jewish and Israeli targets for 3-4 decades. Perfidity and antagonism towards Jews was a mainstay of the Arafat administration (see Fatah). His mendacious actions against Jews and Israel reveal a vile hatred of all things Jewish, despite the fact that contemporary Israel occupies the same land that Jews occupied 3,000 years ago, in the kingdoms of David and Saul.

    Museums and mandatory public education are appropriate tools to dispel bigotry, especially racial and ethnic hatred. Books and films can also establish the veracity of genocides, such as recent Holocaust films. They help to tell the true story of the perpetrators of genocide; and they reveal the abject terror, humiliation and degradation resulting from such blind loathing and prejudice. We must disclose the cruelty and horror of genocide to combat the deniers’ virulent and inaccurate historical revision. By doing this, we protect vulnerable future generations from making the same mistakes.

    Whenever we stand up to those who deny or minimize genocide we send a critical message to the world. As we continue to live in an age of genocide and ethnic cleansing, we must repel the broken ethics of our ancestors, or risk a dreadful repeat of past transgressions. A world that continues to allow genocide requires ethical remediation. We must show the world that religious, racial, ethnic and gender persecution is wrong; and that tolerance is our progeny’s only hope. Only through such efforts can we reveal the true horror of genocide and promote the triumphant spirit of humankind.

    1. Dear Charles.

      Shalom, and thanks for this comment.

      A few things we can we learn for our modern history:

      1. In 1929, the Fascist leader Benito Mussolini brought the Pope back from exile, and gifted him the Vatican statehood.

      2. In 1933, the Pope makes a peace deal with Nazi-Germany, and Adolf Hitler.

      3. In 1941, the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini joins this new “peace movement”, by greeting Hitler in Berlin.

      4. In 2010, the mufti of Tehran, Mahmoud Amadinejad, hails the Pope as a potential leader of a similar new “peace movement”.

      The rule of the final antichrist will bring them all back together again. Just like when another antichrist slaughtered Jews in European cities, when His crusaders concurred Jerusalem in 1099 A.D. This so-called “Christian Kingdom” of Jerusalem lasted till 1291 A.D. The next fake “Christian Kingdom” in Jerusalem will have a “King over all religion”. This kingdom shall last only 3,5 years, and end with the coming of the true Kingdom of God when Jesus return to bring an end to all fakes and falsehood.

  4. One thing Jews have learned from 3,000 years of persecution, torture, expulsion, enslavement and genocide, is that when a nation’s or a religion’s leader threatens to destroy the Jewish people, they probably mean to follow through with the threat. At least as many innocent Jewish men, women and children were murdered in the Name of Christ (Crusades, Spanish Inquisition & English Expulsion) than by Nazis in the Shoah (Holocaust). One more thing Jews have learned is to never count on anyone’s help, including The Vatican. That is why Israel’s continuity as a Jewish homeland is imperative. There must always be a safe place for Jews. Failing that, retaliation will reduce the attacking nation (Iran) to a radioactive wastland that will not support life for 1,000 years. There will be no more trust.

    1. Dear Cweinblatt

      Shalom.

      As a believer in Jesus the Messiah, I do acknowledge that the Messiah will stand with the eternal promises to the Jewish people, given by God of Israel. The Messiah is eternal. He has no beginning, and He has no end.

      Father, Son and Spirit is One God, always in agreement.

      Many Jews do not acknowledge that Jesus is the Messiah. For Him this makes no difference. He is the Messiah, regardless if people believe in Him or not.

      Jesus is coming back to save Israel. She will be left alone, with no other hope.

      1. Cweinblatt,

        Your Comment: There must always be a safe place for Jews.

        My Comment: The bible is God’s true word. Jesus will reign forever.

        “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David … And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” (Luke 1:32-33)

  5. Well, I’m mostly pulling your chain. My point was that it is a mistake to assume something is true simply because someone wrote it in a book, or because clergy suggest it is true.

    Although I was an undergraduate Psychology major, I just missed a minor in Philosophy. The most valuable course I had in undergraduate and graduate school was Introduction to Logic. Yes, I enjoyed Epistemology a great deal as well. But no one can suggest that they understand our universe without first mastering logic. No, you don’t need a degree in Philosophy to achieve this goal. You can read textbooks, take audio courses, Internet courses, etc. But, if you don’t comprehend deductive logic, you cannot truly understand our universe. If you accept things on faith only, you are making a giant leap beyond facts, into a self-enclosed world of fiction.

    Our understanding of the universe cannot be achieved with only religion or science. Nor can it be achieved by blindly assuming the veracity of “sacred” texts. How do we know that the people who wrote them weren’t just making things up? Only by combining our assumptions with implementation of deductive logic and empirical decision-making can we truly understand our universe. If you cannot base your assumption on empirical logic, you might believe in a fairy tale.

    Has the Messiah already arrived? There is no empirical evidence to make that assumption valid. If the Messiah arrived, is it male or female? Could the Messiah be a neutral gender? Is the concept of a Messiah even valid? Why should there be a deity or a Messiah? Surely none of these assumptions are based upon empirical evidence. We might want them to be true. But, those who believe in them do so out of faith, not fact.

    So, I threw you a curve, just to say that your belief is based upon faith, not fact. That’s OK with me. I truly hope that you’re right. But what I really love about Judaism is the diminished concept of an afterlife. OK, truly devout Jews don’t question it. But most other Jews (a majority) do. Thus, the emphasis for most of us is this: Do good deeds while you’re alive, because as far as we can tell, that’s it – it’s our only shot at existence. We don’t believe that one can “make up for a wicked life” by repenting at the end of it. You have to be righteous the entire time.

    Anyway, I hope I didn’t make anyone here too angry with my comment about the Messiah being female. But, if there is going to be a Messiah, who knows…? From my experience in 57 years of life, females are at least as bright, are far more compassionate and tend to make sounder, more logical decisions than men. If I were God, I’d make the Messiah female.

    1. cweinblatt,

      Your Comment: Well, I’m mostly pulling your chain. My point was that it is a mistake to assume something is true simply because someone wrote it in a book, or because clergy suggest it is true.

      My Comment: To have faith in Jesus Christ is a beautiful thing. Once you do have that faith, and dedicate your life to having a close relationship with Christ, you will see that everything the bible says it’s true. You will also begin to feel the Holy Spirit in your life.

      The bible says: Matthew 17:20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” *end of scripture*

      And because of the faith I do have in Jesus Christ, I have seen tremendous things done in his name. But that set aside, the bible is clear that by faith alone are we justified. Romans 3 verse 28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.

      Your Comment: Our understanding of the universe cannot be achieved with only religion or science

      My Comment: Our understand of the universe can only be achieved by God, because it is he who created everything. Now, that being said while on earth we will always have unanswered questions about the universe/earth and other things, but when we are in heaven (if you accept Jesus Christ as your savior), I believe all of our questions will be answered.

      Your Comment: Has the Messiah already arrived? (and your other questions.)

      My Comment: I would recommend you pick up the bible and read it. For Jesus Christ loved us, and gave us the signs ahead to his coming. If you compare those signs in the bible to what is going on today, you will see that every world God has spoken is the truth.

      “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Luke 21:25-27

      Your comment: So, I threw you a curve, just to say that your belief is based upon faith, not fact.

      My Comment: I have faith in Christ, and he is coming very soon. That is a fact.

      Your Comment: If I were God, I’d make the Messiah female.

      My Comment: I’d say again, pick up the bible, and read it with an open heart. With all due respect, I don’t believe with all the current signs going on in the world (that were actually foretold in the bible) I don’t believe we’re at a place where we should joke about God. As a matter of fact, I don’t believe anyone should ever joke about God.

      The most important thing is: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

      I hope you consider my words cweinblatt.

      God Bless you and your family.
