Cardinal criticises Muslim 'silence'

April 11, 2004


The head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales has echoed criticism of Muslim leaders for not doing enough to denounce acts of terrorism. They're not going to.  Their allah does not allow it

Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor told the GMTV Sunday Programme he agreed with comments made by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey.

Last month, Lord Carey said not enough moderate Muslims condemned attacks carried out "in the name of Allah". Their Koran justifies those acts

Since then, Muslim leaders have urged mosques to help police fight terrorism.

When Lord Carey said too few Muslim leaders clearly condemned the evil of suicide bombers, Muslim leaders accused him of "religious prejudice". 

Building bridges

But the cardinal said: "I think what he said was fundamentally true."

"He had highlighted something that needed to be highlighted."

He said the former archbishop, who had made his comments on the eve of a seminar between Christians and Muslims in New York, had contributed a lot of his life to building bridges between the two faiths. There can be no such thing.  The New Testament says no man can be saved without the Son of God. The Koran teaches that the Son of God is an abomination.  To think and teach that such huge differences won't cause havoc is a form of self-denial.  The two cannot be mixed together, but they can be separated.

The true Lord blesses the nations who choose Him.  But WOE unto them if they become 'fat', and then deny Him.

Cardinal Murphy O'Connor also called on the West to tackle the gross poverty and inequality which was the root cause of terrorism.  That's a lie.  Words of fire creates 'terrorism' [Murderers].  That is actually an insult -- to those who are 'poor', and yet, would NEVER EVER commit such an evil act as murder.

"If the western world were to devote itself in a very real and sacrificial way to helping the two thirds of the world and especially those parts of the world that live in gross poverty, and did it in a way that actually denied themselves, then I think we'd have a more peaceful world."   It is NOT about the money

Mal 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat [higher understanding of righteousness] in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Psa 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.

He said part of the terror threat came out of countries that felt they had not been treated justly.  A common lie! The hate-filled books that many in the Islamic world feed to their young is the cause...and their Koran is the root. [SEE: Out of the mouth of allah]

They have not been 'just' with their own, for teaching their own young such things. Murphy O'Connor took on the responsibility to put a stop to it. 

2Cr 10:4 The weapons [Scriptures] of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;

Hbr 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Lord Carey caused outrage with his lecture in Rome last month when he said regimes in Islamic countries were often authoritarian and committed to power and privilege.

Muslim leaders

He added people looked to Muslims to condemn suicide bombers and terrorists who destroyed innocent lives.

But apart from a few courageous examples, very few Muslim leaders clearly condemned the evil of suicide bombers, he claimed.  That is because they know their Koran. The Koran breaks ALL humanitarian laws that the U.N. claims to be upholding. One Bali bombing 'terrorist' argued with a Muslim judge over the Koran. That Muslim judge gave the death penalty....while at the same time....denying their Koran commands the slaying of 'infidels'.  It's ALL lies people! And lies DESTROY!  They do nothing but bring destruction.

Muslim Council of Britain secretary general Iqbal Sacranie has said he was dismayed by Lord Carey's comments.

Speaking last month, he said: "One is surprised to find Lord Carey recycling the same old religious prejudice in the 21st Century." Then expose allah's very own words. That will expose the truth about what is really going on.  SEE} Out of the mouth of 'allah' and then ask yourself..."Why does the Islamic world keep quiet?"  Their Koran will tell you why!

The media often ignored statements condemning terrorist acts, Mr Sacranie added. That does not put a stop to the factory that is spinning out murderers.

Soon afterwards, the Muslim Council of Britain took the unprecedented step of writing to every mosque, urging people to help in the fight against terror.

What good is that?  When their allah says different?  The 'terrorists' are not going to listen to a single word they say.  They're going to listen to their allah.... and the Islamic world will continue to keep silent.
