Pope Condemns Strasbourg Jihad Massacre – Never Mentions Islam As Root Cause


Why do non-Muslim authorities even bother to issue these condemnations? Did anyone seriously think that Pope Francis was in favor of this massacre?

These condemnations are just empty posturing and virtue-signaling.

Meanwhile, Pope Francis studiously avoids any mention in his statement of the motivating ideology behind the attack.

He cannot, of course, take any notice of it, for he is on record saying that “Muslim terrorism does not exist,”  and has been praised by Islamic authorities for defending Islam.

“Pope Firmly Condemns Shooting in Strasbourg Christmas Market,” by Deborah Castellano Lubov, Zenit, December 13, 2018:

…To His Excellency
Archbishop Luc RAVEL, CRSV
Archbishop of Strasbourg – STRASBOURG

It is with sadness and concern that His Holiness Pope Francis learned of the attack that took place last night at the Christmas market in Strasbourg, which caused several casualties. Pope Francis again expresses his firm condemnation of such acts. He shows his compassion especially to the affected families and to all those affected by this attack, assuring them of his prayers. While entrusting the deceased to God’s mercy, the Holy Father has a special thought for the professionals and the volunteers who take care of the wounded. As a pledge of consolation, he implores an abundance of divine blessings on the victims, on those who assist them and on all the French people.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin
Secretary of State
