Also present at the press conference was Abdella Redouane, secretary-general of the Islamic Cultural Center of Italy who, when asked about Benedict XVI, said: “It is a privilege for us to be in Rome so close to the Vatican.

Allah in the Noble Qur’an says: “We have honoured the sons of Adam; provided them with transport on land ans sea: given them for sustenance things good and pure: and conferred on them special favours” (Sura 17:70).In the same way the Islamic Shariah treats with justice every human being and does not make any difference on the basis of race, nationality or religion. Allah the Highest said: “Oh you that believe! Stand out firmly for justice as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin …” (Sura 4:135). The understanding that Islam has about justice is that of an absolute justice without any exception, of a universal justice far from any abuse of power or oppression. Human societies lost the right path when they administered justice in a wrong way, denying it to others but their own citizens. Islam, instead, recognizes freedom of religion to all men and women. This is clearly stated in many verses of the Holy Qur’an and in hadiths of the Prophet (pbuh). Allah says: “Let there be no compulsion in religion: truth stands out clear from error …..” (Sura 2:256). And again: “If it had been the Lord’s will they would all have believed, all who are on erath! Wilt thou then compel mankind against their will, to believe!” (Sura 10:99). In accordance to this divine decree, written in the Holy Qur’an, Allah has clearly defined the tasks of His Messenger Muhammad - may Allah bestow on him eternal happiness - in the clearest terms, without any ambiguity. These tasks are explained in details to the Messenger by Allah the Highest in the following verses: “Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou are one to admonish. Thou are not one to manage (men’s) affairs” (Sura 88:21 and 22). And again : “If then they turn away We have not sent thee as a guard over them. Thy duty is but to convey (the Message) ….” (Sura 42:48). Allah says also: “The Messenger duty is but to proclaim (the Message)….” (Sura 5:99) and again: “ ….. If you do turn back, know that it is Our Messenger duty to proclaim (the Message) …..” (Sura 5:92). Allah’s Messenger - may Allah bestow on him His Blessings - always remained faithful to the commandments of the Lord, leaving to men the freedom to embrace Islam or to remain faithful to their own religion and pledging to respect their religion, and their properties.”Quotes from, “Islam’s Teachings Prohibit Terrorism, Says Imam Sheweita Comment by Doctor Jack Shepard
RM: This is hysterical! There is a striking resemblance!
You know what else is hysterical? Dr. Jack Shepard. He ran for Congress in 2004 from Italy, where he is currently hiding from the law.
