[On May 14, 1999, Pope John Paul II bowed and kissed a copy of the Holy Quran presented to him at the Vatican. The gesture earned him the respect and admiration of Muslims the world over. On the contrary, on Sept 22, 2006, his successor Pope Benedict XVI gave a lecture to university professors and students at the University of Regensburg in Bavaria. He cited a dialogue between a Persian and mediaeval emperor Manuel II Paleologus, which said: “Show me just what Mohammed [PUBH] brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.” The words created a furore and caused anguish amongst Muslims the world over.
On Pope Benedict’s visit to Turkey, Steve Doocy, the co-host of Fox News’ Fox and Friends, asserted: “This is the Pope’s first visit to a predominantly Muslim country. Now, keep in mind, it was just a couple of months ago that the Pope had some comments about Islam and violence. Next thing you know, Islam turned violent and essentially proved the Pope’s point.” On a report about a meeting between the Pope and Muslim envoys to address tensions over Pope Benedict’s remarks, Pat Robertson, host of the Christian Broadcasting Network Club, said: “It’s amazing how the Muslims deal with history and the truth with violence. They don’t understand what reasoned dialogue is.”]
[Quoted are just a few of the countless statements mocking and vilifying Islam and its adherents. They become all the more repulsive and shocking coming from members of the intelligentsia of the developed world. They have helped foster an image of fear and hatred against Islam throughout the West. It is tragic that these luminaries of their given fields have used their influence not to heal but exacerbate the divide.]

Why on Earth would a Pope or anyone professing to be redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ kiss this?
"And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure." (Sura 4:157)
O followers of the Book! do not exceed the limits in your religion, and do not speak (lies) against Allah, but (speak) the truth; the Messiah, Isa son of Marium is only an apostle of Allah and His Word which He communicated to Marium and a spirit from Him; believe therefore in Allah and His apostles, and say not, Three. Desist, it is better for you; Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector.(Sura 4:171)
Contrast the Son-denying "Allah" with the Biblical God:
"The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand." (John 3:35)
"Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son." (1 John 2:22)
Denying the Father and the Son is what "Allah" and its false prophet Mohammed do.
Antichrist is what they are.
