Official 'Palestinian' media calls Pope 'criminal and arrogant,' 'ignorant and stupid'

The cartoon on the left appeared in the official Hamas weekly al-Risala.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Media Watch reports that on Fatah-controlled PA TV, a Hamas religious leader called the Pope "criminal and arrogant," "ignorant and stupid," and then warned the Pope to await his punishment.

The following came from the Friday sermon by Hamas religious leader, Dr. Osama Al-Mazini:
"The second message is for the criminal Benedict the 16th, the Vatican Pope. For this ignorant and stupid Pope, who has no one to attack besides Islam and the Prophet [Muhammad], may the Creator have mercy on him and protect him. He [the Pope] characterized Islam as a cruel religion, and characterized Muhammad, may the Creator have mercy on him and protect him, as a cruel man, spilling blood, who strove to kill. This hostile Pope refuses to apologize to Muslims; and, instead of apologizing he blames the Muslims for not understanding, thereby adding crime upon crime. This arrogant Pope sees the Muslims as too inferior that he should apologize to them. To this arrogant Pope - criminal and arrogant - this message is from Allah the Elevated and the Exalted, as it was said: 'Think not that Allah is unaware of what the wicked do. He but gives them a respite until a day when eyes will stare (in terror).' [Sura14:42]"

Nice people. Why don't we solve all the world's problems by giving them a state reichlet?

Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf thinks exactly that, that all the worlds problems will be solved by giving them a reichlet, and he is not even being sarcastic.

So do Hassan Nasrallah and Fouad Siniora, one of the few things on which they agree. But what's scary about Musharraf is that the US actually regards him as an ally.

That, and the fact that he has nukes.

International arrest warrants have been requested for Joseph Ratzinger Pope Benedict XVI by Dermot Ryan, Secretary of Superstes Irenses Connubialis Probrum in UK [Survivors in the UK of Irish Sexual Abuse,] who has issued a Complaint with the Prosecutor under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court [ICC] against the above-mentioned under Article 28 Sec [b] which enacted that “a superior shall be criminally responsible for crimes committed by subordinates under his effective authority as a result of his failure to exercise control properly over such subordinates” where he “consciously disregarded information which clearly indicated that the subordinates were committing or about to commit such crimes”, which “were within the[his] effective responsibility and control of the superior” and he “failed to take all necessary and reasonable measures within his power to prevent or repress their commission or to submit the matter to the competent authorities for investigation and prosecution.” The Complaint is made under Article 27. 1, which enacted that “official capacity as a Head of State or Government ... shall in no case exempt a person from criminal responsibility under this Statute” and also for criminal policy which constitutes Crimes under the Rome Statute which set up the International Criminal Court.
As such, the Accused (mentioned above) is deemed responsible for the commission of crimes within the territories of many States signatories of the Rome Statute, in violation of Rome Statute Articles 27 1, and 28 Sec [b]. Despite the fact that the Vatican is not a signatory State, the ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute under Article 12 (2)(a) of the Rome Statute. This Article stipulates that the Court may exercise its jurisdiction if one or more States in which the conduct in question occurred has accepted the jurisdiction of the Court.
The Exercise of Jurisdiction may be activated under Article 13, with respect to a crime committed under Article 7 1. [g] “Rape or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity” and/or Article 7 1. (k) “Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health” if the Prosecutor has initiated an investigation. Dermot Ryan, in his issue of complaint, respectfully requested that such an investigation be initiated. Criminal acts are not subject to any statute of limitations in the International Criminal Court.
The complaint states that the Accused’ failure to take measures to prevent or repress was evidenced by his issue of written commands. On May 27th 2001 he ordered obedience to the 15000 words of Canon Law, the document "Crimen Solicitationis” which precluded such measures and ensured they were not taken. It imposes an oath of secrecy on the child victim, the priest dealing with the allegation and any witnesses. Breaking that oath means excommunication from the Catholic Church. At the time of filming Panorama found seven priests with child abuse
