Nice work Al Qaeda, prove the pope wrong.

Above is a picture of an Al Qaeda linked group burning a figure of the pope in a demonstration in Basra. And what, exactly, are they protesting? Being called violent.

So the pope quotes a centuries-dead emperor saying that Muslims spread religion using violence. The pope then clarifies his statement by saying that this is not his opinion, he is only quoting someone else. In response to being called violent, the group releases a statement that says, in part, "We will break up the cross...the only thing acceptable is a conversion [to Islam] or the sword." And figuring that words weren't enough to show exactly how non-violent they really are, they burn an effigy of the pope.

Nice comeback guys.

That's like Bill Clinton saying "I am not unfaithful! Stop saying that, or...or I'll sleep with your wife too!"
