In an act of retaliation to the Pope’s comments concerning the Islam, an Italian Nun was murdered in cold blood in cold blood. The Nun was working at a children’s hospital in Mogadishu, Somalia. Her bodyguard, and who in their right mind would ever imagine a Nun needing a bodyguard, was also murdered in this horrific attack.
To make it worse, Islamic leaders in Somalia are inciting the population saying such calming things such as “They insult the Muslim world, kill Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, their leader is (U.S. President George W.) Bush and the Pope is part of it.”Ã‚
How can we have a reasonable dialog in this part of the world when the leadership is bent on misinterpreting every statement and trying to create war at every opportunity?
An Italian nun was shot dead at a hospital by Somali gunmen Sunday, hours after a leading Muslim cleric condemned Pope Benedict XVI for his remarks on Islam and violence.
The nun, who was not immediately identified, was shot in the back at S.O.S. Hospital in northern Mogadishu by two gunmen, said Mohamed Yusuf, a doctor at the facility, which serves mothers and children. The nun’s bodyguard and a hospital worker were also killed, doctors said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, and it was not clear if it was directly linked to the pope’s comments. Two people had been arrested, said Yusuf Mohamed Siad, head of security for the Islamic militia that controls Mogadishu. via the AP
