1031) Pope is a political figure & satisfies those who made him pope

The Pope’s remarks have made everyone angry. But it was a predictable result. The Pope had similar insulting and racist words against Islam.

No one took seriously when he was Cardinal, when he became a Pope his words have become important. . .

The Pope’s statement gives some clues about the world order wanted to be established.

The Pope provides the ideological and religious background fort the polarization campaign which was started by George W. Bush.

It is clearly understood that the real reasons behind the election of Cardinal Benedict as the new pope were not religious but political.

Vatican made a Cardinal new Pope in order to serve the role decided for itself and to act together with those who want to establish this new order.

Ali Bardakoglu, Our Directorate for Religious Affairs, naively says “If he does not apologize for his words, he cannot make any contribution to the world peace”.

OK, but who says the Pope wants to make contribution to the world peace!

We understand, when we look at the 15-centuries past of the Vatican, that the Vatican contributed to the conflicts and wars instead of contributing to the peace.

Vatican had always played a supporting and sparking role in the thousands-years wars of Minor Asia and the Middle East.

Is there any understandable reason to leave this role for Vatican?

Vatican is now an important part of the global politics. A man from the communist block had been chosen as Pope during the Cold War years and now the new Pope is most suitable man fort he new period.

The Pope Benedict is a political figure and he has tried to satisfy the demands of those who made him pope.
