VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – A Roman Catholic cardinal has caused an uproar at the Vatican by screening a spurious YouTube video that makes alarmist predictions about the growth of Islam in Europe.
The seven-minute clip, called “Muslim Demographics,” was the talk of an international gathering of bishops on Monday, two days after Cardinal Peter Turkson screened it during a free discussion period.
Turkson, a Ghanaian who is based in the Vatican and is president of its Council for Justice and Peace, sparked consternation among his fellow bishops over the clip.
“As we were arriving this morning I was asked several times ‘Who planned it? Whose was it? Who is behind it?” Father Thomas Rosica said at a briefing for journalists, who are not allowed to attend the synod sessions, the first since the screening.
He said the clip had sparked “the most animated” discussion so far at the three-week conference, and one bishop said he would rebut Turkson by presenting a report with contrary data.
Here’s the video, directionally correct as there are Western cities succumbing to Islamic immigration and breeding, but the data figures presented don’t add up. Apparently the video was too scary for al-Reuters to link to or include in their article.
Speaking of “Muslim scare” statistics, terror-linked CAIR has for years repeated there are 8 million Muslims in the U.S., That’s just one million fewer than the figure stated in the video that was posted on Youtube years after anti-jihadists debunked CAIR’s propaganda (see The 8-Million Muslim Lie). The unindicted co-conspirator CAIR has also recently reported the following “Muslim scare” stats:
Lest Reuters or the cardinals in the Vatican or anyone else be in denial, one need look only as far as Belgium where:
As Belgium-based Armenian Samvel Avanesyan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, one of the central districts of Brussels Sint-Jans-Molenbeek had only Muslim candidates.
The photos of the election campaign posters he took showed the true situation. “Either Jalal, or Husein, or Muhammad will win the elections. That’s the true image of Europe’s future,” he said.
Let the cowtowing begin in Vatican City.
