Assassination plot by radical Muslims against Pope prevented


http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/assassination-plot-by-radical-muslims-against-pope-prevented/

Two Moroccan students who attended a university in the central Italian city of Perugia were expelled from the country last month after it was discovered that they were conspiring to kill Pope Benedict. One of them allegedly said he wished to “earn a place in Paradise.”

According to Italian weekly newspaper Panorama, conversations intercepted by Italian authorities led to the arrest and deportation of the two suspects.

The order for expulsion reportedly included the transcript of a conversation in which one of the students, Mohammed Hlal, said that he wished “death to the head of the Vatican City State” and was "ready to assassinate him to earn a place in Paradise."

The 26-year-old Hlal was speaking over the phone with 22-year-old Ahmed Errahmouni when he made the statements, which earned them the attention of the local police and a trip back to Morocco.

They were deemed a “threat to national security” in the document signed by the Italian Minister of the Interior, Roberto Moroni, and expelled on April 29, Panorama reported.

Thanks for your prayers.

I fear that there are more out there who hope to kill the Pope.

God knows how many Patriarchs of Constantinople have been victims of Islamists.
