Moroccans Plotted to Kill Benedict

ADNKronos reports:

Two Moroccan terrorist suspects deported from Italy last month were allegedly plotting to kill Pope Benedict XVI, Italian weekly Panorama claims in its latest issue to be released on Friday. Mohammed Hlal and Errahmouni Ahmed were students at the University of Perugia until their repatriation to Morocco on 29 April.

“Hlal wanted to kill the Vatican’s head of state (the pope), saying he was ready to assassinate him and gain his place in paradise,” Italy’s interior minister Roberto Maroni wrote in the expulsion order authorising Hlal and Ahmed’s deportations, cited by Panorama.

Anti-terror police in Perugia intercepted Hlal discussing his plans to carry out attacks and readiness to obtain explosives for the attacks during a series of tapped telephone conversations, according to Panorama.

Will Someone Lose an Ear? UK Athiest Plots to Arrest Pope Benedict XVI

Thirty pieces of Silver?  TimesOnline reports:

Richard Dawkins, the atheist campaigner, is planning a legal ambush to have the Pope arrested during his state visit to Britain “for crimes against humanity”.

Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author, have asked human rights lawyers to produce a case for charging Pope Benedict XVI over his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church.

The pair believe they can exploit the same legal principle used to arrest Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, when he visited Britain in 1998

What we need is a “Reverse Reformation!”

Zenit reports:

What Britain needs now is the religion it lost at the reformation, says Andrew Thornton-Norris in his new book The Spiritual History of English. He says that only the Catholic Church is able to resist the “dictatorship of relativism.” Only it can provide once protestant countries such as Britain and America with the underlying sense of values that they have lost, and revive their cultures with it.
