Islamic Outreach, Part LXXVII

From an earlier post on this blog:

Pope Francis spoke to the diplomatic corps and amongst other things, said, "Hence it is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions, and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam."


Four people have been arrested over alleged threats made by jihadists to kill Pope Franics.
The arrests, made in Italy and Kosovo, were conducted by anti-terror police who had been monitory a "highly dangerous group" on social media.
All four were Kosovan nationals said to have links to Syria.
Police said threats had been made warning Pope Francis "would be the last Pope".

There were also threats made against the ex-US ambassador in Kosovo and praise for the Paris terror attacks which left 130 people dead.
The arrests followed raids in the Italian cities Brescia, Vicenza and Perugia as well as Kosovo.
Police said "the [alleged] terrorist team propagated the ideology of jihad through social networks".
The alleged 'ringleader' of the group is believed to have lived in Italy before being arrested in Kosovo.
ISIS has threatened the Pope's life for months, with the Islamic fanatics accusing him of being the 'bearer of false truth.'
