“On May 2, 2019, a supporter of the Islamic State (ISIS) posted an archival screenshot of a report saying that the Vatican endorses the use of force against ISIS. Therefore, the post states, ‘The Crusaders’ churches are legitimate targets for ISIS.”
The accusation against the Vatican and Christians is patently false. In fact, in 2017, the Islamic State releasesd a “propaganda poster of Pope Francis being ‘beheaded’“, despite the Pope bending backwards to defend Islam.
Attacks against Christians and Christian persecution is a longstanding evil, endemic and it is not based on anything more than Christians being regarded as Kaffirs. Even though Pope Francis is deemed to be an apologist for Islam, it is still not enough for the Islamic State. Nothing is enough for jihadists but complete surrender by infidels.
While the Islamic State makes reference to Christian “Crusaders”, the Christian Crusades happened between 1096 and 1291. Compare that to the jihad war of conquest that started in the 7th century, rampaged through Christian territories, murdered, pillaged and plundered anyone and anything in its way and still continues its vision. From Muhammad to ISIS, the 1,400 year jihad war continues to this day. There is no Christian crusade going on, only excuses to continue the endeavors of Islamic supremacists.

On May 2, 2019, a supporter of the Islamic State (ISIS) posted an archival screenshot of a report saying that the Vatican endorses the use of force against ISIS. Therefore, the post states, “The Crusaders’ churches are legitimate targets for ISIS. The Vatican has declared war on the Islamic State and supported it [this war]. Every barking hypocrite who cries crocodile tears must stick a shoe in his mouth.
