POPE FRANCIS ABANDONS CHRISTIAN SYRIAN REFUGEES, TAKES ONLY MUSLIMS TO VATICAN INSTEAD
Spokesman Massimiliano Signifredi called the incident 'regrettable' - adding: 'The problem here is the three Syrians arrived after the March 20 deadline. They arrived just after the agreement between the European Union and Turkey. Mr Signifredi said: 'Our staff went to Lesbos and spoke with the people who were selected. But everything was decided by the Vatican.
CHRISTIAN BROTHER AND SISTER REFUGEES FROM SYRIA SAY THEY HAVE BEEN LET DOWN BY POPE FRANCIS AFTER HE LEFT THEM BEHIND IN A LESBOS REFUGEE CAMP DESPITE PROMISES THEY WOULD BE GIVEN A NEW LIFE IN ITALY.
EDITORS NOTE: Pope Francis, in a gesture of compassion decided to take 12 Muslim Syrian refugees back to the Vatican to live. But when it was discovered that 2 of the 12 Syrian refugees were actually Christians, and not Muslims, they were dropped like a hot potato and told they could not come even though the Vatican had promised to take them. As usual, Middle Eastern Christians get nothing while all the focus remains on the Muslims. Thats the agenda from your New World Order pope. Christians are ignored because they dont commit jihad and they are not trying to take over Europe like the Muslims are. Muslims are promoted and given preferential treatment because the NWO wants to invade as many nations as possible. And you think the Pope is a Christian? Guess again.
Roula and Malek Abo say they were two of the lucky chosen 12 refugees selected by the Vatican to be taken from the desperate camp and housed in Rome. But what seemed like the chance of a lifetime was cruelly snatched away when they were told the following day they couldnt go. Instead three Muslim families were taken.
Roula, 22, and her brother arrived on Lesbos on April 1 ten days after the controversial EU deal to return all asylum seekers arriving to Greece from Turkey.
Their application for asylum is being process and they are waiting to learn if they will be sent back to Turkey. Stuck on Lesbos, Roula told MailOnline: If they can do this for 12 people they can do it for more.
If you have promised to take people back to Italy will something like registration papers stand in your way?
Neither Community SantEgidio, the charity which organised the trip, or the Vatican would explain the selection process over which migrants were picked.
Spokesman Massimiliano Signifredi called the incident regrettable adding: The problem here is the three Syrians arrived after the March 20 deadline. They arrived just after the agreement between the European Union and Turkey.
Mr Signifredi said: Our staff went to Lesbos and spoke with the people who were selected. But everything was decided by the Vatican.
The question why the Pope took only Muslims is difficult to understand and he was suffering, I think, because he wanted to do something also for Christians as the chief of the Catholic Church. But he couldnt because there is this international agreement [with the EU].
THE VATICAN DECLINED TO COMMENT
Still reeling over her dream being so cruelly dashed, Roula had to watch the three fortunate families board a plane for a new life in Europe while she and her brother were left behind to face an uncertain future in Greece.
Pope Francis, the son of Italian immigrants to Argentina, said the decision to take a dozen to Italy was a gesture of goodwill to set an example to the world to extend the hand of friendship during Europes migrant crisis.
They are being housed in Rome by SantEgidio, which has brought 250 Syrians to Italy since March.
Roula, her brother, 28, and a third man, their friend Samir, also 28, from Damascus, say a day or so before the Pope arrived they were approached by three volunteers believed to be from SantEgidio.
She explained: They said they would take us to Italy, to pack our bags and to meet them the next day.
It was so secretive they didnt announce it to anybody and we were told to keep it a secret. It seemed so unofficial we didnt know who they were or if they would really take us, Roula added.
I thought they might be organ traffickers we had no idea.
Samir had no such doubts when he was approached, however.
I was so excited to go to Italy it was such a relief, he said. They offered me my future on a plate, and then 24 hours later they took it away. They had even told me that after a few months I could be reunited with my family and they would arrange for them to come from Damascus and join me in Italy.
BUT THE NEXT DAY THEY RECEIVED THE CRUSHING NEWS THAT THEIR PLACES WERE GIVEN TO ANOTHER FAMILY.
The Pope told reporters on the plane back from Lesbos that it had been the idea of one of his aides and that he had immediately agreed.
I felt the spirit was talking to us, he said, adding that everything was done according to the rules, with documents provided by Italy, the Vatican and Greece.
Asked why they were all Muslim, he said there was something wrong with the papers of a Christian family that had originally been on the list.
Tear down that wall Francis, or grow a pair and acknowledge to the world why there are walls.
Pope Che’ prefers people who throw homosexuals from tall buildings.
I am Catholic but consider this pope as much an enemy as any Satanist or Islamist.
The Last Pope
Remove the Vatican wall and the Pope in the Vatican.
Imagine that, a Pope who doesn’t really like Christians.
If he were true to himself, he may be considering retirement and a change of faith.
A Pope who doesn’t really like Christians, A pResident who doesn’t really like Americans. It all makes sense.
Francis openly roots for the invasion and rape Europe. He cheers the ongoing invasion of the Muslim rapist horde, calling it a “good thing” for Europe. He is an enemy and a traitor and an evil P.O.S.
We have a US president who does not like Americans.
Paired up with a pope who doesnt like Christians.
That’s because the Christian refugees have already been beheaded by those pesky Amish terrorists...
Oh Dear God in Heaven, I have never said this about another human being, but where is that Bolt Of Lightening we want you to have!!! You need to use it ...
This was a very cruel thing to do, and Catholics throughout the world have been shocked. Well, with the exception of leftist Jesuits and their followers.
Pope Francis the Egomaniac actually believes he’s going to be the leader of a one-world religion (look up URI) and he thinks this well help the Muslims want to be part of it. And as for Christians...well, frankly, he doesn’t give a darn.
Every Christian nation, every Christian church, every Christian in the West should be taking all possible means to care for Christians living in Muslim countries, Christian refugees, and their churches. Todays Christians will go down in history as the most non-supportive, uncaring Christians of all time. Jesus weeps.
Angela Merkle also seems to ascribe to the Cloward-Piven model of forcing social change.
God has given you the gift of discernment.
"Is the Pope Catholic" used to be a rhetorical question or a line from a joke. Now it's a serious inquiry, and, even as a non-Catholic, I do not like the answer.
