Italy: A personal message to Pope Benedict………. Your Holiness, it is an honor to know that you always fight the good fight. But I cannot impress upon you enough that no longer can this deed be handled with mere words. Please pray for the free world, because the time has come to thoroughly defeat a legion of evil the likes of which have not been seen for a long time. Please understand why I ask this of you: If left on their own, when the Muslims are finished with the Jews, your flock is on their list as “next”.
