An Islamic plot to kill the Pope during his US visit was foiled by the FBI — the report described it as a “detailed homeland attack which included multiple attackers, firearms, and multiple explosives, targeting a foreign dignitary at a high-profile event.”

The Pope is a premium target of the Islamic State, despite the Pope’s dhimmitude and submission to Islamic supremacism. It doesn’t much matter how much he submits, they will go after him because he is iconic of Christianity, despite all he has done for the jihad cause:

PHILADELPHIA — A new report says authorities foiled an alleged plot against the pope that was set to take place while he was visiting the U.S.

ABC News reported Tuesday that the FBI “quietly” stopped a would-be ISIS-related attack last month. In the alleged plot, the suspect, who was a minor, was inspired by the terrorist group over social media to carry out the crime.

“The minor was inspired by [ISIS] and sought to conduct a detailed homeland attack which included multiple attackers, firearms, and multiple explosives, targeting a foreign dignitary at a high-profile event,” read a joint intelligence bulletin by the FBI and Department of Homeland issued to law enforcement across the country on Aug 14., according to the report. ABC News adds the “foreign dignitary” mentioned in that bulletin was Pope Francis.

The boy has been charged with attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization and attempting to provide material support to terrorist activity, ABC News reports.

The report does not name the teen nor does indicate whether authorities had identified the suspect. Sources told ABC News that the boy’s plans were merely “aspirational,” and that no threat was imminent.

The pope is set to visit the U.S. next week, ending his stay in Philadelphia. Law enforcement officials said Monday there is no “no specific, credible threat” to the pope during that time.

    Pope Francis is the False Prophet of the Antichrist.

      Being a peacekeeper for Christ may be a station of high naïveté in this case but it hardly qualifies for your vitriolic title. Perhaps your bias against Christians has slightly inflamed your rhetoric.

          If I want spam I think there’s a can of it with my survival food.

          You want to spam a website, at least do it with some class. Witness:

          Bert’s
          Superb Barbeque Sauce

          6
          X Recipe

          12 oz. Red wine vinegar – Comes in 12 oz. bottles

          3 cups water

          ¾ cup Brown sugar The darker the
          better, it provides molasses

          6 TBL Yellow prepared mustard

          1 TBL black pepper – I use my mill and
          grind it fresh and fine

          3 TB Hickory smoke salt*

          1 ½ tsp. Cayenne pepper

          6 thick lemon slices – Use 3 large lemons,
          remove the seeds

          1 ½ lb. of finely chopped red onion

          3 Sticks butter (1 ½ cups)

          3 cups ketchup. Don’t be cheap, use
          Heinz 57

          ¾ cup Worcestershire sauce, Lea &
          Perrins, of course

          In a saucepan, add the butter and bring up to simmer. Add the chopped onion and
          sauté for several minutes – until the butter has gone from somewhat milky and
          back to more clear, this indicates the excess moisture from the onions has been
          cooked off. Next add brown sugar and let
          it blend and simmer, I believe adding the ingredients in this order caramelizes
          the onions – anyway it works well. I
          usually blend the mustard with the water before adding them, it lets me
          thoroughly stir the mustard into solution before going in the boil and the
          water lets me get all the mustard off of the spoon between measures –again,
          works well. Add vinegar, water, mustard,
          pepper, salt, cayenne, lemon and simmer for 20 minutes or longer.

          Combine the ketchup and Worcestershire and then add to the mix. Bring to a boil
          while stirring and remove from heat.

          Discard the lemon rings.

          Makes about 3 quarts. In the fridge it
          keeps for months and months. I’ve never
          had any go bad. I find it convenient to
          make it well ahead of time and separate the task of making Bert’s from the task
          of grilling. I never let myself run out.

          Most awesome on ribs!!! Especially
          infidel pork!

    • No he’s not!!! False Prophet, Beast, Antichrist all Islam…Catholicism is none of it!!! That’s a Ellen G. White lie!!

    • romain reuter

      I disagree with that. The Pope is a weak and foolish man, but he is no prophet at all. The prophet of the Antichrist is undoubtedly Muhammad, the murderous and warlike prophet of islam!
      And don’t know about you, guys but there are more and more accounts in the media and in the Internet, where Jesus Christ (!) is appearing out of thin air to muslims, inviting them to christianity. Or sometimes it happens in dreams also. Those muslims were often on their way to Hajj and were very bellicose and anti-christian during their entire life as a muslim. They immediately leave islam and have themselves baptized into christianity. This already happened to many muslims and even to muslim terrorists. Those ex-muslims are today among the toughest and uncomprosing enemies of islam.
      Can something like that be actually true? Or are they just inhaling too deep the smoke of their unhealthy shishas (water pipes)?
      Google with: christ jesus appearing muslims

        In a secular world like ours, it’s difficult to think of miracles, even for pious people, and I would even say the clergy. But something very special is happening in our world while we remain unaware of it.

  • Globalfirm:humanrights&ecology

    I think there’s only one solution: I need to become king of the world.
    Let’s face it: the only reason we haven’t eradicated Islam & instead are subject to increasing Shariaization of our lives is people’s theism: Christianity trying to profile itself as undisputed, undefeatable love-power, Chrislam & Islam.
    The polish pope Paul before-before the current pope made a disastrous brainwash indoctrination that mislead many by kissing the Koran like as if to worship that the figures Jesus or Mary are being mentioned in some way in it, before being shot by an alleged Muslim.
    Protecting Muslim refugees reactively without discriminating against their religion is unsustainable short-term protection sabotaging our military. Creating a proactive culture of discrimination against Islam protects human rights sustainably in the long term militarily, to establish the rule of ethics: human rights, ecology, atheism, globalism, English & animal rights. 

    To those who surveil this website, are new to this topic, have been mislead by pro-Islam indoctrination or are potential apostates from theism:
    1.: Islam is NOT a universal, human rights respecting ideology.
    2.: Humanity needs to come to terms with Muhammad’s unchangeable command to sadism through Jihad-terror & Sharia-tyranny against atheists & with Muhammad emulated pederasty, mythology found enslavement of Africans, crucifixions, torture, child genital mutilation & sadist halal-slaughter.
    3.: Humanity needs to learn that the genocide of Armenian non-Muslims in the 1. world war & genocide of non-Muslims in west & east Europe (Germany, France, Poland, Ukraine…) in world war 2 were participated & led by Jihadi-‘Nobel prize-winner’-Arafat’s uncle who was appointed ‘Grandmufti of Jerusalem’ Amin El-Husseini who was stationed as General in Smyrna after joining the Armenian genocide by the Turks, ‘the Ottoman empire’ joined by Germany & later formed the Muslim Nazi SS-division while organizing the slaughter of non-Muslims with the Nazis. After the war he lived in France.

    Mr. Cohen seems to have lost his head, figuratively for now at least:

    Later, who knows with all of the ISIS scum he wants to let in.

  • wilypagan

    It is called karma, Pope Francis.

  • VLParker

    Will this dhimmi fool learn anything from this plot? Nope.

  • Rocinante44

    the Federal Bureau of Islam is a patsy of the muslim president. i don’t believe a word of this, unless the pope’s a muslim

  • Po Tato

    I have a very hard time believing that FBI actually foils islamic plot to kill the Pope

    FBI is one of the many US government agencies that are being used by the moslem sympathizers of the Obama administration to turn USA into an islamic country!

  • Marx

    Maybe they should have let them kill the pope, i know it sounds evil, but it will show how violent Islam is, although I’m sure apologist will say its one man’s doing.

  • romain reuter

    Pope Francis is a gullible fool, because, a few years ago, he said:” if you study islamic scriptures seriously you can immediately see that in islam there is no place for terror”. Now he is calling on every catholic parish to take in as many refugees as possible and is unable to recognize the enormous dangers that this islamic mass-invasion of Europe comprise for his catholic Church.
    All this is absolute foolishness!
    I am a roman-catholic myself, but this Pope is the wrong man, at the wrong place, at the wrong time to govern the catholic Church during these dangerous times!

    • Jeff Simon

      I likewise am Roman Catholic but I will not follow this Socialist Dhimmi Pope.

  • Bo Wetstone

    too bad. should leave well enough alone- the pope is in bed with Obama and the muslim brotherhood

  • Pope Francis is one of the greatest protectors and supporters of Islam. Why would the Islamists want him dead?

  • Charles Martel

    The fools don’t even realize this black, last pope, is on their side.

  • bill reitzes

    Too bad, that the plot was discovered.
    Perhaps this would have woken up the sleeping Christians worldwide.

  • Joy Beum

    Why would they want to kill him? He’s their new best friend.
