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:
—1933 Redux: Vatican Signs Treaty with Terror “State of Palestine”
—Pope Francis on Charlie Hebdo Jihad: “One Cannot Make Fun of Faith”
—Pope says it is wrong to equate Islam with violence
—Pope: ‘Don’t shut door to dialogue with ISIS (Islamic State)’
—For the first time in history, Islamic prayers to be held at Vatican
—Pope Francis Sanctions Savagery

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.
