Pope Benedict arrived in Lebanon today as violent protests swept across the Middle East.

Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Lebanon today and urged peace at a time of great turmoil in the Middle East. The trip will take the pope to the nation with the largest percentage of Christians in the Middle East — nearly 40 percent of Lebanon’s 4 million people, with Maronite Catholics the largest sect.

Violence broke out in Tripoli as Pope Benedict arrived.
Hundreds of protesters set alight a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Hardee’s restaurant in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday, witnesses said, chanting against the pope’s visit to Lebanon and shouting anti-U.S. slogans.

  5. I hope he wasn’t expecting to get a bucket of chicken.

  6. Does the Pope really think that his visit to the Middle East will promote peace?

  7. It’s a waste of time, go back to Rome your Eminence please!

  8. Cock crowing chicken sacrifice is biblically appropriate in a land that denies Christ, but it is also a sign of a pending disaster.

    that aside, i now believe Frank Marshall is the real
    American father i suspected he had, else he would
    not have been qualified to run for the Presidency..

    btw, the Arab Spring is literally burning and Obama is
    twitting about, who else but his poor pitiful self, call
    me shocked.. /s/


  10. Just what the world needs to trigger Armageddon….as Iran perfects the atomic bomb….and the Islamic world all in a rage…the potential for the Pope’s guard to be overrun by an angry mob of Islamists and his head cut off and stuck on a post…..I congradulate the Pope’s sense of timing and his courage to follow in the footsteps of his Master…..Cue Dr. Strangelove…> http://youtu.be/JlSQAZEp3PA

  11. OT

    Bob Beckel and Ed Rollins just said this was a week for Obama.

    THIS IS OBAMA’S WEEK, REALLY? Have they been living in the same world as me.

  12. I couldn’t believe what came out of the mouth of BeckEL and Rollins, THEY SAID THIS IS OBAMA’S WEEK. UNDER WHAT ROCK DID THESE TWO JUST CRAWL OUT OF.

    as this is happening: Obama Doctrine Spreads


  13. @#6

    Christians throughout the region are under attack…He is saying to them “Be Not Afraid”

    I am Catholic and have been praying for Pope Benedict…His courage & message will soothe his frightened flock throughout the region.

    That is why he is there….That is why he sits in St. Peter’s Chair.

    What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31

  14. 1. Good luck your Holiness and may your efforts be successful. Please take care.
    2. For those wondering whether a Hardees ‘monster burger’ was halal, I think that we now know.

  15. Honey, we’ll be eating leftover camel dung again!

    [“The U.S. President, Barack Obama, has concealed the true leader of the
    Muslim Brotherhood and these days it is showing no shame with its undue
    pressure on the junta to leave it that way to the Muslim Brotherhood.” To
    speak thus is a liberal parties close to the Egyptian activist who organized
    the first demonstrations in Egypt believe that they can transform their
    country into a democracy.

    The activist, who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals, continues the
    conversation with a group of Western journalists flocked to an impromptu
    press conference just off Tahrir Square where Salafis are gathering to
    demand that the military junta to hand over the country Their candidate,
    Mohammad Morsi. “The President of the United States has hijacked the
    revolution and was diverted into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood”
    continues the representative of Egyptian liberal parties. “The more time
    passes the more it becomes clear that from the beginning of Barack
    Obama’s plan was to give Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood and we prove
    it is that it is exerting tremendous pressure on the junta to recognize
    bites as the winner of parliamentary elections, even before the Election
    Commission to issue its verdict.“]

    Obama : 9/11

    [Now it’s learned that President Obama appeared on the DJ Laz Morning
    Show in Miami, FL and, although it was his first opportunity to speak
    publicly on the anniversary of 9-11, he spoke of the Miami Dolphins, he
    spoke of College Loan reform, he spoke of his campaign, but he left out
    the day that changed America forever.]

    Zawahiri : 9/11

    [Al-Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has confirmed the death of his
    deputy Abu Yahya al-Libi, who was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan
    this summer. The video confirming his death was released on jihadist
    forums to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary.]

    Arab Forum : 9/11

    [Not only is Barack Obama violating his pledge not to campaign on 9/11,
    but he is also using the day to issue greetings to the Arab Forum on Asset
    Recovery, seemingly oblivious to the importance and solemnity of the day,
    as well as the context of his message.]
