Pope Shooter Claims Ayatollah Khomeini Ordered the Hit

The would-be assassin who shot Pope John Paul II in St. Peter’s Square in 1981 says Ayatollah Khomeini ordered the hit.
Mehmet Ali Agca announced he wanted to be baptized Christian three years ago.

France 24 reported, via Religion of Peace:

The Turk who shot pope John Paul II in St Peter’s Square in 1981 claimed in a new book on Friday that the founder of the Iranian revolution, the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, told him to do it.

The Vatican immediately denied several assertions in the book including the claim by Mehmet Ali Agca that he had spoken of the Iranian link at his meeting with John Paul II in his prison cell.

Ali Agca, a former far-right extremist and Islamic fundamentalist, said he was “indoctrinated” in Tehran after escaping from a Turkish prison where he was serving time for killing a journalist.

At a nighttime meeting with Khomeini, Ali Agca said the Supreme Guide of the Iranian revolution told him to kill the Polish pope — who was badly wounded but survived the assassination attempt.

Turkish supporters cheered Agca when he was released from prison.

Agca was serving more than 25 years behind bars in Italy and Turkey for the plot against the pontiff and the slaying of a Turkish journalist. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)

    [Today, in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy. One is Rashad Hassan of Indian origin, who is the American ambassador to the 52-nation organization of Islamic countries. Dahlia Mujahid who writes his speech, who comes from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Just day before yesterday, another woman, an academic, was appointed in that circle. This is happening while we sit silent, and I say that as a liberal democrat, as someone who worked and campaigned for Barrack Obama.]

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy – explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world – with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran – is directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.]

    1979 article by Vernon Jarrett about Khalid al-Mansour

    Don/ald Warden

    [Before becoming a Muslim, al-Mansour in the 1960s was named Don
    Warden. He was deeply involved in San Francisco Bay Area racial politics
    as founder of a group called the African American Association. A close
    personal adviser to Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, al-Mansour helped
    the pair establish the Black Panther Party but later broke with them
    when they entered coalitions with white radical groups..

    In the mid-1970s al-Mansour met Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Tatal, who today is best known for having offered a $10 million donation toward 9/11 relief efforts in 2001 — an offer that was rejected by New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani when the prince suggested that the terrorist attacks were an indication that America “should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stand toward the Palestinian cause.” Al-Mansour’s relationship with the prince eventually led to al-Mansour’s hiring as attorney to King Saud. He has since been an adviser to Saudi billionaires who fund the spread of Wahhabi extremism in America.]

    “unless the white masses really understand, and the black
    masses really understand.. there’s going to be the largest
    bloodbath in America –

    the white people don’t feel bad, whatever you do to em they deserve
    it, god wants you to do it, and that if you cut off the nose, cut off the
    ears, take flesh out of their body.. don’t worry, gahh….d wants you to
    do it!”

    yes, there’s much more..

    but i’m afraid most of you wouldn’t believe any
    of it until you can put your finger in the wound,
    which of course will not only be way too late,
    but why history can and does repeat itself.. 🙁

    most who get it understand that the enemy within is not after US per
    se, but our future generations, and imho they have a huge head start
    considering the fact that the maddening reactionary “we the people”
    crowd talks the talk, but don’t walk the walk.. *sigh*

    ie: where is the TEA PARTY??

    bg====== Our side has a bad habit of missing the boat. Sometimes I think they are just plain blind or stupid or both.

  • Economan

    Years ago I thought he said the Soviets ordered the hit..?

  • Marsh626

    Turks are such barbarians. Why on Earth are they still in NATO? And why do so many Western leaders like Obama support their entry into the European Union?

    well, i keep informing everyone i can, but no one seems to listen..

    bottom line reason is:

    they heart Hitler et al ~ ie:

    “Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.”

    ~ David Rockefeller

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to restore
    a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar Republic. In
    fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not exactly in
    the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and now, fifty years
    later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless, the Western World
    did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though a fascist and a
    totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet dictators today,
    as someone who leaves the established order in place.

    ~ Barack Obama

    [“It is difficult now to put oneself in the shoes of who was making
    decisions back then,” Berlusconi said of Mussolini’s support for Hitler.
    “Certainly the (Italian) government then, fearing that German power
    would turn into a general victory, preferred to be allied with Hitler’s
    Germany rather than oppose it.”

    Berlusconi added that “within this alliance came the imposition of the
    fight against, and extermination of, the Jews. Thus, the racial laws
    are the worst fault of Mussolini, who, in so many other aspects, did
