Vatican Jesuits offer apologia for Islamic Jihadists

In a bizarre twist, “La Civiltà Cattolica,” the authoritative magazine of the Rome Jesuits, printed under the supervision and authorization of the Vatican authorities, opens with, what Sandro Magister, in a post entitled "Jihad Finds a Strange Advocate: 'La Civiltà Cattolica'" (www.Chiesa, Nov. 8, 2006), calls "a jaw-dropping editorial on Islam." The editorial essentially surrenders to the ideological justifications for terrorism offered by radical Islamicists, and it's as if Pope Benedict never gave his Regensburg lecture. If evidence was ever needed that the contemporary Jesuit establishment was rotted to its roots, look no further.
