Islam Wants to Convert Rome

First the black flag of the Caliphate waving over the Vatican. Then the Colosseum in flames and a sea of blood that submerges it. Finally, the announcement of the Libyan caliphate that “we are south of Rome”.

In the propaganda videos of the Islamic State there are many prophecies about the fall and the conquest of Rome. There is a long Islamic tradition aiming at Rome, “Romiyyah”, aiming to make it the fourth holiest city of Islam (after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem) and the base from which Islam will conquer the Western world.

Rome is the greatest magnet of the mystical Islamic universe.

    The current pope is a nutcase bordering on being a full blown communist. As for Italy itself, every last art gallery and sculpture will be destroyed if Islam tightens its grip on this once great nation!

      That’s what most concerns me: the loss of art, architecture, and historical treasures that the Muslims would destroy.

    By “Romiyyah” the prophecies meant Constantinople.
    Rome, Italy was an impoverished insignificant settlement in the early years of mahometanism.

    At this point, it’s a softer target than Israel.

      Soft, mushy, and welcoming muzzies into monasteries and convents. Good bye, Italia. It was nice knowin’ ya!
