The Head of Roman Catholic Church warned against treating Islam and global terrorism as equal ideas. ‘I think it is not right to identity Islam with violence," he told reporters aboard the plane taking him back to Rome after a five-day trip to Poland, where he took part in celebrating the World Day of Youth (Reuters).

This was his reaction to the recent murder of a Catholic priest by members of a Muslim radical movement, and other terrorist attacks that recently took place across Europe.  

I think that in nearly all religions there is a always a small fundamentalist group. I don't like to talk about Islamic violence because every day when I look at the papers I see violence here in Italy - someone killing his girlfriend, someone killing his mother-in-law. These are baptized Catholics," he said.

"If I speak of Islamic violence, I have to speak of Catholic violence. Not all Muslims are violent. I know it is dangerous to say this but terrorism grows when there is no other option and when money is made a god and it, instead of the person, is put at the center of the world economy," the Pope stressed.
