Agca flew on Monday evening with an airliner Alitalia, accompanied by two police officers from Rome to Istanbul.
Rome (kath.net/KNA) Italy has expelled the Pope assassin Ali Agca and sent him back to Turkey. According to Italian media (Tuesday) reports, Agca flew last eve on a scheduled Alitalia accompanied by two police officers from Rome to Istanbul. Agca had put flowers on the grace of Pope John Paul II (1978-2005) on Saturday in Rome in St. Peter's Basilica. A Roman judge justified the expulsion of the 56-year-old Turk, according to the reports, that Agca's situation applies to the so-called Schengen States and is an undesirable person until 2016 and does not have a valid visa.
Agca had shot John Paul II on May 13, 1981 to St. Peter's Square and seriously injured him. The reason is indeed still unclear. Many observers suspect perpetrators in the former Communist Eastern Bloc. The Pope visited Agca 31 years ago, on December 27, 1983, in the Roman prison Rebibbia and forgave him.
Last week, Agca entered Italy in unexplained circumstances. After leaving St. Peter's Basilica, the Italian police arrested him. The Vatican announced that Agca could enter St. Peter's Basilica without problems, since the Vatican has no case against him pending. According to media reports Agca claims to have been brought by car from Austria to Rome.
An Italian court had sentenced him to life imprisonment after the attack, but pardoned Agca in 2000. After his return to Turkey he was arrested again because of his involvement with the right-wing Turkish "Grey Wolves"; thus for the murder of a journalist in 1979, he served another sentence till 2010. video document: The assassination of Pope John Paul II 1981 (engl.). film about Ali Agca (C) 2014 CBA Catholic News Agency.

Italian press report has claimed that Islamist terrorists were preparing to assassinate Pope Francis - Vatican spokesman Lombardi: "The Vatican does not harbor special concerns in this direction"
Vatican City (kath.net/KNA/red) The Vatican has denied a report according to which Islamist terrorists were preparing an assassination attempt on Pope Francis. This lacks foundation, in the words of Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi. "There is nothing to be taken seriously. The Vatican does not harbor special concerns in this direction," as the media quoted him on Tuesday.
On Monday, the Italian daily newspaper "Il Tempo" spread rumors, that fighters of the terrorist militia "Islamic State" were planning an attack on the Pope. Referring to Israeli sources, it was said that their leader, the self-styled "Caliph" Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had ordered attacks in Europe and in particular against Francis as "the greatest representative of the Christian Religion" and "support of false truth".
Currently, the jihadists fighting in Syria and Iraq, are coming to Italy, militia mingled with the numerous refugees coming across the Mediterranean. Last week the Italian media reported that Italy is reinforcing its security measures. But a concrete suspicion of terrorism did not exist.
During the general audience on 13 May 1981 in St. Peter's Square Ali Agca, surrounded by about 15,000 people, made an attempt on John Paul II. The Pope barely survived. There is still nothing certain known about the actual motivations and instigators of the Turkish-Muslim assassin. This assassination-Shirt by Pope John Paul II. (Rome Reports, Eng.)

Hungary Invokes Christian Roots and Sovereignty -- Media Silence about "Assassination" attempt on Orban and Expulsion of World Monetary Fund
Whether backbenchers in parliament or ministers, the messages with which citizens are "happy" in the mass media are often filled at those times as well as irrelevant heated discussion is followed with irrelevantly worded messages. It will be reported for days. But if a European nation manages to gets released from the stranglehold on the International Monetary Fund, no one talks about it. Since it may even happen that the Prime Minister of this country is just as involved in a strange "accident", which resembles more an assassination attempt, and still no one is talking about it. It might be thought that such a financial sensation and a "assassination" are interesting and important, especially when the 1001th sham fight among politicians takes place.
The selective secrecy of the information obligation
Hungary has succeeded recently, to be rid of the by no means altruistic care of the International Monetary Fund. Whose representatives were asked to pack their bags and leave Budapest. Hungary is ahead of schedule, with the year-end loan payment of the 20 billion dollar loan taken out by the previous Socialist government. The country on the Danube and Tisza has maintained its currency and has not joined the euro zone. The government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban is determined to restrict the economic, financial and monetary policy in the "house" and not to be dictated by international, opaque boards whose interests lie elsewhere. This line does not seem to work so bad, if it makes it possible to repay large loans even ahead of time such as the International Monetary Fund. Economic and monetary sovereignty are of course not desirable with the powerful who control Europe and determine the economic and fiscal policies of EU Member States. Not without reason was Hungary for some time under continuous-media bombardment "by the European media regime" (Paolo Deotto). Hungary is represented in a distorted light and the democratic government, as a bunch of crazed and dangerous demons that threaten the country's democracy and the opposition is silenced. At least the same or similar sounds pretty unanimous chorus. Even in the German media it has already been eagerly reported that an alleged mass exodus of the intellectual elite is, almost hastily fleeing Hungary, "frightened of the authoritarian rule of the government".
Nevertheless, even the media have to Boys Choir, sometimes even if grudgingly admit that Hungary experienced an unexpected growth.
Hungary's "crimes" against the "sacred cows" of the EU's powerful
The reigning Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has committed some serious crimes against the "sacred cows" of the EU. He has brought the central bank of the country back under the control of the Hungarian state. He urged the representatives of the International Monetary Fund to leave Hungary. He left the Hungarian Parliament to adopt a new constitution, which refers to the Christian roots of the Hungarian nation. This is for the really powerful in Brussels and Strasbourg, the flagships figures today who are [child molester] Daniel Cohn-Bendit, a single horror. They have responded since early 2012 with an international media campaign, which aims to demonize Hungary in public opinion. The aim of the media attack is especially the Prime Minister Orban. If you read some media report, you may think Orban had come to power in a violent coup. In reality, he was elected into office in democratic elections by the majority of his people. Similarly, the new constitution was in compliance with all constitutional procedures implemented by a regular parliamentary vote.
Accident or Assassination? - Parallels to Alexander Dubcek and Lech Kaczynski
But a country that relies on a new constitution based on its Christian roots, but says not a word about "gay rights", had to be lavished with indignation by the media makes of hearing between Vienna and Paris, Copenhagen and Rome. The same press that leads a media campaign against Hungary for more than 18 months, but knew very little about the remarkable debt relief from the International Monetary Fund and Hungary to report the associated expulsion of the international organization. Nor about the strange "car accident" in the end of July, in which Prime Minister Orban was involved. Orban was just to visit in Romania when a vehicle crashed into his car convoy. The driver of the car was dead and therefore can not give more information about his strange maneuvers. But the incident seems pretty obvious. As obvious as other "strange" accidents: for example, the death of Alexander Dubcek (1992) or the Polish President Lech Kaczynski (2010).
An attack can not be proved. There was no investigation. That there would be, if the incident had happened in Hungary. Striking is certainly the almost total silence of the incident by the mass media.
The readers are recommended to read the preamble of the new Hungarian constitution against the media barrage, to make an image for yourself. When the new Constitution was adopted, wrote the Spanish church historian Francisco de la Cigoña: "Today I would like to be Hungarian."
