“Whenever Islam becomes politicized it automatically turns into a fascist dictatorship,” says Bishops’ spokesman.

While most of the West dithers and stutters over Egypt President Mohamed Morsi’s power grab, one institution is speaking out very forcefully: Egypt’s Catholic Bishop Conference. Rafik Greiche, spokesman of the conference, is making it clear that the Catholic Church firmly opposes Morsi, his treatment of protestors and the constitution he is trying to rush through.

“The European Union must make it clear to President Morsi and his government that they have to observe human rights,” he told the Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need, according to a report published on their website December 12.

“The militias of the Muslim Brotherhood have threatened people demonstrating peacefully against the president’s policy,” he said. “This is just as unacceptable as the text put forward for the future Egyptian constitution.”

Egyptians will vote on the new constitution on December 15 and 22. The document was hurriedly put together despite the opposition of Christians and other minorities.

But Greiche made is clear that he is not just opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood or Morsi. He is against any form of “politicized” Islam.

“Whenever Islam becomes politicized it automatically turns into a fascist dictatorship,” he said. “Then comes the impending threat that the sharia in its most fundamental form will be introduced.”

These are shockingly candid statements. And the only organization willing to make them is the Catholic Church.

In an interview with IlSussidiario.net, the news outlet for Italian think tank Foundation for Subsidiarity, Greiche said the Catholic Church “would never go back” to approving the work of Egypt’s constitutional committee.

He also criticized the United States for not doing enough. “The West and especially the United States is very soft with President Morsi,” he said.

“It seemed as though the United States were encouraging the Islamist movement in the Arab Spring,” he said. “This is not good for the rest of the Muslims who do not [want] part of the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as for the Christians, who have not been encouraged at all.”

Instead, Greiche calls for help from the EU.

This outspoken priest calling for help from Europe on behalf of Egypt’s Catholic Bishops is a sign of things to come. The Catholic Church will soon take the lead in pushing Europe to confront the rise of radical Islam.

After the first round of a two-stage vote, it looks like a majority of Egyptians favor the new Islamist-backed constitution.

When President Mohamed Morsi virtually appointed himself pharaoh of Egypt on November 22, demonstrations broke out across the nation. Thousands of secularists and liberals stormed the neighborhood outside Morsi’s palace, protesting the audacious power grab. They were met by thousands of Islamists who fought back in support of Morsi’s absolute rule. Cries of “no to dictatorship” were met with chants from the Islamists: “Defending Morsi is defending Islam.”

Then, after two and a half weeks of political turmoil and riots on the streets, Morsi rescinded his controversial decree. Under heavy pressure from the Arab street, we were told, Morsi backed down.

But this was hardly an act of conciliation or compromise from Morsi or the Muslim Brotherhood. As columnist Andrew McCarthy wrote, “Morsi grabbed the reins with a shrewd caveat: His dictatorship would end once the draft constitution was approved by Egyptians in a national referendum—which is to say, once the dictatorship had served its purpose” (National Review, December 1; emphasis added throughout).
