'It's not right to identify Islam with terrorism': Pope Francis refuses to link Muslims with violence after attacks in Europe.

Defender: The pontiff was asked by reporters why he never mentions Islam when condemning terrorism or violence and went on to say that it was unfair on the countless peaceful Muilims
The pontiff was on a pilgrimage to Poland, and made an unscheduled stop at a church in Krakow to implore God to protect people from the 'devastating wave' of terrorism in many part of the world.
He was pressed by reporters on the papal flight from Poland on the subject of Islamic terror, and Francis replied that 'it's not right to identify Islam with violence. It's not right and it's not true.'
He added: 'I believe that in every religion there is always a little fundamentalist group.'

'I don't like to talk of Islamic violence because every day, when I go through the newspapers, I see violence, this man who girls his girlfriend, another who kills his mother-in-law.
'And these are baptized Catholics. If I speak of Islamic violence, then I have to speak of Catholic violence.'
Noting he has spoken with imams, he concluded: 'I know how they think, they are looking for peace.'
As for the Islamic State group, he said it 'presents itself with a violent identity card, but that's not Islam.'

Pope Francis dropped in at World Youth Day 2016 where he warned today's technology had its dangers, chastising 'drowsy and dull kids who confuse happiness with a sofa', and urging them to get out and live life rather than spending it glued to their smartphones. 
The 'world is at war', Francis said, but the way to 'overcome fear' was to welcome people fleeing conflicts and persecution - a message with particular resonance in Poland, which has taken a hard line against refugees.
On Saturday he prayed for God to rid the world of the 'devastating wave of terrorism'. 
The Pope added: 'How many of our European young have we left empty of ideals, with no work, so they turn to drugs, to alcohol, and sign up with fundamentalist groups?'

Warning: The Pope also warned that Europe was pushing its young into the hands of extremists
