If the Pope says it, it must be true.

Pope says terrorism, nihilism and fundamentalism threaten peace

11:41:03 EST Jan 1, 2006

VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Benedict XVI warned Sunday that terrorism, nihilism and "fanatic fundamentalism" threatened world peace and called for individuals, governments and institutions to work together to combat them.

Benedict made the appeal during a Mass in St. Peter's Basilica to mark New Year's Day, which the Catholic Church celebrates annually as its World Day of Peace.

In his homily, the pope said a "shock" of courage and faith in God was necessary to spread peace, and that everyone must work together to combat the threats to it.

"It becomes ever more important to work together for peace when confronting the situations of injustice and violence that continue to oppress various parts of the world, those that are the new and most insidious threats to peace: terrorism, nihilism and fanatic fundamentalism," he said.

Benedict said individuals and entire populations, international organizations like the United Nations as well as world powers must assume their responsibilities to promote values of justice, solidarity and peace in the world.
