Dante's Banner for the Muslims

'See how I rend myself,
'see how mangled is Mohammed!
Ahead of me proceeds Alì, in tears,
his face split open from his chin to forelock.
'And all the others whom you see
sowed scandal and schism while they lived,
and that is why they here are hacked asunder.
'A devil's posted there behind us
who dresses us so cruelly,
putting each of this crew again to the sword
'as soon as we have done our doleful round.
For all our wounds have closed
when we appear again before him.
'But who are you to linger on the ridge? --

perhaps you put off going to the torment
pronounced on your own accusation.'
'Death does not have him yet nor does his guilt
lead him to torment,' replied my master,
'but to give him greater knowledge
'I, who am dead indeed, must shepherd him
from circle to circle, through this Hell down here.
And this is as true as that I speak to you.'
On hearing this, more than a hundred souls
halted in the ditch to stare at me
in wonder, each forgetful of his pain.
'You, who perhaps will shortly see the sun
warn Fra Dolcino to provide himself --
unless he'd like to join me here quite soon --
'with stocks of victuals, lest the siege of snow
hand the Novarese the victory
not otherwise so easy to attain.
One foot raised, halted in mid-stride,
Mohammed spoke these words,
then setting down that foot, went on his way.
Inferno Canto XXVIII

The Muslim Banner for the Popes visit reads: ‘Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves’

‘Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets. But I say to you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that calumniate you.’ Jesus Christ Second Person of the Blessed Trinity

Both above statements are at complete odds. One faith is false and was created by the false prophet Mohammad.
