Pope Francis in his Christmas prayer reminded the world that both Jesus and Muhammad were migrant refugees. Apparently his history education and current event understanding are both lacking and dysfunctional.
Those of us who are educated know the stories of Jesus and Muhammad fleeing death. Mary and Joseph took their child to Egypt when they were told that King Herod sent his soldiers to Bethlehem to kill Jesus and make sure by killing all the newborn babies. In contrast, after he demanded his tribal leaders in Mecca submit to Islam and acknowledge him their spiritual leader, Muhammad was banished on pain of death and fled to Mecca. From there he sent his followers to raid Meccan caravans to kill and loot them causing the leaders to send assassins to kill him, but they failed and were forced to convert to Islam or die.
