My take on the Pope's Islam quote

So the Pope quoted a medieval text about the Muslim prophet Muhammad and at this count we have death threats against the pope, an elderly nun shot in the back and killed in Somalia, churches in the West Bank torched, and general whining and seething.

To their credit, some Muslim leaders have accepted the Pope's apology.

But for far too many Muslims, it seems that if somebody says, rightly or wrongly, fairly or unfairly, that Islam is violent, the response is... violence or threats of violence.

The Pope didn't apologise. What he actually said was he was "disappointed"(I forwarded you the Pipes article). I think he deliberately chose that text: he recognises who the real enemy is. And the Mohammedans have just royally pissed off hundreds of millions of Catholics worldwide...

Yeah, Catholics can't help but to notice that people were calling for the Pope's death.
