"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached"
As instructed by Islam the religion of peace, Moslems hold a great deal of reverence and respect to all Christians and the Pope, and the absolute majority of Moslems are against violence targeting civilians, the past half a century has been very difficult on Moslems trying to defend their faith and land against vultures from every land and religion, which naturally gave birth to the likes of Binladen.
Coming from a Byzantine or a neo Zionist, those words may pass, but from the Pontiff it is very harsh and cruel, speaking ill not about today's radicals (whom all we all are against), but about our beloved Prophet Mohamed is a grave matter and with repercussions, radicals on both sides of the fence will jump on this opportunity, and ignite an already volatile world.
Historic facts and the our book the Quoran are enough proof against Pope Benedict's quote, and I will not dwell upon it further, all I can say is that I am very disappointed and dread the repercussions.
Pope John Paul II, we miss you more than ever.
