What Pope Bendict XVI Said WAS Right

The immediate reaction of Muslim clerics world wide was to exhort their followers to protest the Pope's words and in some cases to violence against christians.

Nothing could have proved the truth of the words more clearly.

What the Pope did was quote another Christian leader from 7 centuries past.

He stressed that they were not his own words, he quoted Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire, the Orthodox Christian empire which had its capital in what is now the Turkish city of Istanbul in the 14th century.

The emperors words were, he said: "Show me just what Muhammad 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."

How little things have changed!

Even if the uninformed and gullible find the quotation disturbing or inflammatory he was right to make this point in this context.

The reaction of the Islamist theocratic thugs was predictable and drawing out the SOB's gives the civilized world another opportunity to see them in their true light.

How little we see in the MSM of such widespread criticism for words spoken by the Islamofascists. In fact the MSM world wide has been quick to fan the flames of discontent in the Islamic corners of the world!

A local Muslim leader has been trying to calm things down.

He said that the Muslims who have adjusted to Western culture are also in danger because they are regarded as almost being traitors.

It was a notion I had not really considered before.
