I just love this comment in Newsweek's great article on Pope Benedict's anti-Islam statement (and his lame fake apology)....
Going forward, the pope could usefully consult the words of another powerful Christian leader: “And given that Islam and Christianity worship the one God, Creator of heaven and earth, there is ample room for agreement and cooperation between them,” the leader said three months after September 11. “A clash ensues only when Islam or Christianity is misconstrued or manipulated for political or ideological ends.” The leader? John Paul II.
Only more stark difference between these two men is... The late Pope had resisted the Nazis, this current Pope was (is?) one.
