Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam

Submitted by Kevin M (United States), Jul 5, 2006 at 13:13

I can't really say what kind of clout (or wasta) the Pope would have in the Muslim world, but if he presses this issue right up to the monarchy of Saudi Arabia, the gov't of Pakistan and any number of African nations, the results should be VERY interesting. More interesting, actually, will be the worldwide Catholic response if the Pope is rebuffed throughout the process. In that event, I suspect the fireworks we will see in the west will place a dagger deep into the current PC mentality regarding the treatment of Islam in the West.
