Why should the Pope apologise?

Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam

Submitted by Waverider (United Kingdom), Sep 17, 2006 at 15:53

When was the last time anyone heard of a suicide Christian or Jewish bomber going into a packed muslim market and detonating a device?

Yet again a remark has been made by a Christian and the whole of Islam are chucking the rattles out of their prams and burning effigies and demanding apologies. Well where are the moderate muslims when it comes to condeming suicide bombers?

Where are the moderate muslims when it comes to reporting extremists in their communities to the authorities?

What the Pope quoted is absolutely correct. There are muslims who exploit the teachings of the Koran for their own means are these are the ones who are dangerous & evil. There is outcry from muslims about the treatment of terrorist prisoners in Camp X-ray.

What about kidnapped hostages who where beheaded and their execution posted on the internet? I didn't hear muslims condemning that on national news or read about it in the papers
