No apologies to Islam until Islam apoligizes to the Jews (and the rest of the world)

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]

Submitted by Dr RJP (United States), Sep 19, 2006 at 22:04

Muslims go bananas whenever they interpret anything to be an "insult to Islam, " or an "insult to Peace-loving Muslims." Notice I said, "interpret," because the intention of what was said is irrelevant to them, as is the true meaning of what was said.

The immediately call for an apology from or an assasination of the "guilty parties." They aptly demonstrate how peaceful is their religion by firebombing Churches or Synagogues and attacking non-Muslims.

What should the Pope have done? Definitely NOT apologize!

What the Pope should have done is to tell ALL Muslims, even the so-called "peaceful ones", that when they apologize directly to Jews for the centuries of the most despicable depictions of Jews, for the destruction of thousands of their holy places and murder of thousands of their people, for the most baseless lies ever spread about Jews, for blaming Jews for all their problems and the problems of the world, and to treat Jews as their equals, stop blaming them for all the world's problems, and to also apologize to the world for destroying thousands of its cultures and murdering millions of its people in the name of Islam, THEN, and ONLY THEN, will he, or anyone else apologize for allegedly "insulting Islam" or "offending Muslim sensitivies"

Unfortunately, Hell will have to freeze over before even one of the things I mentioned above ever happens!
