Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]
in response to reader comment: puzzled

Reading the actual transcript of the speech, given during what was essentally a university lecture, rather than relying on quotations taken out of context puts a very different slant on things as is always the case in these situations. One reason, of course, being that it is less 'newsworthy'. Regrettably this is not something that the garden variety Muslim seems capable of understanding.
