The Pope Benedict XVI is the last Philosopher of West

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

Submitted by Barbara (Italy), Sep 21, 2006 at 06:25

Dear Mr. Pipes,

I ask apologize if my English is not so good. I am Italian and it's true what you wrote about the meaning of"sono rammaricato" (I'm disappointed).

But I'm very sorry to notice that many American medias didn't understand the real importance of Pope's speech. Pope Benedict said that there's no opportunity of dialogue if there is no clearness in discerning the differences between the 3 monotheist Religions. The passage about Faith and Reason is laic and it concerns everyone of us. That's the reason why muslims didn't bear it. Because in the islamic Countries it is strictly forbidden to reflect.

Many thanks for your appreciation about our great Oriana Fallaci.

Very truly yours,

Barbara
