the meaning of words.

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

Dr. Pipes Many thanks for your astute check of the English translation.

"I am deeply sorry" vice "I am disappointed" or, "I regret" are not even on the same page. The first is as inaccurate as the constant MSM reference to "insurgents" in Iraq , or the 'resistance' in Lebanon.

As FM Livni said at the UN, " Terror is terror - even when it's called resistance"

A text from Steven Vincent on Atlas Shrugs says it all: "Words matter. Words convey moral clarity."
