in response to reader comment: POPE BENEDICT SPEECH

Smitty,

I have to correct you. The Muslims took the Holy Land away from the Holy Roman Empire in the east and from those who are better known as the Byzantines. The Byzantines, inherired the Holy Land from the Roman Empire, who in turn took it from the Greeks. It might pay to get your history correct.

Secondly, Sohail was wrong to rake up History and challenge the basis of the Roman Catholic Church. Everyone has a right to their beliefs and I say this as a very proud Muslim. History shows that Muslims and Jews have always co-existed and shall co-exist in the future also. If the Muslims have a gripe, it is against Zionism and not repeat not the Jews. We the Muslims follow the line from the Prophet Abraham ( May peace be upon him) theJjews and the Christians follow the line from the Prophet Moses (may peace be upon him). We are links from the same chain. let us end this sniping. Zionism is not a religious belief. It is an ideology based on religion.

It is time we stopped sniping at each other. We all follow the same line of Prophets.

Submitting....
