No you are me making me laugh because as you sit and hate on the Islamic religion, you do not know why we oppose things like words that resemble Allah on the bottom of a shoe.

If I were to put Jesus on the bottom of a shoe (which I wouldn't because I have a strong respect for him and all religions) the Christians of America would also call for it's removal. The pope's statement was very offensive because the pope disrespects a man that the muslims love and follow. Do not say it is not justified because it is, it is just that people like yourself have probably never been discriminated against like the muslims because your entire religion was not blamed for an incident that is proved to have been done by some one from the inside. Do not comment as if you understand when you don't, because you just make yourself look...ignorant.
