    No one understands the prophet

    Again, they claim that nobody understands them. And that may be true.
    Non-muslims are not about to become muslims to foster understanding. Especially
    since to leave their club carries the death penalty.

    It is enough to quote the koran and monitor the fruits of this 'peaceful
    religion' as whispered to mahotmet by some angel.

    As I have always said, I doubt that angel was Gabriel as they claim, but some
    other angel all of us know too well.

    I would not be surprised if the Pope becomes a martyr over this. Something in his eyes tells me he is aware and unafraid and decided.


    A growing chorus of Muslim leaders have called on the Pope to apologize for the remarks he made in a speech in Germany on Tuesday when he used the terms "jihad" and "holy war." Pakistan's National Assembly, parliament's lower house, unanimously passed a resolution condemning the Pope's comments.

    "This statement has hurt sentiments of the Muslims," the resolution said.

    how little he understands Islam

    the Pope doesn't have a correct understanding of Islam

    could hurt "harmonious" relations

    the Pope misunderstood Islam and jihad

    Muslims can't eliminate jihad from the Islamic discourse, the same way Christians can't do away with the doctrine of Trinity

    We believe in respect for each other, freedom for Muslims to practice Islamic teachings

    Pope's statements might upset efforts to bring about a rapprochement

    Statements of this nature are very unhelpful

    No Pope has ever tried to attack the glory of Islam like this Pope

    Muslims must respond in a manner which forces the Pope to apologize

    In his speech at the University of Regensburg, Benedict quoted criticism of Islam and the Prophet Mohammad by 14th century Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Palaeologus, who wrote that everything Mohammad brought was evil and inhuman, "such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

    Benedict repeatedly quoted Manuel's argument that spreading the faith through violence is unreasonable, adding: "Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul."

    "Of course as we know the meaning of jihad can only be understood by Muslims," Budianto told the crowd. "Only Muslims can understand what jihad is. It is impossible that jihad can be linked with violence, we Muslims have no violent character." link

    Wouldn't it be clearer for these islam supporters to point out exactly how
    their beliefs foster peace prior to the whole world being converted to islam?
    They do not, because in their minds, this is the only way to achieve
    peace. One way or the other, everyone must get islamed.

    Unfortunatly for them, the rest of the world is not interested in that
