    He made it

    Perhaps I shouldn't have worried about his safety.

    I think the Gulf Times is playing it up a bit about the part of the Pope
    facing Mecca. Seems he was standing next to the other fellow who said "I am

    Anyway, whatever works for them I guess.


    Istanbul/Rome: Pope Benedict ended a sensitive fence-mending visit to Turkey yesterday amid praise for visiting Istanbul's famed Blue Mosque and praying there facing towards Makkah.

    The pope, who sparked protests across the Muslim world with a speech two months ago seen as criticising Islam, looked relaxed and pleased as he entered the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit for a mass at the end of the sensitive four-day trip. Pope landed back in Rome yesterday from Istanbul.
