"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached". This was the pontiff’s remarks on holy war were offensive to Muslims in his recent remarks on Islam in a speech Tuesday at the University of Regensburg. He quoted from a book in which 14th-century Byzantine Christian Emperor Manuel II Paleologos and a Persian have a conversation about truths of Christianity and Islam. (quoted from USATODAY.com)
I am quite strange of what the Pope has made this remarks that would give rise to more conflicts between Christianity and Islamic world. As from the Crusader till now, the conflicts has not been totally erased, and we need tolerence rather than attack. So I think that the Pope has also realized that he made a mistake but can’t apologize publicly to maintain his dignity and "face". So let us pray for the Muslims that they can forget and forgive our mistakes and we can make friends though we have differences! By God’s love, I hope that christians can show mercy to others!
