Holy war continues...

Pope Benedict XVI was last night facing angry demands from Muslims that he apologise for a speech in which he appeared to say the concept of jihad was "unreasonable" and quoted a medieval ruler who said Muhammad's innovations were "evil and inhuman".

Protests swept across the Islamic world and the furore threatened a scheduled visit by the Pope to Turkey.

The Vatican spokesman, Federico Lombardi, told Vatican Radio: "It was certainly not the intention of the Holy Father to undertake a comprehensive study of the jihad and of Muslim ideas on the subject, still less to offend the sensibilities of the Muslim faithful."

Another reminder that the war in the Middle East is a holy war. Muslims wish to dictate what and how the Pope says? The Vatican is explaining the Pope's remarks to radical Muslims?

It sounds like the radicals are winning in many ways. Scary, that the need to be politically correct now has come to appeasing deadly, threatening radicals. If we could all be a bit more "compassionate" towards these people their victory is assured.
