Read this excerpt from this article:
Pope Benedict XVI “sincerely regrets” offending Muslims with his reference to an obscure medieval text that characterizes some of the teachings of Islam’s founder as “evil and inhuman,” the Vatican said Saturday.
But the statement stopped short of the apology demanded by Islamic leaders around the globe, and anger among Muslims remained intense. Palestinians attacked five churches in the West Bank and Gaza over the pope’s remarks Tuesday in a speech to university professors in his native Germany.
Um… does anyone find this response a bit dumb? The pope called the teachings of Islam “evil and inhumane,” so the response of the Palesinians is to attack churches. Talk about fulfilling a stereotype.
