The Pope irritates the Muslim world

"If this crisis doesn't turn into a repeat of the cartoon row it will be only thanks to the quick reaction of the Vatican and the soothing words of Islamic leaders who no longer insist on an explicit apology", Monika Kappus writes. "Yesterday the protests against Benedict appeared to be losing momentum. If the situation doesn't escalate it will be all the more remarkable because rather than apologising for his remarks, the Pope simply expressed his sorrow about the reactions to his words. He neither took back what he said nor tried to find a way of making his words less offensive, although this is what was urgently needed... A pope is not a scholar who can philosophise about things without thinking about the consequences."
