Pope lacking John Paul II’s grand gestures in reaching out to Muslims: analysts


I guess analysts gone crazy, by saying “Pope Benedict XVI has failed to heal the rift created by his recent comments on Islam due to a lack of the kind of grand gesture mastered by the more media-savvy John Paul II”. Let me clear it’s not his fault that some radicals didn’t understand his remarks was from one context which was said by some one nearly 700 years ago and that’s remarks is not his personal view. Even Now that the Vatican has genuinely apologized and is seeking to build bridges with Islam, Some hardcore Muslims leaders are just trying to ignore Vatican clarification Pope Apology. Instead of creating and bridging the gap, they are busy in creating tension and hatred among each other. Muslim world should forgive and forget the whole unpleasant episode and they must demonstrate by their behavior that their faith really teaches and practice Peace! Stop Blame Game!

 

VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI has failed to heal the rift created by his recent comments on Islam due to a lack of the kind of grand gesture mastered by the more media-savvy John Paul II, analysts believe.

A furore erupted in the Muslim world when the pope made a speech on September 12 at the University of Regensburg in Germany, in which he quoted a medieval Christian emperor who equated Islam with violence.

While insisting that the content of his lecture had been misinterpreted, the pope sought to calm the situation, saying he was ”deeply sorry” for any offence Muslims might have taken from his comments.The Vatican also organised a meeting between the pope and 22 Muslim envoys in an effort to patch up diplomatic relations and reiterate his desire for inter-faith dialogue.But the meeting merely served to confirm that Benedict does not see dialogue in the same way as his predecessor, analysts charge.
