“It Is Always Someone Else’s Fault...Pope Benedict, Emperor Manuel II Palaeologus, & Mohammed Update

Regarding the comments of Pope Benedict on Islam and Mohammed;

"The violent reaction in many parts of the Islamic world justified one of Pope Benedict's main fears. They showed the link for many Islamists between religion and violence, their refusal to respond to criticism with rational arguments, but only with demonstrations, threats and actual violence.”

“It is always someone else’s fault, and issues touching on the nature of Islam are ignored,”

Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney

"We should take a deep breath on these things and all have a sense of proportion. We seem to be living in a world where people have no sense of proportion. OK, they don't like what was said. I'm sure the Pope was not intending to attack Islam. He's expressed his regrets, and I think we should really move on."

Prime Minister John Howard, Australia
