did the pope disgrace islam and muslims with his shoes?
We all remember when the muslim world went crazy over the pope remarks during a speech in 2006 in Germany where he was quoting a 14th Century Byzantine emperor as saying, “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.” and since then muslims are waiting for an apology, just few days ago the Pope went to visit a muslim country Jordan ,and muslims were expecting an apology that never happened, instead new drama had started over the pope shoe, as they were offended that he entered king Hussien mosque with his shoe, this being one of the hot topics on a blog for Aljazeera as if muslims have no other problem but the popes shoe, and he he disgraced and insulted muslims, funny how muslims see what they want to see, for them to burn 1000 churches in Indonesia, set fire to 30 churches in Lebanon and Iraq, torch 18 churches in Nigeria, attacks on churches in Egypt, disgracing christian holly sites in palestine, as far as urinating inside some of the churches, and just yesterday a car bomb exploded in front of one of the churches in Egypt, most likely a response to the pope entering the mosque with his shoes,and now muslims are so concerned if the pope entered the mosque with his shoes.
This muslim selective memory as they forget all their insults to christian churches and holly sites but God forbid a pope walking in a mosque with a shoe.
where is the logic and where is the common sense.
