Pope 'sorry' for offence to Islam

I cannot help but smile at the violent reaction of Muslims to the Pope's innocuous remarks. The religious are different, of course. For those who take pride in belief without proof, it must be child's play to repudiate violence with fire-bombs.

The BBC - as usual - is spinning the regret expressed by the Pope for the totally disproportionate (can I use that word or have the Hizballah huggers banned its use without prior permission?) sensitivity of Muslims as an apology. It's no such thing: it is what it says it is: an expression of regret that his words taken totally out of context in an academic address can be used as an excuse for this kind of overreaction.
