Religion of Peace?
The Pope's views on Islam have been crystal clear for a long time. The Muslim world's mullahs and the West's liberal media (e.g. the NYT) are purposefully misquoting his speech for their own ends -- the former to strengthen their hand over the Arab Street, and the latter to continue their knee jerk left-wing attack on institutions supporting traditional values. It looks like they're getting what they hoped for:
