QUOTE
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said recent remarks by the Pope on Islam were in line with what he called a "crusade" against Muslims.
The background to the controversy, he said, was the "wish of powers whose survival depends on creating crises".

The row began last week, when Pope Benedict XVI repeated criticism of the Prophet Muhammad by a medieval scholar.

The speech sparked worldwide protests by Muslims. The Pope has apologised and said the views quoted were not his own.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the remarks by Pope Benedict XVI last Tuesday were the "latest link" in "the chain of a conspiracy to set in train a crusade".

Other links, he added, included the cartoon satirising Muhammad and "the insulting remarks of some American and European politicians and newspapers about Islam".

Iran's supreme leader also said: "We do not expect anything from [US President George W] Bush, because he works for global, plundering companies and powers.

"But these remarks are very much a cause for regret and surprise from a senior Christian official."

Ayatollah Khamenei is the latest Muslim leader to condemn Pope Benedict's comments.

Influential Qatari Muslim scholar, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, called for a day of anger on Friday.

He also dismissed the Pope's expression of regret on Sunday, saying that the pontiff should retract his speech.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesman for Hamas, which controls the Palestinian parliament, said: "We do not view the statement attributed to the Pope as an apology."

Strike

Activists held more protests against the Pope in various Muslim areas on Monday.

In Indian-administered Kashmir many schools and shops remained closed.

Demonstrators took to the streets in Iraq and Indonesia. In Syria, a rally was held at a mosque in Damascus.

The Pope on Sunday expressed regret for causing offence in last week's speech - delivered during a visit to his native Germany.

He said the medieval text he quoted, which said the Prophet Muhammad had brought the world only evil, did not in any way express his personal opinion.

"I am deeply sorry for the reactions in some countries to a few passages of my address at the University of Regensburg, which were considered offensive to the sensibility of Muslims," he told pilgrims.

"These in fact were a quotation from a medieval text, which do not in any way express my personal thought.

"I hope this serves to appease hearts and to clarify the true meaning of my address, which in its totality was and is an invitation to frank and sincere dialogue, with mutual respect."

Turkish visit

Although some Muslims have rejected the apology, others have welcomed it.

The Council of Muslims in Germany said the Pope had taken an important step towards calming the unrest of the past few days.

The Muslim Council of Britain said the Pope's expression of regret was "exactly the reassurance many Muslims were looking for".

In Turkey, the most senior Muslim religious figure, Ali Bardakoglu, said the Pope's stated respect for Islam was a civilised position.

The government said the Pope was still expected to go ahead with a visit to Turkey in November

I have to say that my personal opinion on this is that the comments were unnesasary and hypocritical, before talking about violence connected to other religions, he should perhaps explain the violence connected to the Christian faith

These people are way too serious about their religion IMO. I'm an atheist but I don't see Christians or Jews taking offence like this whenever anything bad is said about their religion, heck Ali G is a Jew and his jokes mainly take the mick out of the religion and his followers but I don't see the Jewish community taking offence to him.
What the Pope said was wrong but everyone makes mistakes.

Yer 100% agree, im also an athiest and Muslims do seem to take things to heart a lot more than other faiths. But the Pope of all people should know this.

And they always bring up the crusades. Seriously, that was 1000 years ago, and we just had a pope that did nothing but apologize for it.
