Fury in Muslim World over Pope's Remarks

Hosted by

Speaking yesterday at a German university, Benedict XVI quoted from a 14th Century Christian emperor. "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." Although the Pope twice reminded the audience that those were somebody else's words, the speech has caused outrage throughout the Muslim world.
