Egypt Demands Pope To Apologize

In a meeting with the Egyptian foreign minister, Imam Ahmed El-Tayeb says he is willing to renew relations with the Vatican. However, he still wants an official apology from the pope for making an appeal on behalf of Egypt’s Christians and their security. A spokesman for the Egyptian Catholic Church expresses his appreciation for the government’s work in trying to relay the Holy Father’s concerns about Egypt.

Cairo (AsiaNews) – The new Egyptian government is trying to mend fences between Al-Azhar University and the Vatican. Recently, Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil al-Araby met Ahmed El-Tayeb, the imam of Al-Azhar Mosque, to discuss his recent visit with Benedict XVI. According to the minister, the head of Al-Azhar is prepared to renew relations with the Vatican, which were cut on 3 January after the pontiff came to the defence of Christians in the wake of the terrorist attack against Alexandria cathedral. However, university spokesman Mahmoud Abdel Jawwad said that any dialogue could be renewed only if the Vatican made an official apology for offending Islam.


My comment: The absurdity of these demands come from the fact that these people no longer have functional spiritual faculties. Islam has darkened their souls so much that they see they murderous crimes as virtue and feel no guilt when they desecrate a church.
