The Pope's Regensbug speech

Not exactly worth chewing it over here, given that there is a high-end debate going on at the archbishop's place and a more earthy one at Guido's.

However, I've found this rather, erm, imaginative take on the affair in the Iranian press, translated and reported on at this site.

Some choice extracts:

"The reality is that if we do not consider Pope Benedict XVI to be ignorant of Islam, then his remarks against Islam are a diktat that the Zionists and the Americans have written (for him) and have submitted to him." "The American and the Zionist aim is to undermine the glorious triumph of Islam's children of Lebanese Hezbollah, which annulled the undefeatable legend of the Israeli army and foiled the Satanic and colonialist American plot".

"There are many signs that show that Pope Benedict XVI's remarks regarding the great prophet of Islam are a link in a connected chain of a Zionist-American project".



Quite possibly the silliest piece of Islamic paranoia since the suggestion that the 2004 tsunami was caused by a joint nuclear test involving Israel, India and the US. Perhaps I should feel slighted that Perfidious Albion was not fingered as in on the deal.

Yup, I spotted that one too. What's that line about rejoicing over repentant sinners?

Meanwhile, I wonder if Cicciolina will make one of her regular offers in an attempt to defuse the situation?
