The Arab News eulogizes Pope John Paul II as a good dhimmi. From “Editorial: Pope John Paul II” (thanks to Skeetstreet for the link):
Despite President Bush’s typically unfortunate use of the word “crusade” after 9/11, American policy became notably more sensitive toward Islam. The pope meanwhile made a point of apologizing to the Muslim world for the original Crusades.
Wait a minute. Just two weeks ago Al-Azhar was complaining that the Pope had not apologized for the Crusades, and demanding that he do so. Which is it? Did he or didn’t he? Can anyone shed any light on this?
