And someone tries to prove Emperor Manuel II Paleologus right.

It was, according to the Pope's remark, the Emperor Manuel II Paleologus who made the statements about Islam being violent: ""Show me just what Mohammed 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"."

In the dark irony of our day, beyond all the protests to say, "No, Islam isn't violent, " we are now seeing the Emperor's points being demonstrated by those who are mad that the Pope said that the emperor said that Islam does evil things:

"NABLUS, West Bank - Two churches in the West Bank were hit by firebombs early Saturday, witnesses and clergy said, and a group claiming responsiblity said the attacks were meant as a protest against comments by Pope Benedict XVI about Islam....In a phone call to The Associated Press, a group calling itself the "Lions of Monotheism" claimed responsibility. The caller said the attacks were carried out to protest the pope's remarks about Islam." (source)

Amazing. In the name of saying that the Pope was wrong, they go and do just the type of behavior that was being pointed out, and they can't even see how they are proving the point.
