Muslim clerics reach out to Pope

Oct 13 2006 BBC report - excerpt:
An open letter to the Pope from 38 top Muslim clerics in various countries accepts his expressions of regret for his controversial speech on Islam.

But the lengthy letter carried on the website of Islamica magazine also points out "errors" and "mistakes" in the Pope's speech.

The clerics' letter is due to be passed to the Vatican on Sunday.

Pope Benedict sparked an uproar in September by quoting a mediaeval text which linked Islam to violence.
Strange how Muslims can find it within themselves to get up in the air about old writings but say very little about their brothers' perishing in Darfur.
