No reason was given, but it was just weeks after Benedict's speech in Germany about Islam touched off protests across the Muslim world.

Did the Pope inform the bastard of the many “hurts” still festering over DEEDS not words, perpetrated by the Islamists”.
Humoring Islamist is not the path to peace.
How about that folks! Let’s give him a hand.
Brought to you by the same people that have pledged to drown you in a lake of fire! Cut off you heads and destroy your country!
What a kidder!
Seriously, he will be here all week. Make sure you try the chicken and remember to tip you waiter!
My exact thought.
I know this is about Pope Benedict’s statement, but I want to quote another Pope’s statement which I just love:
“I come as one who wishes you to fulfill completely your noble destiny of service to the world.”

Could someone answer Emperor Manuel P II’s question: What did Mohammed bring that was new that wasn’t cruel and inhuman?
He should put some ice on that.
Boo hoo. Perhaps he should be sent a bouquet of STFU.
CAMP TAJI Coalition forces thwarted an al-Qaeda plot to destroy the Huda Girls School in Tarmiyah, said U.S. military officials Thursday.
As reconstruction efforts for school systems in Iraq continued, al-Qaeda extremists targeted the Huda Girls School in Tarmiyah twice in the past month using improvised explosive devices and building explosives into the school house.
“[It was a] sophisticated and premeditated attempt to inflict massive casualties on our most innocent victims,” said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV, the Multi-National Force-Iraq spokesman.
Recently, the al-Qaeda plan to destroy the school was disrupted when Soldiers of 2nd Stallion Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team discovered a detonating wire across the street from the school leading to five artillery shells, two large explosive-filled propane tanks and numerous projectiles embedded in and around the construction of the school house.
