RE: The Pope is an idiot and definitely not infallible.

The Pope is not speaking ex-cathedra, so yes, in this regard, he is infallible.

Checked my Bible and didn't find this "ex-cathedra". Is it in the Douay?

First, you meant to say fallible.

Second, check your catechism. Ex Cathedra isn't enough. In this case, even if he were speaking Ex Cathedra it wouldn't be a sufficient guarantee. Infallibility is only claimed when he speaks Ex Cathedra on a matter of doctrine or morals applying to the whole Church.

Statements about Islam could never be considered infallible under the doctrine.
