AZNAR DEFENDS POPE'S REMARKS

Good to see at least someone standing up to the thugs in dirty night shirts. Jose Maria Aznar, former PM of Spain pulls no punches in his latest speech on Islam and threat militant islamo-marxism poses to the West...
Jose Maria Aznar, former Spanish prime minister, defended Pope Benedict XVI’s comments about Islam, saying on Friday the pontiff had no need to apologise and asking why Muslims never did. the Spanish media said yesterday.

“Why do we always have to say sorry and they never do?” Aznar told a conference in Washington on “global threats” on Friday.

"I was disappointed there were not more European leaders who said 'naturally the Pope has the right to express his views'," Barroso was quoted as saying to the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

"The problem is not the statements of the Pope but the reaction of the extremists," the paper quoted him as saying.

Referring to the Moorish conquest of much of the Iberian Peninsula from the eighth to the 15th century, Aznar said: “It is interesting to note that while a lot of people in the world are asking the Pope to apologise for his speech, I have never heard a Muslim say sorry for having conquered Spain and occupying it for eight centuries.”
