Not everyone in the Middle East is over-reacting to the Pope’s Regensburg address:

One friend reminded me of the assassination attempt that targeted the former pope two decades ago wondering what the reaction of the pope was…as we all know he eventually visited the assailant and pardoned him.

No mosques were blown up and no speech of a clash of civilizations was made.
So why don’t we admit that the “other” is better than us at responding rationally when criticized? Why don’t we learn from others?

When we closed our ears to anything that doesn’t match our beliefs and refused all criticism wasn’t that enough reason for the deterioration of our civilization?
