The Corner says that Al-Azhar suspended dialogue with the Vatican after the Pope expressed objections to the massacre of Christians in Iraq and Egypt.
“[Al-Azhar’s] Islamic Research Council reviewed in an emergency meeting Thursday the repeatedly insulting remarks issued by the Vatican Pope toward Islam and his statement that Muslims are discriminating against others who live with them in the Middle East. . . . The council decided to freeze dialogue between al-Azhar and the Vatican for an indefinite period.”
Here’s an idea. The Pope can publicly apologize to Al-Azhar for suggesting that Christians are discriminated against in remarks televised from the largest church in Saudi Arabia.
