The pope did NOT speak of deep respect for Islam

It is quite unbelievable how the international media give the impression that Pope Benedict XVI spoke of his 'deep respect' for Islam. Are these guys so thick? The pope always chooses his words carefully - and he spoke of 'deep respect for the muslim community'. That means, he says positive words about people, not about the religion they adhere to.

Read the quote and see it in video on the website of BBC.
The 82-year-old Pope praised Jordan's "respect for religion". The visit, he said, "gives me a welcome opportunity to speak of my deep respect for the Muslim community".
So why then so dumb to say that the Pope spoke of his 'deep respect' for Islam? You would think that the religious editors worldwide would be able to interpret the words of the pontiff better.
