Benedict’s first appearance on Saturday was at the presidential palace in Beirut, where he spoke to an audience of diplomats and Lebanese politicians — including central players in this country’s long and bloody civil war. Referring to the region’s troubled politics as “interminable birth pangs,” he repeated his contention that Lebanon could serve as an example of coexistence.

Ah, that whole civil war thing, it was just "birth pangs", birth pangs which unfortunately proved to be interminable. Probably caused by Islamophobes too. We Europeans should follow the Lebanese example and, if there are any problems with our new Muslim friends, we can console ourselves with the thought that they are just birth pangs.

The real problem with leftism is its assumption that human nature can be moulded and reshaped. Thus, policy is based not on human nature as it is, but human nature as left-leaning ideologues would like it to be. That's why it keeps crashing into reality.

chicken shit stupid heretic pope. If there ever was a peaceful coexistence was because Lebanon was a Christian-majority country, now it has a muslim majority.

Lebanon like many of these counties there is a victim of the allied victory of WWI. All this Imperial carve up, along with Jordan & Palestine it would have been better if they left Greater Syria alone. And with all these artificial borders is it still not possible to have a Christian Kingdom?

Lebanon was a Christian country. In fact was formed as a country for ME Christians. Now Christians are a powerless and dhimmi minority.

If that is what the pope wishes for Europe, then I dont know what to say.

How can the Pope be so stupid? Oh, I forgot, the West thinks Islam is a religion of peace.

The pope is in cahoots with Islam. He wants a syncretistic world religion with him at its head. A vatican II document "Lumen Gentium" includes Muslims in the "plan of salvation". We hear bishops in Europe sympathetic to Islam. I'm tellin' you, folks, the Vatican is an ebettor.

I live in a catholic country but catholic church doesn't speak for me.

That institution is corrupted human invention. If they were serious about what they profess they would denounce vehemently muslim oppression of christians.

And, if lebanon is an expample of successfull coexistence for Benedict XVI, he should also praise saudi arabia, because they do the same things that muslim lebanese do.

Under a Christian majority, Lebanon was the most advanced, freest, and wealthiest country in the ME behind only Israel. Then it was infiltrated by "Palestinians" and Syrians and plunged into a horrific civil war. Now it's just another Islamic shithole in a region of Islamic shitholes.

The only good that could possibly come from the Syrian civil war would be if it were to destabilize Syria/Hezbollah's grip on Lebanon and allow Lebanon to live free again.

Well, that and the ongoing deaths of tens of thousands of Muslims, of course.
