Benedict to Meet With Muslim Leaders

From Guardian Unlimited | World Latest | Benedict to Meet With Muslim Leaders:

"When he meets with Muslim leaders, Benedict will be greeted at the meeting by Rydvan Cakir, president of the Turkish-Islamic Union of the Institute of Religion, a social and religious group. Some 2.6 million people of Turkish origin live in Germany.

Since becoming pope, Benedict has steered a cautious course on Islam, saying little besides condemning the terrorist bombings in London as the work of ``fanatics'' who don't represent true Muslim faith.
