Summary
Article summary: 

Views of Muslim scholars differ over whether to accept the so-called "apology" of Pope Benedict for the remarks he made about Islam a few weeks ago. Nearly 38 Muslim scholars and leaders sent a letter to the pope to indicate their appreciation of the pope’s expression of regret and his affirmation that the words of the Byzantine emperor he had quoted did not reflect his personal opinion. The senders stressed the need for sincere and honest dialogue to further mutual understanding and respect between the two religions. Although he was said to be amongst the signatories of the letter, the grand muftī, Shaykh ‘Alī Jum‘ah, said that he did not accept any apology from the pope, whom, the muftī said, did not actually apologize.
