It looks like Pope Benedict XVI has offended some members of the Muslim community. Here are the facts as we know them.
Last week The Pontiff was pulled over by the Malibu police while driving erratically on the Pacific Coast Highway. When a breathalyzer test was administered it showed a blood alcohol level of .12, well over the limit for driving while intoxicated.
The arresting officer said His Holiness was belligerent and asked him "Are you a Muslim?" and then added "the Muslims are responsible for all the wars in the world!"
Later a spokesman for the Vatican said Benedict “"sincerely regrets" that Muslims have been offended by some of his words.
