VATICAN: SPANISH PM RALLIES BEHIND POPE IN ISLAM CONTROVERSY

Madrid, 20 Sept. (AKI) - Muslims societies around the world should calm down and step back from the "disquiet" they may have experienced at Pope Benedict XVI's recent remarks linking Islam and violence to allow "understanding to prevail," Spain's prime minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said on Wednesday. "I am absolutely convinced that the Pope at no time wanted to cause controversy, confrontation or criticism of the Islamic confession or the people who practise it," Zapatero stated, adding that Benedict XVI had his "full support."
