In case you missed it, the Pope had an “interfaith” service at the 9/11 memorial site in New York City today, and that included, of course, a Muslim delegation.
"Oh Allah you are peace and all peace is from you"
Great 9/11 memorial, really stellar guys.

During the ceremony, Dr. Kuar and her father prayed from a Sikh prayer, “God, judge us according to our deeds, not the coat we wear.” He prayed first in Punjabi, then she in English.
The day before, during his appearance at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the pope addressed Muslims and the tragedy over the Thursday stampede in Mecca that killed more than 700 people. “I unite myself with you all,” he said.
Imam Khalid Latif, chaplain to Muslim students at New York University and Dr. Sarah Sayeed, a senior adviser to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, both Muslims, prayed, “lead us to your abode of peace.”
Park Avenue Synagogue Cantor Azi Schwartz sung a Jewish prayer in honor of the dead, “to the souls of the vicims of Sept. 11 who have gone to their eternal home, may their place of rest be in Gan Eden, may the All-Merciful One shelter them with the cover of His wings forever.”
I understand what he was going for, but maybe this is the one time we could exclude Muslims from our “interfaith” services since the Koran was the principle cause of the, y’know, murderous attack on America that they’re observing.
I dunno. Maybe it’s just me.
