Venezuela’s Chavez says pope should be more careful with his words CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez urged Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday to be more careful with his words, saying he found the pontiff’s recent remarks regarding Islam and holy war “worrisome.” “I think the Vatican should clarify the position much better because I believe many doubts still linger among our Muslim brothers of the world,” said Chavez, whose statements were broadcast on state-run television. “Those who have so much weight with the word” shouldn’t be “saying something that could be misinterpreted and throw more fuel on the fire,” added Chavez, who visited the pope at the Vatican in May. Benedict has apologized for the angry response to a speech he gave last week, quoting a medieval text characterizing some of the Prophet Muhammad’s teachings as “evil and inhuman.”
Hugo Chavez intelligent, true without any political or religious biased or diplomacy.
