That makes sense

From Yahoo

Islamic countries also asked the U.N. Human Rights Council to examine the question of religious tolerance. Malaysia's foreign minister, Syed Hamid Albar, said Benedict's apology was "inadequate to calm the anger."
I think we have a winner here in the stupidest quote in reaction to Pope BXVI's speech. Of course it is "inadequate to calm the anger" when the Muslim leaders keep calling for more anger and violence. And any apology will be inadequate to quell faked emotions.

And as Dom has noted, the Pope wasn't apologizing anyway.
his statement was inaccurately translated. He did not say he was “deeply sorry” as the official Vatican statement . What he actually said to the crowd was vivamente rammaricato or “greatly distressed.” In other words, as I said above, he wasn’t apologizing.
The Curt Jester reveals why we see all these preprinted signs at the "spontaneous" demonstrations.
