Pope Benedict XVI began a delicate mission to Turkey, trading conciliatory gestures with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan as both sought to calm the storm unleashed when the pontiff appeared to link Islam to violence.

The pope, in a striking reversal of opinion, said on Tuesday that he backed Turkey's bid to join the European Union.

"We want Turkey to be part of the EU," Erdogan quoted Benedict XVI as telling him. Erdogan himself made a conciliatory gesture by personally greeting the pope as he stepped off his Alitalia plane at Ankara's Esenboga Airport, defying protocol that normally would have a minister of state serve this function.

The pope described his high-stakes visit -- his first to a Muslim country since his election in April 2005 -- as an opportunity for "reconciliation" between Christianity and Islam.

"The goal of this trip is dialog, fraternity, a commitment to understanding and dialog between cultures, to a meeting of cultures and religions in favor of reconciliation," the pope told reporters on the flight from Rome.

The trip is a controversial one in Turkey, amid residual anger over the September comments that triggered widespread outrage in the Muslim world.

In addition, the pontiff, seen as a defender of Europe's Christian identity, had already been dubbed the "anti-Turkish pope" for saying, when he was still Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, that EU membership for Ankara would be "a grave error against the tide of history."

Erdogan had initially refused to meet the pope, pleading prior commitments.

A pastoral and political visit

The two spoke briefly at the airport VIP lounge under heavy security before Erdogan headed for a NATO summit in Riga and Benedict XVI went on the first stop of his tour, a wreath-laying ceremony at the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey.

Benedict signed a visitors' book at the monument, writing: "On this land, meeting place and crossroads of different religions and cultures, junction of Asia and Europe, I am pleased to adopt the words of the founder of the Turkish republic as my own in expressing this wish: 'peace at home, peace in the world.'"

Erdogan, addressing his Justice and Development Party's group in parliament earlier Tuesday, said the pope's visit would contribute to "the alliance of civilizations and global peace."

He gave assurances that the pope would be well received and criticized Islamist and nationalist groups in Turkey that opposed the papal visit as "marginal, specific and narrow."

Why he set this up:. He has to keep the HATE going so he promoted HATE for Islam. He has to keep patriarchy in place to make people believe in MORE BABIES so he can supply his zionmasters with future cannon fodder. He FIRST promoted HATE to mollify his xian puppets then he unites religious dogmas that support judeo/xian/islam teachings of women as breeders.

NEAT MOVES ! He holds his global congragation for jesus while giving allah/islam
a pat on the back for upholding the tyranny of the WAR GODS. He is a real TERRORIST, that PB16, right out of the Inqusiition Age!
