    Pope Benedict XVI was speaking in Jordan on the second day of his week-long pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

    He condemned what he calls the "ideological manipulation of religion" - calling it a catalyst for tension, division and violence in society.

    Al Jazeera's Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports on the Pope's visit as he tries to repair the damage done over controversial remarks he made about Islam during a speech in 2006.
