Well, not quite, but getting closer, according to LA Times:
Pope, in New Step to End Crisis, Pays Respect to Islam
The pontiff uses a general audience in St. Peter's Square to again reassure Muslims after his words last week provoked their fury….
"I hope that my profound respect for the great religions and, in particular, for Muslims…has become clear," the pope said. It is Muslims, he said, "who worship the one God and with whom we promote peace, liberty, social justice and moral values for the benefit of all humanity."
Whole thing here.
