Police dispersed a small crowd of Jews protesting the Pope’s visit at Palmach Street in Jerusalem, lest they offend the pontiff. The Jews were protesting the Church’s anti-Semitic policies.
Shimon Peres addressed the Pope as “Your Holiness,” suggesting that there is something holy about a fellow who poses as God’s representative on earth. According to Jewish law, such a pretender must be stoned. Jews have plenty of reasons to stone Peres, as well.
The ignorant Israeli president claimed falsely that Judaism is a religion of tolerance. Right, go tell that to Pinchas.
The former member of Hitlerjugend and friend of Holocaust-deniers visited Yad Vashem. Then the worshiper of icons toured the Holy Land.
On the positive side, the Pope unwittingly abrogated the age-long concept of Christians as “New Israel” when he wished that “both peoples may live in peace in a homeland of their own.” The only reason for Jews to regard this land as their own is the fact that they are the Children of Israel.
