Pope Benedict XVI warned yesterday of rising anti-Semitism and hostility to foreigners, winning a standing ovation from members of Germany’s oldest Jewish community during a visit to a rebuilt synagogue that had been destroyed by the Nazis.
There is no place in this world for religious intolerance. Pope John Paul II described it best when he said all religions have a path to god.
"Benedict's visit appeared to have helped smooth over a dispute between the Vatican and Israel that arose after the Israeli Government faulted Benedict for not mentioning attacks on Israelis in a recent condemnation of terrorism."
Hold on, I am not anti-Semitic but I am anti-Zionist. The Pope was totally justified in what he did. The Israeli's send in missiles to crowded shanty towns and butcher women and children. They have become what they detest the most. I have always supported the Palestinians and will continue to do so against any form of Israeli aggression. The Israeli attempt for Moral superiority is nothing short of disgusting.
"The Vatican responded with a terse statement asking the Israelis not to tell the Pope what to say."
Good to hear it, until the issue of Palestine is sorted there can be no peace between East and West.
