pope benedict…hamas…israel…

vatican

at st. peter’s bascilica…it was an odd evening that involved a lot of walking and gorging on chocolate crepes…each of these statues is a saint overlooking the huge compound in front of st. peter’s bascilica…quite a place to be in…

the pope visited israel today…he was at the yad vashem holocaust memorial in jerusalem…

he condemned anti-semitism and made a sombre speech about the 6 million jews killed in WW II…

pope benedict was a reluctant member of the ‘hitler youth’ in nazi germany…

pope benedict was also in jordan recently, where he visited a mosque…

according to aid agencies working out of the gaza strip, two palestinian children were gunned down by israeli soldiers today…

they were ‘suspect’ terrorists with links to hamas…they were ferrying ammunition to the terrorist outfit…

eyewitnesses say they were carrying plastic bags full of vegetables…and a couple of comic books…

pope benedict condemned anti-semitism and made a sombre speech about the 6 million jews killed in WW II…

  1. Do you hate the macro and love the micro?
    Are you saying that only personal pain is real pain and larger pain is fascile? Are you saying that a big man like pope cant condemn policies and only make sense by personal bandaging of a few hurt or wronged men?
    Are you saying that god is great because he made you and not because he made mankind?

  2. pearl, i didn’t say all that…but you just did 🙂
