The pope has yet face the increasing elimination of Christian communities in the Muslim Middle East. And his shallow chirping for Mid East peace is no more than western Catholicism's lip service, as occurred during the Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium during year 1453.

Yeah, good luck with that Pope. If they just stop on the account of you asking them to, that will be a true miracle.

Why not think even bigger, ask them to kiss and make up.

About as likely.

After siding with terrorism in Israel earlier this year he can go F%&k himself. He stood with Abbas (a self-pronounced terrorist and holocaust denier), stood with the Mufti of Jerusalem who preaches on the Temple Mount to kill Jews.

He only speaks up when Israel retaliates.

I've noticed this about not only the pope but also every other nation including the U.S. Rockets get fired into Israel all the time and you hear nothing, but as soon as a Israel starts defending itself and the people of Israel, people start crying war crimes and genocide. And that big joke in New York, the terrorist supporter, also known as the U.N.( in my opinion) starts calling for cease fire, and investigations. I don't understand.

Understand that in every level of international relations, media etc there is an underlining hatred for Jews. If it was just Zionism than other nations would also be targeted for mass boycotts, and protests but noone cares about the millions being massacred worldwide only the poor homicidal Palestinians.

It has not been long since the Holocaust and nothing has changed.

Wait till the hostilities reach Europe and see their reaction.
