Pope Benedict XVI - Say It Ain't So

In the beginning I really thought Pope Benedict XVI had a grasp of the current Islamic-inspired insanity. I thought he was on the side of civilization against Muslim terrorists. I thought he supported Israel, as Israel's fight is our fight and Europe's fight, even though many Europeans seem to have resigned themselves to becoming dhimmi. I was wrong. As this news report demonstrates the Pope is willing to sacrifice the Jews (again) to appease the monster.
The Vatican on Thursday denounced some Israeli retaliations against past terrorism as a violation of international law in an ongoing spat over Pope Benedict XVI's failure to specifically condemn terror against
Israel in recent remarks.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry summoned the Vatican envoy to Israel on Monday and complained that Benedict "deliberately" didn't mention a July 12 suicide bombing in Netanya while referring to recent terror strikes in Egypt, Britain, Turkey and

"It's not always possible to immediately follow every attack against Israel with a public statement of condemnation," a statement from the Vatican press office said Thursday night, "and (that is) for various reasons, among them the fact that the attacks against Israel sometimes were followed by immediate Israeli reactions not always compatible with the rules of international law."

"It would thus be impossible to condemn the first (the terror strikes) and let the second (Israeli retaliation) pass in silence," said the statement, which had an unusually blistering tone for the Holy See.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry refused to comment on the Vatican statement.

On Sunday, as Benedict addressed pilgrims while on vacation at his Alpine retreat, he prayed for God to stop the "murderous hand" of terrorists. He denounced as "abhorrent" the terror strikes at a Red Sea resort in Egypt, the mass transit attacks in Britain and other terrorism in Iraq and Turkey.

On Monday, Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls said Benedict had been referring to the attacks of the last few days. He called it "surprising that one would have wanted to take the opportunity to distort the intentions of the Holy Father."

Navarro-Valls said then that the Netanya attack "falls under the general and unreserved condemnation of terrorism" by the pontiff.
Weasel words are offered after the usual condemnation of Israel for defending itelf. The Vatican has joined those who see the existence of Israel as a violation of internatioal law. The terrorists now know Israel still stands virtually alone in the world and will continue in their attempts to destroy it. The Pope, and all of the other terror-enablers needs to remember, if Isreal is destroyed, it will free up a whole mess of terrorists to attack Europe.
