Look, this equivocation makes me sick. Coming from the Pope no less. What is wrong with the neurocircuitry of rational people? Yeah yeah maybe they ain't rational or maybe Jew hating obliterates rational thought..
The problem with asshat statements like these is THEY EMBOLDEN THE TERRORISTS.
VATICAN CITY - 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 Iran
"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, [uh...........why not? that's your job isn't it?- Atlas] "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.
So Pope Benedict Arnold, what is it you are suggesting? Attacks against Israel should be followed up with bouquets of roses and billions in aid (which of course invariably goes right into the bloody terrorists bomb making hands?
Israel takes the dangerously strategic of only going after the bloody assassins of innocent men, women and children. They got bomb pizza parlors, nightclubs, and religious gatherings. They go after and Kill the Killer.
I just dont get it............even with the Vatican's notorioulsy anti-semetic history.
