Another Pope who's not going to be chummy with Israel

BBC news reports the the Pope is still refusing to include Israel in the list of recent terror attacks. Why?

It said this was mainly because "the attacks against Israel sometimes were followed by immediate Israel reactions not always compatible with the rules of international law".

"It would thus be impossible to condemn the first (Palestinian attacks) and let the second (Israeli retaliation) pass in silence".

And just what is Israel supposed to do when a grown man dons a dynamite girdle and kills several innocent people? Their response is always a military one and they do not deliberately target innocent people the way the Palestinians do. That's pretty lame on the part of the Pontiff.
