the most difficult job......

The Pope and the King





It is not easy being a Pope !!!

you have to take care
not to hurt the feelings of the Jews
whom you have discriminated since history started

And at the same time,
not to hurt the feelings of Muslim-Arabs
nor the Muslims in general
whom he has colonised the last 350years


And he has to visit Jerusalem ,
without robbing it , this time.


And the most difficult task would be for his holiness
is not to disturb nor to heart nor to offend,nor to forget
the Christian-Arab- Palestinians. .....
who taught him what is Christianity , 2000 years ago,
and who suffer today from a "Jewish fantasy-mythology"
called...... ..... "Israel".


His Holiness must also remember that
when Muslims ruled Jerusalem
the Popes did not drive in an armoured-car
and the Churches of Jerusalem
did not need any building-license
issued by a Polish-Jew-Mayor .


I remember another Pope who visited
Jerusalem in 1966.......
he did not even use a Body-guard
and his host was an Arab-Muslim- King.


The day when,
his Holiness volunteered into the Hitler-Jugend (Hitler-youth)
the Palestinians, Christian and Muslim
were giving asylum to the Jewish-Europeans
escaping his Church and escaping his Party, also.


The Pope must realise that those European-refugees
have , in the meantime , stolen that refuge
and have taken their hosts as hostages !!!


Would his Holiness , wash his hands ?? ,
turn the other cheek ??
or seek Justice ??
would he give to Cesar what is for God ??
or seperate the divine from the devil ????


It is not easy being a Pope,
neither is it easy being a Christian-Arab
who needs a building-license for to build
a Church in the Holy Land....


Nor it is pleasant for a Muslim to know
that non-muslims are digging tunnels
under his Holy Mosque
And non-muslims control who may,
or may not enter the Al Aqsa Mosque !!!



His Holiness the Pope should stop being a spectator ,
if he were completely innocent .

Excellent, great describtion of this complex situation. Im sure it's not easy being the Pope but he could have out spoken against Occupation, while appologizing to the Muslims and Jews. It all needs courage.
