Pope calls Abbas ‘angel of peace’ during Vatican visit

Pope Francis praised Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as an “angel of peace” during a meeting at the Vatican.

Francis made the compliment Saturday during the traditional exchange of gifts at the end of an official audience in the Apostolic Palace. He presented Abbas with a medallion and explained that it represented the angel of peace “destroying the bad spirit of war.”

Francis said he thought the gift was appropriate since “you are an angel of peace.”

    I suspect he also calls the Devil an “angel of peace”.

      My first thought was ‘Satan was an outcast angel’.

    The pope has drifted off to fantasyland and needs a mental health checkup ASAP.

      He’s crazy!

    • Minicapt

      He’s being a Jesuit.


      • Justin St.Denis

        You got it. Jesuits are “agents provocateurs” and always have been.

  • This Pope is the most deluded of the modern era. He is obviously not guided by Christian values and principles, but by contemporary Leftist inversions.

      he is a commie

    The angel of peace is guiding Hamas the terrorist group that attacks Israel frecuent

    To the Pope the angel of death is still an angel.

  • Scaramouche

    If Mahmoud Abbas is an “angel of peace” then I’m the Queen of Sheba.

    • Justin St.Denis

      No you aren’t! I am! And I will have you beheaded for impersonation, which I declared against the law in my realm many centuries ago. You ought to know that, you fake phony fake Thingummybob.

    The papal position used to be filled by high-power intellectuals with solid moral sense. Just like most of the rest of the world, there goes the neighborhood.

    • Justin St.Denis

      The Holy See just got blindsided. Hope CATHOLICS are not fooled by this blind nonsense.

  • Dana Garcia

    There’s no fool like an old fool, except maybe a religious fool displaying his alleged virtue.

  • Justin St.Denis

    This Pope is deeply stupid and very dangerous. I also doubt that he is actually a believing Roman Catholic. Many, some even say most, Jesuits aren’t.

  • Oracle9

    Remember Munich. Abbas was an accessory to mass murder. Some angel of peace.


  • DMB

    Any sicker than this this Anti-pope would be washing and kissing Abbas’s feet.

  • This won’t look good when Abbas orders air-strikes against Israel.

    Where is Pope Benedict when one needs him?
