Pope Francis uses Christmas message to say something else one will pay attention to

Pope Francis has used his Christmas message to call for a negotiated two-state solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, hours after Guatemala announced that it was becoming the first country to follow President Donald Trump’s lead and recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Mr Trump’s December 6 declaration – overwhelmingly condemned at the United Nations general assembly last week – has sparked clashes that have left at least 12 Palestinians dead.

    The Queen’s Christmas message was honest and uplifting, while this marxist fool spouts pathetic rubbish.

      –Marxist TOOL-

    “12 Palestinians dead” Good riddance, regardless of the Christmas spirit.

      A good start… but I’d hoped for more.

        So did Mamoud Abbas.

    May the Christian Lord Forgive this forgive this fucking POPE !

      Repentance first, forgiveness is not something to be rushed without proof.

        True and unlikely.
