Israeli Grievance Hustlers Manage to Alienate Even Pro-Israel Catholics
This is the Speaker of the Israeli Knesset, among others, who is expressing anti-Catholic sentiments and demanding an "apology" for something for which the Church (1) was not responsible, (2) was itself a victim, and (3) took an active role in opposing:
"We're talking about the pope, who is also a representative of the Holy See, which has a lot to ask forgiveness from our people for," Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said during an interview on Israel Radio on Tuesday. "And he is also a German, whose country and people have asked forgiveness. But he himself comes and speaks to us like a historian, as an observer, as a man who expresses his opinion about things that should never happen, and he was - what can you do? - a part of them."
