Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday met in the Vatican on Wednesday with a group of Palestinian Catholics, who presented him with traditional Palestinian scarf as a gift.
Pope accepts keffiyah as gift from Palestinian worshippers
At the end of the service, two youths from the group were brought to the pope and draped the checkered black-and-white scarf on his shoulders. Benedict chatted briefly with them while wearing the scarf, which an aide later removed.
Pius, who reigned from 1939 until his death in 1958, has been accused by some Jews of turning a blind eye to the Holocaust, a charge his supporters and the Vatican deny.
DOES HE NOT KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE KEFFIYYAH?
Who are they kidding?
Forgiving Bishops who deny the Holocaust.
Apologizing for Pius XII, Pius IX, and Queen Isabella?
Encouraging the beatification of supporters of genocide?
Papal approval of Durban II, a meeting whose sole purpose was to attack Israel and eventually make illegal even honest criticisms of Izzzzlam?
Leading a Church with a lonnnnnnnnnnnng history of abuse, and Antisemitism.
And now………..The keffiyah ?
Not cool at all.
Here are your ahem..”supporters”..NOT.
The keffiyah may have been worn by others in history but since the horrific Intifada, it is now used to express some twisted, pseudo nationalistic pride by Arabs and terrorist supporters— which, incidentally — includes honoring a terrorist like Arafat, who was never seen without one.
Shame on those Pale-stinian (as if there were such a group..) Christians. Giving the Pope the very symbol of those persecuting Christians in Israel and world wide.
With all due respect…Pssst. Pope Benedict.
Not that there’s anything wrong with wearing a towel on your head, aka, the current day equivalent of a swastika………
But come to think of it………Why not wear straitjacket; it would be much more approriate to represent the Arabs who wear those ahem…”scarves”.
It is the symbol of Izzzzzzzzlamic militancy and terror.
End of story.
The Pope of all people should be aware of how “the Jew” has become the personification and embodiment of all that frustrates the anti-semite.
Everything that makes the anti-semite feel powerless and impotent, not to mention insanely jealous.
After all….. Vicious and ferocious anti-Semitism exist in places where Jews do not even live.
In Christian “myth”, Judas, is the betrayer of God’s son, and twas “the Jewish mob” who demanded his crucifixion.
Of course in Issssssssssslam, the Jew is the enemy of God, the equivalent of the anti- Christ.
Issslam ascribes to “the Jew” all sorts of malevolent supernatural powers, and the nastiest evil intentions.
Check out Sayyyyyid Q-utb, who even as far back as the 1950′s, blamed “Jewish wickedness” and deception from keeping Musssslims estranged from the truth of their faith.
SHAME ON YOU Pope Benedict.
For donning the symbol of sheer inhuman, sadistic TERROR.
Not cool at all.
