Holy See No Evil

In the latest example of the world emboldening terrorists, PA President Mahmoud Abbas inaugurated a palestinian embassy at the Vatican yesterday.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas inaugurated the Palestinian embassy at the Vatican on Saturday and met with Pope Francis, when the two discussed an international peace conference set to launch in Paris on Sunday, when world leaders are expected to renew efforts to resolve the decades-old Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

“We are very grateful about the role that the Holy See has played for a just and lasting peace in the Holy Land, and for having opened an embassy of Palestine in the Vatican for first time. We are proud to be the birthplace of Christianity and about having one of the oldest Christian communities in the world,” Abbas said in a statement after the visit.

During their meeting, Abbas presented Pope Francis with replicas of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem and the Nativity Church in Bethlehem, along with “a book on the historic relations between Palestine and the Vatican and a painting by a Palestinian-Armenian artist of the Cremisan valley and the separation wall in Bethlehem,” according to state-run news agency Wafa.

Pope Francis, in return gave Abbas a book covering the “history of the Holy See” and a “medal titled ‘Mercy.’”

Besides another example of moral blindness, the meeting has brought us this quite remarkable photo:

Which reminds me of another iconic Abbas-related photo.
