Israel has summoned the Vatican's ambassador to explain why the Pope left the country off a list of those recently hit by terrorism.

Pope {means 'Papa'] Benedict XVI on Sunday deplored attacks in "countries including Egypt, Turkey, Iraq and Britain".

Mat 23:9 Call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. {What part of that direct command from the Lord Jesus is so hard to understand?

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Israel said he had failed to mention a 12 July suicide bombing in Netanya that killed five Israelis.

The foreign ministry said it would be interpreted as "granting legitimacy to... terrorist attacks against Jews".

"We expected that the new Pope, who on taking office emphasised the importance he places on relations between the Church and the Jewish people, would behave differently," the ministry said in a statement.

The Vatican embassy declined to comment.

Pope Benedict has accepted an invitation to visit Israel but has yet to comment on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in public since taking office in April.

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Joe 3:4 Yea, and what have ye to do with Me? O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render Me a recompence? and if ye recompense Me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head.

Isa 14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

Exd 15:14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.  {Song of Moses - the saints 'sing' this song}  Rev 15:3

Why would the Vatican support that which the Lord already said He will destroy?

Mal 1:8 If ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? [suicide bombings?]

 

Offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee? or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts.

The name Israel came from God - not men} Gen 35:10 It is the Lord's heritage} Joe 3:2

Mat 12:30 He that is not with Me is against Me

Eph 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour.

As for the Jewish religions that continue to reject the New Covenant:

Hbr 8:13 In that He saith, A New Covenant, He hath made the first old.

Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah.

Again:

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
