Greeting the Pope in Israel

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2009/05/greeting-pope-in-israel.html

We must make facts by what we do, not by what we say. History cannot be erased by words, but it can be reversed by deeds. 
  

The visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Israel has provoked some reactions that are out of tune with the decorum of the occasion. It is easy to remember old slights, and harder to remember who we are today and who and what we represent.

 
My thoughts below have nothing to do with any religious views of the author, or any views of Pope Benedict as a person. They relate to Zionism, to the abilities of our people to transcend pettiness and live up to the demands of sovereignty, and to fulfill with honor and grace the sovereign duties of the Jewish people in the land of Israel, who are currently the secular guardians of many of the holy places of the Christian faith.  My thoughts below have nothing to do with any religious views of the author, or any views of Pope Benedict as a person.
