George Weiss ,   Teaneck   (04.30.13)
So peres still thinks Abas is a partner for peace. How delusional can he be? It's time for him to go and retire.
6. Shimon Peres....
Shalom ,   U.S.A.   (04.30.13)
This marxist imbecile should be present at Borovsky's funeral and listen to the mourners' prayers!
7. Another disgraceful act by Mr. Peres.
Jake ,   USA   (04.30.13)
Everyone knows the Vatican is considered a Catholic church. It is forbidden for Mr. Peres to enter the Vatican. Not that he cares. His religion is Globalism, not Judaism.
8. Can people read?
Ron ,   Lawrence, Kansas   (04.30.13)
Jesus was killed by the Romans, that is obvious if you read the Gospels. He was killed by crucifixion, which was done ONLY by the Romans. The only way the Jewish people could impose the death penalty was by a vote of the Sanhedrin, a large group of judges. A Sanhedrin that convicted one person every seven or seventy years was referred to as a "Bloody Sanhedrin", because the death penalty was so rarely imposed by the Jews in Jesus' time. But people still claim over and over that the Jews killed Jesus, such as the poster that had to make that claim for the first three comments.
9. Abrak: ROMANS killed Jesus
Tevye ,   Colorado Springs   (04.30.13)
Have you never even read the New Testament?
10. 2 I've read it all my life, antisemitism isn't there

Of course you can read/interpret it Rabbinically to see what you want, but that's your personal choice.

what a plain idiot you are.
12. #4, Jesus was a Jew. Judaea was a Roman province
Jake   (04.30.13)
under Roman contrrol, when Jesus was crucified. If you are trying to be a good detective, as opposed to a blind bigot, you only need to look at the mode of Jesus' execution, as well as the placard above his cross, to figure out who killed him. Jesus was crucified, the standard Roman method of execution for rebels. The standard Jewish method of execution in those days was stoning (examples: Stephen and James). The placard above Jesus' cross read the following: "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews". An obvious Roman sarcastic message, to show what happens when somone dares to challenge Caesar by claiming to be "king". Not exactly what Jews would want to be written, if it had been them that killed Jesus. Not that it really matters WHO killed Jesus. Just before Jesus died, he uttered the words: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing."

16. Pope's visit
Get Real ,   UK   (05.01.13)
Let him come to Jerusalem, Israel's capital, and see the freedom of worship for all faiths; and let him compare that to the treatment of the remaining Christians in the Islamic world from Asia , through the ME to Central and N Africa.
17. The answer is simple, already written before it happened:
Scott ,   Israel   (05.01.13)
Isaiah 53:3-6 3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. And like in Genesis 42:8 So Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him. Israel does not recognize their messiah. And like Joseph said to his brothers in Genesis 45:5 - But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. So Israel's messiah says basically the same thing to them today... But never-the-less, the Catholic Church is an organization of men, with a long history of anti-semitism and hidden agenda, and cannot be trusted. Israel can only trust in her messiah....who came for them...and is coming back for them (and will reveal Himself as Joseph revealed himself to his brothers and loved them still).
18. To Mr. Chris Rettenmoser
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (05.01.13)
You are too wrong, my dear. Jesus was not killed by Jewish people, but by corrupt and oppressive leaders. It would happen in any country. Our God Unique is the same. Torah and Old Testament are equivalent. Awful past times are over. We, Christians, and you, have to march together for a better world. Think more about it.
19. Pope must negate Muslims as Palestinians.
BUTSeriously ,   Sydney   (05.01.13)
The Pope's own ancestors dumped this name on Judea - not any Arab or Islamic land or people.

I would say that his religion is GLOBETROTTING.
21. Office of the President
Rafi ,   Israel   (05.01.13)
Just another huge waste of taxpayer money. It's time to get rid of this worthless and wasteful office. Over NIS 100 million a year down the drain. Israel does not need a figurehead president.
22. # 1 Chris
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (05.01.13)
My daughter gave me a 'vulgate' catholic bible. ( isn't that latin for 'vulgar? ) If you compare the 10 commandments, it is more than obvious why they changed the text to fit their form. "This shalt not bow down to them or serve them" was edited to 'Thou shalt not adore them." Then, of course, somehow, magically, the Sabbath became Sunday, and the rest, well, let's just say that after a time even the Catholics threw it away and now use the King James. Rome fell and yet lives by substituting the "Holy Roman Empire," ( don't you love that irony ? ) by exacting the same positions with the newer names Emperor = Pope, Senators, Bishops,= Senators. Who in their right minds would still 'follow' such evil and the seat of so much corrupted sin when story after story of child abuse, banking mafia related scandals and institutionalized anti semitism is the only constant?
23. # 12 Jake it does matter
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (05.01.13)
The past is a prolog.... Like most criminals, Rome needed a 'sacrificial lamb' or 'scape goat' and guess who fit the bill? The words of Jesus were more of a threat to Rome who manipulated his words by the deliberate corruption of them in the NT into Latin and they later adopted a 'religion' based on the "Holy Roman Empires form, after Rome fell meant to keep persecuting and killing Jews, especially if they, like Jesus were a threat to them or their power. The first of the Christian cults. Jesus was never a Christian, he was a JEW!
24. Christian Anti-Antisemitism is very illogical.
Dr. Coambs ,   Canada   (05.01.13)
Most of the key messages of Jesus came from the Old Testament. For example Jesus often spoke about the power of forgiveness. This was based on the Golden Rule, the Ten Commandments, and the way the Jews have responded to crisis. I think of how Joseph was almost killed by his brothers, then sold into slavery, and nearly died because of it. Later on he forgave his bothers and rescued them and his whole family from starvation. When Jesus spoke of forgiveness he was talking about people like Joseph. People forget that all Homo Sapiens and many other species are prone to feuds, vendettas, killings, and warfare. Jews and Christians developed strict rules of social conduct that were designed to reduce strife and promote civilization. These are good rules, and we follow them much better now than the ancients did. Life expectancy in Israel has gone from about 37 in Abraham's time to about 80 now. Global life expectancy and prosperity are at the highest point in history, and still climbing. Judeo-Christian cooperation is good for our species.
25. the pope's hypocrisy and ignorance
equalearth ,   global   (05.02.13)
During the Nazi era the pope never said anything about anti-Semitism and the catholic church simply looked on as millions were exterminated. This Pope propagandizes the catholic church anti-contraception policy....It's the catholic church enforced overpopulation and population growth fuels the availability of ever more cheap workers that will work for peanuts as for every available job there are thousands that will take it because they need the money however little. After 60 years of unprecedented growth that has depleted global resources including food, water and energy, destroyed the natural habitat and biodiversity, wastelaid the planet with toxic and radioactive contamination and left virtually all countries with vast piles of debt that future generations must pay for and has put millions into unemployment..... does it really make sense to do it all over again? equalearth@twitter
