    The Vatican sounds like the far left contingent in our country(U.S.). It's as though they have their collective heads in the sand....or, they, the Catholic church now are siding with Islamic Terrorists? This is ridiculous!!

    Lebanon is allowing Hezbolah to operate within their borders in Southern Lebanon, they allow them to have influence in Lebanese politics, and Israel is being attacked for violating their sovereignty?

    Hezbolah crosses the Lebanese-Israeli border and attacks Israelis, but Israel is condemned.

    The Catholic church even sounds like the Russian's response, that basically says, Israel's response is disproportionate...........Bull........I say. Hit'em hard, and make them remember the sting......Make the Lebanese populous hate the presence of Hezbollah in their country.

    Whose running the Vatican.........it sure isn't God calling the shots.......All along I thought the Vatican had a hotline to heaven and could do no wrong...........but this is a travesty! If they keep this up, a big old lightening bolt is going to make toast of the Vatican. It's one thing to be a prophet, but it's hell to pay if your a false prophet/representative of the church of Christ.

    Israel is like the prodigal son to God........and the Vatican is taking the side of the brother that stayed home and was a "goody-two-shoes" but in reality was worse-off than the prodigal.

    What back-stabbers!!

    Vatican condemns Israel for attacks on Lebanon

    VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - The Vatican on Friday strongly deplored Israel's strikes on Lebanon, saying they were "an attack" on a sovereign and free nation.
    Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano said Pope Benedict and his aides were very worried that the developments in the Middle East risked degenerating into "a conflict with international repercussions."

    "In particular, the Holy See(Holy What? Makes Pontius Pilate seem like a fair guy in comparison!) deplores right now the attack on Lebanon, a free and sovereign nation, and assures its closeness to these people who already have suffered so much to defend their independence," he told Vatican Radio.

    Israel struck Beirut airport again on Friday and bombed Lebanese roads, power supplies and communication networks in a widening campaign after Hizbollah guerrillas seized two Israeli soldiers and killed eight.

    Sodano said the Vatican condemned both "terroristic attacks" and military reprisals.

    Hizbollah, which wants to trade its captives for prisoners held in Israel, has showered rockets across the frontier in its fiercest bombardment since 1996 when Israel launched a 17-day blitz against southern Lebanon and Hizbollah.

    It's embarrassing. There really isn't any excuse. Typical knee jerk, 'protect the poor innocents' while ignoring facts.

    I think the Vatican would like to see this portrayed as the Protestants and Jews against Islam. Reformation payback.

    They're saying jews don't need jesus. Is that what you believe? That is heretical. Jesus most definitely told the jews they needed him.
