The Gospel According to Francis I

Previous papal visits were either disastrous, successful or lukewarm; this time, Israel can stay calm: This visit is really not about it.

As opposed to the impressions one could get from the Israeli media over the last week, Israel, the Holocaust, Palestinians and even the dispute over the Last Supper Room on Mount Zion in Jerusalem are not at the top of Pope Francis’ interests when he arrives for his visit here in two weeks.
