Pope Francis Prays at the Real Wailing Wall
By Eileen Fleming
EXCLUSIVE to The Arab Daily News
Previous popes always visited Tel Aviv on their way to the West Bank, but Pope Francis went by helicopter directly from Jordan to a meeting with the President of the *State of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas. Alongside of Abbas, Pope Francis said:
The time has come to put an end to this situation, which has become increasingly unacceptable.
President Abbas listed Palestine’s complaints against Israel including continued settlement construction, the plight of thousands of Palestinian prisoners, its control of east Jerusalem, and the construction of the “ugly wall” that encircles Bethlehem.
We welcome any initiative from you to make peace a reality in the Holy Land.
I am addressing our neighbors, the Israelis.
We are looking for the same thing that you are looking for, which is safety, security and stability.
Pope Francis has called for people world wide to pray for peace in the Holy Land and he prayed on Bethlehem’s side of the “real Wailing Wall-the Apartheid Wall” so coined by Israel’s Nuclear Whistleblower, Mordechai Vanunu
*In November 2012, the UN general assembly overwhelmingly recognized a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem as a non-member observer.
