Israeli PM praises Pontiff for book’s treatment of Jews

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday sent a letter praising Pope Benedict XVI for reiterating that the Jewish people are not responsible for Jesus’ death. The Pope made the comments in a new book released on Wednesday.

“I commend you for forcefully rejecting, in your recent book, a false charge that has been a foundation for the hatred of the Jewish People for many centuries,” Netanyahu wrote.


Editor’s note: So, I guess this means Mr. Netanyahu will be singing up for R.C.I.A. real soon, now!
