Israelis, Palestinians make fools of themselves over Pope

By turning the visit of the Pope into a political gabfest, both Israelis and Palestinians made themselves into pitiful laughingstocks. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed (wrongly) that Jesus spoke Hebrew…and the Palestinians claimed (impossibly) that Jesus was a Palestinian.. That’s just a sample. I imagine the Pope is glad his sour trip here is over, and he can go back to being a religious leader.
