    “the Pope’s comments to Mahmoud Abbas, which basically amount, in both the grammatical and metaphorical senses, to a subjunctive command to be a man of peace.”- what was it in Matt. 13:15 about those who “their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears…”?
    The Pope’s comment is to be understood as an exhortation to abbas to dance on the tip of a needle and to take several more abbases with him while doing so. That’s what the angels do.

    If this pope expects the Palestinians to shape up, well, that’s just pie in the sky, ain’t it?
