Well, I’m not surprised
... but I am depressed.
A few weeks back we marveled at how the rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinovitch, took a mighty stand
on two accounts vis a vis the Pope visiting the Kotel:
With regards to the Pope displaying his cross at the site, Rabbi Rabinovitch said,
"My position is that it is not fitting to enter the Western Wall area with religious symbols, including a cross."
)With regards to the Kotel becoming a sterile security area, bereft of Jewish worshipers , the rabbi said,
“A solution needs to be reached that provides adequate security for the pope without infringing on the right of everyone to pray. The Western Wall belongs to everyone."
Well look who’s accompanying the cross-wearing pontiff
to the Kotel.
And not a Jewish worshiper in sight
Anyone else feeling “double-Crossed’?
