71 rabbis attack the Pope

Six weeks before the pope trip to the Holy Land, a group of 71 rabbis has attacked the Vatican. In a letter they called on the Israeli government under no circumstances to meet halfway the Holy See in matters of taxation of church properties. The news agency reports the Apic on this Thursday. All the churches that exist today in Israel, says the letter from the rabbi, were the result of the crushing of the Jews 1900 years ago. The Vatican is "the heir of the Roman Empire" that conquered Jerusalem, expelled the Jews and had destroyed their land .

Cathcon: A peculiar accusation, given that the Rabbis would emphatically not want to be blamed for the actions of their spiritual heirs.
