Pope arrives in Israel, condemns anti-Semitism

2009-05-11

In his first speech on Israeli soil, the Pope said that Jews and Christians share important values like human dignity and respect for religious freedom.

Benedict XVI
The just ordering of social relationships presupposes and requires a respect for the freedom and dignity of every human being, whom Christians, Muslims and Jews alike believe to be created by a loving God and destined for eternal life.

The Pope went on to condemn anti-Semitism around the world, and said his trip would serve as an opportunity for him to honor the memory of those who lost their lives in the Holocaust.

Benedict XVI
Sadly, anti-Semitism continues to rear its ugly head in many parts of the world. This is totally unacceptable. Every effort must be made to combat anti-Semitism wherever it is found, and to promote respect and esteem for the members of every people, tribe, language and nation across the globe.
