JERUSALEM â€“ Israel's chief rabbinate severed ties with the Vatican on Wednesday to protest a papal decision to reinstate a bishop who publicly denied 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. The Jewish state's highest religious authority sent a letter to the Holy See expressing "sorrow and pain" at the papal decision.
"It will be very difficult for the chief rabbinate of Israel to continue its dialogue with the Vatican as before," the letter said. Chief rabbis of both the Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews were parties to the letter.
The rabbinate, which faxed a copy of the letter to The Associated Press, also canceled a meeting with the Vatican set for March. The rabbinate and the state of Israel have separate ties with the Vatican, and Wednesday's move does not affect state relations....
"The Holy See" should plainly see what everyone sees & that is the irrefutable fact of the Murder of 6 million innocents at the hands of a demon inspired "criminal". I can`t think of another name which does him justice. Just more of the Vatican`s double speak. Israel needs to watch it`s back. Makes me spit.
They never should have had ties with His Unholiness in the first place!
