Vatican terror threat thwarted?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Dec 27, 2003

According to an AP story, Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has revealed that terrorists planned to crash a plane into the Vatican on Christmas Day.

The story seems a bit fuzzy; Italian officials say that Berlusconi's statement was not official (whatever that means). But it matches what we had heard eariler: that the Israeli Mossad had warned about a terrorist threat against a high-profile Christian target.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
