Netanyahu pays tribute to Pope
Catholic World News - February 19, 2013
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has paid tribute to Pope Benedict in a letter publicized ten days before the Pope’s resignation takes effect.
“In the name of the people of Israel, I would like to thank you for everything you did in your capacity as pope in the name of strengthening ties between Christians and Jews and between the Holy See and the Jewish State," Netanyahu said.
“I thank you also for bravely defending the values of Judaism and Christianity during your papal term,” he added. “I have no doubt that these values, which were so crucial to building the modern world, are no less critical for ensuring a future of security, prosperity, and peace.”
