  1. How does David’s Tomb belong to the vatican How?! Seriously How?

    Comment by Rosally Saltsman — May 14, 2014 @ 6:28 PM

  2. No, they’ve got it wrong. Wasn’t one of the Popes Jewish? That makes the Vatrican ours. Also since most of the Second Temple’s religious objects were taken to Rome and are rumoured to be in the Vatican, that’s ours too. Throw in Michaelangelo’s David and the Trevi fountain and ship them all to Jerusalem.

  3. They just can’t leave a ‘heavenly’ state alone can they?

  5. How does the Vatican think that the Tomb of King David belongs to them !….Idiots …

    Comment by Kathy Boling — May 14, 2014 @ 6:52 PM

  6. Because this Pope is the false Prophet of Revelations, the 112 Pope and final Pope that will be here during the tribulation.

    Comment by Gary C. Hardin — May 14, 2014 @ 6:52 PM

  7. This Pope is a friend to us. Still David’s Tomb is a Jewish site.

    Comment by Yaacov Asher Lev — May 14, 2014 @ 6:55 PM

  8. Absolutely!

    Comment by Avraham Goodman — May 14, 2014 @ 6:58 PM

  9. The Romans looted so many country’s treasures, and the have it all stashed in their “secret vaults”. Greedy pricks.

  10. because this Pope Francis is a wolf in sheep’s clothing

  11. Saint Peter was Jewish – Jesus was Jewish… problem solved ;)

    Comment by Kay Xiarras — May 14, 2014 @ 7:24 PM

  12. THE POPE MUST NOT VISIT ISRAEL AGAIN. FULL STOP.

    Comment by Kay Xiarras — May 14, 2014 @ 7:25 PM

  13. The Vatican has no claim to David’s Tomb. The nation of Israel does.

    Comment by Jim Copenhaver — May 14, 2014 @ 7:28 PM

  14. Will anyone in the Israeli government stand up and state the obvious, that this site is Jewish? And if the Pope doesn’t understand that, maybe he should stay in Rome. We don’t need him.

    Comment by Nathan Katz — May 14, 2014 @ 7:32 PM

  15. This would be wrong for Israel to do. The Catholics have no business wanting this site. They have robbed from Christians and Jews enough. The wealth in the Vatican is beyond measure.

    Comment by Elizabeth Miller Holder — May 14, 2014 @ 7:33 PM

  16. Re: “pope a friend?” Don’t see how?

    Comment by Ruth Ivanisko — May 14, 2014 @ 7:34 PM

  17. Perhaps, we all need to think outside the box, and ask why?

    Perhaps, by having a 3rd party at this site, will prevent the Moslems from further attacks and vandalism?

    It will be like having the eyes, Israel has been needing.

    No longer can the Moslems get away with their propaganda!

    Comment by Carmen Roman Galindo — May 14, 2014 @ 7:34 PM

  18. Unfortunately, after seeing what the arabs are doing to Christians in Bethlehem and other parts of the West Bank, a Catholic presence in regards to the site will,have no effect on their actions.They merely hate Jews and Christians. Period.

  19. Don’t give control away

    Comment by Patty Hay — May 14, 2014 @ 7:37 PM

  20. So the next question to be asked, will this make things better or worse?
    Remember insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
    Just saying

    Comment by Carmen Roman Galindo — May 14, 2014 @ 7:39 PM

  21. There is nothing to dispute. David was King of Israel. His tomb is in Israel. End of discussion.

    Comment by Alexander Dvorkin — May 14, 2014 @ 7:53 PM

  22. Vatican shouldn’t have any say in the capital of Israel apart from their churches.

  34. Let’s first get back some of the temple loot hiding in the Vatican. And then the pope can still **** himself.

    Comment by Levi Markel — May 14, 2014 @ 8:49 PM

  35. Thank you for making a very clear Christian point, Eduardo. Every day we read how Christians love us and especially our stuff. You have been honest. Jews need to get this straight though I sense that you’re baiting Jews. Jews have nothing except what Christians wish to allow us to have. We have no scriptures–it is an “Old Testament” that is to be accompanied by their “New Testament”. We supposedly have a Jewish state which is virtually governed by gentile, “Christian” countries. Our rabbis, many of them, talk about our masters’ enemies like dogs, but how dare anyone say anything about Christians. Our Jewish and Israeli leaders make appointments to kiss the asses of Christian leaders (not just the pope). And Christians tread down Israel as their own personal territory where they allow Jews to live for their ideological pleasure. It’s sickening.

  51. Israel welcomes visitors and loves its Catholic friends. Does that mean we have to relinquish David’s Tomb for the sake of that friendship? It is a Jewish site, you know.

  60. This is not a ‘neutral’ or sympathetic act on behalf of Christianity. (And there is not essential difference between Protestants and Catholics.) In the Christian delusion, David is the pedigree needed to establish Christian doctrine–David in the lineage of Jesus of Nazareth to allege a kingship–Jesus as allegedly “the son of David” and so the Vatican wants to exert its authority as heir to Jesus as son of David, King of Israel, etc., etc. It is not just a claim to David’s Tomb; it is an acknowledgment that Jesus is King (Messiah). And that is why I would rather see the Tomb destroyed than to support the supposed sovereignty of the Church worshiping Jesus. And any Jew allowing it should be excommunicated than have their picture taken smiling with the pope like a braying jackass.

  61. would love to see the list of confiscated iconic treasures that the catholic church has stolen

    Comment by Charon Piansky-Tauber — May 14, 2014 @ 9:07 PM

  62. Catholicism has stolen much from Jews, as well as ALL Christians. The Catholic Church is NO friend of Israel. For them it is all about money and power.
    The early church was Jewish and kept the Feasts of The Lord. The Catholic Church, in it’s ‘almighty’ authority decided to substitute pagan feasts, such as Easter and Christmas, valentine’s day, May Day and all the rest.
    The Catholic Church was complicit in the holocaust! They have their people bowing down to idols!!!! It is an abomination!!!! Please, Israel…..please do NOT trust this man, nor the monstrosity he represents!!

  65. Cornelia, first of all catholics are christians, we founded the religion, Jesus said, to Peter that he would found his church on Peter, the Pope is the sucesor of Peter, now I dont see how Catholics have stolen from Catholics, I think its the other way around, Catholics visit Israel, and have done so before the Jewish State was founded, the true Catholics saved thousands of jews during WWII, the Pope orderd priests to hand out baptismo certificates to jews so they would not be sent to concentration camps, so please be sensible, if you dont want anti semitism you have to respect other poeples belives,

    Comment by Estrella Maloney — May 14, 2014 @ 9:18 PM

  69. It isn’t a ‘nice gesture’. Sweet of you to say so, but it wasn’t. The Catholic Church is after money and power.
    They have stolen much from the Jews, as well as the early church, which was Jewish.
    Yeshua was a Jew. His followers, which were many, were Jews. They kept the Feasts of The Lord, they kept Sabbath.
    The Catholic Church stole from them, too. They substituted pagan feasts such as Easter, Christmas and on and on. They told the people that they could pray to idols…and they do. They substituted ‘Sun-day’ for the Sabbath.
    What the Vatican is trying to do is beguile the world into thinking it is holy. It is NOT!!
    They were complicit in the holocaust. They are pro-Muslim. They are not to be trusted.
    You seem to be a very kind man. Please. Do not be fooled by this man:-))

  72. Please do not give David’s tomb to the pope because he is an idol which is against God ‘s commandment. He is involved in allowing idols in his Roman Catholic church.

    Comment by Kathleen Francis — May 14, 2014 @ 9:33 PM

  73. I went to a Jesuit school and can attest to the fact that you Eduardo are more than a bit off the rails. Jesus never spoke of founding a ‘church’ . Indeed there are many things that ‘Jesus said’, but all attributed to third , fourth , fifth etc hand reports and mostly ruminating from Sol , a disgruntled coreligionist of Jesus who live 40-60 years after Jesus’ time who never-the less held himself out as the all knower named Paul. In essence it’s not ‘Christianity’ , there’s no such movement , in fact it’s Paulism. Look
    To James, the brother of Jesus ;what did he have to say? The movement led by Jesus could religiously in someways compare to all the various movements in Judaism whether Lubavitcher,
    Satimer,reform, conservative reform ,etc ,(albeit it was just as much a rebellious movement against the Roman oppressors .)What Jesus did say at the end ,completely in keeping with Jewish suffering at the hand of enemies ,was ‘Forgive them Father for they know not what they do ‘;for he was born a Jew, lived his life as a Jew and died because he was a Jew .So until Francis throws off his mantle and accepts that fact and perhaps meditates on why many ‘ Christian ‘priests and ministers convert ( back?) to Judaism( I personally know a few) this entire false brouhaha needs to be put to bed.

    Comment by Eduardo Antonio Baz Harvill — May 14, 2014 @ 10:02 PM

  83. Alan Kardon , you see the Muslims and Catholics as extremists. I suppose you are right. They believe their way is the best way and likely best for them. However, they believe that others should be like them. Oh well, you know where that goes. What if everyone become Jewish, do you think that would work best. However, we have differences in Judaism too. You better believe it. Ultra-orthodox, Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Liberal, etc. etc. etc. Ever see that movie called, 'Stop the World, I Want to Get Off.'Yes, Alan, you do get us thinking and that is very very good.
