Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu presented  Pope Francis Monday with a copy of the book “The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth Century Spain,” a Tel Aviv scholarly publication of some of the worst things the Catholic Church has done to Jews.

The book was written by the Prime Minister’s late father Benzion, who wrote of the Spanish Inquisition, when the church persecuted, and often executed, masses of Jewish converts to Catholicism who were accused of secretly practicing Judaism.

  1. I love Prime Minister Netanyahu! I love his love for Israel and the Jewish people! No apologies for his outspoken stance for Israel's protection and for the world. His brilliant clear headed approach in his fight of anti-semitism is outstanding. I doubt his late father's book “The Origins of the Inquisition in Fifteenth Century Spain” will be read but such a wonderful gift to be placed inside the Vatican! Way to go Bibi!
