Israeli police have arrested 2 Jerusalem residents on Friday, for posters that called on the Pope to leave Israel, and return all the looted artifact that the Romans stole from the Second Temple, according to a Jerusalem Post report.

Many believe that the stolen artifacts ended up in the Vatican.


Either way, so much for free speech.



  1. the pope does not represent me or thousands of other Christians,he is a Roman and the head of the Roman church..a church that the Spanish inquisition took place under, crusades that murdered and butchered thousands of Jewish far as I'm concerned, the Roman church will be a part of the anti -Christ in the last days..and they also took part in the Holocaust..

  2. Free Speech within reason(s). I suppose the people involved in the Anti-Pope episode need to find out for the next time what is acceptable and what is not. In other words find out the rules first before taking a stand. Do it legally I presume. Yes, I have heard over time too that the Vatican has stolen items in it collected over time. What can anyone to about that? Suppose they could find out the legal way to obtain the so called stolen items. I wish them good luck.

  3. Mary, all the different Christian groups can be very confusing from Mormans to Jehovah Witnesses to Baptist to Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox. Who has it right. Which group of Christians is on the right pathway? An inquiring mind would like to know.

  4. While many are shunning israel the pope is coming to visit. We need all the friends we can get. This is also a pretty good pope who is willing to engage in dialogue. There are jewish organizations that have access to the pope. The protesters can work with them. I agree that people should be free to express themselves.

  5. ok, this is dumb. The Romans that stole artifacts are now Italians. It has nothing to do with the Vatican. There was not even a Vatican or Roman Catholic church at that time! Even though I don’t support the Pope’s travel and meetings with terrorists, this is a stupid and silly thing. It’s ok to protest, but get your facts right!

  6. I know….. for many people it is just ‘love to like’ ‘love to air my opinion’ and they think everything they see on the internet is true (as long as it confirms what they think or feel). Many people have become members of a brainless generation, bowing over their phones at Starbucks making pictures of their coffee and getting angry within a second without knowing what they are angry about.

  7. I believe that there are artifacts in the Vatican that should be returned to Israel I don’t like statements for the sake of it. I have been to Israel and have seen so much of the artifacts that are for all Christians with Catholic sites over them such as the birth place of Jesus or the home of Peter these are for all Christians not just Catholics. I know that these are not in the Vatican but there would artifacts that are.
