      The Catholic Pope's Visit To Israel -- Taking Bets

      This is also posted on Shiloh Musings. You're invited to comment there, too. Thanks

      I got the idea for this post from a comment by josh.
      The Roman Catholic Pope Benedict XVI is due to visit Israel very soon. Josh suggested that maybe he'll be bringing one of our Holy Temple Treasures which the Romans stole from the Beit HaMikdash thousands of years ago. I doubt it, because it would admit that they have our property.
      Nu? What do you think? What do you expect the pope to bring us? Israel is planning an outrageously disproportionate gift of our Holy Mount Zion.
