Did Pope Francis really call Abbas "an angel of peace"?

Brian LilleyArchive

Pope Francis met with Palestinian Authority President Abbas over the weekend, and reportedly said something shocking.

Depending on which translation you accept, the Pope either said to Abbas, "You are an angel of peace" or "May you be an angel of peace."

The mainstream media is running with the first translation because it suits their agenda.

But does that interpretation really make sense, especially under the circumstances?

I explain why not, and why this may be just another example of irresponsible reporting by the mainstream media.

Tell me what you think!

“…moved onto other religions.”

Gee, let me think. Whom could Brian be talking about?

I think the pope, what ever way he phrased the angel of peace message to president Abbas was to plant the mustard seed of peace in him, to try to discourage more violence in Palestine. The pope is only trying to spread peace in his own way. Even if he called Abbas an angel of peace (barf) it is with good intention only. Everyone is quick to jump on the pope’s back all the time to try to discredit him.
