The article focuses on the statement made by Pope Benedict XVI that he is visiting Israel as a pilgrim of peace. The speech by Sheikh Tayseer Tamimi, which is said to damage the efforts of the pope at promoting peace, has made Pope Benedict leave the interfaith meeting in Jerusalem early. It cites the failure of the pope to object to the description of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the Jewish people. It also cites the decision of the pope not to visit Gaza.
