SIDEBAR FROM THE GENERAL AUDIENCE
ON 4/22/09




The Pope accepts a keffiyeh, the typical Palestinian scarf, from one of two Palestinians in a 27-member youth group
from Bethlehem who were at the GA today. I certainly hope Rome's contentious Rabbi Di Segni is not going to see this as
"yet another anti-Jewish gesture" by the Pope!.
