Why would not pope come to Gaza and convince Hamas to give up their missiles?

The Pope needs to stay out of it, he created enough problem by going over there playing his politics and religious appeal. Israel is a two face nation, if you confront them politically they will turn to religion. And besides why calling Peres he retired.

No need for the pope to phone Israeli President because he doesn't have any govt power. I wonder why the pope does not talk with Nutt-anyahu? Answer is self explanatory because no many heads of state wantr to talk to this idiot!

^^ Hamas rockets are more like homemade fireworks. To compare IDF with Hamas militia would be like comparing an old donkey with a fully-grown lion.

Hamas calls their operation 'Eaten Straw', so I guess they see the occupation forces as donkeys. The Arabic word for donkey is 'hemar'. It is usually used & taken as a term of offense by Arabic speakers :)
