Pope gets anti anti semite award.

In a meeting with Jewish leaders, Pope Francis condemned Jew-hatred, saying it had no place in Christianity.
“Because of our commons roots, a true Christian cannot be anti-Semitic."
This was Pope Francis' first meeting with Jewish leaders since becoming leader of the Catholic Church earlier this year. He met with members of the Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations, the Vatican's "historical Jewish partner" in dialogue.
The Pope added that the Catholic Church
“firmly condemns hatred, persecution and all manifestations of anti-Semitism."
A Jewish leader present at the meeting, David Rosen, Director of International Interreligious Affairs at AJC, said
"Pope Francis is a very good friend of the Jewish People and we rejoice in the fact that he will continue to advance the path of his predecessors in deepening the Catholic-Jewish relationship even further.”
