Ahead of Pope Benedict XVI's May visit to Israel, the rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinovitch, has said that it is not proper to come to the site wearing a cross.
In November 2007, he refused to allow a group of Austrian bishops led by the Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Schonborn, access to the site after the clergymen refused to remove or hide their crosses.
At the time Rabinovitch told the Post that "crosses are a symbol that hurt Jewish feelings."
In May 2008, a group of Irish prelates from both Catholic and Protestant churches were prevented from visiting the Western Wall for the same reason.

Chutzpah? Reminds me of the limbo. How low can you go before they beat you with that very stick? Does he renounce Christ and accept the holocaust outright?

This reminds me of vampires.
Yes, and rightly so, in my modest opinion. Perhaps the old Ratz should indeed change his cross for a collar of garlic, and charge in with a quiver of stakes instead of crawling in on his knees as he'll probably do.
Eleison Comments LXXXIX
"Don't cry for me , Argentina", nor readers of "Eleison Comments" in any other part of the world, because you may have thought that the last two months have been difficult for the Eleison Commentator, but actually his condition is, as usual, rather better than he deserves. "Use each man according to his deserts", says Hamlet, "and who should 'scape whipping ?"
When the media onslaught broke out some two months ago with the Pope for its main target, I was myself well protected inside the Seminary of La Reja. Journalists prowled round and around, but they did not get through. I only regret having had to leave La Reja and Argentina in circumstances that left me no chance of correctly taking leave of many Latin American colleagues and friends. Let priests, seminarians and layfolk all accept here the expression of my real gratitude for the five and a half happy years that I spent in their midst. Let everyone praying for me also accept my sincere gratitude. I will celebrate from tomorrow a novena of Masses for all your intentions.
For neither did the Society of St Pius X let me down when I landed in England. The District Superior in England had contacted the right friend of ours in London for there to be a little police escort sufficient to see me straight through the pack of "gentlemen of the Press" lying in wait for me, and ever since then I have been waited on hand and foot in the Society's house in London. No work. No responsibilities. Who could complain?
Moreover the rest-cure looks like it is being prolonged. In a recent interview with the German weekly "Der Spiegel", the Society's Superior General is quoted to have said amongst other things, perhaps under pressure coming through the media - who missed their next onslaught on the Pope traveling to Africa, because he objected to artificial means of birth control? - "If Bishop Williamson is silent, if he stays out of sight, that would really be better for everyone... I hope that he drops out of public life for a long while... He has hurt the Society and damaged our reputation. We are definitely distancing ourselves from him... "
Therefore the future is in God's hands. I wish I could say that I object to being reduced to silence, but if the alternative is being reduced to saying only those things that the "gentlemen of the Press" do not object to, then I think I prefer the silence. As far back as 1985, the year of publication for "Iota Unum", Romano Amerio's famous analysis of Vatican II changes, the Italian Professor was anticipating that a time might come when there would be only silence left... Kyrie eleison.

It seems the Bishop has gagged himself. Now thats novel. Thats brave. Thats certainly going to enlighten and feed the sheep.
I wonder if the Bishop realises he cannot hide? He cannot run away. Silence just will not cut it! The words of his mouth are in the void. They will not go away, they will not fade. They will echo and hammer in the chambers of the never forget, never forgive brigade until the Bishop repents and apologises, or takes up the sword and fights. There is no forgetting and there is certainly no forgiveness coming his way. Just the opposite.
Funny that. I would have thought a Catholic Bishop would know the score, would know the enemy. Obviously not! Welcome to the ranks of the damned Bishop Williamson.
Tit 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
