Ronald Reagan: Where Can’t He Be Found?

Wall Eyed  Pope Benedict XVI criticised the concrete security wall

“In a world where more and more borders are being opened up – to trade, to travel, to movement of peoples, to cultural exchanges – it is tragic to see walls still being erected,”

In a development sure to irritate both Ronald Reagan’s traditional American fan base and Israel’s, Pope Benedict drew comparisons to Reagan’s immortal Berlin Wall speech during his visit to the occupied Palestinian territories.

The Pope called for Palestinian statehood, and denounced Israel’s “anti-Fascist protective rampart” in classically vague Papal pronouncements.  The Holy Father said walls “do not last forever” and “can be taken down.”

In Vatican terms, almost a declarative statement!

Perhaps Israel needs to work up a variation on another Reagan infrastructure declaration:

We bought it. We paid for it. It’s ours. And we’re gonna keep it
