Ratz condemns 80% of July terrorist attacks

Pope Benedict XVI prayed on Sunday for G-d to stop the "murderous hand" of terrorists & convert their minds and hearts to peace. During his noon-time blessing, he referred to the recent
"abhorrent terrorist attacks" in Egypt, Britain, Turkey and Iraq
but failed to mention a 12 July suicide bombing in Netanya proudly claimed by the Islamic Jihad. Needless to say, the Israel Foreign Ministry was a little cheesed off at the omission believing it was an intentional sleight at Jews/Israel (which gets hit with a lot more terrorist attacks/suicide bombings than most countries) and a Vatican spokesmen justified as not being a bit far back in history to be considered "recent".
