VATICAN CITY Pope Francis, in his Easter address on Sunday, called for peace in the Holy Land two days after 15 Palestinians were killed on the Israeli-Gaza border, saying the conflict there "does not spare the defenseless".
The pope made his appeal in his "Urbi et Orbi" (to the city and the world) message from the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica to tens of thousands of people in the flower-bedecked square below where he earlier celebrated a Mass.
He also appealed for an end to the "carnage" in Syria, calling for humanitarian aid to be allowed to enter, and for peace in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Francis appeared to refer directly to the Gaza violence last Friday, calling for "reconciliation for the Holy Land, also experiencing in these days the wounds of ongoing conflict that do not spare the defenseless."
Israel's defense minister has rejected calls for an inquiry into the killings by the military during a Palestinian demonstration that turned violent at the Gaza-Israel border.

Pope joke needs to go live in Gaza for a couple of months without his Staff and security personnel. Go stay with those Priest and missions there.....
Francis is a commie idiot.
I would like for him to go to the Hell he says doesn’t exist.
So what Francis, no one is going to hell for it because it doesn’t exist. So why are you harping on it? Why are you pointing out what you perceive to be evil? Why are you also always one-sided in the numerous Jewish Islamic conflicts?
All of the above. Even Hamas admitted that they were slipping soldiers and terrorists in with innocent shields. Pope wants to get his hands on Israel - that has always been the case.
All 3 except I am not sure Frankee is simply misinformed. He is a leftist mole who became Pope and is hollowing out the church from within.
They are not defenseless. All they have to do is stay away from the border with Israel.
Indeed and they were previously and adequately forewarned. Unless their so called “leaders” failed to pass on the information.
Did he mention Hell?
Any mention from ill Papa of Israelis threatened or killed by the defenseless .
Everytime Bergoglio opens his mouth, he flatulates.
Hes a disaster
And my Catholic wife agrees.
I wrote to him on Twitter, asking him if he thinks there is no hell, then let’s see him sit through a Hillary speech for a few minutes and then get back to me on that.
Pope Francis knows exactly what is happening in Gaza and he is lying about what is going on there.
He seems to be on the side of the Islamic radicals.
Nothing about defenseless babies, or defenseless humans in nightclubs, or walking along the street, or flying in a plane, or working in their office.
Not a word about hell.
the muhammedans are getting what they deserve. That is the Biblical definition of justice
Either these media are full of sheet or pope Francis is full
Of sheet. Probably both.
Does this “Pope” even Know what Easter is all about?
