ROME, April 30 (UPI) -- Israeli President Shimon Peres met with Pope Francis in the Vatican Tuesday, inviting him to Israel and seeking help restarting the Palestinian peace process.

Peres told Francis he has a unique and potentially very helpful role in restarting the dialogue between Israel and the Palestinians, Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

"The citizens of Israel see in you a leader of peace and good will," Peres said. "The sooner you visit the better, as in these days a new opportunity is being created for peace and your arrival could contribute significantly to increasing the trust and belief in peace."

The Catholic News Agency reported Francis was pleased to hear of a renewed commitment toward peace in the troubled region home to some of the holiest sites in Islam, Christianity and Judaism.

The Vatican released a statement saying "a speedy resumption of negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians is hoped for."

"So that," it added, "with the courageous decisions and availability of both sides as well as support from the international community, an agreement may be reached that respects the legitimate aspirations of the two peoples, thus decisively contributing to the peace and stability of the region."

I like the way Bibi is looking at Peres, as Peres gets dumber every year, apparently.

Unfortunately Bibi talks dividing Israel - a huge no-no to the God of Israel.

But .... it shall come to pass ... just as prophesied.

He's under pressures from both inside and outside Israel.

My first thought was Bibi was keeping an eye on those two nitwits trying to undermine him.

Don't know why, but this old song came to mind:

"Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you."

One of the members of Stealer’s Wheel was Gerry Rafferty who performed ‘Baker Street’ - the song was played on a local pop station like 100 times a day it seemed.

This makes me SICK

The Pope always prays for peace.

Now Peres is involving him and he won’t say, “no.”
