Celebrity Blog Spot 4

I come seeking... retribution.The next in our series of sleb blogs is that of the pontiffiest man in the world. It's the Pope Blog. While not run by the man himself it has been delegated to the site owner just like overseeing the spirituality of the Earth has been handed down by God to the Pope which is close enough for my flimsy interpretation of 'celebrity blog'.

Besides which after all the interest generated by the greedy corporates post I think we need a moment of spirtuality to provide some inner peace and tranquillity so we can reflect on the real issues in life - like when is Sudeki going to be released?

Citizens for Fair Legislation
For Immediate Release
April 4, 2005
CFL ALERT: ASK YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TO HONOR THE CALL OF POPE JOHN PAUL II FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM FOR THE PALESTINIANS: Pope John Paul II was a staunch supporter of Palestinian self determination. He was a consistent defender of Palestinian human rights and repeatedly called on Israelis and the United States alike to recognize the dignity and humanity of Palestinians under occupation.

In 2000 the Pope visited the Dehaisheh refugee camp in the Palestinian territories, during that visit he said:

?I express all my happiness at being here today. How can I fail to pray that the divine gift of peace will become more and more a reality for all who live in this land, uniquely marked by God's intentions? Peace for the Palestinian people! Peace for all peoples of the region! No one can ignore how much the Palestinian people have had to suffer in recent decades. Your torment is before the eyes of the world, and it has gone on too long.?

?The Holy See has always recognized that the Palestinian people have the natural right to a homeland, and the right to be able to live in peace and tranquility with the other peoples of this area. In the international forum, my predecessors and I have repeatedly claimed that there would be no end to the sad conflict in the Holy Land without stable guarantees for the rights of all the peoples involved, on the basis of international law and the relevant United Nations resolutions and declarations.

?Today and always the Palestinian people are in my prayers to the One who holds the destiny of the world in his hands. May the Most High God enlighten, sustain and guide in the path of peace the whole Palestinian people.?

*Ask your representative to honor the memory of John Paul II by standing up for Palestinian human rights and speaking out against the continued theft of land from Palestinian Muslims and Christians in Palestine.

* Ask your representatives to demand that Israel stop the indiscriminate slaughter of innocent Palestinian men, women and children. Demand that Israel stop building it?s apartheid wall which is cutting Palestinians off from their crops and livelihood.

*Ask your representatives to demand that Israel stop denying travel permits to Palestinians seeking medical care in neighboring Arab countries. It is neither humane nor civilized to prevent cancer patients from traveling from their homes to hospitals to seek treatment.

Seems that blog is dead, not having had a post since 2006. Too bad. Good idea. Particularly if satirical
