Vatican Condemns Terrorist Attacks
Except Those Against Israelis!

The Vatican issued a statement condemning terrorist attacks in London, Turkey, and Egypt, but has declined to condemn the recent terrorist attack in Netanya, even though the Israelis did not even retaliate against that attack [thanks to BenS for the pointer]:

Initially, the Vatican responded by claiming that the Netanya attack was not included because the Pope was only speaking of "recent" attacks.

But this was hardly convincing, given that the Netanya bombing occurred after the one in London, and took a larger human toll than the attack in Turkey.
For more on the duplicitous response from the Vatican, read this. The response of the Vatican smacks of pure and simple anti-Semitism.
