From blog correspondent John Boyden
Israel seeks return of temple artefacts

When Israel's chief rabbis meet Pope John Paul II today, they will seek permission to search Vatican storerooms for artifacts such as the huge golden menorah that stood in the Temple in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago.

JB: No, don't have the menorah, would you perhaps like to see the rooms where THOUSANDS of your people were hidden to escape being killed by the Nazis? I didn't think so.

"My heart tells me this is not the truth, but that it is some kind of camouflage," Amar said.

JB: Still playing the victim role, I see.

According to other press reports, the pontiff could proclaim an annual day dedicated to Judaism, in a fresh effort to further reconcile Jews and Christians.

JB: Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that is NOT rumor?
