Pope uses message to attack hardline Iran
by Christopher Morgan
THE Pope has used his inaugural new year message to launch a veiled attack on Iran’s hardline leadership.
Pope Benedict’s comments follow calls by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Israel to be “wiped off” the global map and his recent dismissal of the Holocaust.
The Pope said: “Authorities who incite their citizens to hostility to other countries bear a heavy responsibility and make the future of humanity more uncertain and anonymous.”
