The Vatican said it invited leaders of Iraq’s “Jewish community” to a meeting with the Pope on Saturday, despite the fact that Muslims violently purged the Jews from the country decades ago.
For the interfaith gathering hosted by Pope Francis during his visit Saturday near the biblical site of Ur in Iraq, the Vatican made it a point of telling journalists that representatives of Iraq’s Jewish community were invited to attend, the Associate Press reported.
The Vatican didn’t bother telling the reporters why none showed up. The Pope was in Iraq to strengthen its persecuted Christian community, and Vatican officials failed to explain that the Jewish community representatives didn’t come to the gathering because Iraq’s once thriving and proud Jewish community of 150,000 fled the country decades earlier in the face of massacres, rabid government-sanctioned anti-Semitism, and pogroms.
Only a handful of mostly elderly Jews remain in Iraq today, where for thousands of years Jews had lived peacefully among Arabs. That era ended beginning with World War II when the Iraqi government became allied with Adolf Hitler and pushed the Nazi’s anti-Semitic message to the Iraqi people.

I sure remember that part, it's supposed to be seen as humility - but the Mouse-slime see that they are above all laws!
As long as no one gets into a ranging fit,
I don't really care or want to know more!
No one from the UN complained about it, since they cannot be liable to our manstream media and its propaganda.
