Christian, Palestinian, Jew: everybody wants a piece of the Pope -- but will they LISTEN?

It seems everybody has a prescription for what the Pope ought to say, or do, when he visits the Holy Land:
* * *

Some of the suggestions are admittedly more sensible othan others (we'll leave that to the debate of our readers). On the other hand, Jacques Monet, a Jesuit priest in Toronto, has a novel suggestion (National Post):

"We should be trying to understand what he's doing there. It is a pilgrimage. A pope should go to the Holy Land because it is the Holy Land. This should become a normal thing for popes to do. If Pope Benedict wasn't going it would be a much larger statement."
