There are few puzzlers about Patriarch Sabbah's pronunciations:

Wasn't it the Catholic Church that rallied and sent the crusaders in the first place? So, who is the "we" he speaks for with this statement?

Isn't the Vatican, his employer, exclusively Catholic, in a way that Israel is not exclusively Jewish??

And on whose behalf is he making these declarations now? The diminishing Christian population in the Palestinian territories, or Muslim fundamentalists like Hamas?

Some chutzpa.
