Pope Benedict XVI held his welcoming address Tuesday at Heichal Shlomo, adjacent to Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue.
The Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger said that the pontiff had agreed that the Catholic Church would cease all missionary activity among Jews, and thanked him for the gesture.
The chief Ashkenazi rabbi went on to thank the pope for his «historic agreement and the commitment given by the Vatican, that the Church will henceforth desist from all missionary and conversion activities amongst our people. This is for us an immensely important message».
New Unity religion
The Chief Rabbi concluded by calling to establish:
«An international body, a UN for religions alongside the UN for diplomats and statesmen. There, side by side, around one table will sit the representatives of all the religions. Even those coming from countries that still lack diplomatic relations between them, will sit together to solve conflicts and differences of opinions arising from a religious cause».
«It is my heartfelt blessing that together we will merit to add love, mutual respect and peace in our world,” the rabbi ended his speech. “For each people will walk in the name of his God; And we will walk in the name of the Lord our God…»

The Roman Catholic Church claims that their Pope is the Vicar of Jesus from Nazareth.
The Jewish Messiah gave his followers a mission. They were ordered to go to all nations, and proclaim that He is the Son of God.
Who is the Pope, if he has promised to stop telling the Jewish people about the most famous Jew in the history of man?
The Chief Rabbi need to ask him self questions like: «Who is the Jewish Messiah?» «And when will he come to save the Jewish people?».
