A King, a Pope & a Sword of Peace

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and Pope Benedict XVI, in an historic first visit by a Saudi monarach to the Vatican, pledged to work for peace and build closer religious ties at an historic meeting at the Vatican in Rome on Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah presented the Pope with a very ???? gift - a golden sword studded with jewels, and a gold and silver statue of a palm tree and man riding a camel.

This week's Parshat Toldot, Yitzchak Avinu, zs'l, blesses Esav ועל חרבך תחיה By your sword you shall live...



והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
