Newspaper: Pope Francis Didn’t Call Mahmoud Abbas “an Angel of Peace”


abbasA BBC reporter claimed that Pope Francis said, “you are an angel of peace,” while presenting a gift to PA leader Mahmoud Abbas. 

However, the Vatican reporter for the Italian newspaper La Stampa wrote that Francis said:
“May the angel of peace destroy the evil spirit of war. I thought of you: may you be an angel of peace.”

Tom Gross of the Weekly Standard also reports that Pope Francis told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that he could be an angel of peace. The pope did not say that Abbas was an angel of peace.
