Peace must be fought for

The daily Frankfurter Rundschau writes on the Pope's visit to Israel: "Benedict XVI hasn't said anything wrong yet but that's no reason to praise him, because reserve can only be bought at the price of superficiality. Condemning the Shoah is no great intellectual feat, it's a moral matter of course. Warning of the 'ugly face' of anti-Semitism is nothing more than trite if the pontiff contents himself to raise his finger without saying that it was he himself who rehabilitated a Holocaust denier. The Pope's talk of peace as a gift jars with the reality in the so-called Holy Land, where every child knows that peace is not given to anyone, but must be negotiated and fought for, and that failure can never be ruled out."
