The Pope, Moses and a Satellite Dish – The Photo

The New York Times published a wonderful photo of Pope Benedict on top of Mount Nebo, from which Moses is believed to have looked out on the Promised Land. link


The Pope’s magnificent white robe with the mountainous desert landscape background almost carried me away. And then I noticed the cable leading to a satellite dish placed at the top of the hill.

  1. Yeah, but you must admit it was a hell of a photo op! Can't get enough of those if you're the pope, especially the role-playing. Didn't he begin his tour from the ancient site of Ur, Abraham's hometown?
