Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu welcomed Pope Francis to Israel at Ben-Gurion Airport on Sunday.

Netanyahu said that his visit was an "important chapter in the history between Jews and Christians."

"I praise the good relations the Holy See and the Jews know in our times," Netanyahu said.

"In the heart of the turbulent and violent Middle East Israel is an island of tolerance," Netanyahu told the pontiff.
