Lieberman says Pope's exoneration could bring about peace

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday, on behalf of the Jewish and Israeli people, thanked Pope Benedict XVI for reiterating that the Jewish people are not responsible for Jesus' death, Israel Radio reported Monday.
Lieberman said that the deceleration would help to bring about peace in the world.
The Pope made the comments in a new book released last week.
Lieberman also asked the Vatican to make its voice heard against the campaign of delegitimizing Israel that is being carried throughout the world.
