Sparky: Look out! Known Hitler Youth Pope insults Polish Warsaw Ghetto Victims and the Jewish Community!
Not the Pope - someone kinder ...
Hitler Youth & Star Wars' Emperor Palpatine lookalike Pope Benedict shows his true colors proving leopards don't change their spots ...Pope Benedict XVI upset the Jewish Communities of the World in Poland yesterday by not stopping to pay tribute to the victims of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising against the Nazis.
The heavily guarded Popemobile sped from Warsaw airport towards the Old Town district and the former ghetto area but barely slowed when it passed the memorial to the Jewish fighters. Michael Schudrich, the Chief Rabbi of Warsaw, the Israeli ambassador and a handful of Jewish dignitaries were left standing slackjawed as the Pope flashed past with a dismissive wave.
Roman Catholic Church officials said there had been no space in the schedule for a spontaneous stop. Another consideration is that the ultra-nationalist Polish Government might have considered it a slight if the Pope had singled out slaughtered Jews rather than Polish partisans for special tribute on the first day of his visit.
Thousands of Poles, mostly young, lined the streets to cheer and wave flags to welcome the Pope. Then the majority likely returned to their games of Death Camp Commander supplied by associates of the American Neo Nazi Party that my mom spied at a Warsaw hotel her first and last trip to Poland.
Pope's Poland Trip: (May 25 to May 28, 2006): The Pope began his visit just after 11 a.m. on May 25, landing at the Ok?cie Military Airport in Warsaw. After a welcoming ceremony, Benedict drove in his pope-mobile to the Warsaw archcathedral, where he met and addressed, partially in Polish, a thousand clergymen. He also paid an official visit to the Presidential Palace and later in the day will attend a meeting of leaders of various religions. The Pope is scheduled to hold an open-air mass in Warsaw on May 26. During the remaining two days of his trip to Poland, the pontiff will also go to Cz?stochowa, Kraków, Wadowice, Kalwaria Zebrzydowska and O?wi?cim.
Pope John Paul II on a popemobile
Another popemobile, produced by Fiat
The popemobile is an informal name for the specially designed vehicle used by the pope during public appearances. It is a wordplay of the phrase Batmobile. Several models have been used: the first time Pope John Paul II travelled to his home country, the white painted vehicle (one of two made) was based on the Polish mark Star, a small truck from a firm in Starachowice with a speed of 6 kilometres per hour; another was created in 1979 for Pope John Paul II's first visit to Ireland, bigger than the one used today in the Vatican; yet another is a modified Mercedes-Benz with a small windowed "room" in the back where the Pope stands. Since the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II in 1981, the popemobile was fitted with bulletproof glass on four sides. However it was sometimes driven with open windows. In the early days of his papacy Pope Benedict XVI used an open-topped vehicle.
Several vehicles used for the Pope's overseas visits remain in the host country and were reused on his subsequent visits. The Mexican Papamóvil for example was brought out into the public during John Paul II's funeral. Similarly, the Philippines automobile manufacturer Francisco motors produced the custom popemobile for the 1995 papal visit. It cost millions from voluntary contributions in the private sector and, as with the Irish vehicle, it had bulletproof windows, bombproof parts and it was inspected by the Swiss guards with success. When John Paul II died, this popemobile was briefly borrowed by parish officials of the Quiapo Church for display. It became an instant pilgrimage site to ordinary Filipino devotees who could not afford to go to the Vatican for the Pope's burial ceremonies. 
Past popemobiles were adapted Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-road vehicles, and current models are actually based on the ML-series of off-road vehicles sold in the United States. For John Paul II's visit to England, Land Rover produced a specially-modified version of one of its vehicles, which now resides at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas.
Ford Motor Company also produced a series of "popemobiles" for the Vatican based on their presidential limos, for example the custom built 1964 Lehmann-Peterson was used by Pope Paul VI in his 1965 New York visit, and was reused in 1970 in Bogotá.
A six-year-old gray Volkswagen Golf sold on eBay for $244,000, Being the former automobile of Josef Cardinal Ratzinger, the current Pope. This vehicle has been purchased by a Casino which has also been dubbed The Popemobile.
On 25th May 2006 at 11.30pm Ashley Borges and his friend Adam Jackson saw the Popemobile whilst it was being transferred from Warsaw down to Krakow. He was not in the Popemobile at the time but there were 16 police cars as a deterrant and escort to the empty popemobile, therefore signifying the importance that the Popemobile now represents.
