Achinoam Nini (aka Noa) is an Israeli born singer to a Yemeni-Jewish family. Noa was good friends with John Paul II whom she performed for nine times. She also performed for Benedict XVI and a second time recently at World Youth Day Kraków 2016 for Francis. She is portrayed as a leftist who supports Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) by the Israeli media as she often doesn’t agree with the Likud party’s policies. The reality is far different. She wrote on her facebook page on 11 February 2016:
In an article posted by the Israeli website Walla!, Noa said,
“...two million Catholics are going to meet the Pope when would he find time to meet with an Israeli singer? But the impossible happened. I had a personal meeting [with him]. It's kind of a miracle that happened to me.”
She wrote the following on her facebook page on 11 August 2016:
Two million plus Catholics but Francis has time to meet with a non-Catholic.
What a scandal! Francis gave this woman more time than he gave the family of Asia Bibi.
Francis has more to say to Noa than he has said publicly about the death of Fr. Jacques Hamel.
They pray to the same god of surprises so why not embrace?
Spiritual hugs while the youth outside make chaos.
The second book she gave as a gift to Francis.
Noa previously meeting with Francis at the Vatican. Take note of the book she gave him, To the End of the Land by David Grossman.
