The Avalon Project at Yale University has the record of how the United Nation wanted a “Special regime” in Jerusalem to be governed.
This is want is written under section C, or the drafted resolution, rules and regulation for the Governor and Administrative staff:
“A Governor of the City of Jerusalem shall be appointed by the Trusteeship Council and shall be responsible to it. He shall be selected on the basis of special qualifications and without regard to nationality. He shall not, however, be a citizen of either State in Palestine”.
In regards to the “state in Palestine”, this means Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan. It was Jordan who attacked, occupied and annexed the Eastern parts of Jerusalem, long time before the PLO launched the idea of an “Arab Palestinian state” in 1964.
Why is this UN instruction important for evangelical Christians?
Because the “Governor” of a special regime in Jerusalem, is expected to be the very office of the last anti-Messiah.
And if the “Governor” can not be a citizen of neither Israel nor the Kingdom of Jordan, this gives us an important message.
The last anti-Messiah will not be a Jew, nor a Muslim from Jordan.
But he can very much be a citizen of the vatican statehood based in the Italian city of Rome.
Here is the full annex given in the United Nation resolution, giving details of the “special regime”.
C. STATUTE OF THE CITY
The Trusteeship Council shall, within five months of the approval of the present plan, elaborate and approve a detailed statute of the City which shall contain, inter alia, the substance of the following provisions:
Governor and Administrative staff.
A Governor of the City of Jerusalem shall be appointed by the Trusteeship Council and shall be responsible to it. He shall be selected on the basis of special qualifications and without regard to nationality. He shall not, however, be a citizen of either State in Palestine.
The Governor shall represent the United Nations in the City and shall exercise on their behalf all powers of administration, including the conduct of external affairs.
He shall be assisted by an administrative staff classed as international officers in the meaning of Article 100 of the Charter and chosen whenever practicable from the residents of the city and of the rest of Palestine on a non-discriminatory basis.
