“Catholics are not foreigners here. They are an integral part of life of the State of Israel”.
The Vatican cleric says of agreement that will settle outstanding taxation issues normalize Catholic presence in the country .
Israel and the Catholic Church will soon sign an agreement that will regulate financial relations between them, according to senior Catholic officials in Jerusalem. Clerics say the long overdue agreement will settle outstanding taxation issues and will normalize the Catholic presence in Israel.
“The idea is to give a juridical frame and to say that Catholics are not foreigners here — they are an integral part of the life of the State of Israel,” Father Pierbattista Pizzabella, the Custos (custodian) of the Holy Land responsible for the Christian holy sites, told a group of journalists including The Media Line. “Catholics must have a clear position according to the law and international agreements.”
The Catholic Church also owns large amounts of property in Israel and there have been disputes over whether all of that property is tax-exempt.
The Roman Catholic Church should continue to be branded as a “foreign entry” in Israel.
I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false.
First: Catholicism is not the faith of the Jewish people, and it is not the faith of Christians either. It is not the original Christianity formed in the first century, but a New Age copy that was established in the years after 315 A.D in the capital of the pagan empire of Rome.
Second: The representatives of the Roman Catholic Church are not loyal to the state of Israel. They represent the Vatican statehood in Rome. Italians have always been, and should still be branded as foreigners in Israel.
Third: The Roman Catholic Church is guilty of horrible crimes against the people who lived in Israel. Like during the crusades. What the Vatican statehood claim as their properties in Israel, are all stolen land. It was particularly stolen in the years 1099 A.D to 1291 A.D, when the Pope occupied Israel. These properties should be gifted back to the Jewish nation, and in the future be governed by Hebrew Christians.
Forth: The Roman Catholic Church do not represent Evangelical Christians. Their claim of supremacy over Christendom is built on a fabrication of Church history, and perverting Biblical truths.
So there is no need to accept any of the demands of the Vatican.
