The Vatican hailed a “Palestinian” state and called for an internationally guaranteed special status for Jerusalem.
In a statement the Vatican said it was a “propitious occasion” to recall a “common position” on Jerusalem expressed by the Vatican and the Palestine Liberation Organisation when the two sides signed a basic agreement on their bilateral relations in 2000.
The Vatican’s re-stating of its position on Jerusalem, which has remained mostly dormant for years, was bound to irk Israel, which says there is no need for an international status for Jerusalem because those guarantees already exist.
Israel declared Jerusalem its “united and eternal” capital in 1980 after annexing East Jerusalem in the Six Day War in 1967. World powers have not recognized the annexation.
Israel has always resisted the concept of any form of international mandate over Jerusalem.
It has been some time since the Vatican re-stated its position on the city so forcefully, and Thursday’s statement was bound to be received negatively by Israel, a diplomat with direct knowledge of their relations said.
Israel has always maintained that it already guarantees the city’s special nature as sacred to the three great monotheistic religions – Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
The Pope has been fighting for the control of Jerusalem for almost 750 years. He lost the ‘Holy City” in 1291 A.D, after ruling there for almost 200 years.
Not so strange, the Vatican became a “peace partner” with the PLO. The Islamic terror-organization was formed in 1964, for the sole purpose of evicting the Zionist rulers from Jerusalem.
We know that the last replacement-Messiah will come and rule in Jerusalem. It will be a brief rule, and a rule based on cheating on the Jews, a rule formed on an ideology of lies and blasphemy against God of the Bible.
We can do nothing to stop this rule. But we can rejoice that it will be brief.
Jesus the Messiah will return and bring a brutal end to this “special regime” invented and promoted by the Papacy.
Paul the Apostle explained that this last man of lawlessness will be killed by the splendor of the return of Jesus.
2 Thessalonians 2:8
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
So: Rejoice, all saints. Be extremely glad.
The Pope, the PLO and the United Nations will all burn on the last day of Judgment. And all who obeyed the Word of God will be gathered home to their mansion prepared for them in the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
