As late as 1949, the Pope of Rome wanted Jerusalem to become an International Zone. Not the capital of Israel, but the United Nation ruled Palestine.
This is the content of a Papal letter to his Bishops and priests in «The Holy land of Palestine».
Redemptoris Nostri Crucitatus
Encyclical of Pope Pius XII, on the Holy Places in Palestine. To the vererable Brethren, the patriarchs, primates archbishops, Bishops and other Ordinaries.
9. We have never ceased to pray repeatedly for this enduring and genuine peace. And to the end that it might be brought to fruition and permanence at the earliest possible moment, We have already insisted in Our Encyclical letter In Multiplicibus, that the time has come when Jerusalem and its vicinity, where the previous memorials of the Life and Death of the Divine Redeemer are preserved, should be accorded and legally guaranteed an “international” status, which in the present circumstances seems to offer the best and most satisfactory protection for these sacred monuments.
11. Besides, it is of the utmost importance that due immunity and protection be guaranteed to all the Holy Places of Palestine not only in Jerusalem but also in the other cities and villages as well.
12. Not a few of these places have suffered serious loss and damage owing to the upheaval and devastation of the war. Since they are religious memorials of such moment – objects of veneration to the whole world and an incentive and support to Christian piety – these places should also be suitably protected by definite statute guaranteed by an “international” agreement.
Given at Rome, St. Peter’s the fifteenth day of the month of April, Good Friday, in the year 1949, the eleventh of Our Pontificate.

«The International agreement» the Pope was promoting in 1949, will finally be implemented by United Nations. Most likely after pressure from the so-called Quartet, headed by an Anglican turned papist, Tony Blair. The pope of Rome will get a vital role in the formation and regulation of this International Zone, that will have the Temple Mount at its centre. The final anti-Christ will be seated there, and will face his final destiny in Hell on the return of Jesus the Messiah.
