Mr Peres asked Pope Francis to head a parallel United Nations called the “United Religions” to counter religious extremism in the world today.
Former Israeli President Shimon Peres has said that Pope Francis is more powerful than the United Nation when it comes to advocating peace.
While visiting the Vatican earlier today, Mr Peres asked Pope Francis to head a parallel United Nations called the “United Religions” to counter religious extremism in the world today.
Peres said the United Nations and its peacekeepers “do not have the force or the effectiveness of any one of the Pope’s homilies, which can draw half a million people just in St Peter’s Square alone.”
“So given that the United Nations has run its course, what we need is an organisation of United Religions,” Mr Peres said, as “the best way to counteract these terrorists who kill in the name of their faith.”
“What we need is an unquestionable moral authority who says out loud, ‘No. God doesn’t want this and doesn’t allow it,’” he sadded.
Speaking to the Catholic magazine, Famiglia Cristiana ahead of the papal meeting, Mr Peres said: “In the past, most wars were motivated by the idea of nationhood. Today, however, wars are incited above all using religion as an excuse.”
Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, Vatican spokesman, confirmed that Peres, who ended his presidential term in July, had requested the meeting and told the Pope about his idea for United Religions. The Pope, however, did not commit himself to the proposal.
“The Pope listened” to the idea just as he always does with any peace initiative, “showing his interest, his attention and encouragement,” Fr Lombardi said.
But “the Pope made no personal commitment” and reminded Peres that the Vatican has the Pontifical Councils for Interreligious Dialogue and for Justice and Peace — two offices “that are suitable” for supporting or following such initiatives, Father Lombardi said.
Pope Francis also met later in the day with Jordan’s Prince El Hassan bin Talal, who, for the past four decades, has worked to promote interfaith understanding and dialogue around the world.
Fr Lombardi said that, during the 30-minute meeting, the prince talked about the latest activities and “pressing issues” of the various initiatives supported by his Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies. Fr Lombardi said the Pope’s meeting with Mr Peres lasted an unusually long 45 minutes, reflecting the Pope’s “esteem and appreciation” for Mr Peres, whom he earlier praised as a “man of peace.”
The main focus of their talk was Mr Peres’ idea for a “United Religions” organisation and did not touch on current “political issues in any depth” the Vatican spokesman said.

Shimon Peres is an order brother of Pope Francis. They both work for the New World Order, and the New World Religion.
The only stumbling block left, is the civil war among the Sunni and Shia Muslim. The Vatican has what the Muslims do not have. Global acceptance, an independent statehood, and a lone leader as a High Priest.
2 Thessalonians 2:3
Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.
There is no better candidate that the Pontiff. He is the only leader that can lead all people into submission to a “peace plan” and the new Universal brotherhood of all religions. Everyone seems to agree that the Pope is the best leader of the flock, because the loves “all people and god”.
I am not so concerned for the pagans. because they have rejected the gospel. When the Messiah returns like a thief in the night, they will face judgment and perish. But for many years, I have tried to open the eyes of Christians. Warned them. Do not be deceived into an acceptance of the papacy, Reject the false teachers who do not take a stand against his fraudulent claim of authority.
Now we are in the 12th hour. If you do not stand for the truth now, you will most likely have to face the stern judgment that are in the pipeline. Be wise. Repent, or perish.
