Vatican recognizes state of Palestine in new treaty, accepting the Hamas rule of Gaza as a part of the new state.
The Vatican officially recognized the state of Palestine in a new treaty Wednesday, drawing criticism from Jerusalem.
The treaty, which was finalized Wednesday but still has to be signed, makes clear that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestinian Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine.
The Vatican had welcomed the decision by the UN General Assembly in 2012 to recognize a Palestinian state. But the treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state and constitutes an official recognition.
“Yes, it’s a recognition that the state exists,” said the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi. Israeli officials criticized the Vatican announcement.
“We’re disappointed by the decision taken by the Holy See. We believe that such a decision is not conducive to bringing the Palestinians back to the negotiating table,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon told The Times of Israel.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is due to see Pope Francis on Saturday before the canonization of two new saints from the Holy Land a day later.
The text of the treaty “deals with essential aspects of the life and activity of the Catholic Church in Palestine,” a Vatican statement said Wednesday.
The Vatican’s foreign minister, Monsignor Antoine Camilleri, acknowledged the change in status, given that the treaty was initially inked with the PLO and is now being finalized with the “state of Palestine.” But he said the shift was simply in line with the Holy See’s position.
The 2012 UN vote recognized Palestine as a non-member observer state, made up of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem, lands Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war.

When fascist leader Benito Mussolini gifted the Pope the Vatican state in 1929, the totalitarian leader demanded a Roman Catholic recognition of the fascist government in Italy.
The same fascists are ruling in the Vatican today. With a Pope who climbed up the ladders of power in fascist Argentina.
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
The “Christ” of the “Queen of Heaven” in not Jesus of the Bible. I have to warn all people not to accept the dogmas and the doctrines of the Pope. He is an antichrist, and a deceiver of the flock.
Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.
To recognize that the “state of Palestine is there”, is to recognize the Hamas. An Islamic terror organization. Because the Hamas got most votes in the last election in Gaza, and do rule this area populated by Arabs.
When the Pope recognizes “the state of Palestine”, this is more than a recognition of al-Fatha also called the PLO. Because the Pope can not decide which Islamic organization that shall win a possibly new election. Hamas in already the ruler of Gaza. Tomorrow the Hamas might also rule in Ramallah.
To recognize the Hamas, display the Vatican hand in the ongoing “peace process” in the “Holy land”. The Pope and his cardinals are willing to go to any extreme to get rid of the “Zionist state”. The Pope claim he is the custodian and owner of the “Holy land”, not the Jews. He agrees with the forces of Islam. Together they try to find a way to deal with “the Jewish problem”. The Roman Catholic Church and Islam serve the interest of “allah.
The Pope prayed towards Mecca with Muslims during his last visit to Istanbul. The forces of Satan is at work.
Do not have anything to do with these joint forces of evil. But repent, and come out of this great harlot. Expose this religious movement, and warn people of the eternal consequences of staying put.
Surrender your life to Jesus the Messiah and obey Him. He is God of Israel. Father, Son and Holy Spirit is One God. Amen.
