It was the Israeli government that was encouraging the Muslims to build their Mosque in Bethlehem, and decided to pull back and let the Muzzies run things. There was little or nothing that the Pope could do about it.

It was the American govt that was pressuring Isr to give that land to the Muslims...
at that time, and for far too long in my humble opinion, the Isr govt kept trying to go along with the various American administrations as much as it could, always trying to be a good little helper instead of having the intelligence or courage to (where it has harmed isr or isr’s security) say “respectfully, no...” like any other country does when necessary. This has left Isr much weakened ... as it has undermined the lives of many Christians in the region (think, also, Christians in Lebanon and Egypt)

I do AGREE that ... whether the Vatican could have stopped the harm to Bethleham and especially the Christians there.... is not clear. I think so, but I don’t know for sure...
