Skip to comments.Pope meets Palestinian leader; Vatican calls Jerusalem holy
Posted on 01/14/2017 2:24:50 PM PST by Olog-hai
The Vatican stressed the sacred nature of Jerusalem on Saturday as the Palestinian leader warned that prospects for peace could suffer if the incoming Trump administration goes ahead with plans to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The developments came as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with Pope Francis and inaugurated the Palestinian embassy to the Holy See.
Abbas said he had only heard through news reports of the proposal by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to move the embassy to Jerusalem. [ ]
The Vatican has long sought an internationally guaranteed status for Jerusalem that safeguards its sacred character. In its communiqué after the Abbas meeting, the Holy See didnt refer to Jerusalem by name but said during the talks emphasis was placed on the importance of safeguarding the sanctity of the holy places for believers of all three of the Abrahamic religions.

I wish this Pope would stop being so open to Islamic (pretend) leaders.
This Pope should be called to his final reward, sooner rather than later, before he does more damage!
It pains me to understand where you are coming from there.
Yes it may be holy, but Islam is profane, so what’s his point?
Midway through that “peace” no man will be able to buy or sell without the Mark of the Beast.
The world laughs it off. It will be a stark, stark reality.
LOL, you mean Trump didn't gift him with a personal phone call?
Crusades any one. He is on an apology tour for western civilization.
God says that land belongs to Israel...Your pope and church say it belongs to the descendants of Esau...There is going to be a final battle over that land...You know who loses???
Pope Urban II proclaimed the first crusade in 1095 with the stated goal of restoring Christian access to the holy places in and near Jerusalem.
There is no State of Palestine. No Arab country wants the Palestinians in their country. The Palestians that live in Israel receive education and medical care, The Arabs of Israel have made gains i Israel in termsw of getting help. Palestians have no land. What land is there for them - Gaza Strip.

Jerusalem is not an international city.
It’s the capital of the nation of Israel .\
God gave it to the Jewish , he didn’t give it to Arabs , he didn’t give to the Vatican , he did not give it to the nations. He gave it to ONE nation , the Hebrew nation.
Anyone other than the Hebrew people trying to claim it as theirs are liars and covetous thieves . The Vatican is included in the covetous thieves .
Another major indicator of the prophesied End-of-Years Esau-Ishmael alliance.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
In fairness, if the Pope didn't refer to Jerusalem by name, maybe change the headline.
