JNS.org – The Vatican’s treaty recognizing the “state of Palestine” has come into full effect, the Holy See announced over the weekend.

The treaty, signed in June 2015, affirms a two-state solution, recognizes “Palestine” as an equal partner with Israel in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and intends to protect the rights of the Catholic Church to operate in disputed Palestinian territories.

“The agreement, consisting of a preamble and 32 articles, regards essential aspects of the life and activity of the Church in Palestine, while at the same time reaffirming the support for a negotiated and peaceful solution to the conflict in the region,” the Vatican said in a statement.

In May 2014, Pope Francis said that both Israel and “Palestine” have a right to exist.

    Why not. If he had another idea other than recognizing Palestine and expressed that view publicly peaceful Islam would start burning the Vatican down, burning Catholic church’s, and killing the clergy worldwide. Now that is going to happen anyway…..his decision to recognize Palestine may slow down the process and that will give him time to circle the world reminding the international community that global warming is a bigger threat than Radical Islam. This Pope is desperate and on the run doing the Harlem shuffle to appease Obama and the Islamic shuffle to appease Islamic radicals. He will become quite the dancer as he walks over the coals of burning Catholic church’s. If he wants to be safe playing the game he needs to put up prayer towers around the Vatican playing Allaaaaaa Akbar, Allaaaaa Akbar.

    The Kingdom of Jordan is the national home for the Palestinian Arab Muslim people.

  • One fraud recognising another fraud. when the coptic pope in Alexandria is without temporal power the catholic pope supported hitler and made the catholics to vote for him. The catholic pope made treaty with Mussolini and got this vatican. So it is not strange in one fraud recognising another fraud
