“Although the Fathers of the Church speculated on the Antichrist in various ways……. They showed the temple to be the Jewish temple, rebuilt by Antichrist in Jerusalem……. the early Fathers identified the Antichrist as a government official — a king coming to power in the ruins of the Roman Empire……. He would then seduce many of the Jewish people by attempting to fulfill the political.aspirations they held for the Messiah.”
“In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a Shrine of the Prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah.” – David Ben-Gurion, 1962
“If the purpose of Zionism is to transform the sublime visions of our heritage into reality here on earth, wouldn’t its true fulfillment be the realization of Isaiah’s vision here in this temporal city? Shouldn’t our purpose be to draw to Jerusalem the most spiritual and humanist of institutions? Isn’t it only fitting that Jerusalem be the seat of the U.N.’s cultural bodies, human rights organizations, scholarly forums and workshops of intellectual endeavor? And finally, isn’t it only proper that Jerusalem be the place where members of all faiths convene to renounce their breeding of prejudice, hostility and war, and work to fashion world peace?
This is not a utopian vision appropriate only to the End of Days. Meetings and discussions are already in progress among Jews, Muslims and Christians with the aim of making Jerusalem into the capital of peace and home of a U.N. for all religions.” – Rabbi Menachem Froman, 1999.
“We cannot give approval to this movement. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem — but we could never sanction it.” – Pope Saint Pius X
