Israeli political agenda Condemned by the Bishops of the Holy Land

The Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land have condemned the U.S. government plan to dispossess the Palestinian people of even more of their land, dismissing it as a unilateral plan endorsing Israel’s political agenda.

“It does not give dignity and rights to the Palestinians. It is to be considered a unilateral initiative, since it endorses almost all the demands of one side, the Israeli one, and its political agenda” whilst at the same time denying “the just demands of the Palestinian people for their homeland, their rights and dignified life.”

The Christian Church has always opposed the Zionist agenda. Theodor Herzl, who is known as ‘the father of Zionism’, approached Pope Saint Pius X in 1904 to try and gain his support for the creation of a Zionist State in Palestine:

“How can we, without abandoning our highest principles, agree to their being given possession of the Holy Land” – Cardinal Merry del Val (January 1904)

“How can we deliver up the country of our Redeemer to a people of a different faith? “ – Cardinal Merry del Val (1st April 1904)

“We cannot give approval to the movement. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem, but we could never sanction it. The soil of Jerusalem, if it was not always sacred, has been sanctioned by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of the Church, I cannot tell you anything different.” – Pope St. Pius X (January 1904)

“The Holy See has never approved the project of making Palestine a home for the Jews,” – Cardinal Luigi Maglione, Pope Pius XII‟s Secretary of State (3rd March 1943)

The Lebanon: A Declaration of War

The Catholic president of The Lebanon, Michel Aoun, has likened Israeli military attacks on the country in the past couple of days to a “declaration of war.”

“What happened was similar to a declaration of war which allows us to resort to our right to defending our sovereignty. We are a people seeking peace, not war, and we don’t accept anyone threatening us in any war.”

Christian Jerusalem is being lost to Zionists

The Christian Patriarchs of the Holy Land and heads of other churches including the Anglicans and Lutherans have issued a joint statement condemning the deceitful sale of hotels in the Christian quarter of Jerusalem to what the Patriarchs described as an “extremist group” of Zionist settlers.

Other strategically-placed buildings were also stealthily obtained in the Moslem quarter and it could result in worshippers and pilgrims being denied access to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the holy places of Jerusalem

A Zionist organisation called Ateret Cohanim obtained the properties in Christian Jerusalem fourteen years ago by using foreign-based third parties as intermediaries to secretly buy the properties from the Greek Orthodox patriarchate. The attempted sale has been subject to a legal dispute for the past fourteen years but on 10th June the Israeli Supreme Court rubber-stamped the sale in favour of the Zionists.

The joint statement of the patriarchs warned that if the Zionist group “manages to evict the protected tenants and take over those properties, Christians and pilgrims would lose their main access to the Christian Quarter of the Old City.”

“The actions of this radical group do not only mean an assault on the property rights of the Greek Orthodox Church, but an assault on the status quo protections for all Christians in this holy city of Jerusalem and deeply threatens the Christian presence in our beloved Holy Land.”

“An attempt to undermine the presence of one Church here undermines all the Churches and the wider Christian community around the world. We reaffirm our belief that a vibrant Christian community is an essential element in the preservation of Jerusalem’s historically diverse society and a prerequisite for peace in this city.”

No War with Iran: Stop WWIII

Iran is looking for war!

Look how close they’ve placed their country to U.S. military bases!

 

Be informed and educate yourselves.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reminds us that:

“They want war in the Middle East. The Battle of Armageddon, at which time Jesus Christ [in reality The Antichrist] will return to the Earth and vanquish all God’s enemies. For certain evangelicals, this is the climax of history. And Trump is taking them there. To the promised judgment, to their sure victory. The righteous will be ushered to heaven; the reprobate will be banished to hellfire.”

“……. They believe that Donald Trump is God’s instrument to move us closer to the Rapture, the Judgment, and the End. Because to them that’s actually the beginning – the beginning of their reward and heavenly bliss.”

Oppose the build-up to war against Iran, World War III, and the ushering in of The Antichrist.
