Fourteen years ago, today, the Zionist military invasion of the Lebanon was defeated.
In this video Julia Boutros, the world-famous Lebanese Catholic singer honours the victorious resistance.
Speaking in regard to the investigation into Beirut’s horrific port explosion, the Lebanon’s Catholic President Michel Aoun made it clear that there “is a possibility of external interference through a rocket or bomb or other act.”
Whilst most of the citizens of Beirut have answered the governments call for everyone to put aside political and religious differences and work side by side to overcome the mass destruction and resulting deleterious social effects, groups of provocateurs and saboteurs have taken advantage of the chaos and have engineered rioting in the streets and even the takeover of some government buildings.
AsiaNews, the press agency of The Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions reports that “dark hands working in the shadows managed to fill the Place des Canons (Martyrs’ Square) not with peaceful and cheerful protesters, but with violent and destructive people.”
It goes on to confirm that the slogans and demands of the protesters “are clearly partisan political demands, not slogans for social justice and against corruption and hunger.”
But, most interestingly, the Pontifical press agency clarifies that:
“The rioters, gathered around former General Sami Rammah, seized the Foreign Ministry, setting it on fire. The building might have contained evidence useful to determine who was responsible for the explosions. The fire burnt large quantities of other sensitive documents as well.
The Economy and Environment Ministries were also occupied, but not set on fire; however, here too, documents were thrown in the air and onto the streets. Such documents could contain evidence of corruption going as far back as 1992, whose principals the government of Prime Minister Hassan Diab sought to punish.
Many people believe corrupt people are behind the riots, trying to get rid of the evidence of their guilt amid the ongoing chaos in order to ensure their impunity.”
In a joint statement issued alongside the Anglican and Lutheran Bishops Emeritus of Jerusalem, Catholic Archbishop Michel Sabbah, the Latin Patriarch Emeritus of Jerusalem, has reminded Catholics that “the Israeli military occupation and colonization of Palestine is the root cause of the on-going conflict.”
The Zionist colonisation of Palestine, the murderous terrorist campaigns carried out by Jewish settlers to achieve their aims, and the military occupation of Palestine by the Zionist State has been consistently opposed and condemned by the Catholic Church for spiritual, moral, theological, and practical reasons.
In 1904 the founder of the Zionist movement, Theodor Herzl, was received in audience by Pope Saint Pius X. The holy pope told Herzl in no uncertain terms that the Christian Church could only oppose the Zionist movement and the colonisation of Palestine by European Jews.
As a prelude to illegally annexing the occupied Jordanian-Arab land of the West Bank the Israeli State has just announced it will fund an illegal settlement called “Trump Heights” for Jewish ‘settlers’ in the illegally-seized and occupied Syrian Golan.
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)

Pilgrims flock to Bethlehem to celebrate Christmas, but Palestinian Christians fear for the survival of their own community in the land of Jesus’ birth
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.”
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.”
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.
Gearóid Ó Colmáin argues that “Sri Lanka’s Catholics are leading the fight against globalisation. It is in this context that one should view the recent terrorist attacks.”
“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
“ “O little town of Bethlehem/How still we see thee lie/Above thy deep and dreamless sleep/The silent stars go by,” runs the famous Christmas carol sung all over the English-speaking world as it celebrates Christmas…….. In today’s Bethlehem “dreamless sleep” is more like a nightmare, and the town can only “lie still” when Israel’s occupation ends.”
“Catholics would be injured in their religious sentiment and rightly fear for their rights if Palestine would belong exclusively to the Hebrews,” – Cardinal Luigi Maglione, Pope Pius XII‟s Secretary of State (7th April 1943)
Not content with bulldozing precious olive groves and the villages of Palestinians to clear the way for new Israeli settlers, and all this in a land which the Israeli State illegally occupies in the first place as a result of a horrendous campaign of terrorism directed against Christian and Moslem Palestinians as well as British Mandate troops and civil servants, the State of Israel has begun to quite brazenly steal land from the Church.
Church owned land will increasingly be targeted by the Israeli State after it seized an initial 66 acres owned by the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, in the Jordan Valley, at the end of November. It’s expected that local Palestinian families will also be forcefully removed from the area to make way for new Israeli settlements.
The Latin Patriarchate issued an official condemnation of Israel’s policy, which can be read here.
“We cannot give approval to this 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 sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of the Church I cannot tell you anything different. The Jews have not recognized our Lord, therefore we cannot recognize the Jewish people.”
– Pope Saint Pius X to Theodor Herzl, ‘Father of the State of Israel’ in response to Herzl attempting to get support for the Zionist project in 1904.
Catholic Poland is under some incredible slanderous attacks from the Anglo-Zionist Empire.
Polish patriotism, which is essentially Catholic in character, is being equated by earthly ‘principalities and powers’ who hate the Faith with Nazism and with Islamic Jihadism.
Stand with Catholic Poland.
“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 sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ.
