Vatican Officially Recognizes Palestinian State

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The Vatican officially recognized the state of Palestine in a new treaty finalized Wednesday, immediately sparking Israeli ire and accusations that the move hurt peace prospects, Ynet News reported.

The treaty, which concerns the activities of the Catholic Church in Palestinian territory, makes clear that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine.

The Vatican had welcomed the decision by the UN General Assembly in 2012 to recognize a Palestinian state. But the treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state and constitutes an official recognition.

"Yes, it's a recognition that the state exists," said the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi. The Israeli foreign ministry said it was "disappointed" by the development. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.ynetnews.com/Ext/Comp/ArticleLayout/CdaArticlePrintPreview/0,2506,L-4657003,00.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Hey Pope, There is no Palestinian State. There has never been one. It's called Israel !! God "loaned out" the land to Gentiles for a while until He decided to form His nation once again !!


    It shall be justice!

    The Jews only regained their land back because of the help of the imperialist countries and after the formulation of its state (1948), began to persecute, murder and rob the local people (Palestinians), with the backing of the UN did a blind eye.

    Because of the Christian belief distorted; where these countries thought were helping to fulfill ancient prophecies.

    Agree ISRAEL is not the DIVINE NATION!

    3 min This film DISCLAIMS all this deception:

    - The God of Israel or the Church? -
