(Worthy News)-- The Vatican signed its first treaty with the "State of Palestine" on Friday, calling for "courageous decisions" to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a two-state solution, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Israel expressed disappointment last month at the Vatican's announcement that it reached the outline of an agreement with the Palestinians and at the Holy See’s use of the term “State of Palestine” for the first time in an official document.

The agreement, according to a Vatican statement, "deals with essential aspects of the life and activity of the Catholic Church in Palestine."

Both parties, according to the statement, "agreed that the work of the Commission on the text of the Agreement has been concluded, and that the agreement will be submitted to the respective authorities for approval ahead of setting a date in the near future for the signing." --Source

  1. G-d will deal with the Vatican One Day and many will be shocked! The LORD will bless those who bless Israel and He will curse those who curse Israel!! And this "deal" is a curse on Israel and shows that they do NOT believe The Word Of God! Maranatha, LORD!

  2. How is it within the Vatican's scope of authority to decide
    such things? I think Dave Hunt was right in "A Woman Rides the Beast."
