Vatican Signs Peace ‘Treaty’ With Non-Existent ‘State of Palestine’

Those criticizing Pope Francis as the “Red Pope” have yet another reason to rail against him with the announcement that the Vatican has signed a new peace treaty with the “state of Palestine” despite the fact that no such state exists not to mention that the Palestinians are a terror group whose chief goal is to kill all Jews–a goal the Palestinians have steadfastly refused to change.

The AP reports today that Vatican Foreign Minister Paul Gallagher signed a treaty with the terrorist state of Palestine in order to “help stimulate peace with Israel.”

Israel said that it regrets the move saying it would tend to discourage the Palestinians from returning to direct peace negotiations with Israel and warned that it would study the agreement “and its implications for future cooperation between Israel and the Vatican.”

The Vatican’s Gallagher, though, said he hoped the Vatican’s move “may in some way be a stimulus to bringing a definitive end to the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which continues to cause suffering for both parties.”

But how stupid is that? Why would the terrorist state of Palestine see any need to negotiate with Israel if it is getting its way with outside agitators like this Red Pope? After all, why negotiate and possibly have to compromise when you can use outside agitators to push your terroristic policies?

So, placating terrorists will get them to change their mind? No, Red Pope Francis, it won’t. It will just convince them that their star is on the rise and that all they have to do is push harder for their goal: the death of all Jews.

Do you agree that all Jews should be killed, Francis? Seems like you do because what you have done, Pope Francis, is to give the green light to kill Jews. Your fealty to your left-wing political ideology over your religious duties just made the world a more dangerous and genocidal place.

    Meh, it doesn’t mean much. The palestinians rarely observe treaty commitments unless it benefits them. Besides, how many divisions does the Pope have?

    As a Jew who strongly supports Israel I don’t read too much into this. His relations with the Jewish community were excellent. This pope attempts to be a friend of everyone, but his friendship with the Jewish community is quite solid and strong…

    So the Vatican won’t attack the Palis? So what? As if we needed more proof that the RCC hierarchy is full of anti-semites. Nothing new here.

  • Much to do about nothing… as usual when coming from WTH writing about this Pope:

    Much attention has been given to the fact that in its May 13 announcement, the Holy See referred to its agreement with “the State of Palestine” rather than the Palestinian Liberation Authority, or some other title.

    However, the Vatican has been referring to the “State of Palestine” at least since January 2013, and the Annuario Pontificio, the Vatican’s official yearbook, lists a diplomatic relationship with the “State of Palestine.”

    So the initial use of “State of Palestine” in an official Vatican text is entirely in line with its longstanding support for the establishment of a Palestinian state as part of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    The leader of the Vatican delegation to the bilateral commission is Msgr. Antoine Camilleri, under-secretary for the Holy See’s Relations with States; the Palestinian side was led by Ambassador Rawan Sulaiman, assistant minister of foreign affairs for multilateral affairs.

    Msgr. Camilleri was interviewed by L’Osservatore Romano about the terms of the agreement, and noted that the Holy See “welcomed the outcome” of the November 2012 United Nations vote which recognized Palestine as a non-member Observer State.

    “The reference to the State of Palestine and the affirmations in the accord are therefore in continuity with what has been the position of the Holy See,” Msgr. Camilleri said.

    The Vatican-Palestinian agreement recognizes freedom of religion in Palestine, and outlines the rights and obligations of the Church, its agencies, and its personnel in the territory. The comprehensive agreement follows upon a “basic agreement” which was signed in February 2000.

    So there is nothing new in what took place… but WTH, as is his wont, ignorantly sees what he believes to be yet another opportunity to throw bromides at Pope Francis, a most holy and Godly man.


    • Then again your apologia reads as …a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

      • If ad hominems are all you’ve got, and apparently, it is, then all I can say in response is… as usual… patheticism rules for you (and of course WTH). You must both be joined at the hip.

        I welcome a substantive response but if you’re simply going to toss insults, save yourself the aggravation… it hurts you more than it does me.
