The Vatican Agenda:
How Does The Vatican
View The Legitimacy of Israel's Claims To Jerusalem?
Most within both Houses of Israel have probably never thought very much about what the
Roman Catholic Church/The Vatican thinks about "end of days" theology. Jews
themselves don't give much thought to what will happen when "Gog and Mogog"
takes place. Jews don't go in for anything the least bit "next world" but
instead are firmly planted in the here and now. That's good.
However it doesn't matter what Jews think, what matters is what The
Vatican believes, and why it believes this. Judaism, and modern Jewish thought
pretty much just dismisses the basic tenets of Catholicism outright and doesn't
even bother addressing the core questions of what is behind "Catholic
Instead of taking what they believe seriously, we tend to snicker
amongst ourselves when we see those pictures of obscure rituals and ceremonies,
and think the whole religion is near pagan-like with the "eating of Holy Wafers"
and "sprinkling of Baptism water" on people's heads. That may be true, but that
doesn't matter. What matters is what they believe and what they plan to do about
making their beliefs become a reality.
The institution of "The Vatican" is not understood by both
houses of Israel. The conventional wisdom you get from the spokespersons in Israeli
government ministries and the conventional Israeli media is "both sides have
great intentions to do good" and that's about it. When it comes to Israel’s
bi-lateral affairs, nothing much gets investigated by the Israeli media. Thus a
secret deal could be done between the Vatican and the State of Israel and nobody
in Israel would ever find out about it.
In fact, that is exactly what happened.
This essay will provide the background to that deal, as well as what
the Vatican’s intentions are regarding Israel and The Old City Of Jerusalem. It
will reveal which Israeli politicians made certain commitments to The Vatican
regarding the issue of sovereignty in the Old City of Jerusalem. These
negotiations and meetings were all carried out in secret. During this time
period, 1992-l995, the Oslo Accords was what got all the public's attention.
Oslo was like "throwing sand in the eyes" of the public. The Vatican is where
the real action was happening. Oslo seemed to be just the cover story. A “red
herring”, if you will.
What Does The Vatican Want?
It can't be that the Vatican is only interested in "access to their
Holy Sites" in Jerusalem. They already have that as well as legal jurisdiction
under Israeli law for their institutions and assets in Jerusalem. Also, when
these "Holy Sites" were under the jurisdiction of the Jordanians from l948-l967,
no Pope demanded the "internationalization of Jerusalem".
It is something else, which the Vatican wants. The Roman Catholic
Church, need to have certain versions of events be played out for them to stand
in front of mankind and proclaim: our Messiah has returned.” Of course, to the
Jews, this Messiah will be as false as the first one was supposed to be. Don’t
matter. This is the goal of the Vatican and this is what all Israelis need to
The Vatican/Roman Catholic’s version of events is this:
They know this isn't the end of the story that the Jewish G-d had in
mind, but that doesn't mean they won't try and engineer their own ending to the
story. So what if it is fraudulent. Doesn't matter, that is their game plan and
that is what matters and that is what Israeli Jews need to be better informed
about. It is important for everyone to know what The Vatican have up its sleeve
because it directly relates to our existence and our future destiny as an
independent nation. This a very powerful force this is scheming to get control
of the Old City of Jerusalem so you better know why and how the Vatican intends
to do this. Once you have all the facts and the chronological record you will be
better informed deal with this issue and of foreign control over Israel's
political existence and destiny.
First, you have to realize that for centuries The Vatican has attempted
to obtain control of Jerusalem, which started with the Crusades. For them to
convince the world that the Messiah they put on the world's stage is going to be
accepted as genuine, they need to perform this play in the Old City. The story
of this production is that this "Messiah" will merge the three monotheistic
religions, usher in peace and harmony in the world, and solve the Middle East
conflict. The location for this "production" will be in none other than the Old
City of Jerusalem.
This so-called "Messiah" that will be proclaimed, will be a false one
and it will insist that by having a "world government" (i.e., the United
Nations) the world peace and harmony will be ushered in. This will be a lie, and
a fraud, but never mind. In our world, reality isn't important. Public
perceptions are. The end result is the stripping of Israel's sovereignty as an
independent nation giving way to a "regional bloc of nations" in the Middle
East. Israel will be pressured to accede to these demands by all world bodies
and the superpowers on the claim that "this is the only way to solve the Middle
East conflict). In order for the Jews to go along they will convince them that
with the "Messiah" having appeared for the Jews, it is time to start rebuilding
the Third Temple- what they call "Solomon's Temple". This version of events is
widely available through a simple search on the Internet as there are many
Christian groups and organizations (the majority of which who are very
pro-Israel) who don’t buy into these beliefs and thus are against them. I didn’t
come up with the theory- I am just brining it to the attention of the Israeli
Make no mistake about it. The Old City of Jerusalem, as well as most of
the eastern half of the city, is what The Vatican is after.
Because controlling the entire Old City of Jerusalem (and not just
Church properties) and being able to build whatever they want on Mount Zion is
critical for the program they have planned to put into play in our capital city.
The deal that it has signed with Israel via Yossi Beilin and Shimon Peres (in
secret and without the approval of the Knesset) gives The Church not only
extraterritorial status to their properties (which is what the bi-lateral
agreement the Israeli government signed with the Vatican on December 30th, 1993,
put in law) but of control over the entire city as "custodians" under UN
presence. In this way the Jews will give up control over the Old City. To the
Vatican the Israeli people would have a problem with. To the UN, they would say,
"we had no choice"
A Chronology Of The Attempt By The Vatican To Displace Israel From The
Old City Of Jerusalem
The “Chronology of Events” for the Vatican’s conquest of the Old City
of Jerusalem is as follows- all of which can be verified via the sources of the
On October 12th, the head of the World Jewish Congress, Edgar Bronfman,
is appointed head of the International Jewish Committee of Inter-religious
Consultation to conduct officials contacts with The Vatican and the State of
On March 17th, Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek says: "The Israeli
government should meet the Vatican's demand to apply special status for
On April 1st, The Vatican announced that it "favors a Labor victory" in
the June 1992 general elections in Israel.
On April 15th, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, one of the highest ranking
diplomats at The Vatican, visits Israel for the first time but only meets with
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek.
The story of The Catholic Church's attempt to abscond with the Old City
of Jerusalem from the Jews begins in July 1992. According to the information on
the Foreign Ministry website, literally from the moment the new Rabin-led Labor
government took over from Yitzhak Shamir's defeated Likud party, secret talks
with the Vatican and the State of Israel began. What precipitated these secret
talks? Who arranged these talks, and why? Why were they kept secret from the
Israeli public? What was the end result of these agreements? Where do they stand
today? The entire subject of Israel's bi-lateral relations with the Vatican is
intentionally kept locked away in secrecy. It is no wonder that nobody in Israel
knows much about "Israel-Vatican relations" as it is never, ever reported on in
the Israeli press.
The official story of the origins of Israel's "secret channel contacts"
between Beilin's negotiating team and the Vatican comes about as a result of
Shlomo Gur, a personal aide to Deputy Foreign Minister Yossi Beilin, who knew
someone who put him in touch with Father David Jaeger. Father David Jaeger was
president of the Catholic Court in Austin, Texas, and was brought up as an
Israeli orthodox Jew who then converted to Catholicism and became a Father (not
something that has happened to many Israelis who grew up Orthodox). From there,
which according to the information on the Israel Foreign Ministry website was in
July 1992 right after the new Rabin government took over power, nothing is known
about the discussions until the agreement is signed on Dec. 30th, 1993. Nothing
in the Israeli press. The info given on the actual agreement signed was very
minimal and general in tone. This is probably one of the most important
political contacts Israel has in the world's "power structure" yet it isn't
reported on in the press. Thus no Israelis know about it. That is how it remains
The document which was used as the underlying ideological basis for the
Vatican's secret deal with Yossi Beilin and Shimon Peres was personally authored
by Beilin. "The Illegitimacy of Israeli Sovereignty Over Jerusalem" outlines the
Israeli government's program for the future of Jerusalem and calls for the
division of the Old City into cantons whose border posts will be under UN
The plan which led to the December, 1993 agreement between The Vatican
and the State of Israel was originally discussed in November 1992 at the exact
same time the first meetings in London took place to discuss an agreement
between Israel and the PLO which led to the Oslo Agreements. The real goal was
the Vatican attempt to take over the Old City of Jerusalem. Oslo, or, "peace
between Israel and the Palestinians" was just a good cover story to hide what
was really going on in another sphere of Israel's foreign affairs.
On the 10th of September, just three days before the signing of the
Oslo Accords in Washington, the Italian newspaper La Stampa reported
that then Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, a Jesuit, concluded a secret deal with
the Vatican to hand over sovereignty of Jerusalem's Old City to the Vatican. the
agreement and it was included in the secret clauses of the Declaration Of
Principles signed on September 13th, 1993 in Washington, DC.
In the same week that Israeli Foreign Minister and chief Oslo architect
Shimon Peres signed the Declaration of Principles with Yasser Arafat in
Washington, the Israel-Vatican commission held a special meeting in Israel.
Under the Vatican agreement the Israelis would give over control the Old City to
the Vatican before the year 2000. The plan also calls for Jerusalem to become
the second Vatican of the world with all three major religions represented but
under the authority of the Vatican. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel
but the Old City will be administered by the Vatican.
Arafat agreed to the plan just before the famous "handshake" in 1993,
but when he realized that the Vatican was also going to let Israel share in the
temple mount, he rejected it. (To get Arafat and the Palestinians "on board", on
February 14th, 2000, the PA did sign an agreement with the Vatican which
recognized the Palestinians' claims to East Jerusalem. The outbreak of the "Al
Asqa Intifada" seven months after this agreement was signed
may have been part
of the commitment Arafat gave the Vatican as to what he would do for him in
return for the Vatican acknowledging Palestinians claims to East Jerusalem and
the right to statehood. The violence in the Middle East serves the Catholic
Church's interest especially if Jerusalem is the subject to discuss. By Arafat
getting guarantees from the Vatican that no matter what he does the Europeans
will not abandon him, then it makes sense for him to declare war on Israel in
Sept 2000. The "Barak gave him everything at Camp David" is propaganda. Nothing
was offered that the Knesset would have approved. The intifada could only have
happened if Arafat had gotten assurances from major European powers that he
would survive. The agreement on Feb 2000 would have made more sense if it had
occurred three or four years previous. However its timing when it was makes the
Sept 2000 intifada seem logical from Arafat's perspective.
In a report in the Jerusalem weekly newspaper Kol Ha'ir, it was
revealed that: "for the past six months, The Israeli government has been taking
advice on the future of Jerusalem from a planning commission headed by a close
aide of Teddy Kollek, Raanan Weitz, formerly the settlement director of the
Jewish Agency. At a secret meeting on September 9, 1993, one day before Prime
Minister Rabin signed the recognition agreement with the PLO in Israel, the
forum met secretly and approved in principle a plan for Jerusalem concocted by
Weitz, which he calls, "Metropolitan Jerusalem."
With absolutely no media coverage in Israel, on December 30th an
"historic agreement with the Vatican" is publicly acknowledged. Called: "The
Fundamental Agreement Between The Holy See and The State of Israel", it
"Mindful of the singular character and universal significance of the
Holy Land. Aware of the unique nature of the relationship between the Catholic
Church and the Jewish people, and of the historic process of reconciliation and
growth in mutual understanding and friendship between Catholics and Jews;
"Having decided on 29 July 1992 to establish a 'Bilateral Permanent
Working Commission', in order to study and define together issues of common
interest, and in view of normalizing their relations"
Already within one month of taking power there was a special committee
to further "Israeli-Vatican Relations". From where did this initiative come so
soon as the new government took office?
Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem Shmuel Meir announces at a Jerusalem press
conference that he had received information that properties promised to the
Vatican in Jerusalem would be granted extraterritorial status. (In early 1996
Meir was killed in a very suspicious car crash whereby the driver who drove a UN
truck into Meir's car was not even charged.)
Marek Halter, a French intellectual/philosopher and a close friend of
Peres, tells the Israeli weekly magazine HaShishi that he
personally delivered a letter from Peres to the Pope in Sept, 1993 in which
Peres promised to internationalize Jerusalem, granting the UN political control
of the Old City of Jerusalem, and the Vatican hegemony of the holy sites within.
The UN would give the PLO a capital within its new territory and East Jerusalem
would become a kind of free trade zone of world diplomacy.
On June 15th, the Israeli government signs an agreement with The
Vatican allowing the Catholic Church to participate in negotiations to determine
the future of Jerusalem.
On July 9th, 1994, the Vatican's Foreign Minister, Jean-Louis Tauran,
announces in Amman, Jordan: "Before territorial problems are resolved, we have
to find international guarantees to safeguard the uniqueness of the city and
assurances that never again one party should claim Jerusalem as its possession."
Israel signs a peace treaty with Jordan which, according to reports in
Haaretz, Maariv, and Yediot Achronot, included
secret clauses concerning water and Jerusalem. The agreement had been negotiated
in London eight months before between Rabin, Jesuit King Hussein, and Lord Victor Mishcon. As part of the agreement, Jordan would receive control over the Islamic
Holy sites within a Vatican-controlled Old City of Jerusalem.
A cable from the Israeli Embassy in Rome to The Foreign Ministry was in
Jerusalem is leaked to radio station Arutz Sheva, confirming the
handover of Jerusalem to the Vatican. Two days later the cable made front page
of Haaretz. In the widely distributed minutes of a meeting with President
Clinton, a Jesuit, in 1997, Peres ended the cable with the words, "as I had previously
promised the Holy See."
Member of Knesset Avraham Shapira announced in the Knesset that he had
information that all Vatican property in Jerusalem was to become tax exempt and
that large tracts of real estate on Mount Zion were given to the Pope in
A delegation from the Vatican met in Jerusalem with Palestinian
Authority Religious Affairs Minister, Hassan Tahbob. Father Serge Sebastian,
Secretary General of the Vatican, announced that the Holy See recognizes
Palestinian sovereignty over East Jerusalem.
After JESUIT Shimon Peres had replaced
Yitzhak Rabin as Israel's prime minister, Internal Security Minister Moshe Shachal refused to allow a Palestinian Authority meeting at the Vatican's Notre
Dame Hospice in Jerusalem. According to Shachal, the Palestinians were planning
to "use the Vatican to circumvent the Oslo Accords."
On November 10th, the State of Israel and the Vatican sign the "Legal
Personality Agreement" whereby the State of Israel agrees to "assure full effect
law to the legal personality of the Catholic Church itself."
(What that means in
plain english is anyone's guess.)
Hedging its bets by having bi-lateral agreements with both sides in the
Arab-Israeli conflict, on February 14th, Pope John Paul 11 meets Arafat in Rome
to sign an accord to normalize relations between Roman Catholic churches in
Jerusalem and PA. Palestinian Legislative Council Speaker Ahmed Qurei told The
Jerusalem Post that the agreement is "recognition by the Catholic Church of the
Palestinian claims to the eastern half of Jerusalem." According to Arafat's
spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rudaineh, "Arafat had been lobbying for the idea of
sharing undivided Jerusalem, and for creating a Vatican-style sovereignty in the
Old City." (Somehow we are supposed to believe that Arafat initiated this, and
not the Vatican). The agreement calls for Jerusalem to be "an international city
based on international resolutions and an international guarantee." The pack was
signed despite the Vatican having signed an agreement with Israel six years
earlier on December 30th, 1993 which gave legal jurisdiction under Israeli law
over the Church's own institutions and assets in the Holy Land.
The Pope visits the Holy Land and repeats the Holy See's insistence
that" international oversight- 'a special statute, internationally guaranteed'-
would best safeguard the city's holy sites and all its religions. The city of
Jerusalem is the main obstacle to peace in the region."
On March 27th, the Palestinian Authority says that The Vatican no
longer insists on international status for the Old City of Jerusalem, and that
The Vatican accepts the political division of the Old City between Israel and
the Palestinians. (One has to wonder if this agreement had anything to do with
Arafat’s decision to wage war on Israel six months later?)
In a speech to the United Nations on October 30th, Archbishop Renato
Martino declared: "The "unique character" of Jerusalem as a city sacred to three
great religions makes it essential that religious leaders, not politicians,
control the holy sites." In his meeting on October 26th with Lebanese Ambassador
to the Vatican, Fouad Aoun, Pope John Paul 11 said that the city of Jerusalem
should be given "specially guaranteed international status."
Israel TV journalists secretly film under the Shrine Of Omar, the 7th
century Islamic building which may have been deliberately constructed over the
Holy of Holies, the most sacred prayer room of the ancient Jewish Temple. The
video revealed a new and massive tunnel aimed directly at the most sacred core
of Solomon's and later, Herod's Temples. During the Crusades the early 12th
century chivalric order, The Knights Templar, dug under the ruins for nine years
and found a network of tunnels where the Jewish priests hid their treasures form
the marauding Romans in 70 CE. It was also assumed that the original records of
the Jerusalem Church which prove that the Vatican was not practicing
Christianity as its founders had intended, was buried in this spot. A pope with
exclusive rights of divine interpretation was not part of G-d's plan. If these
scrolls were made public they would jeopardize Rome's legitimacy. Thus it is
imperative to The Vatican that the Jews be removed from the Temple Mount so that
they don't find these important scrolls. The PA is serving as the Vatican's
"building contractors" in this arrangement in the hope that the Vatican will
side with the Palestinians in the conflict with Israel.
Israeli, US and German delegations at the Organization for Security and
Cooperation in Europe in Berlin have to fight a surprise proposal to
internationalize Jerusalem’s Old City by the Italian delegation to the meeting.
The head of the Italian delegation told Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of
the US-based Simon Weisenthal Center, that the main concern of the Italian
government was that “in the future when there are peace discussions, the
Palestinian entity will be given control of the Christian Holy sites.”
Why the secular government of Italy should be worried about this was not
explained in the new item. (The Jerusalem Post, July 8th, 2002)
What's the Vatican Planning?
WHAT CAN BOTH
HOUSES OF ISRAEL DO BIBLICALLY?
For centuries the Vatican has been pushing its
which states that the Catholic Church has replaced BOTH HOUSES OF ISRAEL as "the New Israel".
The Roman Catholic Church wants Israel/both houses to
lose sovereign control over the Old City of Jerusalem so that the promises to
the literal descendents of the house of Jacob/Joseph will be applied to their New
If BOTH HOUSES OF ISRAEL
controls Jerusalem it is evidence that ESAU/EDOM/Rome's claims are not
legitimate. There is no place for the restoration of the WHOLE HOUSE OF
JACOB/JOSEPH in its theology. How can the Vatican claim to be "the New
Jerusalem" and "rightful heir to the Kingdom of God" if BOTH HOUSES control
Jerusalem? How is the Catholic Church going to convince the world that their
version of theology is correct?
The Vatican is going to have everyone believe this
individual who will unite the faiths and appear in Jerusalem which will be
under the control of an authority headed by The Vatican. That deal to have the
Vatican come into Israel and take over these properties and to control and
dominate the Old City of Jerusalem already exists and has been fully documented
and reported in the world's media.
The end goal of The Vatican is to seize control of the Old City of
Jerusalem out of the clutches of the state of Israel. To that end they have a
secret agreement with Israel which obliges Israel to respect the
"extraterritorial" claim to their physical presence in the city. In short, "we
have accepted the Vatican's rights to have little Vatican sovereign embassies
throughout our eternal capital of Jerusalem. That same Vatican has committed
itself, in public and in a written agreement, to ensure that the Palestinians
have sovereignty in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The public record shows a demonic secret deal has already been conducted behind
the backs of the Israeli public and the Protestant Evangelical Communities/Church
worldwide, whereby the Vatican was promised to take over
the Old City. There is ample proof in the public record to prove that a secret
deal was done with the Vatican by two Israeli
Jesuit government representatives,
Beilin and Shimon Peres. As it was concocted covertly it can’t serve
BOTH HOUSES OF ISRAEL - but someone else.
Thus these agreements need to be made void and
It doesn't matter if both houses of Israel think "Catholic
theology" is "strange looking" or extremely "ritualistic." What matters is that
both houses, the WHOLE HOUSE OF JACOB/JOSEPH understand that The Vatican has a secret agenda and it includes
stealing the Old City of Jerusalem away from the seed of DAVID, THE RESTORED TWO HOUSES OF ISRAEL. That is what you need to
know and understand. Unfortunately, this agenda is being carried out in secret
and behind your back and that is why you are ignorant of its true aims. The
purpose of this essay is to warn you of these exact intentions of The Vatican so
that you will be an "informed consumer" when it comes to both houses
of Israel's relations with
the Roman Catholic Church. Even the overt clauses of the Vatican agreement, the
exchange of ambassadors and the opening of the Vatican archives to Israeli
researchers, have not been fulfilled by The Vatican.
From a BIBLICALLY CORRECT TWO HOUSE
"Fundamental Agreement Between The Holy See and The State of
Israel" has been a complete failure and should be immediately rescinded.
