OBAMA-POPE-COMP-logo

The U.N. document approved Sunday in New York, “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” includes in its preamble the call for a “new universal agenda” for all of humanity.

But one big question looms.

How does such an ambitious plan get implemented?

The plan bypasses Congress and the legislatures of the world’s other 193 nations. Yet, the heads of state agreed to work toward implementation, largely through secret trade deals and backroom bureaucratic rule-making, experts told WND.

Very few members of Congress have likely even read the U.N. document that Obama has agreed to implement, says one expert in globalism.

“The only thing they are lacking right now is a sufficient crisis big enough to win enthusiastic public support in America and other nations in the world for full-on global governance,” says Paul McGuire, a Fox News and History Channel contributor and co-author of the new release, “Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End Time Mystery.”

The U.N. document focuses on ending poverty and gender inequality, combating climate change and opening up borders to migrants and refugees.“But, remember, the elite who are behind this are experts at manufactured crisis and their motto is ordo ab chao, which means ‘order out of chaos.’ This was a term coined by the Masonic leader Albert Pike,” McGuire told WND. “The new global order will be birthed by either a global financial crisis, the prospect of World War III involving Islam, Russia, Ukraine, NATO, Iran, Syria and Israel and a manufactured climate-change crisis.”

To address these crises, world leaders at the U.N. put their stamp of approval on a 15-year plan, the so-called 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — a proposal some observers believe could be the first step toward the global superstate and cashless society predicted by biblical prophets.

“The real agenda of the globalist elite through all these ‘sustainable development’ and ‘social justice’ programs are to create a new global state,” says McGuire.

His book, co-authored with journalist Troy Anderson, takes an investigative approach to examining end-times prophecies and the current state of the world in the epic battle between good and evil.

“We read in the book of Revelation that in the last days Babylon will return as a ‘born-again’ world government, religion and economic system. What is happening now with the United Nations is Babylon rising again before our very eyes.”

Cliff Kincaid, director of the Accuracy in Media Center for Investigative Journalism, also has his eye on Pope Francis and the Vatican.

While the media paid great attention to the pope kissing babies and hugging adoring Americans, it gave little if any coverage to the real story of his visit, which was to endorse the U.N.’s march toward a new international order under the guise of “sustainable development,” Kincaid says in a recent article for AIM.

This agenda promises to radically affect the individual lives of ordinary Americans, yet they are being kept in the dark about its details.

The stated purpose of the U.N. “high panel’s” report is to “transform economies through sustainable development.”

The only American on this panel was John Podesta, former top climate-change adviser for Obama and now chairman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Podesta is also a member in the elitist Trilateral Commission, founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski, and founder of the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress.

“In addition to destroying the American system, the recommendations of this so-called high-level body, especially on the matter of ‘climate action,’ could also have a dramatic impact on the lives of people around the world, including the poor, who need access to energy and real economic development to escape poverty,” Kincaid writes.

According to Patrick Wood, author of “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation,” the whole “sustainable development” meme is a ploy to replace capitalism and free enterprise with a global socialist system based on resource allocation and energy usage rather than on supply and demand and free-market activity.Wood said the proposed “transformation” of the world’s current economic system “for a completely untried and untested one” is “dangerously absurd” and could make life worse for the people that the U.N. and Roman Catholic Church are supposed to help.

“Any honest economist would instantly balk at such Pollyannaish promises of utopia, and the American public should do so as well,” Wood told Kincaid. “The fact is that these wild promises of prosperity for all are merely the candy coating to deceive the world into going along with its own economic destruction.”

And the pope is fully on board with the U.N. plan to escort the world into global governance. Kincaid observes:

“In a pitch for global socialism, masked in flowery language, Francis, who insisted on his way to the U.S. that he was not a liberal, said, ‘I would like all men and women of good will in this great nation to support the efforts of the international community to protect the vulnerable in our world and to stimulate integral and inclusive models of development, so that our brothers and sisters everywhere may know the blessings of peace and prosperity which God wills for all his children.’”

He adds that while the pope says nice things about the poor, “the practical result of ditching capitalism for socialism will be more poverty, suffering, and death.”

Journalist and retired English professor Jerry B. Kane, writing about the 2030 Agenda in an article for Canada Free Press, notes that this new U.N. plan for humanity is more sweeping than the former plan, known as Agenda 21, which dealt mostly with the environment.

The preamble to the 2030 Agenda, which many see as the replacement for Agenda 21, specifically calls for an overhaul of the world’s “three dimensions of sustainable development,” which it lists as “the economic, social and environmental.”

It then gives 17 goals and 167 targets that must be met by all nations.

“Nearly every nation in the world is expected to sign on to the 2030 Agenda,” Kane writes. “But what happens to the nations that won’t sign on or go along with the plan? Or better yet, what happens to freedom of conscience, individual liberty, and free enterprise in those nations that do go along?”

‘One crisis away’

The goal is to get every nation to willingly sign onto the plan and thereby give up elements of their national sovereignty, which could be done more easily in a time of crisis, McGuire said.

“The U.N. vote is about to put America and the world on the fast track to a one-world government,” he told WND. “We are literally just one crisis away from that happening. It could happen overnight, and I don’t think most people realize this.”

In fact, the Telegraph, a major British newspaper, reported this week that the IMF was warning of just such an event, with a “mass default” in emerging markets where global corporations are exposed to weak economic conditions.

The trigger could be higher U.S. interest rates.

These corporations have “gorged themselves on cheap debt,” the IMF warned. But the rug will eventually be pulled out by the Federal Reserve, causing a cascading collapse.

Speaking before the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 28, Obama argued that it is necessary for the U.S. to retreat as a world superpower so that global governance can rise up in its place.

Obama rejected arguments that “strong states must impose their will” or that “might makes right” and “order must be imposed by force.”

But what are the ideals in the U.N. charter that Obama proposes take the place of a superpower America?

What will global government look like?

For a clue on what global government will look like, McGuire says the real agenda was exposed by Lord Monckton, the former science adviser to Margaret Thatcher and now an exclusive columnist for WND.

Monckton warned on Oct. 14, 2009, that the true agenda of the U.N. climate treaty and Agenda 21 is to create an all-powerful world government and to transfer wealth from Western nations to Third World nations through the force of new U.N.-sponsored international laws.

One of the ways to do this redistribution is by allowing Third World refugees to migrate freely into the industrialized nations of the West.

“Monckton summed it all up when he said; the goal of the U.N. is to impose communist world government on the world,” McGuire said.

The world is now at a “tipping point” for this new system to be installed, he said.

“We see the world being deliberately brought to the brink of a financial crisis that is created through debt to the central banks in Europe and the Federal Reserve system in the United States,” McGuire said. “The economies of the world have been strategically impacted by trillions of dollars in debt, the slowing of economic growth due to U.N. sustainable development policies and the impossible demands of attempting to pay off these debts through higher taxes.”

These governments are obligated to pay pensions, retirement programs and other benefits to their people while their economies have been stagnating under the weight of socialist economic policies.

The sovereign debt crisis that started in Greece and Cypress will spread like a contagion through Europe and the U.S. And the growing wealth disparity is creating conditions where the people of the world, including the former American middle class, will cry out for socialist-style economic policies.

As Christine Lagarde, head of the IMF said, “a reboot of the global financial system is needed.” This may include a new world currency and a cashless society.

Islam’s role in creating new world order

To create a crisis that enables their new global order to be implemented, McGuire believes the elites have been stoking and manipulating the rise of worldwide Islam.

The Wahhabi sect, which is the most militant branch of Sunni Islam, is heavily financed by Saudi Arabia through its vast oil reserves, discovered near the Persian Gulf in 1939. The al-Saud dynasty later made a deal with the Rockefeller oil companies and in order for the dynasty to keep its power it had to agree to finance Wahhabism, McGuire said.

Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution, created the rebirth of a militant Shia movement.

The growth of both sects of militant Islam are connected to U.S., European, Russian and American oil interests, McGuire said.

“Since the late 1970s when Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, was helping train Osama bin Laden, the hands of the globalists have been all over the growth of militant Islam,” he said. “It appears Islam is being used as a destabilizing force in both Europe and the United States designed to breakdown a cohesive Judeo-Christian culture.”

Islam and liberal Christianity ‘moving closer’

McGuire said he’s received confidential reports from inside Germany regarding the flood of immigrants into Europe. Many inside Germany believe this was pre-planned with the pope’s appeal last year for Islam to move closer to Christianity.

More than 8,000 Muslims per day are entering Europe from various routes. They are creating violence and chaos, and the U.N. has said there is no end in sight with regard to the arrival of new migrants.

“Civil unrest is ready to explode, and the people are crying out for some kind of police state to manage the chaos, which appears to be the plan all along,” McGuire told WND.

McGuire believes the U.N. plan using climate change as a global crisis goes all the way back to 1992 and the U.N.’s Earth Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A crisis as big as the world’s “climate” had to be manufactured and hyped by the world’s media before the U.N. could put forth an aggressive agenda calling for some kind of global government.

Using secret trade deals

“Beginning at the U.N.’s Earth Summit, the U.N. has used climate change, sustainable development and Agenda 21 as a Trojan horse to grab power. During the Sept. 25-27 summit, the U.N. presented its new 15-year plan to transform the world. What this transformation is really all about is forcing sovereign nations, including the United States, to surrender its rights under U.N. law and a U.N. global government,” McGuire said.

And that’s where the trade deals Congress allowed the Obama administration to secretly negotiate come into play.

“All the secret trade treaties that our government and other governments are signing are really all about circumventing our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and placing the United States and its citizens under the rule of U.N. law,” McGuire said.

“This is extremely dangerous because U.N. law, despite using terms like ‘human rights,’ offers no secure legal protection of the freedoms and rights we have guaranteed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights,” he said. “The Declaration of Independence states that we have been given, ‘certain inalienable rights by our Creator.’ This means that God, and not any human government, has given our rights and freedoms to us and, therefore, no human government has the right to take them away.”

The U.N. Convention on Human Rights claims to offer protections for people’s rights.

The U.S. Bill of Rights gives “freedom of religion,” “freedom of speech,” “freedom of the press,” etc. The U.N. gives similar rights and freedoms that can be taken away at any time and for any reason by human government.

“This is exactly the same strategy that the planners of the European Union like Jean Monnet used in destroying the rights and national sovereignty of individual European nations,” McGuire said. “Monnet and others created simple ‘trade treaties’ regarding coal and steel and would bury in these treaties subtle legal language that began the process of ending the rights of the independent European nations.”

Through a succession of such trade treaties, “the Europeans woke up one day and discovered they had lost their basic rights and freedoms and they were now legally forced to surrender their national sovereignty and accept the dictates of a European Union, but it was all done by stealth,” he continued. “This is exactly what is happening in the U.S. today with various trade treaties and the U.N. This is one of the reasons why John Boehner is going to resign because he is secretly signing away our constitutional rights along with other members of both political parties. And when the American people finally wake up, it will too late.”

When Obama said at the United Nations, “We cannot look backward,” and emphasized that global integration is an agenda that transcends the narrowly defined interests of nation states, he was revealing his belief that a sovereign nation like America must be brought down so a new global order can rise.

“President Obama is not acting alone when he said at the U.N., ‘Unless we work with other nations under the mantle of international law, we will not succeed,’” McGuire said. “What Obama and prominent leaders in both the Republican and Democratic Parties are currently in the process of doing is moving America away from the authority of U.S. constitutional law and placing us under the authority of international law through a series of secret trade treaties that no one can read.”

The late CBS anchorman, Walter Cronkite, known as “the most trusted man in America,” said in 1999, that the U.S. must give the United Nations the full power of a world government and both a police and military to enforce its international laws. Cronkite also said that America must give up its sovereignty for this U.N. world government to take over.

Imminent Warnings of Near Future Cataclysms with Pastor Levy

Pastor Levy joins http://www.tribulation-now.org/ to update on some powerful dreams and warnings of imminent calamities about to occur in the United States of Babylon the Great.

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky!”

Roughly three months, or 500 days from when The French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and John Kerry made a vague announcement, it will be September 23, 2015. The occult beliefs of the illuminati stress the importance of the dates following the Autumn Equinox. The occultists believe that a veil separating the Earthly realm from the demonic realm reaches its most allowable for the transfer of demons until midnight on Halloween. The events leading up to, on and nearly following the date of September 23, 2015 are numerous and many of them are as yet unconfirmed claims. Note to mainstream media, uncomfirmed claims here, we are simply taking a look at what is being said.

An asteroid is said to be approaching Earth that will hit the coast of Venezuala and Brazil and create an extinction level event. The update and ramping up of the Cern large Hadron Collider and the possible Universe destroying opening of other dimensions within our own dimension or access to a gate that has been closed. The culmination of Jade Helm, a large scale psyop operation targeting pockets of the United States with the largest density populations of patriot data to be utilized by military intelligence and Canada’s Maple Resolve Operations a large scale readiness exercise movement of military vehicles. Meanwhile, the closing of large retail chains beginning in August and resolving around early September due to the success of online retail and dwindling median income. With claims of eyewitnesses in Canada reporting Target stores being converted into underground military bases. The Day of Atonement lands squarely on September 23rd and heralds in the 70th Jubilee year which the Angel Gabriel delivered to the prophet Daniel signaling the second coming of Christ in 2016. And the ominous historical meeting scheduled between President Obama and the openly blatant cheerleader of The New World Order Pope Francis.

The level of predictive programming leading up to this foreboding date with destiny has been ongoing. Something is definitely rotten in Denmark. Those with open eyes keep a watch as the elite gradually disappear to their cities underground, economic cycles come to pass, and military movements increase on domestic soil. Again we are simply evaluating the signs here mainstream media, we wouldn’t want you to be envious of our ability to analyze what you are paid to cover up.

If it isn’t one thing it is another, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any.

New York City is now basically completely locked down, with snipers on almost every rook, FBI, DHS, and FEMA

everywhere, as well as every other Law Enforcement Agency. There are an estimated 3 million people who are expected to show up to NYC for the 4th of July weekend. and Peter King seems to have just said there were Nukes in town.

Watch the video for yourself. Peter King, one of the NYC slimeball politicians, makes a slip and tries to fix it. However, if you watch the original clip, (at 4:00 mark) it looks like he has an arrogant smirk as if he knows he is deceiving the viewer and knows it is working.

NYC has been INUNDATED with a security grid and militarized police presence that is beyond the scope of anything we have seen

The perfect cover to bring in maybe a [dirty] bomb and have it go off, blaming ISIS or Patriot group?

IPGII_POSTER_1920x1080

 

A few days ago I posted The Mysteries of CERN and The Unknown at my LogosApologia.org website featuring links to my recent appearance on the Jim Bakker show with my On the Path of the Immortals co-author Tom Horn. Tom wrote a very interesting chapter “Secrets of the CERN Stargate” that becomes more prescient each day. Within science, the portal concept is perfectly respectable, explaining why the research director at CERN, physicist Sergio Bertolucci, said that  the LHC could open a door and,“Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it.” That early statement form the research director set the tone for the ongoing discussion of interdimensional  and braneworld portals.

Scientists theorize that the particle collisions withing the LHC might tear a small hole into four dimensional space-time, creating a tiny worm hole. In order to manufacture a large traversable wormhole, one would start at the particle level and stretch it up to navigable size. Even so, a new study proposes that all spiral galaxies (like our Milky Way) already feature wormholes and may even feature a “galactic transport system“.

In Bible prophecy, such a portal is opened to the bottomless pit releasing genetic monstrosities led by an immortal supernatural being.

“They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.” (Revelation 9:11)

Many passages speak of  otherworldly “gates” (Gen 28:17; Mat 16:18 ) and God often speaks “out of the whirlwind,” (Job 38:1) making models of a traversable wormhole (which would seem like a whirlwind or vortex) an intriguing explanation.

Earlier today, Sharon Gilbert asked me to type IPETGOATII into google maps in order to observe the result. The result was CERN. I also tried it with Google Earth and my top two results were CERN and the Dome of the Rock! So why are these addresses associated with the film?

Google Earth result"I Pet Goat"

Why is google directing this term to CERN? Are we implying by our search associations that CERN beckons the apocalypse? Is Google having some fun? If you are not yet familiar please watch the short film I Pet Goat II and check out the website at http://www.heliofant.com/.

The film gets its title from elementary school reader My Pet Goat the children were reading from when George Busch Jr. was in the classroom on 9/11. The film proposes that the events of 9/11 were orchestrated as a mass exposure occult ritual. Even the classroom itself is part of the spell! I found this to be especially creepy, check out the vocabulary the teacher pulls out while Bush looks on.

Kite, Plane, Must, Hit, Steel

Seriously, it seems like more than coincidence! Was this all orchestrated (including the kid’s lesson) as an elaborate public yet occult ritual?

The film presents an apocalyptic scenario in which all world religions merge under a central universal messiah that looks like Jesus (yet features the all seeing eye on his forehead). The film is dark as Drako the sorcerer controls the world through finance, an idea also concordant with prophecy, “so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.(Re 13:17) However, the New Age looking Jesus traveling down the river Styx of the Egyptian underworld at the close of the film leaves me disappointed and pondering the producer’s worldview…

The film seems to be missing the blessed hope of the return of Christ. Because of that, I wonder if the film makers are more or less secular members of the truth movement? Perhaps viewing all religion as tool of the elite and not accounting for the triune God and His church leads them to uncertainty. Even so, it all fits within biblical prophecy — as many are now recognizing. The argument from prophecy is winning many truthers to Christianity.

If the occult and supernatural are real, then consider that Bible prophecy speaks to these power elites who are conducting the rituals:

“Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”(Psalm 2:1–3)

“and the light of a lamp will shine in you no more, and the voice of bridegroom and bride will be heard in you no more, for your merchants were the great ones of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery.”(Revelation 18:23)

John the Revelator was the original globalist conspiracy author… God has revealed himself. I found this analysis helpful:

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky!”

roling_stone_5221753

May 14, 2015
By Brad Macdonald
Not once over the last 2,000 years has the Vatican endorsed Muslim control of the Holy Land. Why now?

First Cuba, now the Palestinians. Pope Francis is a man on a mission. But what is his mission exactly? The rhetoric and body language, the gracious gestures, the incessant smiles and compliments give the impression of a selfless leader determined to broker peace, cooperation and tranquillity. In Cuba, Israel, and all over this chaotic, disunited planet.

But consider the decisions and actions. In both Cuba and Israel, the Vatican is creating tension, disunity and instability that are likely to lead to conflict and war.

Yesterday the Vatican revealed that it had formally recognized the “state of Palestine” in a newly finalized treaty with the Palestinians. (Pope Francis and the Vatican had previously supported the “state of Palestine,” but never formally like this). The treaty defines the Catholic Church’s activities in areas controlled by the Palestinians, and will be signed by both sides this Saturday when Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas visits the Vatican.

Critics of Israel and patrons of Palestinian statehood are elated. The movement to recognize a Palestinian state has gained momentum in recent years, particularly within the United Nations; an endorsement from the pope and the Vatican is huge. Time will tell, but gaining the support of the most respected and admired leader on Earth could be just what is needed to get the project of Palestinian statehood over the finish line.

For the Jewish state and its declining number of supporters, the Vatican’s decision was an enormous blow. “This move does not promote the peace process and distances the Palestinian leadership from returning to direct and bilateral negotiations,” Israel’s foreign minister said in a text message to the Associated Press.

Indeed. In return for its vital support of Palestinian statehood, the Vatican required absolutely nothing from the Palestinians. There was no requirement of the Palestinian Authority (PA) to sincerely engage in peace talks with Israel, no demand that it recognize Israel’s right to exist, and no demand that it sever its connection with Hamas and publicly renounce Hamas’s ambitions. Nothing.

“The one thing we can be sure it won’t do is to improve the chances for peace,”explained Jonathon Tobin, senior online editor for Commentary magazine. “By granting the Palestinians official recognition without first requiring them to make peace with Israel, Pope Francis and the church have only made it less likely that this will ever happen” (emphasis added throughout). Others were more dramatic. Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, released a statement saying that the Vatican’s action “serves to undermine the only real solution to the decades-old conflict.”

Mort Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, warned that the Vatican’s endorsement of Palestinian statehood is a sign of the resurgence of “THE HISTORICAL CATHOLIC ENMITY TOWARDS JEWS.”

That remark by Klein is really worth thinking about. Pope Francis and the Vatican are selling this decision as a routine gesture of goodwill toward the Palestinians, and a decision that could even jump-start the peace process. Don’t buy it. The Vatican’s endorsement of the Palestinian cause will add major momentum to the international movement toward Palestinian statehood. This will pile more pressure on Israel to make more concessions, even to the detriment of its existence. And when and if Israel refuses to concede, it is certain to be held responsible for the inevitable tension and conflict.

The Israeli-Palestinian peace process is destined to end in conflict—and the Vatican’s decision brings that day nearer.

The timing is interesting too. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was recently reelected and just last week finalized a coalition government that could be more hardline than the previous. Going forward, Israel’s government—justifiably, reasonably and wisely—will continue to be extremely cautious about any sort of peace deal with the Palestinians. Israel’s prime minister is trying to slow the momentum toward Palestinian statehood, convince nations that the PA cannot be trusted, and persuade the international community to demand more from the Palestinians in return for statehood. The Vatican’s announcement undermines all this and makes Prime Minister Netanyahu’s job much more difficult. It was a veiled message to Israel’s conservative government: Don’t get too excited, and don’t get too comfortable.

Imagine Netanyahu sitting down to discuss the peace process with another world leader. Pope Francis supports Palestinian statehood without any demands on the Palestinians, why shouldn’t I? Mr. Netanyahu could hear that refrain from pretty much every world leader he meets. And as long as he refuses to accept a deal in which the other side is not required to alter its genocidal ambitions, Israel’s prime minister will be maligned and ostracized.

It’s also worth recalling the Balkan wars, scenes of which dominated our television screens during the early 1990s. The Vatican, together with Germany, played a key role in instigating Yugoslavia’s dissolution and the long and brutal conflicts that erupted. How? By being one of the first to formally recognize—despite strong opposition from the United States, the European Union and the UN—the breakaway regions of Croatia and Slovenia as independent and sovereign states. Most of the international community dutifully followed along. Within months, the Balkan Peninsula was on fire (for more information on this critical history, read our free booklet Germany’s Conquest of the Balkans).

Will we see similar tension and conflict erupt in Israel as a result of the Vatican’s support of the Palestinians? It seems inevitable.

Consider one last thought. Isn’t it odd that Pope Francis and the Vatican seem to be supporting Muslim control of parts of Jerusalem?

I can’t think of a single moment over the past 2,000 years when the Vatican sincerely endorsed Muslim control of Jerusalem. I can, however, recall multiple occasions when the Vatican riled up Catholic warriors and dispatched them to the Holy Land to wrest control from the Muslims. Why would Pope Francis reject two millennia of Catholic history—even rejecting Catholic doctrine and tradition—and support Muslim sovereignty in the Holy Land? That’s just really odd.

Actually, Pope Francis and the Vatican do not support the presence of Muslims in Jerusalem any more than they do the presence of Jews.

There are two simple reasons the Vatican, for now, is making it appear that it supports a Palestinian state and greater Muslim influence over Jerusalem.

First, it undermines Israel’s control over the Holy Land. When it comes to diminishing Israel’s grip on Jerusalem and its holy sites, the Vatican is quite happy for the Palestinians to do the gritty work. An honest assessment of Palestinian leadership and governance, at least up till now, reveals endemic corruption, mismanagement, infighting and internal strife. Can the Palestinians successfully create a stable, prosperous, safe Palestinian state in Israel? Slim chance.

Second, the Vatican’s endorsement of Palestinian statehood provides ideal cover for its own ambition to wrest control of Jerusalem from the Jews and Muslims.

Reading about the treaty that will be signed this Saturday, one can’t help but wonder: Has the Vatican come to some kind of quid pro quo with the Palestinians? Jerusalem is as important and meaningful to the Catholic Church as Rome itself, probably more so. There are many sites that the Catholic Church considers highly valuable. What has the PA agreed to cede to the Vatican in return for its endorsement of Palestinian statehood? This is conjecture. But this is the way politics, international relations and human nature work. People, nations, even most religions, will feign friendship and peace in pursuit of their goals.

Four years ago, Italian journalist Giulio Meotti, writing for Arutz Sheva, explained how Catholic authorities had “increased their political initiatives for Catholic control over some sites in Jerusalem.” He recalled, for example, how the head of the Vatican’s Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, had said that “peace negotiations in the Middle East must tackle the issue of the status of the holy sites of Jerusalem.” According to Tauran, the time had arrived for some of Jerusalem’s holy places, including the City of David, to be put under Vatican charge. After all, “it’s practically just the Holy See who is concerned about [Jerusalem],” Tauran stated.

Stories like this are pretty unusual. We don’t often read about the Vatican’s love for Jerusalem and its quest for more control. But it’s there, and it’s thriving. The Vatican is not a non-threatening, neutral third party in this conflict—though so much of the news media believes it is. History shows that Jerusalem is as important to the Vatican as it is to Jews and Muslims. For Catholics, Jerusalem is the birthplace of Christianity and the setting of many important biblical events. The Holy City, as Catholic dogma states, is its universal headquarters.

Does anyone really think the Vatican genuinely wants to cede control of these sites to Muslims?

We need to look past the handshakes and platitudes, and really think about what is going on here. This decision is part of a Trojan horse strategy by which the Vatican seeks to gain the trust of the Palestinians and international community before more actively staking its claim to Jerusalem and its holy sites. Whatever happens, the last thing we can expect is for the Vatican to stand by and cheer as Muslims assume control of Christianity’s holy sites. That is never going to happen.

In fact, putting Jerusalem under “international” control has been the Vatican’s strategy for decades. In 1949, the British plenipotentiary minister (essentially, the ambassador) to the Vatican, John Victor Perowne, wrote that “the Vatican would have preferred, from the point of view of the fate of the holy places and of Catholic interests in Palestine generally, that neither Jews nor Arabs, but a third power, should have control in the Holy Land. Such a solution it well knew, however, was unattainable, and in the actual circumstances it preferred the Arabs to the Jews.”

So here is what is likely to happen, at least in some form. This decision by the Vatican will embolden the Palestinians in their quest for Jerusalem, further ostracize the Jewish state, and increase tensions between Israel and the Palestinians, perhaps to the point of conflict (more terrorist attacks, etc.). As the situation deteriorates, Israel will continue to look for foreign assistance and support. Relations with its traditional allies, America and Britain, are rapidly deteriorating, and these countries have hardly any appetite for supporting Israel, at least in any meaningful way. Russia and China are more on the side of the Muslims than the Jews. Israel will find itself left with one option: crying out to Germany and Europe.

It’s true that Europeans and their leaders aren’t especially fond of Jews and the Jewish state. Then again, Germany, at least its chancellor, is arguably the closest friend and ally Israel has right now. Expect Israel to cry out to Germany for assistance. THIS IS PRECISELY THE RESPONSE THE VATICAN IS SEEKING!

The European Union and the Vatican both have the same official goal for Jerusalem. They want it to be an international city—controlled neither by Jews nor Arabs, but rather by some third party.

Why does the Vatican want this? In his book Christians and Jews: Faith to Faith, Rabbi James Rudin wrote that the Eastern Orthodox churches that own the majority of Jerusalem’s sacred Christian sites oppose internationalizing the city because it “would give greater control of Jerusalem’s Christian sites and institutions to the Roman Catholic Church, which has significant influence in Europe and the Western Hemisphere.”

It doesn’t take much imagination to see the Vatican being given the chief seat in how an “international” Jerusalem is governed! (After all, Pope Francis just brokered peace between America and Cuba.)

Israel is dead against this right now. But as it becomes more isolated and its situation becomes desperate, its resolve will start to crumble.

Of course, this is just one possible scenario. However it happens, the Vatican’s ambitions in Jerusalem are well documented. It desperately seeks greater control over Jerusalem, and every step it takes in its diplomacy with Israel and the Palestinian Arabs is dedicated to this end.
