Pope Francis, the Che Guevara of the Palestinians is set to visit Judea and Samaria next week, beginning in Bethlehem.

Pope to visit a land of disappearing Christians
Christians in Palestinian areas of Israel are fleeing due to persecution by Palestinian Muslim rulers there. But this damned pope APPROVES of what Muslims do to Christians and Israel.
Pope could turn the shrines of Christendom into museum pieces.
Many Palestinian Christians hope to join others who have already fled the rise of radical Islam.
85% of Bethlehem population was Christian in 1947. Today they number 20%.
This article is full of lies so I re-wrote it.

Vatican Says Pope Will Demand 'Sovereign Palestine'
Vatican's Secretary of State says pope during visit will talk about 'Palestinian right to sovereign, independent homeland.'
Vatican Sec'y of State Pietro Parolin
The Vatican's Secretary of State made a dramatic revelation ahead of Pope Francis's visit to Israel next Sunday and Monday, declaring that the pope will talk about the "Palestinian people's right to have a homeland, sovereign and independent."
Cardinal Pietro Parolin holds a role in the Vatican City State, located in the Italian capital of Rome, equivalent to that of a prime minister. Speaking to Vatican television on Thursday, he said "we know that the pope is going to a particularly suffering land," reports AFP.
"I really hope that the fruit will be to help politicians and all people of good will take courageous decisions on the path to peace," Parolin stated.
When asked what the pope particularly intends to talk about during the visit, Parolin revealed he would talk about "on the one hand, Israel's right to exist in peace and security within internationally recognized boundaries."
On the other side, the pope would talk about "the Palestinian people's right to have a homeland, sovereign and independent, the right to move around freely, the right to live in dignity," according to Parolin.
In fact, the Vatican recognized the "State of Palestine" in 2012 amid the United Nations (UN) vote to confer "Palestine" non-member observer state status, a status until then only held by the Vatican.
Despite the pope's insistence that his visit is "religious not political," his decision to begin his trip from Jordan directly by helicopter with a stop in Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled Bethlehem has been greeted by Arab sources as a move to "recognize Palestine" and help "end the occupation."
Rabbi Sergio Bergman, a member of the Argentinian parliament and close friend of Pope Francis, reported in February that the pope intends to define himself as the "Che Guevera of the Palestinians" and support their "struggle and rights" during his visit.
It has been noted that the pope has been remarkably tight-lipped over the violent persecution of Christians in Bethlehem, instead choosing to condemn alleged Jewish "price tag" vandalism.
"Holy Father" asked to pressure Israel to let priests enter without IDF permission
On Thursday it was announced that 650 Christians from Gaza would be allowed to leave the Islamist-ruled enclave to travel to Judea and Samaria for the pope's visit.
However, 20 priests from the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, which presides over Arab Catholic communities in Judea and Samaria, wrote the pope a letter on Thursday, complaining that they had not been allowed to enter Jerusalem without IDF permission.
"According to the State of Israel, the illegal occupier, we do not have the right to travel to Jerusalem without permission from the Israeli army," the Arab priests said in the letter.
In the letter, the priests claimed the Vatican had given them passes to enter Jerusalem which Israel hasn't stamped with visas. The IDF monitors passage over the 1949 Armistice lines.
"Jerusalem is becoming increasingly closed off to Christians from the West Bank," the letter added, calling for the pope to pressure Israel to submit on controlling passage on its own borders.
The letter concluded "can the Holy Father be in the Holy Land without saying anything about the reality of injustice against an entire people held prisoner on its own land?"
Controversy, both religious and political
Another point of contention about the pope's visit is the status of the David's Tomb Compound in Jerusalem. While numerous government officials - including Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and Israel's Sephardic Chief Rabbi - have denied control of the holy site will be transferred to the Vatican, reports have revealed a plan to indirectly transfer the site.
Rabbi Avraham Goldstein, the Rosh Yeshiva (dean) of the Diaspora Yeshiva located in the Compound, revealed what he said were much more underhand plans than a straightforward hand-over.
"According to the information we have...the state will be allowing the Church to conduct Mass on the upper floor; then according to Jewish law (halakha) Jews will not be able to pray downstairs (either), since on the upper floor there will be idol worship," the rabbi said.
Jewish law forbids benefiting from anything - including a structure or shelter - used for idol-worship. Catholic effigies and other rituals fall under the Jewish legal definition of idol worship, meaning that the establishment of a permanent Catholic place of prayer in the Compound would effectively prevent Jews from conducting their own services in the entire building.
A Catholic official confirmed the Vatican's intentions to put those very plans into effect, telling the Salt Lake Tribune on Tuesday that the Vatican wants "to hold two hours of [Christian] prayer every day in the early morning before visitors start to visit it."
Pope Francis arrives in Jordan
May 24, 2014 AMMAN Pope to start MidEast trip in Jordan
Pope Francis arrives in Jordan on Saturday to start a 3 day Mid East visit.
The Christian population has been declining steadily across the Middle East.
Christians are tortured, raped and literally crucified - on crosses - BY the SAME MUSLIM TERRORISTS this evil pope favors!
Perhaps that has an impact on them fleeing, ya think?
Francis will also visit Israel and the Palestinian areas.
This Devil pope will DEMAND a Sovereign Palestine - on land GOD gave Israel for Jews - FOREVER.
This demon possessed pope loves terrorists and hates Gods chosen people.
* OOPS - I see BA already posted that
Belgium attack result of anti-Israel incitement
Four dead in shooting at Jewish museum in Brussels
The attack was motivated by anti-Semitism, hatred of Jews, Israel.
ADL says attack at Jewish museum in Brussels serves as reminder that anti-Semitism in Europe must be taken seriously. PM Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the shooting and killing of four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels. He said this murder is the result of constant incitement against Jews and their state. Slander and lies against the State of Israel continue to be heard in Europe, as murder in our region are systematically ignored. Our response to this hypocrisy is to constantly state the truth, continue a relentless fight against terrorism.
An Israeli couple from Tel Aviv, Emanuel and Miriam Riva, in their 50s, and two Jewish Museum staff members were shot dead in the shootout Saturday at the museum entrance in Brussels. The fourth victim, a museum worker, died of her wounds during the night. Another 12 people were injured by the indiscriminate fire. The Belgian police are hunting the shooter who escaped on foot. The driver of the Audi which brought him to the scene is in custody.

Evil Pope Francis meets Palestinian leaders in Bethlehem
May 25, 2014
Monday, Pope France had a public Mass in Bethlehem Manger Square after meeting terror chief Mahmoud Abbas. He will be presented with a Cross symbolically filled with stones from the Separation Wall, which Israel built to stop years of Palestinian suicide attacks on Israel.
The Pope will then visit the Church of the Nativity.
He visits Jerusalem Sunday evening
Thousands of police have been called up to secure his visit and are closing off many streets of the capital.
Young Israelis barricaded themselves in the Tomb of David on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. They were protesting reports that the Last Supper room would be presented to the vatican.
Israel issued special visas for 23,000 Palestinians from Judea and Samaria and 600 from the Gaza Strip to enter Israel for the visit of Pope Francis Sunday and Monday.
GOOD LUCK keeping track of those terrorists, Israel.
Evil Pope Francis greeted by Mahmoud Abbas
Pope Francis nods to Palestinian case with unscheduled visit to West Bank barrier
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas poured a litany of lies in the ear of Pope Francis Sunday.
Evil Vatican referred to Abbas as the president of the non-existent State of Palestine.
THAT is INCITEMENT! The vatican is just as evil as the Muslim terrorists.
The pope is scheduled to include Temple Mount, the Kotel (Western Wall of the Jewish temple) and Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Center.
Pope will meet the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, who is notorious for endorsing Jewish genocide.
Pope invites Israeli, Palestinian presidents to pray for peace at Vatican
On second day of Mideast trip, pontiff arrives in West Bank city, urges intensified efforts at peace during meeting with Abbas.
Pope Francis on Sunday invited the Israeli and Palestinian presidents to come to the Vatican to pray for peace a month after US-backed talks aimed at ending the Middle East conflict collapsed.
"In this, the birthplace of the Prince of Peace, I wish to invite you, President Mahmoud Abbas, together with President Shimon Peres, to join me in heartfelt prayer to God for the gift of peace," the Pope said at a Mass in Bethlehem.
Gods judgment is on Christians in the Palestinian areas too,
because they blame Israel for the troubles instead of the Hamas terrorists who control their domain.
Its the Palestinian controllers who want to wipe Israel off the map.
Mark of the Beast
As I listened to Christian radio today, they spoke of a famous pied piper saying you can take
the mark of the beast and still go to heaven. That speaker is sending thousands to hell.
The bible is VERY CLEAR - ALL who take the mark will be in HELLFIRE - FOREVER.
I sensed an urgency to post it here.
THE LIE may well be thinking you can take the mark and still get to heaven!
LOVE the TRUTH! Even if you dont LIKE it!
THY WORD IS TRUTH! Not some guy who contradicts Gods Word.
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works.
He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve THE LIE
and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing.
They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe THE LIE
and all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

What the Pope Said and Didnt Say
May 26, 2014 Pope Francis gave a short speech upon arrival in Israel, as did Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Their speeches revealed the profound differences between Israel and the Vatican.
Netanyahu said, Welcome to our land, the Land of Israel, the Holy Land.
Pope Francis said, Thank you most heartily for your welcome to the State of Israel.
Netanyahu welcomed him to - the Jewish state.
Evil pope greeted all the people of Israel. Francis refused to refer to Israel as a Jewish state.
Netanyahu said to Francis - you are leaving here for Jerusalem, our eternal capital, the heart of our faith.
In Bethlehem poop referred to the State of Palestine - which does not exist, and the idea is from [color=red]HELL[/color].
The Pope LIED when he said the Holy Land is the birthplace of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
Islam did not originate in the Holy Land.

Breaking historic taboo, Lebanese Cardinal Bechara Rai visits central Israel.
Maronite Cardinal Bechara Rai came with Pope Francis, and goes to Jaffa.
The head of Lebanon’s largest Christian denomination visited a parish in central Israel, becoming the first Lebanese religious leader to come to Israel.
Cardinal Bechara Rai, a Maronite Catholic, made the trip despite opposition at home.
His critics have said the pilgrimage implies normalization with Israel at a time when the two countries remain formally at war.

Francis beseeches Grand Mufti to disavow Temple Mount strife
"May no one abuse the name of God through violence," pontiff says to Muslim religious leaders.
Escorted by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a considerable Israeli security detail and coterie of Muslim and Catholic clerics, Pope Francis ascended the Temple Mount Monday morning – perhaps the most symbolic and contested territory in the Muslim and Jewish divide.
Under a clear blue sky, Francis removed his shoes prior to entering al-Aksa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, where Muslims believe Prophet Mohammad ascended to heaven. It is also Judaism’s holiest site, where the First Temple and Second Temple were destroyed.
Shortly after visiting the mosque, the pontiff walked with the mufti, Mohammed Hussein and their respective entourages, to the cleric’s office, some 20 m. away.
Dozens of heavily armed police officers surrounded the group of approximately 40 men, as a highly vetted group of international journalists looked on behind a cordoned off area.
According to Muslim media reports, during the subsequent private 15-minute meeting, Francis beseeched the mufti and his followers to disavow violence and “work together [with Jews] for justice and peace.”
“May we respect and love one another as brothers and sisters,” the pope reportedly said during the discussion. “May we learn to understand the suffering of others. May no one abuse the name of God through violence.”
The only thing the pope accomplished in the mideast was to incite more hatred and violence against Israel.

Why Is the Pope Meeting a Hate Preacher In Israel?
The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, is known as something of a hate preacher. But on Monday, Pope Francis is due to have a high-profile meeting with him on Temple Mount, one of the most volatile and highly contested sites in the Middle East. Mr Hussein has a long track record of incitement. In 2006, not long after he was appointed, he stated that suicide bombing was “legitimate”, because “so long as the resistance is legitimate, everything related to it is legitimate.” MORE

Maronites urge Israel to rebuild their village
The Maronite Church is part of the broader Catholic Church. It has traditionally been far less hostile toward Israel. Many of the Maronites living in Israel volunteer to serve in the IDF.
But there is one stain on relations between Israel and its Maronites - the fate of the village of Kfar Baram.
Kfar Baram was originally a Jewish village dating back at least till the time of Queen Esther.
Between the 7th and 13th centuries AD, Jews abandoned Kfar Baram and it became a Christian village.
In 1948 Israel captured Kfar Baram and resettled its Christian population elsewhere. Due to the close proximity to the Lebanese border, the inhabitants were forbidden to return for fear it would become a point of terrorist infiltration. GOOD POINT - and that is still a good point.
Maronites would like to rebuild Kfar Baram and return.

Israeli and Palestinian presidents to meet at Vatican on June 8
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will meet at the Vatican and pray for peace together at an unprecedented gathering on June 8, the Vatican said on Thursday.
In one of his boldest political gestures since his election in March, 2013, Pope Francis invited the two leaders to come to the Vatican and hold a joint prayer meeting with him during the pontiff's trip to the Holy Land last week.
Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said the two had accepted that the meeting would take place on a Sunday afternoon. That morning the pope will be presiding at a Pentacost Sunday service in St Peter's Square.
The pope, who made the surprise invitation at the end of a Mass in Bethlehem last Saturday, told reporters on the plane returning to Rome that he was not getting directly involved in the stalled Mideast peace process, something he said would be "crazy on my part".
But he said he hoped the prayer meeting, which comes after flailing diplomatic efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, would help create an atmosphere that would help the eventual resumption of talks.
"Courage is needed to do this and I am praying to the Lord very much so that these two leaders, these two governments, have the courage to move forward. This is the only path for peace," Francis said on the plane.
The pope said a rabbi and an Islamic official would be present, without giving details. The meeting is expected to take place in either the guest house where the pope lives in the Vatican or part of the modern complex used for papal general audiences.
When he made the invitation in Bethlehem, the pope said he was offering his "home" for the meeting.
The offer came just a month after U.S.-led peace talks collapsed amid bitter, mutual recrimination.
It was not clear, however, how the unusual prayer encounter could break decades of mutual mistrust.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the key Israeli decision-maker, will not be at the prayer meeting. Furthermore, Peres is due to leave office in July.
"We will work together, Jews, Christians and Muslims to bring an end to the conflicts," Peres said on Monday, speaking alongside the pope in Jerusalem.

David's Tomb Status Quo Breached by Catholic Mass Services
Footage shows David's Tomb Compound has been handed over to fixed Catholic worship, endangering Jewish prayer rights.
Contrary to Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich's promises to Internal Affairs and Environment Committee chair MK Miri Regev (Likud-Beytenu) in mid-May not to change the status quo at King David's Tomb, that status has been breached in a move endangering Jewish prayer at the holy site.
Rabbi Dvir Tal, dean of the King David Yeshiva, which is attached to the Diaspora Yeshiva on the site of the David's Tomb Compound, told Arutz Sheva about the Catholic Mass services which were conducted at the site on Sunday, and which he reports have been held weekly since Pope Francis conducted Mass at the site two weeks ago on Monday.
Video footage, courtesy of Rabbi Tal, exposes the Mass prayers held on the second floor of the David's Tomb Compound, which Christians term the "Room of the Last Supper." The rabbi reports hundreds of Christian visitors, priests, Catholic monks and nuns praying at the site, as evidenced by the film.
In another video clip filmed slightly later, police stop Rabbi Tal from entering the second floor of the Compound while the Mass prayers are in session.
The police are seen refusing Rabbi Tal's requests for an explanation as to why he is being forbidden from entering as he has done for many years on Sundays. In the clip, Christian visitors are seen entering and exiting freely, even as Jews are forbidden access.
Rabbi Tal is heard saying he's being prevented from going up because of the Mass services, which have been conducted since the Pope's visit two weeks ago.
It should be noted that the institution of regular Catholic prayers at the site constitute a severe breach of Jewish prayer rights.
Rabbi Avraham Goldstein, dean of the Diaspora Yeshiva, told Arutz Sheva in May that Jews will be prevented from entering the holy site altogether due to the Mass services, given that Jewish law forbids using a building used for idol-worship - a category which Catholic worship, with its use of effigies, falls under according to Jewish law.
Rabbi Tal reports that during the Mass service on Sunday, incense was burned, the scent of which spread throughout the Compound, engulfing the Tomb of King David on the ground floor as well. Christian visitors brought massive crosses to the prayers, and placed them in the "Room of the Last Supper" for the service.
Additional testimony was given to Arutz Sheva by Rabbi Yaakov Sevilia, an activist for King David's Tomb. Rabbi Sevilia reported that lit candles were placed in the floor of the room in the shape of a cross.
"There's a great pain here; it is hard to describe the depth of our frustration over the reality in which right above the Tomb of King David - David who every Jew is connected to and who the full redemption is dependent upon - they let idol-worship happen, which is more severe than murder and sexual indecency," said Rabbi Tal, noting Jewish law's position on the three cardinal sins.
"A gesture to the pope"
Rabbi Tal emphasized that the priests and monks at the prayers were associated with the Catholic church, as opposed to any other stream or order of Christianity. He argues that this point shows the Mass prayers indicate a gesture to the pope after his visit.
As seen in the second video above, Rabbi Tal noted that police blocked Jewish access to the Compound. Police did not respond to his requests to know why, giving him the impression that they were given orders not to speak with anyone about the new restrictions.
When he asked the officers if the Mass prayers currently being conducted were the same as those held once or twice a year, he was given to understand from their response that that was not the case.
Rabbi Tal reports that in all his years at the Compound, he has never seen Mass services held day after day as he has since the pope's visit.
Responding in prayer
Another Christian prayer service is anticipated at the site on Monday, says Rabbi Tal, noting his King David Yeshiva is preparing a prayer protest in response.
The prayer will be held at 3 p.m. on Monday; all are invited to participate. "This is the minimal thing that can be done, to pray to G-d that He will rule over us," noted the rabbi.
When asked whether the establishment of fixed Catholic prayer at the site would create a Jewish legal problem in his view, Rabbi Tal said there are opinions that Jews are forbidden to enter places that are fixed as places of idol-worship prayer, even if that was done at a later stage.
For his part, Rabbi Tal gives the opinion that the requirement to settle and conquer the land of Israel is stronger than the law forbidding entry to the site in such a case, and that it was preferable to enter than to give full control to the Church.
At the same time, Rabbi Tal emphasized that both views stem from the same concern and pain over the situation at the site, and therefore Jews should not squabble over a source of contention in Jewish law, but rather unify their opinions to defend the holy site.
"The government is to blame"
Jerusalem Councilman Aryeh King added his condemnation of the Mass prayer services on Sunday night.
Writing on Facebook, King declared: "government of Israel and members of the coalition from all the coalition parties, I accuse you of collaboration and aid in harming the holy ones of Israel, the Tomb of King David!"
King called for masses of Jews to come visit the site on Monday in a sign of protest, saying "let us return the sanctity, and by our presence and prayer on the site prevent the implementation of the current Israeli government's plan to harm the holiness of King David's Tomb."
During the pope's visit, King refused to welcome him unless he would "bring in his suitcase the treasures of the Jewish people that were stolen by his predecessors," referencing the artifacts stolen from the Second Temple by the Romans which are widely thought to be hidden in the Vatican.
It is worth noting that 41 Jews were arrested between the Saturday night and Sunday morning ahead of the pope's visit, while protesting the reported plans to let Catholics hold fixed prayers which now apparently have come to fruition.
LIES at the vatican
June 16, 2014 Palestinian and Israeli leaders at the Vatican
Pope Francis claimed he did not want to get into the political questions of Israel, but its unavoidable. By his words he cursed Israel.
He indicated Israel is - occupying - Palestinian land - a LIE and unscriptural.
He indicated that Palestinians are suffering because they dont have their own state and because of Israeli oppression. Another LIE.
He called Abbas a man of peace - another LIE.
Duing the Vatican prayer (cough) Abbas referenced Jerusalem as our Holy City and the Holy Land of Palestine. 2 LIES.
Very interesting that Peres was replaced a month after his phony vatican visit.
