Israeli News Outlets Reporting Secret Deal To Give Temple Mount To Vatican

As far-fetched as it may seem to some, many sober-minded news outlets in Israel in the past week have been reporting the existence of a secret deal now being negotiated ahead of the Pope’s visit to Israel in May. If true, it would be the single biggest advancement of bible prophecy since May 14, 1948. Interesting side note, the Pope’s visit in May will coincide with the 66th anniversary of Israel becoming a nation again. Hmm, now that’s interesting…


From Israel Today: Israel could be entering the final stages of negotiations to turn over control of Mount Zion to the Vatican, if recent reports by Israel National News are to be believed. According to the online news source, a secretive meeting took place this week between the Jerusalem Municipality, Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Tourism and senior Catholic officials.

During the meeting, the Catholic delegation reportedly pressed Israel to follow through on a years-old proposal to give the Church control over the compound that houses the traditional “Hall of the Last Supper.”

The problem is that the same compound also houses the traditional “Tomb of David,” a holy site revered and frequented by religious Jews. Not to mention that Mount Zion is symbolic of Jerusalem as a whole, and surrendering it to the Vatican would be seen by many Israelis as a repudiation of Judaism’s claim to the city.

In response to reports regarding the negotiations, the Jerusalem Municipality released a statement insisting that it would remain “the central sovereign power on Mount Zion.” Others are not so sure, and believe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intends to turn over control of Mount Zion prior to Pope Francis‘ visit to the Holy Land in May. source – Israel Today

What a bunch of rubbish. There is no way that the Israeli government would give the control of the Temple Mount to the Catholic church.

Har Habayit as it’s called in Hebrew is the holiest site for the Jewish people and only fools believe Israel will relinquish control to the Pope.

If you believe it then more fool you.

Jews have run the catholic church for a long time now, and have always headed the Jesuit church. You would be crazy in thinking he would ever hand the Temple Mount over to Christians, that’s for sure.
