1. If they considered Israeli interests
Arevs   (06.26.15)
Then Palestine would never be recognized and Israel would continue its murder spree with impunity. Just listen to yourself
2. Pope is a nut
El gato ,   USA   (06.26.15)
This pope is a liberal nut who is not a Bible-believing Christian. He will bring down his denomination!
3. "Church's rights"?
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (06.26.15)
Who says that the Catholic church has any rights in Israel? If the Vatican wants to negotiate privileges,it has to negotiate with the sovereign power and that is the State of Israel. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
4. It all makes sense .
Moishe ,   Golutsk   (06.26.15)
Fake religion sings a treaty with a fake country that does not even exist.
5. Vaticans replacement theology
Christian ,   Finland   (06.26.15)
What an antichristian decision again! It is this so called replacement theology that these kind of catolics are representing. Traditional protestant and other christians still believe that also the promises that was given to Abraham are still valid, and will always be; the promised land. But Vatican, the Pope does not represent traditional christianity and it shows in many other ways too, that they are not following the Bibble. For example this selibacy rule for priests, it is not based on Bibble and so it only creates problems, like those pedofil scandals have shown.
6. Another "Concordat" pope
rays ,   NH, USA   (06.26.15)
History records the shameful 1933 Vatican "concordat" with Nazi Germany that was such a huge help to Hitler's strengthening hold in Germany. Now the current pope makes alliance with the Palestinians in their war on Israel. He doesn't seem too concerned with the ongoing slaughter of Christians in Africa ,Syria and Iraq OR the weakening of the situation of Christians in Gaza and the West Bank. No ,he only attacks Israel ,the only State in the region where Christians are safe and prospering.
7. So the Anti-Christ has paired with the pals..
Beary White ,   Norway   (06.26.15)
.. both belonging to the same satan..
8. Does Israel Have a negotiations Problem
Bill ,   Skokie U.S.A.   (06.26.15)
"Israel has yet to conclude an accord on the Church's rights in the Jewish state which has been under discussion since 1999." Hmm! Is the Vatican negotiating in bad faith? Are Israels security concerns not being addressed? Why cannot Israel conclude an agreement? It seems to be consistent theme wherever Israel has to sit down and negotiate. I don't know why, does anybody?
9. Reformation needed
Christian ,   Finland   (06.26.15)
Vatican with its mafia and other dark, even evil connections needs instant purification and most importantly; religious reformation.
10. Next he'll recognize Zanadu or Neverland....
David ,   Hartford USA   (06.26.15)
When ISIS 'visitors' knock on his Vatican door and are about to lop off his head, I wonder if then maybe he'll reconsider his position? The Pope is a dope, pure and simple. And the College of Cardinals elected him? Doesn't say much about their thinking process...
11. No Jerusalem for you, pope
Randy ,   Usa   (06.26.15)
Until 1993 Vatican did not recognize Israel! Enough said!
12. Vatican recognizes Palestine State
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (06.26.15)
A very proper and moral move, also prophetic, given that Palestine will encompass the entire former British Mandate and the state of "Israel" and its Zionist denizens, within probably five years, will be in the trash bin of hostory.
13. will not save christians in arab lands infact endangers more
ralph   (06.26.15)
14. Catholic Church
C   (06.26.15)
the catholic church has always despised and persecuted the jewish people. pope francis, a marxist who follows liberation theology, bows down to muslims who persecute christians while disdaining the jewish state of israel. israel should reciprocate and nullify tax exampt status for church property. israel does not need diplomatic relations with this totalitarian blood soaked church.
15. Ironic,same recognized Muslims want to destroy Vatican State
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (06.26.15)
16. But Who Is The Pope Recognizing?
emanon ,   USA   (06.26.15)
There are so many factions in Gaza and all claim they speak for all Gazans. What is worse, the majority of those factions want to establish a caliphate meaning only one religion in the world: Islam. All others will be haram and members of other faiths will be considered to be either fair game for killing or spoils of war.
17. And we recognise....
Benjamin ,   London   (06.26.15)
And we recognise the pope and his christain followers the largest paedophile ring outside of islam....
18. Well, 2000 years of Christians hatred of Jews doesn't change
Moshe   (06.26.15)
overnight. Secular will never learn that goyim will always HATE JEWS - halachah Esav soneh leYakov - and that's a fact!
19. The Pope is the servant of EVIL !
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (06.26.15)
20. above
moishe   (06.27.15)
the state of Palestine and the State of Vatican are both a figment of imagination created in a dream world.
21. 16 the Pope is recognising a fairy tale
C   (06.27.15)
since francis cannot recognise the nightmare or deal with it, he recognises the fairy tale.
22. #12 " the trash bin of hostory. "
A ,   Belgium   (06.27.15)
The only trash bin is the one between your ears. You might try using it to learn how to spell correctly, polaksky.
