The President made a historic announcement, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. However, Muslims all over the world have been furious over the decisions. The mainstream media has taken the side of the angry radical Muslims and have been condemning Trump for his decision. What is most surprising is what the Pope had to say about Trump’s decision.
“My thoughts now turn to Jerusalem. I cannot remain silent about my deep concern for the situation that has been created in the last days,” said the Pope at the Vatican for his weekly General Audience.
“At the same time, I would like to make a heartfelt appeal for everyone’s commitment to respect the city’s status quo, in conformity with the pertinent United Nations Resolutions. Jerusalem is a unique city, sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims, who venerate the Holy Sites of their respective religions there, and it has a special vocation to peace,” said the Pope.
“I pray to the Lord that this identity may be preserved and strengthened for the benefit of the Middle East and of the entire world, and that wisdom and prudence prevail, to avoid adding new elements of tension in an already convulsed worldwide panorama marked by so many cruel conflicts,” said the Pope.
