Pope Calls to Keep Status Quo in Jerusalem

Quote:
In a special appeal Wednesday, Pope Francis called for respect for the “status quo” in Jerusalem, in the wake of news that the United States will transfer its embassy in Israel to the Holy City.
“My thoughts now turn to Jerusalem,” the Pope said before the large crowd assembled in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall for his weekly General Audience. “I cannot remain silent about my deep concern for the situation that has been created in the last days.”

“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,” he said.

“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,” the Pope continued in his address Wednesday.

And why is it sacred to muslims?

To be blunt, F the UN and their BS "Resolutions."  Who the hell are they to tell Israel what city they can or cannot have as their capital?  Seems to me, during a certain period of time which is very special to Catholics and all other Christians, Jerusalem was the capital then(even though occupied by Rome) - and as such there is no reason what-so-ever, other than kowtowing to a bunch of animalistic terrorists, to hesitate to call Jerusalem the capital of Israel today.

Because they (temporarily) stole it from the Jews about 1300 years ago in retaliation for Jacob buying Esau's birthright with a bowl of porridge?

Maybe Poppie missed world history: Islam was founded by a warlord about 782 AD. 

Apart from the theological viewpoint,[21][22][23] Islam is historically believed to have originated in the early 7th century CE in Mecca,[24] and by the 8th century the Umayyad Islamic caliphate extended from Iberia in the west to the Indus River in the east.

This is why I'm Lutheran despite my wife being Catholic.  Jerusalem really means nothing to me except that it's that capital of Israel.
  

Cordially,
David "The Mahdo One" Nelson
