Prophecy Sign: Signs of the Last Days
While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 NIV
An agreement signed last year making official the Vatican's de facto 2012 recognition of "Palestine," has come into effect, the Holy See said on Saturday. The
signed its first treaty with the "State of Palestine" last June when
it called for moves to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and backed a
two-state solution. "The Holy See and the State of Palestine have notified
each other that the procedural requirements for [the accord's] entry into force
have been fulfilled," the Vatican
said in a statement on Saturday. The U.N. General Assembly adopted a resolution
in 2012 recognizing the Palestinian Authority as a nonmember observer state.
This was welcomed at the time by the Vatican,
which has the same nonmember observer status at the United Nations.
