Catholic Church Policy Towards the Israelies and the Palestinians

“The root of the Israeli-Palestinian problem is not religious or ethnic; it is purely political. The problem dates back to the creation of the state of Israel and the partitioning of Palestine in 1948 – following the persecution systematically organized against the Jews – decided by the great powers without taking into consideration the populations present in the Holy Land. This is the real cause of all of the wars that followed. In order to remedy a grave injustice committed in Europe against one third of the world’s Jewish population, Europe itself, supported by other powerful nations, decided to commit and committed a new injustice against the Palestinian population, which was innocent in the slaughter of the Jews.”

Having said this, Fr. Samir maintains in any case that the existence of Israel is today a matter of fact that cannot be rejected, independently of its original sin. This is also the official position of the Holy See, which has long been in favor of two states, Israeli and Palestinian.

  1. This is what I have been telling people for years. So few people realize how Israel was created after World War II. Without the support of the United States, Israel would not survive in the midst of the Muslim nations. I believe that while the official purpose was to right some wrongs done to Jews, the actual motivation was for the USA to have a puppet, or at least a friend, in the middle east to meddle with politics in the region, especially concerning oil.
