    They'll probably end up arguing who got there first.

    The Pope, a Muslim, and a Rabbi all go to the Holy Land.
    When they get off the plane in Mecca,
    the Rabbi turns to the Pope and says,
    "You let the Muslim buy the tickets?"

    VATICAN CITY (RNS) Pope Francis will be accompanied on his first visit to the Middle East by Argentine Rabbi Abraham Skorka and Muslim leader Omar Abboud — two friends from Buenos Aires.

    It is the first time a pope has made an official visit accompanied by members of other faiths, and it underscores the interfaith focus of Francis’ trip to the Holy Land, the Vatican said Thursday (May 15).
    “This dimension of interreligious dialogue has great significance,” the Vatican’s official spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, told the media.
    Skorka, rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary, and Abboud, president of the Institute for Interreligious Dialogue in Buenos Aires, are part of the official delegation for the May 24-26 trip, which will include Jordan, the West Bank and Israel. Both men are longtime friends and collaborators from Francis’ days as archbishop of Buenos Aires.
    Lombardi outlined details of the pontiff’s trip, which will include celebrating Mass with 1,400 children at a stadium in Amman and meeting the children of Iraqi, Syrian and Palestinian refugees.
    Pope Francis will follow in the footsteps of his immediate two predecessors, Pope John Paul II, who made the pilgrimage in 2000, and Pope Benedict XVI, who went in 2009.
    During this visit the pope will meet the king and queen of Jordan, Israeli President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
    Francis planned this visit to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a historic meeting between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras of the Orthodox Church in 1964.
    He will meet the current patriarch, Bartholomew I of Constantinople, spiritual leader of 250 million Orthodox Christians, on four different occasions during his stay.
    Lombardi strongly condemned recent attacks by Jewish extremists on a church and the Notre Dame Center, a Vatican complex, in Jerusalem ahead of the pope’s visit.

    Waiting to see what this is really all about. ~

    Maybe what it sounds like...another step in the reunification of the Catholic church, and seeking that Christian ways are allowed to continue. The Israeli and Palestinian governments don't allow religious rites to be performed in the Upper Room.

    "Pope prays at Israeli wall in unprecedented gesture" 05/25/14
    The pope is playing with spiritual fire as he is now directly interfering with God's end time prophetic plan. He is rejecting the authority of the Bible and leading the Catholic church in judgment.
    I knew this would happen because there are many Middle East leaders in the Catholic church who said vicious things about Israel and were NEVER checked my Rome.
    The Israeli's built this wall to stop the suicide bombers from freely entering into Israel: it worked.
    Israel offered the Palestinians peace in 1990 and turned it down and started their intifada against Israel. They have no one to blame but themselves and their rejection of the authority of the Bible. It appears the pope is now with them in rejecting the authority of the Bible when it comes to God's end time prophetic plan.

    "It was an unprecedented gesture which delighted Palestinians. They were also pleased that during his various addresses in Bethlehem, Francis used the term "State of Palestine".
    His decision to travel to Bethlehem by helicopter direct from Amman, where he spent the first day of his three-day visit to the Holy Land, was also interpreted by both Christian and Muslim Palestinians as tacit recognition of the fight for a Palestinian homeland.
    “The fact that he came straight from Jordan is a sign that the Pope sees Palestine as a state,” said Ilias Abdo, 59, a Christian clergyman from Bethlehem. “That was a deliberate decision – it was not by chance. This is a political visit as much as a religious one. He is hinting at recognition of an independent Palestinian state.”

    Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.

    Now, what would be perfect is if:

    no, wait, isn't that how the Crusades started? .............sigh...........
