NWO Puppet Perez Dies: Remembering When...He promoted the One World Religion
Remembering "Pope" Francis' encounters with Shimon Peres (Rome Reports)
Throughout the three and a half years of his pontificate, Pope Francis has met with Shimon Peres more often than any other world leader.
The first meeting took place in April 2013. At the time, the Israeli President invited the pope to visit his country.
"Thank you very much and I'm expecting you in Jerusalem, and not just me, but all the people."
An invitation that was fulfilled because Pope Francis visited the Holy Land in May of the following year. On this occasion, they met at the president's residence and engaged in one of the warmest dialogues between the two.
"Peace is a product of fantasy and inspiration, and you have brought both. We need it.”
"With my imagination and inspiration I would like to invent a new beatitude: which fits to me in this very moment: Blessed who enters the house of a wise and good man. And I feel blessed.”
In Bethlehem, Pope Francis announced an unprecedented proposal to bring together the two leaders of Israel and Palestine to the Vatican to pray together for peace. This initiative was fulfilled a few weeks later, in early June.

"Never will I forget the families, parents and children who paid the cost of war. All my life I shall never stop to act for peace.”
Shimon Peres would return to the Vatican on two other occasions, both as former president. The first was in September 2014. He spoke for 45 minutes about the latest crisis between Israel and Palestine as well as an initiative for the creation of a UN of religions.
The last meeting between the two was in last June.
"How good to see you! Thank you, thank you very much indeed.”
Shimon Peres was about to turn 93 years old. The two leaders looked visibly shaken and the tone of the meeting was very warm. This was his last farewell.
Peres proposes ‘UN for religions’ to pope at Vatican

He used the talks to highlight human rights abuses from Hamas and to discuss the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe.
Peres, 91, who was the world’s oldest head of state
until his term ended six weeks ago, met with Francis amid heightened
tensions in the Middle East.
But the main topic of conversation was Peres’s idea to create a UN-like organization he called “the United Religions.”
Peres said the Argentina-born pontiff was the only world figure respected enough to bring an end to the wars raging in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world.
“In the past, most of the wars in the world were motivated by the idea of nationhood,” Peres said. “But today, wars are incited using religion as an excuse.”
Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi confirmed to reporters that Peres had pitched his idea for “the United Religions” but said Francis did not commit to it.
“The pope listened, showing his interest, attention, and encouragement,” Lombardi said, adding that the pope pointed to the Pontifical Councils for Interreligious Dialogue and for Justice and Peace as existing agencies “suitable” for supporting interfaith peace initiatives.
The summit between Peres and Francis is the third high-profile meeting between the leaders in little more than four months. They met for the first time in late May, when Francis became the fourth pope to visit the Holy Land in the modern era. On that trip, Francis invited Peres and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to the Vatican for a prayer meeting in June, which they both attended.
Since then, however, tensions in the Middle East have risen amid increased bloodshed in Gaza and in Syria. Lombardi said the 45-minute conversation between the two men – a longer-than-average meeting for the pontiff – did not touch upon “current political issue in any real depth,” instead focusing on Peres’s idea for the United Religions.
Lombardi said Francis praised Peres as a “man of peace,” and said the unusually long meeting was a reflection of the pope’s “deep esteem and appreciation” for the former Israeli leader.
Peres was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for peace 20 years ago, along with then-prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, then chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
But Peres praised Francis as the only world figure respected across national boundaries and different faiths.
In an interview with the Catholic Magazine Famiglia Cristiana, Peres called on Francis to leverage his respect to create an interfaith organization to curb religious violence.
“What we need is an organization of United Religions... as the best way to combat terrorists who kill in the name of faith,” Peres said. “What we need is an unquestionable moral authority who says out loud, ‘No, God does not want this and does not allow it.’” After meeting with Peres, Francis held a 30-minute closeddoor meeting with Jordanian Prince El-Hassan bin Talal, who sponsors the Royal Institute for Interfaith Studies to promote religious dialogue. Lombardi said that meeting dovetailed into the day’s topic of interfaith cooperation and peace.
