Israel: Both the King of Saudi Arabia and the Pope claims to be sons of Abraham, and a part of God`s plan of salvation of mankind. And they share the same views on Israel, and calls Jerusalem an occupied city.
The Vatican and the Arab League have agreed to work together to promote peace and justice in the world, the Vatican said Friday. The deal was done after a meeting between Pope Benedict XVI and the league’s secretary-general.
In a separate meeting, Amr Moussa and the Vatican’s foreign minister, Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, signed a memorandum of understanding between both sides, a Vatican statement said. During the cordial meetings, emphasis was placed on the importance of the agreement, which is intended to foster increased cooperation between the parties with a view to promoting peace and justice in the world.
Particular importance was given to the role of intercultural and interreligious dialogue, the Vatican statement said. The meetings allowed for an exchange of view on the international situation, especially in the Middle East, and on the need to find a just solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to the other conflicts which afflict the region, the Holy See said.
The pope travels to the Middle East next month on a Holy Land pilgrimage. Benedict will visit Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories. The Arab League demands that Israel shall give up Jerusalem as its capital, that the Jews shall leave their homes in Samaria and Judea, and give this Biblical heartland over to Muslim control so that a new Islamic state can be formed. The Islamic republic of Iran is not a member of the Arab League, located out of what is called the Arab World.

Note this quote from the story:
(The Arab League demands that Israel shall give up Jerusalem as its capital, that the Jews shall leave their homes in Samaria and Judea, and give this Biblical heartland over to Muslim control so that a new Islamic state can be formed.)
Israel give up Jerusalem?
Jews leave Samaria and Judea?
Muslim control of Biblical heartland?
A new Islamic state?
