‘ Final Rise of ‘ The Roman Catholic Empire ‘ as Shimon Peres Proposes United Nations of Religions ‘

#AceNewsServices – ROME (Vatican City) – September 20 – Retired Israeli President Shimon Peres has proposed a new global peace initiative to Pope Francis: A “United Nations of Religions,” given that most wars today have religious, not nationalistic, undercurrents according to Fox News in their report.

The Vatican said Peres pitched the initiative during a 45-minute audience Thursday in the Apostolic Palace. The two men last met when Francis invited the then-Israeli president and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to pray for peace together in the Vatican gardens on June 8.

A few weeks later, war broke out in the Gaza Strip.

Peres told the Catholic publication Famiglia Cristiana that the U.N. is ill-suited to handle today’s conflicts and that a “‘U.N. of Religions’ is the best way to fight terrorists who kill in the name of God.”

Francis promised the Vatican’s attention to the proposal.

Mariam Yahya Ibrahim, whose sentence and detention triggered international outrage, walked off the aircraft cradling her baby and was greeted by Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi.

There were no details on what led up to the 27-year-old’s departure after a month in limbo in Khartoum, but a senior Sudanese official said it had been cleared by the government.

"The authorities did not prevent her departure that was known and approved in advance," the senior official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

#AceWorldNews – ROME – May 20 – Italy’s navy on Tuesday rescued two boats packed with more than 500 migrants, including 133 minors, AFP said.

There were also 64 women in the group, according to the navy.

A navy helicopter spotted the boats south of Sicily on Monday.

Almost all of the new arrivals are on boats leaving northern Libya, which is becoming increasingly lawless.

Many are originally from Eritrea, Somalia and Syria.

` Vatican Attempts to Subvert Justice for the Abused Children by Minimising Culpability to Vatican City ‘

#AceNewsServices – ROME – Vatican – May 05 – The Vatican attempted to minimize its culpability over the Catholic Church’s child sexual abuse scandal as a UN committee on torture grilled the institution over it alleged “climate of impunity” which has prevailed for decades.

In a two-hour hearing in Geneva, the Committee Against Torture was unrelenting in its questioning of the Vatican delegation, asking about past policy decisions, the juridical distinction between the Holy See and Vatican City, and information on specific cases, Reuters reports.

The Vatican, which is set to issue a formal answer on Tuesday, said the church has been cleaning house for the past decade and was determined to protect children further with a series of measures, which they say has led to a decline in cases of sexual abuse by priests.

Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican’s UN ambassador in Geneva, maintained that the treaty only applied to the Vatican City, which covers an area of less than half a square kilometre and numbers fewer than 1,000. Tomasi said that although the Holy See can be viewed as a moral force, the “agent of justice” for crimes perpetuated against Catholics were the authorities in the states where those offences occurred.

“It should be stressed, particularly in light of much confusion, that the Holy See has no jurisdiction,” he said in opening remarks.

“The Holy See intends to focus exclusively on the Vatican City state,” he told the committee. “State authorities are obligated to protect and when necessary to prosecute persons under their jurisdiction.”

But committee member, Felice Gaer, asked if the Vatican was in fact being proactive in cleaning house internally, why had the institution’s first report to the committee been filed 9 years late. Gaer, an American human rights expert, further took issue with the church’s “alleged distinction” between the Vatican City and the Holy See, which can roughly be viewed as the central government of the Catholic Church.

The differentiation, she said, “would create important gaps in the coverage” of the treaty and is a “troubling” bit of legalese, AP reports.

“We call for all parties to adhere to the strict meaning of the convention,” Gaer told the Vatican delegation led by Tomasi.

The Vatican delegation’s appearance in Geneva marks the first time that the committee charged with enforcing the UN Convention Against Torture, which the Vatican ratified in 2002, has hauled the Holy See before its members.

Fan And Policeman ‘Shot’ Before Football Italian Cup Final

At least one fan and one police officer have reportedly been shot ahead of the Italian Cup final between Napoli and Fiorentina in Rome. The football supporter was believed to have been hit in the chest and was in a serious condition, while the police officer was shot in the hand. The shootings reportedly happened in an area where fans were gathering for the match at the Olympic Stadium. There were also reports of serious crowd trouble in the Tor di Quinto area close to the venue.

Video in Italian, but shows the scenes

At least three Napoli supporters were reportedly injured in clashes, as rival supporters threw firecrackers and other objects at each other. Fans of Roma, one of the capital’s clubs, were also reportedly seen throwing bottles and stones. Inside the stadium, Napoli captain Marek Hamsik was seen going over to talk with the fans and calm them down before kick-off, which was delayed by 45 minutes.

Napoli overcame the dramatic scenes to claim their second Italian Cup trophy in three years with a 3-1 win over Fiorentina. There was more chaos at the final whistle when Napoli fans invaded the pitch to celebrate, although they were quickly brought under control. Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Senate President Piero Grasso were present at the game. Mr Grasso, who presented the trophy to Napoli at the end of the match, described those responsible as “delinquents, not supporters”. “A game of football cannot be turned into a war between rival gangs,” he said.

` UN Committee against Torture Who Calls Nations to Defend their Human Rights Records Calls Vatican to Account ‘

#AceNewsServices – ROME – UNITED NATIONS – May 02 – The United Nations Committee against Torture, which requires nations to come before the panel and defend their human rights records, will put an unlikely subject on its hot seat next week when it calls in the Vatican.

The UN panel, which includes representatives from China, the U.S. and eight other nations, will meet in Geneva and call the Vatican to account for its record on torture and inhumane punishment in a procedure to be aired live on the Internet beginning Monday.

It’s standard procedure for all 155 nations that signed on to the committee’s convention to submit a report and come before the panel, and the Vatican is both a nation-state and a signatory.

Cyprus, Lithuania, Guinea, Montenegro, Sierra Leone, Thailand and Uruguay are also scheduled to appear beginning next week.

“The Holy See initiated the procedure by submitting their written report,” Felice Gaer, the U.S. representative and a vice-chair of the committee, told FoxNews.com.

At past sessions, nations that carry out or condone practices universally recognized as inhumane have been forced to defend their records.

The Centre for Constitutional Rights, which represents the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, has called for the committee to grill the Vatican regarding long-standing allegations of sexual abuse among clergy, contending failures in the Holy See’s response to the scandal amounts to a violation of the convention.

While it is possible the panel will raise long-standing allegations of sexual abuse among clergy, the Vatican report focuses mostly on what the church has and has not done to stop other nations from carrying out human rights violations.

Officials for the Holy See did not immediately return requests for comment.

` Pope Francis Meets Robert Mugabe During Sainthood Ceremony in Rome ‘

#AceWorldNews – ROME – April 27 – Pope Francis met Robert Mugabe on Sunday during a ceremony in Rome to make saints of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II

The ageing Zimbabwean president, who was with his wife Grace, was among a number of heads of state to attend the ceremony.

He is barred from entering the European Union because of alleged human rights abuses and vote rigging at home, but the ban does not apply to Vatican City, which is not a member of the EU.

President Mugabe, who describes himself as a committed Catholic, also attended Pope Francis’s inaugural Mass last year, following his election by cardinals in the secret conclave held in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel.

He also came to Rome for Pope John Paul’s funeral in 2005 and for his beatification in 2011.

Last year, the EU suspended sanctions against 81 officials and eight firms in Zimbabwe, following what it described as a “peaceful” referendum on a new constitution.

However, sanctions remain in place against Mr Mugabe himself, partly at Britain’s insistence.

The talks between the first Latin American pope and the first African-American US president will focus on tackling the gap between rich and poor, but could spill over into thornier issues such as abortion, contraception and gay rights.

“The Holy Father has been an inspiration to people around the world, including me,” Obama said in an interview with the Italian daily Corriere della Sera published on Thursday.

“It does not mean we agree on every issue,” he added.

` Vatican has accepted Resignation of a German Roman Catholic Prelate known as the `Bishop of Bling ‘

#AceWorldNews – ROME – March 26 – The Vatican has accepted the resignation of a German Roman Catholic prelate known as the ‘bishop of bling’, Reuters said.

Bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst of Limburg, who reportedly spent 31 million euro of Church funds on his residence, was ordered to leave his diocese last October and offered his resignation at the time.

The investigation was completed, and an apostolic administrator, Mons. Manfred Grothe was appointed to run the diocese for the time being. Tebartz-van Elst will be offered another position.

Pope Francis has asked the faithful of the diocese of Limburg to accept the decision “with docility” and to work to restore a “climate of charity and reconciliation,” according to the statement.

` Crimean’s are not the only ones that want `Independence of State ‘ as `Veneto ‘ vie’s to break from Rome ‘

#AceWorldNews As Crimeans make their way to the polls this Sunday, another region further in the heart of Europe is also deciding its fate in a referendum: the Italian region of Veneto, which is voting on whether to break with Rome.

The independence movement insists the industrial northern region’s wealth is being drain by Rome’s mismanagement of the financial crisis.

Following in the footsteps of Scotland and Catalonia, Venice – the capital of the Italian region of Veneto – will be holding a referendum to form an independent republic.

About 3.8 million people in the region are eligible to vote in the referendum, which runs through Friday.

Leaders of the independence movement say they are not going to wait for Rome’s approval, and if the population votes in favour they will begin the separation process.

The latest polls carried out by the independence movement show that over 60 percent of the population is in favour of becoming independent.

“If there is a majority yes vote, we have scholars drawing up a declaration of independence and there are businesses in the region who say they will begin paying taxes to local authorities instead of to Rome,” Lodovico Pizzati, the spokesman for the independence movement, told the Telegraph newspaper.

Malaysia Airlines Disaster : ` At least two reported Malaysian jet passengers ‘safe at home’ following passports stolen ‘

#AceWorldNews says reports are coming in that that at least two passengers registered aboard missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been found safe and sound in their home countries.
The Austrian and Italian citizens reportedly had their passports stolen earlier in Thailand.

An Austrian national thought to have been aboard the plane that disappeared off the coast of Vietnam early Saturday is alive and safe, an Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman revealed.

“Our embassy got the information that there was an Austrian on board. That was the passenger list from Malaysia Airlines.

Our system came back with a note that this is a stolen passport,” the spokesman said, as quoted by Reuters.

The man, who was found at home by police, had his passport stolen while travelling in Thailand in 2012.

However, this was not the end of the story. An Italian ‘ghost’ passenger was also discovered, according to the Foreign Ministry in Rome.

` Armed attacks by rebel movement `Renamo ‘ have displaced more than 6,000 people in Mozambique ‘

#AceWorldNews says that attacks by the opposition party and former rebel movement, Renamo, have displaced more than 6,000 people in the central parts of Mozambique, Prime Minister Alberto Vaquina has said.

Armed attacks by Renamo have displaced 6,727 people in the central Gorongosa district alone, Vaquina told the Mozambican parliament on Friday.

An agreement signed between Renamo and the ruling Frelimo party in Rome in 1992 ended a 16-year civil war.

However, violence flared up again in May when Renamo gunmen attacked a police station at Muxungue in central Mozambique, killing 5 police and injuring several others, AP said.

` Pompeii suffers heavy rains falls causing stones and wall to collapse at the `Temple of Venus’ – Reports’

#AceWorldNews says that ROME (AP) has stated that top Italian culture officials are calling for swift action to save Pompeii, the ancient Roman city encased in volcanic ash, from further ruin after heavy rains reportedly caused part of a wall to collapse.

Giancarlo Galan, the head of a parliamentary culture commission, on Sunday lamented the latest collapse at the archaeological site near Naples.

Italian media reported that Saturday’s rainstorm provoked the partial collapse of a wall around a necropolis and caused some stones to fall at The Temple of Venus.

Despite the damage, Pompeii remained open to tourists Sunday. But its offices were closed and further details were not immediately available.

Last year, the Italian government appointed a special official to ensure that European Union and Italian funds were properly spent to repair and protect Pompeii.
