Vatican Resumes Campaign for Internationalization of Jerusalem

The Vatican resumed today its campaign for the internationalization of Jerusalem and the Holy Places in Palestine.

Observatore Romano, the Vatican’s newspaper, prominently displayed a statement by Dr. Gaspare Ambrosini, well known Italian jurist, that the world was disregarding Christian interest in the Holy Places while it concentrated its attention on the Arab-Israel conflict. He asserted that even the United Nation’s advocacy of the internationalization of Jerusalem had been disregarded.

Judge Ambrosini called for a solution only of the question of the Holy Places, expressing the hope that such action might help reunify the Christian churches.
