"Jerusalem must not get into the hands of the Jews. ... I know, it is not pleasant to see the Turks in possession of our Holy Places. We simply have to put up with that. But to support the Jews in the acquisition of the Holy Places, that we cannot do."
Words of Pope St. Pius X (01/25/1904) to the Jew Theodor Herzl, who had an audience with Pius X in the Vatican to seek his support for the Zionist effort to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. See: tinyurl.com/PPiusX
