On Sunday for the first time ever the readings from Quran will be heard at the Vatican. This move was initiated by the Pope Francis in order to bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
During his visit last week to Jordan Israel, and the Palestinian Authority, Pope Francis invited Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Peres’s spokesperson has announced in Times of Israel that Abbas, Peres, and Pope Francis will be joined by Jewish, Christian and Islamic religious leaders.
According to the officials, these evening prayers would be a “pause in politics” and have no political aim behind it other than the desire to bring peace and respect to the Israeli-Palestinian relations, states the Associated Press.
The Vatican will broadcast the event worldwide through the official website.

Over the course of his presidency, Barack Obama has been slowly weaponizing government agencies as a means of stripping away the constitutional rights of American citizens, with aparticular focus on the First Amendment.
The president’s latest assault on free speech comes in the form of a new “rule” from the U.S. Forest Service that requires reporters to buy a permit, which costs $1,500, in order to take pictures or capture video in federal wilderness areas. Those who fail to purchase a permit will, of course, be heavily fined for not falling in line with the new regulation.
According to TPNN, the rule even prevents reporters from shooting footage on their iPhones, and the vague language in the law enables it to be loosely interpreted, giving the Forest Service the ability to only grant journalists of their choosing a permit, enabling them to control the type of news that’s released to the general public.
