According to Il Tempo, Israeli sources reportedly told the Italian newspaper that the pope is "in the crosshairs of ISIS." The report stated that Francis is being targeted because he is "the greatest exponent of the Christian religions" and the "bearer of false truth."
The Vatican, though, denounced the report.
"There is nothing serious to this," Father Federico Lombardi S.J., a Vatican spokesman, told Catholic News Agency. "There is no particular concern in the Vatican. This news has no foundation."
The Catholic News Agency reports that Italy has issued a nationwide terror alert, despite no imminent threats or specifics about a potential attack on the country.
Comment: As numerous countries are hyping the terror threat, it appears the PTB may have something up their sleeves. Rather interesting that this threat against the Pope comes from the Israelis, as Mossad and Shin Bet (Israel's Security Agency) have long, odious histories of committing false flags.
