Change Agent Robert Zimmerman (stage name: Bob Dylan), Friend of Chabad

Dylan’s Hebrew Verse

Wed. Sep 26, 2007

Fans are accustomed to seeing Bob Dylan perform on large stages and at major music festivals, but the legendary crooner made an appearance at a smaller venue last week, where he got in touch with his spiritual roots.

While in Atlanta for a September 22 concert with Elvis Costello and Amos Lee, Dylan (ne Robert Zimmerman) attended the Chabad-Lubavitch of Georgia’s Yom Kippur services, where he was called up to the Torah and recited the blessings in Hebrew, the organization reported.

Hopeless

More confused "traditional Catholic" journalism related to Orthodox Judaic rabbis; relativizing traditional Catholic prayers for conversion of Judaic souls with Judaic racist, "prayers" of self-glorification and derision of non-"Jews"; getting played by the dialectic between foaming-at-the-mouth Foxman and "reasonable" Rabbi Neusner ...

http://www.remnantnewspaper.com/Archives/archive-2007-0831-ecumenical_dialogue.htm

Rabbi Neusner posits a "fair" comparison between a Catholic prayer for the souls of Judaics and a racist, self-worshipping Judaic "prayer" of derision against non-"Jews" and a "traditional Catholic" journalist parrots that sophistry to his readers. And just as Rabbi Neusner, that "traditional Catholic," out of ignorance or otherwise, God knows, makes no mention of the curse which Orthodox Judaics utter against Christians, birkat ha minim, three times daily as part of the shmoneh esre, or any of the mandatory Orthodox Judaic curses on Christian churches and graveyards.

There is a debate shaping up on this matter which is due to a great deal of sacrifice on the part of people other than "trads" like Alessio. That debate will not be won by sloppyness, half-measures and double-mindedness from "balanced" "traditional Catholics."

"Israel" Further "Cleansing" Itself of Christian Clerics

Israel Tightens Policy on Re-entry Visas

JERUSALEM, Israel, SEPT. 25, 2007 (Zenit.org).- The Israeli government is no longer granting routine re-entry visas to Arab Christian religious leaders who wish to travel in and out of occupied Palestinian territories.

According to information given to the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation by Christian clergy in Jerusalem, Christian church workers will now have to apply for re-entry visas at Israeli consulates each time they travel outside of areas occupied by Israel, a process that normally takes months.

Until now, re-entry visas were normally granted, and church workers traveled around the area and overseas with relative ease.

The new policy means that clergy will no longer be able to move freely between their parishes in occupied territories.

The Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation offered the example of Father Fares Khleifat, the only Greek Melkite priest in Ramallah, who traveled to Jordan for several days earlier this month. When he tried to return to his parish on Sept. 14, he was stopped at the Israeli border, and his multiple-entry visa was canceled.

He has been forced to remain in Jordan and his parish now has no priest.

Columbia University President Lee Bollinger: "Know Thy Enemy"

Indeed, Mr. Bollinger. I have come to know my enemy very well. It is the ideology espoused by yourself and others who would claim that Iranian President Ahmadinejad is my enemy. You do not speak for me or for any true American. You do not represent any of the ideals that the United States was founded upon. You speak for the six-pointed state that calls itself "Israel" and the insane ideology called "Judaism" which sees ancient enemies in current figures and populations who exhibit no hostility; an ideology which crushes dissent and darkens minds.

But I thank you for your display of insane chutzpah before the nation nonetheless; for exposing your imposture as an academic and upholder of the principles of free inquiry and laying bare your true nature, that of the lawyerly sophist; that of the rabbis of Judaism. For those with eyes to see, you've only added to the miles-high mountain of evidence of what the real enemy is and how deeply ensconced it is within our society.

Delusional Judaics continue to Label Ahmadinejad as Haman/Amalek




"I think it is disgusting that Columbia is having this Haman, this Hitler, speak here,'' said Harv Hilowitz, referring to an ancient Persian official who ordered the killing of Jews ...

Hilowitz, a graduate of Columbia's Teacher's College who traveled two hours from Kingston, New York, to protest outside Columbia, said, while waving an Israeli flag, that freedom of speech shouldn't be afforded to "dictators'' like Ahmadinejad.

Benedict on St. John Chrysostom

Papal audience: focus on Chrysostom, domestic Church

Vatican, Sep. 19, 2007 (CWNews.com) - At his regular weekly public audience on September 19, Pope Benedict XVI (bio - news) resumed his series of talks on the key figures of the early Church, speaking about St. John Chrysostom.

The Holy Father reminded the 15,000 people gathered in St. Peter's Square that this year the Church is commemorating the 1600th anniversary of the death of St. John Chrysostom, who is revered as a doctor of the Church by both Catholic and Orthodox believers. Because of the power and influence of his work, the Pope added, "it could be said that he is still alive today" ...

http://www.cwnews.com/news/viewstory.cfm?recnum=53615


If St. John Chrysostom is still "alive" today, there's no evidence of it in the Vatican.

One can only imagine the pity with which St. John Chrysostom looks down upon this man, Benedict XVI, and much more so, the many souls who are misled by him in precisely the area that the great Church Doctor preached so compellingly. What would that stalwart opponent of Judaizing errors say to Benedict of his contention that the Judaic wait for a messiah is not in vain; that rabbinic exegesis is of benefit to Christians, or his raising of the question of whether Christians even have a right to interpret Scripture after the Nazi persecutions?

Dear God in heaven, save us from the double-mindedness of this pope who lauds St. John Chrysostom in word and mocks him in deed to the extreme degree that he does. Would Benedict dare deny that today, St. John Chrysostom would likely be thrown out of any given Catholic seminary before completing his first day due to "antisemitism"?

Benedict repeatedly tells us that Christians have a special "common mission" with the rabbis who call themselves "Jews." He calls them our "elder brothers in the faith." He says that we need to increase our "religious relations" with them. Benedict prays with the rabbis, is pictured in their synagogues and presides over a virtual conga line of rabbis processing through the Vatican.

Benedict XVI in the Synagogue of Cologne

Let us hear from St. John Chrysostom on this topic:

So the godlessness of the Jews and the pagans is on a par. But the Jews practice a deceit which is more dangerous. In their synagogue stands an invisible altar of deceit on which they sacrifice not sheep and calves but the souls of men. (Adversus Judaeos, Homily I, St. John Chrysostom)

Good God! Talk about contrast. Is there any more contrast between black and white than exists between these two positions? I think not. It is plainly evident that these two positions cannot both be correct. Given that St. John Chrysostom is a Church Doctor and his position has the support of scripture and 1964 years of Church tradition, I'm going to have to side with him here.

Sacred Heart University Teaches Hypocritical Noahide Doctrine of Aushwitz Homocidal Gas Chambers

Catholic and Jewish delegations meet Pope

CCJU hosts study tour to Poland and Italy

Carli-Rae Panny

Issue date: 9/20/07

Sacred Heart's Center for Catholic-Jewish Understanding (CCJU), continues to work at strengthening the knowledge and acceptance between different religions.

This month, President Anthony J. Cernera and Rabbi Eugene Korn, Associate Executive Director for the Center for Catholic-Jewish Understanding, accompanied five American bishops and two rabbis to the holy Italian city and later, to Krakow, Poland.

"I hope students at Sacred Heart realize how much good work and progress the CCJU is making. I will say that no other catholic university is playing such a large role in working to unite the two religious groups," Cernera said ...

Participants attended an audience with Pope Benedict XVI and visited Poland for a tour of the former Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz.

According to Rabbi Korn, the point of the trip was to give Pope Benedict the CCJU "Nostra Aetate" Award for 2007.

However, Dr. Cernera explained, out of respect for the Pope's hard work, he will be the only Nostra Aetate recipient this year.

"We discussed with the bishops and the Vatican specific plans for diocese education in Catholic teaching about Jews and Judaism. We also went with the bishops to Krakow, Poland, the location of Auschwitz and discussed the Holocaust," said Korn.

Cernera believes that this experience is important as a whole.

"Fifty years ago, the thought of Jews and Catholics working together was unheard of. It's really is remarkable," said Cernera.

According to Korn, Nostra Aetate, an award given to one Christian and one Jewish person every year, was a main component of reasoning behind the trip.

The two chosen candidates are decided upon because they have shown superior work towards advancing Christian-Jewish understanding.

"The CCJU chose the Pope this year because of his singular stature. His visit to a synagogue in Cologne and his visit to Auschwitz early in his papacy signaled to the world that he considers Catholic-Jewish relations to be a high priority at the Vatican and for him personally," said Korn ...

"The study tour to Auschwitz and Rome is a tremendous step forward in deepening this relationship," said Guillaine Dale, office manager and Executive Secretary for the Center for Catholic-Jewish Understanding ...

After explaining to the Pope that the rabbis and bishops had been to Auschwitz the day prior to meeting him, the Pope was keenly interested, Korn said of his conversation with the Pope.

"The most important part of the trip was standing in the gas chambers and then discussing with the bishops the history and need for all of us to work together so that that kind of evil never again happens," said Korn.

For Cernera, this trip marked his fifth visit to the death camp ...

Students like Lisa Cavalli, senior, West Babylon, N.Y. were unaware of what the trip entailed.

"I knew they went to the Vatican but I had no idea they visited Auschwitz. That sounds like such an interesting and educational opportunity," said Cavalli.

Some Sacred Heart students expressed an interest in possibly attending a trip like this in the future.

"I think just knowing about the horrific events that took place in Poland during the Holocaust and being there would be such a dramatic and emotional experience. I'd be very interested seeing that," said Lando Cox, junior, Richmond, Ind.

In the future it is possible that CCJU would have an opportunity for students to visit Poland and Rome and possibly Jerusalem as well.

"A trip to Rome is a definite possibility if student interest is high. There are very preliminary plans to bring students to Poland, but it's in the early stages," said Cernera.

It is a matter of finding a way to fund a trip to Rome.

"It would be enormously educational and open up new horizons. Perhaps the students, the administration and CCJU should begin talking about how we can make this happen," said Korn.

Eighteen

Supposed University of Florida tazer victim, Andrew Meyer was wearing a shirt with the number eighteen on the back at the time of the incident. The story of the tazering incident broke on 9/18. 9 is one half of 18. The phase of the moon on 9/18 was exactly half-dark and half-light, or in a state of balance in the occultist view.

http://stardate.org/nightsky/moon/

The 18 card of the tarot deck is the moon card. The moon card, has two pillars. Kabbalah has two pillars. Kabbalists presume to "restore the balance" of the universe between the pillar of mercy and the pillar of severity. Occultists conquer their enemies by dividing them (creating balance) and pairing them off against each other. Pundits were split on the issue of the tazering incident.

A half-light and half-dark moon represents duality. Kabbalists believe in a dualistic, half male, half female god. They believe Adam was created in the image of this hermaphrodite god. The number 18 tarot card also features a crayfish. The crayfish has occult significance for being able to impregnate itself, thus containing both the male and female principle and hearkening back to the pre-fall occult hermaphrodite mockery of Adam, the first man, and the utopian state which occultists seek to "return" to.

Andrew Meyer is said to be associated with the Hillel at the University of Florida. Hillel is the student arm of the ADL of B'nai B'rith. B'nai B'rith is Judaic Freemasonry. Freemason, Albert Pike states that tarot contains the Kabbalistic alphabet (Morals and Dogma, p.777). There are 18 consonants in the Hebrew alphabet. Orthodox Judaics pray Shemoneh 'Esreh (18 benedictions).

In Kabbalah, 18 is the numerical value of chai or "life." Chai is the name of the transcendent soul of Atzilut,
the highest of the four Kabbalistic worlds of creation. Atzilut, literally, means "emanation."

Atzilut is the world of Divine emanation, wholly conscious of its Divine origin. The process of "emanation" is described in Chassidut as one of he'elem v'gilui ("concealment and revelation," i.e., the process of revealing the essence of that which had hitherto been concealed).

http://www.inner.org/worlds/atzilut.htm

[according to] the theory of the cosmic aeons of the Sabbatians ... the Torah of atzilut ... is the "true" Torah which, like the "mystery of the Godhead" it makes manifest, has been in a state of concealment for the entire period of the exile. Now that the redemption has commenced it is about to be revealed and although it is identical with the Torah of beriah [creation], it's way of being read will be different, thus, all the prohibitions and commandments of the Torah of beriah will now be reinterpreted in light of the World of atzilut, in which (to take but one example), as is stated in several Kabbalistic sources, there is no such thing as forbidden sexual practices ... The concept of the two Torahs was an extremely important one for Sabbatian nihilism ... (Gershom Scholem, The Messianic Idea in Judaism, pp.111-112)

The eighteenth degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry is titled, "Knight Rose Croix" (knight of the rose cross). Rosicrucians are knights of the rose cross. In the 1615 Rosicrucian manifesto, Confessio Fraternitatis, it is stated that in the future the occult would make it's secrets known. Michael A. Hoffman refers to this era foretold by the Rosicrucians as the Revelation of the Method era, or the Making Manifest of all that is Hidden era. Albert Pike states that the 18th degree, Knight Rose Croix, teaches, " ...extinction of evil and sorrow, by a Redeemer or Messiah yet to come ..." (Morals and Dogma, p.287).

The occult is gambling that they have alchemically processed humanity to the degree that they will be able to reveal their secrets to us and we will do nothing about it; that the revelations will not free us but will only enslave us further. Will you allow them to win their wager?

Benedict's Elder Brothers and their Tradition of Deceit

Indictments Hit Prominent Crown Heights Family

Marissa Brostoff

Wed. Sep 19, 2007

Two members of an influential family in Brooklyn’s Chabad-Lubavitch community were arrested this week after being indicted by a federal grand jury The indictment from the district attorney in Philadelphia charges Moshe Rubashkin with leaving hazardous waste at a textile plant in Allentown, Pa. Rubashkin is a communal leader in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, the stronghold of the Chabad-Lubavitch sect of Orthodox Judaism.

Rubashkin’s son, Sholom, was also charged with misleading an investigation into a fire at the plant. The younger Rubashkin ran the real estate branch of the family’s business under the alias Sam Sternburg ...

The family got its start in America when the patriarch, Aaron Rubashkin, came over from Russia in 1945. Once in Brooklyn, Rubashkin, set up a local butcher shop in Brooklyn. In the ’80s, the family began expanding its business interests aggressively. Two of Rubashkin’s sons set up the AgriProcessors slaughterhouse in Postville, Iowa. The plant, which produces meat under the Aaron’s Best label, has been under scrutiny due to complaints about the way it has treated the animals that are slaughtered there and the people who work there.

Nathan Lewin, a lawyer who is representing the family in the case, did not return calls seeking comment ...

In the indictment, the EPA claims that when it attempted to charge the party responsible for costs incurred in cleaning out the mill, it discovered that the property had been held by a confusing tangle of real estate companies with no clear owner. Sholom Rubashkin, 28, ran the real estate branch of the family business under his alias and informed the EPA that he had no connection to the mill site at the time of the fires. The indictment alleges that Sholom “knowingly and willfully made materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements.

http://www.forward.com/articles/11650/


Wow, the language of this indictment is refreshingly appropriate. How often we see accusations of lying referred to euphemistically or avoided altogether today, particularly where Talmud-upholding "chosen people" are concerned--where it quite often applies. But here we see lies referred to specifically for what they are--knowingly and willfully made materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements--and in reference to "chosen" Lubavitchers.

This is a positive development, but there is still a long way to go. In a sane world it would be common knowledge that knowingly and willfully making materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements is the essence of the Talmudic tradition and to be expected from pious Orthodox Judaics, not only the indicted Lubavitchers referred to in the above article, but also their lawyer, Nathan Lewin and all Orthodox Judaics who uphold the Talmudic tradition and it's offshoots, such as Zionism, as well as Judaism's philo-Judaic stepchildren, Freemasonry and the myriad of Kabbalistic variants. We have a long way to go before we arrive at the point when Orthodox Judaic Lieberman and Skull and Bones Bush are perceived as suspect liars before they even open their mouths, and certainly not worthy candidates for high office.

As a society we have come to expect that our leaders will tell us lies. We've come to believe that God's chosen people are liars. These are symptoms of a terribly, terribly sick society and the prognosis is death if the illness remains untreated.

Benedict XVI Wishes Chief Rabbi a Happy New Year

Benedict XVI Wishes Chief Rabbi a Happy New Year

VATICAN CITY, SEPT. 19, 2007 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI sent the Chief Rabbi of Rome a message for the Jewish festivities celebrated this month.

The Pope expressed in a message his "most cordial and sincere best wishes" to Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni and the entire Jewish community in Italy's capital.

The Jewish calendar marks Rosh Hashana (New Year) Sept. 12-14; Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) Sept. 21-22; and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) Sept. 27-Oct. 3.

"These festivities," the Holy Father wrote, "can be occasions for many blessings from the Eternal and a source of immense joy, so that the will to promote the peace that the world so greatly needs will grow within each one of us. May God in his goodness protect your community and grant that the friendship between us deepen, in this city of Rome and everywhere."

Benedict's Elder Brothers and their Voodoo Ritual

Ultra-Orthodox Jews performing the "kapparot."

The ancient [kapparot] ceremony involves swinging a live chicken overhead in a ritual transference of the person's sins in preparation for the day of atonement. It may be performed anytime between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. ("Court rules 'kapparot' ritual violates animal slaughter laws," Amiram Cohen and Yair Ettinger, Haaretz, September 18, 2007)

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/904943.html

"An animal used as a sort of vicarious sacrifice on the day previous to the Day of Atonement. As a rule, a cock is taken by a male, and a hen by a female person, and after the recitation of Ps. cvii. 17-20 and Job xxxiii. 23-24 the fowl is swung around the head three times while the right hand is put upon the animal's head. At the same time the following is thrice said in Hebrew: "This be my substitute, my vicarious offering, my atonement. This cock [or hen] shall meet death, but I shall find a long and pleasant life of peace!" After this the animal is slaughtered and given to the poor, or, what is deemed better, is eaten by the owners while the value of it is given to the poor." (Jewish Encyclopedia, "kapparah")

Swaaaneee, how I love ya, how I love ya ...

It looks like the tazering incident at the University of Florida was a bit of vaudeville theater. Al Jolson would have blushed. The kid's no Abe Foxman though.

Tasered student may perform at Hillel

Published: 09/19/2007

Jewish Telegraph Agency

A Jewish student at the University of Florida who gained national fame for being Tasered may perform with Hillel.

Andrew Meyer, who was forcibly subdued Tuesday during a speech by U.S. Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), was seen performing recently by two Florida Hillel staffers, Rabbi Yoni Kaiser-Blueth told JTA, and Meyer has been considered for a performance at an upcoming Hillel open-mic event.

In the wake of the Taser episode Kaiser-Blueth, the Florida Hillel's associate director of Jewish student life, said his staff had yet to discuss whether Meyer would still be considered. He reportedly was arrested on charges of resisting an officer and disturbing the peace, and released on his own recognizance.

Meyer, an aspiring journalist, was "nominally affiliated" with the campus Jewish group, Kaiser-Blueth said. He is also a contributing writer for the campus Jewish newspaper, The Shpiel.

Kaiser-Blueth said Hillel was trying to reach out to Meyer, but was having little luck reaching him.

"CNN is a little more pressing than the local Hillel here," Kaiser-Blueth said.

Christian Holidays Erased From NY School District Calendar, Judaic Holidays Listed


Parents challenge calendar's 'political correctness'

School calendar omits Christian holidays; non-Christian included by name

By John Sullivan

Times Herald-Record
September 14, 2007

Several Monroe-Woodbury School District parents say they are offended by a school calendar that marks non-Christian holidays by name but delineates Christian holidays, including Good Friday, Christmas and Easter, with only "schools closed."

"There have been a lot of people in my neighborhood who have been talking about this," said Valerie Tocyloski, co-president of the North Main Elementary School PTA. "If you're going to write 'Rosh Hashana' and 'Yom Kippur,' where's 'Christmas'?"

The calendar actually only identifies the religious holidays of Rosh Hashana and Passover. No other religious or cultural holidays are mentioned.

Tocyloski said the calendar, which arrived just before the Rosh Hashana holiday, was marked in the same way last year, "but for whatever reason, the issue is bigger this year."

Heads of PTAs at other schools in the district said they, too, have received numerous calls and plan to bring up the issue with Superintendent Joe DiLorenzo.

One of the most vocal parents is Monroe resident Frank Borowski, who said he asked DiLorenzo to send home letters to district residents that explain the omitted holidays as well as the district's position.

DiLorenzo could not be reached yesterday because district offices were closed for Rosh Hashana.

Deputy Superintendent James Rathbun acknowledged that mistakes were made in the calendar, but he said they were not done so intentionally.

"I can assure you that there was no intent to slight any religious group," he said.

The district failed to properly edit the calendar, which was produced at BOCES, he said. BOCES officials could not be immediately reached yesterday.

Rathbun said that reprinting the calendar would unlikely be palatable to taxpayers, who must foot the cost. He was uncertain how the district would address the issue.

School board President Jon Huberth said the district will look more carefully at the calendar next year.

"When you run an organization as big as ours, there's going to be some oversights and mistakes," he said.

Borowski, a Roman Catholic who attends Mass every Sunday, said he is dissatisfied with the district's response.

He wants the superintendent to either write a letter for the district Web site or to reprint the calendars with the omitted holidays included.

"Most times I say, 'What's wrong with these people (who bring up issues of political correctness)?'" he said.

"But sometimes something hits you in a certain way, and you feel like you have to do something."

P.C. flaps in schools
Warwick 2006: Students rally against the school's decision to remove its traditional Christmas Tree - renamed the "Spirit Tree" to be politically correct.

It was preceded by a flap over a Jewish parent's request to avoid having Santa Claus at a PTA event. The name of the event was changed from "Breakfast with Santa" to "Winter Wonderland Breakfast."

Goshen 2005: A parent demands that tribal masks made by students in art class be taken down because they resemble the devil.

Around the same time, Middle School Assistant Principal Kent Maslin's "joyous winter season" greeting at a holiday concert prompts angry letters to the editor of a local weekly newspaper.

Student Presses John Kerry on Skull and Bones, Tazered by Cops

This story has been circulating in the news and on the internet, usually framed as a matter of politics or controversy related to the 2004 presidential election. Indeed, a student asks Kerry, speaking at The University of Florida, why he conceded the 2004 election to George Bush so quickly when there was evidence of improprieties in the election. But if you watch the video you will see that the student then mentions Kerry's membership in the secret society, Skull and Bones, and that the microphone is cut off precisely at this point and he is then forced to the back of the room and eventually, apparently, tazered.

As this is taking place John Kerry makes a joke about the student "swearing him in as president."

This seems to be a revelation of the method event which presents a brief flash message: pain awaits those who pry too deeply into secret society business. The establishment media's suggestive message to the subconscious about "annoying" people who ask "strange questions" is patent:
"So he got tazed for asking John Kerry a strange question about the 2004 presidential election. Hmmn. You do the math on that one."

Bush Nominates Kol Nidre Upholding Talmudist for Attorney General

Watch this guy sail through Congress. Will he be sworn in with his hand on the lying Talmud?

President Bush nominated an Orthodox Jew to be U.S. attorney general.


Michael Mukasey, a retired federal judge from New York, is a conservative who has criticized Bush administration policies that have kept detainees from consulting with lawyers.

Democrats have praised Mukasey, and his selection represents a shift from Bush's combative defense of the most recent attorney general, Alberto Gonzales, who resigned last month.

Mukasey's Jewishness became an issue when a defendant in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing filed a motion to remove the judge, arguing that his allegiances to fellow Jews and Israel would create a bias against Muslim defendants. The motion was dismissed as "utterly irrelevant."

Mukasey's wife, Susan, is a former headmistress of the Ramaz Lower School, an Orthodox Jewish school in New York City.

If confirmed, Mukasey would be the second Jewish attorney general. The first, Ed Levi, served under President Ford.

http://www.jta.org/cgi-bin/iowa/breaking/104180.html


Mukasey gave a lecture on the Kol Nidre in September of 2004:

Sun, Sep 19, 3 pm, $35

KOL NIDRE THROUGH THE AGES — Concert

This program explores the music and meaning of the holiest prayer in the Jewish liturgy, the Kol Nidre. Recited on the eve of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement, observed this year on September 25), the Kol Nidre has inspired numerous musical settings and instrumental compositions ... The Honorable MICHAEL B. MUKASEY, U.S. District Court Chief Judge, provides the legal perspective ... Although it carries tremendous emotional power, the Kol Nidre is essentially a legal text that absolves Jews of promises they may have made during the previous year.

http://www.92y.org/content/celebrate_350_releases.asp


The above description of the Kol Nidre (all vows) declaration is more forthcoming than usual, but it is still not correct. The Kol Nidre also "absolves" Judaics of all future vows they will make in the upcoming year.

Americans should have serious concerns about Bush's appointee, a man whose "religion" grants him permission to take an oath that he has no intention of upholding.

If Mukasey is approved by the Congress he will be sworn into office by taking the following oath:

"I (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

But the Kol Nidre declaration that Mukasey, as a pious Orthodox Judaic, will recite on Yom Kippur this Friday evening, September 21, 2007, will "absolve" him from the responsibility of upholding his oath of office and indeed, any promise he makes at all for the entire year.

Here is the Kol Nidre declaration (in English) that Mukasey along with all of his fellow Orthodox Judaics will recite this Friday:

"All vows, obligations, oaths, and anathemas, whether called 'ḳonam,' 'ḳonas,' or by any other name, which we may vow, or swear, or pledge, or whereby we may be bound, from this Day of Atonement until the next (whose happy coming we await), we do repent. May they be deemed absolved, forgiven, annulled, and void, and made of no effect; they shall not bind us nor have power over us. The vows shall not be reckoned vows; the obligations shall not be obligatory; nor the oaths be oaths."

Now, it is common to hear the excuse made that this declaration was created as a reaction to forced conversions in medieval Europe. This is patently false. The Encyclopedia Judaica finds the Kol Nidre existing before the eighth century:

The first reference to Kol Nidrei as a collective declaration is found in the responsa of the Babylonian geonim (beginning in the eighth century). It is stated that Kol Nidrei was familiar to them from "other lands ... (Encyclopedia Judaica, "Kol Nidrei")

However, the Talmudic precedent for the Kol Nidre dates from the early centuries A.D.:

And he who desires that none of his vows made during the year shall be valid, let him stand at the beginning of the year and declare, 'Every vow which I may make in the future shall be null.1 [HIS VOWS ARE THEN INVALID,] PROVIDING THAT HE REMEMBERS THIS AT THE TIME OF THE VOW. (Soncino Babylonian Talmud, Nedarim 23b)

How does the Kol Nidre square with the oath that all federal employees must take supplied above?

How does the Kol Nidre of these "elder brothers in the faith" of the Vatican prelates square with God's law:

You shall not lie, neither shall any man deceive his neighbour. Thou shalt not swear falsely by my name ... (Leviticus 19;11,12)


The answer, quite simply, is that it doesn't. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

Amalek, Haman, and Christians

The story of the book of Esther takes place centuries before Christ and the cross but time is no obstacle to the rabbis:

"..let me return to the term "abomination" and the history of it's use by Jews as a means of referring ... to the cross. The earliest instance I have been able to find occurs in the late midrashic work known as Pirkei de-Rabbi Eliezer (The Chapters of Rabbi Eliezer), which, as noted earlier, was evidently composed in eighth century Palestine. As we have seen, the work's author implicitly attempts, in retelling the story of Purim, to solve one of the thorniest problems in the exegesis of the book of Esther: Why did Mordecai refuse to bow down to Haman? According to Pirkei de-Rabbi Eliezer, Haman "had an 'image' [tzelem] embroidered on his garment, and anyone who bowed down to Haman bowed also to the 'abomination' [to'eva] which he had made. Mordecai saw this and did not consent to bow down to his 'disgusting thing' [shikutzo], as it is said, 'But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence.'" The author of this late midrash transforms Haman into a Christian bishop who proudly wears upon his chest the sign of the cross, referred to by the uncomplimentary trinity of Hebrew terms--tzelem [image], to'eva [abomination], shikutz [disgusting]. And although the midrashic author apparently resided in Umayyad Palestine, he nonetheless felt the need to link the ancient arch-enemy of the Jewish people with the central symbol of Christianity.

This is actually less anomalous than it might first appear ... (Reckless Rites, pp.157-158, Elliot Horowitz, Princeton University Press)


This puts the ... abominable notions, "Judeo-Christian tradition" and "elder brothers in the faith" in a rather clearer perspective, does it not?

Amalek, Haman, Purim and Saddam Hussein

Now I will allow an Israeli to tell the story from his perspective:

This War is for Us

by Ariel Natan Pasko

Arutz Sheva

March, 26 2003

Stop and think for a moment: the last Gulf War in 1991 ended erev - just before - Purim. This Gulf War began motzei - just after - Shushan Purim. Get the picture?


Of course this war against Iraq and Saddam Hussein is for us ...

... this war is for us - i.e., the Jews and Israel. Chazal - our sages - throughout the ages have explained the Torah, telling us that everything that happens in the world is for the benefit of the Jewish People.

Simply put another way, if all the world is a stage, then the Jews - and especially those in the Land of Israel - are the lead actors on the stage of history, and the goyim - the nations, i.e. the gentiles - have supporting roles, while the evil-doers are props and background scenery. As our tradition states, G-D - the great playwright - created the world for the sake of the Jewish People, and it is our responsibility to implement the Torah - absolute morality and the blueprint of creation - in it.

Stop and think for a moment: the last Gulf War in 1991 ended erev - just before - Purim. This Gulf War began motzei - just after - Shushan Purim. Get the picture? In between, "The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honor." (Book of Esther 8:16)

Read the Purim story in Megilat Esther again, it is a rags to riches story on a national scale. Haman, the proto-typical anti-Semite, plans mass murder of the Jews and in the end pays with his life, the life of his ten sons - all hanged - and the Jews kill 75, 800 members of the anti-Semitic - i.e. Nazi - party of the time.

... As I said earlier, of course this war is for the Jews and Israel, and instead of hiding from the accusation, or crying, "anti-Semitic slur", we should gratefully acknowledge what the Master of the Universe is doing to our enemies for us. Saddam Hussein, Yasser Arafat, Bashar Assad, Osama Bin-Laden, and the other dictators, terrorists and mullahs of the region, are the modern day Hamans ...

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/2125


Perhaps this Israeli's excitement with wars against "modern day Hamans" coinciding with Purim, the holiday commemorating the Jews' vengeance against Haman, can be understood in light of Judaic messianic prophesy:

"But withal redemption will not be complete until Amalek will be exterminated, for against Amalek the oath was taken that “the Lord will have war against Amalek from generation to generation” (Ex. XVII,16). (Soncino Zohar, Bereshith, Folio 25b)

Amalek, Haman, Ahmadinejad and Reincarnation

In the Book of Esther, the villain, Haman, is the minster of the King of Persia which is today called Iran. Here we see that the rabbis identify Haman as a direct descendant of Amalek, the tribe which the rabbis preach must be exterminated before the Judaic "redemption" can take place.

Shabbat Zakhor: (Heb. rvkz TYQ; "Sabbath of Remembrance"), the second of the four special Sabbaths. It is the Sabbath before Purim. The name derives from the additional Torah portion read from Deuteronomy 25:17–19 whose theme is the duty "to remember" what Amalek did to Israel. The traditional belief is that Haman the Agagite was a direct descendant of Agag, the king of the Amalekites (e.g., I Sam. 15:9ff.). (Encyclopedia Judaica, "Sabbaths, Special")

The above mentioned Shabbat Zakhor is the Judaic Sabbath that falls before Purim. It is mandatory for all Orthodox Judaics to hear the reading of the Parshat Zachor on this day each year when they are reminded to make war against "Amalek," directly connected with Haman, for eternity:


"... the Sages have prescribed the public reading of [Parshat Zachor] once every year, on the Shabbat which precedes Purim - so that the 'wiping-out' of Amalek might be adjacent to the 'wiping-out' of Haman, the latter being a descendant of Amalek."

http://www.ou.org/chagim/fourshabbatot/zachor.htm

In the last blog entry it was shown that Amalek was actually completely eradicated 500 years before Christ (1st Chronicles 4;43) by the true Israelites but that the rabbis have throughout history falsely labeled individuals and groups as "Amalek" and subject to extermination. The rabbinic doctrine of reincarnation (gilgul) was also briefly mentioned.

... metempsychosis [reincarnation] is taken for granted in the Kabbalah from its first literary expression in the Sefer ha-Bahir (published in late 12th century) ... From the period of the Zohar on, the term gilgul became prevalent in Hebrew literature and began to appear in philosophic works as well. (Encyclopedia Judaica, "Gilgul")

Let's look at a few recent examples of Judaic attempts to conflate the current President of Iran with Haman from the Book of Esther:

"There’s more than passing irony in the fact that the most infamous anti-Semite of antiquity, the hater whose downfall Jews celebrate on Purim, was a prominent official of an empire centered in what’s now Iran.

Like the Persian royal adviser Haman, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ..." ("Haman, Ahmadinejad, and us," Rabbi Avi Shafran, Jewish Standard, March 9, 2006)

http://www.jstandard.com/articles/730/1/Haman,-Ahmadinejad,-and-us

There is no end to the amount of homilies that rabbis will spin out of the story of Purim. Pending what’s in the New York Times that week, Vashti, Esther and Mordechai all become transformed into real-life characters. Usually this sermonic game ends up with someone asking, “So, rabbi, who is today’s Haman?” Usually this crude question engenders an equally crude but far more dangerous political answer. God knows how many people have been labeled Haman who, in other contexts, would be seen as a Mordechai. Rarely do we actually have a real breathing Haman standing right before our eyes.

This year, however, I am sad to say, but it seems there is such a man, the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. ("Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: The New Haman," Rabbi Eliyahu Stern, Virtual Talmud, February 27, 2007)

http://blog.beliefnet.com/virtualtalmud/2007/02/mahmuod-ahmadinejad-new-haman.html


"Help stamp out a modern day Haman"

http://www.babaganewz.com/teachers/pdfs/6701lesson.pdf

And here we see an Israeli comic which openly depicts Ahmadinejad as the reincarnation of Haman and suggests that "the civilized world" has a responsibility to destroy him.


Yup. Ahmadinejad, the modern reincarnation of Haman of Persia is both a test for the civilized world and a trial for Israel. The future is looking more and more like the past. As the old curse goes: "May you live in interesting times!"

...And a Happy Purim to us all.


http://drybonesblog.blogspot.com/2007/03/purim-joke.html

Don't get caught up in the delusional Judaic attempt to force their own "redemption" by destroying their perceived ancient enemy whom they believe to be reincarnated in the President of Iran.

More on Amalek

In the last blog entry we learned that the rabbis teach that Judaics bring about their "redemption" through their own actions and that the Judaic "redemption" cannot fully take place until the Tikkun of the complete extermination of Amalek.

The Jewish Encyclopedia further clarifies this concept:

... the rabbis say: "Never will the throne of God—the Lord of Truth, Justice, and Love—be fully established until the seed of Amalek—the principle of hatred and wrongdoing—be destroyed forever (Pesiḳ., l.c., and Targ. Yer. I. and II. to Ex. l.c.). Henceforth "Amalek" became the popular term for Jew-hater. (Jewish Encyclopedia, "Amalek")

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=1351&letter=A&search=amalek


We will get back to that thought on "Amalek" becoming "a popular term for 'Jew'-hater" but now that we know of the rabbinic mandate to exterminate Amalek as a condition for Judaic "redemption," we need to identify who exactly Amalek is. Who is it that the rabbis say it's necessary to exterminate.

Biblical Scripture speaks of Amalek as a tribe that waged war with the Israelites of whom God said, "I will destroy the memory of Amalec from under heaven" and of whom Moses wrote, "...the hand of the throne of the Lord, and the war of the Lord shall be against Amalec, from generation to generation." (Exodus 17;14-16) Needless to say, this is a far cry from Christ's teaching to love one's enemies, but such was the state of things prior to the true redemption through Christ's sacrifice on the cross.

But regarding the extermination of Amalek, Scripture indeed records that Amalek was completely destroyed to the last man in 1 Chronicles, 4;43, "And they slew the remnant of the Amalecites, who had been able to escape, and they dwelt there in their stead unto this day." This is circa 500 B.C.

Now, we have seen the quotation from the Zohar which dates circa 1300 A.D. which mandates the extermination of Amalek as a condition for Judaic redemption, but we have also seen from the Bible that Amalek was completely exterminated at the time of King David, more than 500 years before Christ. Therefore God's curse against Amalek has had no valid application for over 2500 years. Yet, the rabbis continue to wage war against foes they brand as "Amalek" 2500 years after Amalek was completely wiped out by true Israel.

There are many things to learn about the rabbinic tradition from this example. First, the fact that Amalek has been nothing but a memory for 2500 years doesn't discourage the rabbis from misappropriating and resuscitating the curse against Amalek for their purposes. Certainly, the usefulness of a curse as harsh as that placed upon Amalek--complete extermination under divine mandate--is stuff the rabbis salivate for. So, as usual, the rabbis turn Scripture upside down, in this case by drudging up a curse which Scripture itself put to rest 2500 years ago.

Secondly, we can see what machinations impatience inspires while waiting for over 1000 years for a "redemption" that will never come. The rabbis figure that since the "redemption" has not yet occurred, it must be because Amalek has not been completely wiped out yet, even though Scripture states quite plainly that Amalek was completely wiped out circa 500 B.C.

Thirdly, a vengeful, warlike people who believe in reincarnation are likely to see ancient enemies in populations presently living. The rabbis do preach reincarnation (gilgul) and they do preach eternal vigilance and vengeance against "Amalek."

Getting back to the rabbis' misapplication of "Amalek" and it's associated curse of annihilation upon those deemed "'Jew'-haters," which in reality most often means someone that the rabbis hate. Many individuals and populations have been misidentified by the rabbis and Judaic organizations as "Amalek" and slated for extermination throughout history. Some examples, in no particular order, are Rome, Christendom, Armenians, Germans, Arabs, Palestinians, revisionist historians, and noteworthy today, Persians/Iranians.

There is a rabbinic myth which identifies Haman from the book of Esther as a descendant of Amalek. This Purimspiel creates a false association between Amalek and people of Persian descent as the story of the Book of Esther takes place in Persia, today's Iran, which Zionist warmongers have been pushing to attack unprovoked for several years now. To those of a Kabbalistic bent, Iranian President Ahmadinejad is viewed as the reincarnation of Haman who was mythologized as a descendant of Amalek.

For further information on the Judaic misuse of the epithet, "Amalek," watch the following video:

Judaic "Redemption" Comes Through Extermination of "Amalek"

Redemption is no more than the external manifestation of the inner state of tikkun ("restitution") which depends on the deeds of Israel and a realization of the way of life which the Kabbalah preaches. The fact of tikkun is not something which depends on a miracle, but rather on human action ... [the Messiah's] coming is conditional upon the accomplishment of the task of Israel in the "tikkun of the world." According to this latter view, there is a human and historical preparation for redemption and the Messiah will come automatically if this preparation is completed. This belief is widespread among the disciples of Isaac Luria, and it follows logically from the basic assumptions of Lurianic Kabbalah. (Encyclopedia Judaica, "Redemption")

The main concern of Lurianic Kabbalah, as has been mentioned, is with the details of the process of tikkun ... certain concluding actions have been reserved for man. These are the ultimate aim of creation, and the completion of tikkun, which is synonymous with the redemption, depends on man's performing them. (Encyclopedia Judaica, "Kabbalah")

Now that we know that Kabbalism maintains that Judaics themselves bring about their own redemption (laying bare the self-worship of Judaism), it's interesting to note what conditions must be fulfilled according to Kabbalah in order for "redemption" to take place:

"But withal redemption will not be complete until Amalek will be exterminated, for against Amalek the oath was taken that “the Lord will have war against Amalek from generation to generation” (Ex. XVII,16). (Soncino Zohar, Bereshith, Folio 25b)


As a side note, Daniel Matt's recently published English translation of the Zohar has omitted this genocidal prophesy completely without even a footnote explaining it's absence. I can't imagine why. In fact, folios 22b through 29a are completely missing. It must have been the Christian censors! Ha! I shall be interested to see if Matt censors Zohar III 282a (which places Jesus next to Muhammad amid worms, dung, dead dogs and assess) from a forthcoming volume of his English translated Zohar.

Benedict XVI says that Judaic anticipation of "the Messiah" is not in vain. For the good of all of those unfortunate to be categorized as "Amalek" by the rabbis I wish that he would cease encouraging those psychopaths.

And for all of those who have been duped into accepting the Neturei Karta, Satmar and other anti-Zionist "Torah-true" Hasidim as allies, I would let you in on the fact that the Zohar quoted above is the "Torah" that they are true to.

More on Benedict's Holocaust Prostration, Repentance

The symbolism in the pope's words and behavior is patent:
Pope Benedict XVI stood silently yesterday before a large stone monument to Austrian Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust ... With Austria's chief rabbi, Paul Chaim Eisenberg, at his side, the pontiff meditated and then heard the rabbi's prayer. He bowed twice before shaking hands with several elderly representatives of the Jewish community.

Speaking earlier to reporters accompanying him on the papal flight from Rome, Pope Benedict said he wanted to show "our sadness, our repentance" for the Holocaust and "our friendship with our Jewish brothers." The pope's use of the word repentance was especially important, because it recognizes guilt and responsibility, something that Jewish leaders have been seeking. ("Pope offers 'repentance' to Austrian Jews," Tracy Wilkinson, Baltimore Sun September 8, 2007)

Counter The Judaic Lobby's Attack on CNN

CNN Comes Under Unprecedented Attack

Forward

Nathan Guttman | Wed. Sep 05, 2007

Washington - A CNN documentary about religious extremists has prompted an unprecedented outcry from the organized Jewish community, including a call to advertisers to pressure the network.

The three-episode special, “God’s Warriors,” by CNN’s chief international correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, is being characterized by Jewish groups as equating Jewish extremists in West Bank settlements with Muslim jihadists. The program is also accused of containing numerous factual errors.

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, which represents more than 50 national Jewish organizations, convened a special discussion with its members following the airing of the program last month, and has urged them to take up the issue with companies that have bought advertising slots during the show.

In the past, there have been widespread complaints about the media’s treatment of Israel, but this appears to be the first time that so many organizations have come together in opposition to a single media outlet.

“This was not an average show,” said Jennifer Laszlo-Mizrahi, founder of The Israel Project. “CNN bought full-page ads promoting the show and ran it on prime time. The perspective the show left the viewers with is that Israel doesn’t want peace and that Israel’s friends in the United States don’t want peace.” The Israel Project, a group focused on providing information to the press and the public about Israel, broke a five-year tradition of not reacting to media reports on Israel and put out a press release about the Amanpour show, detailing Israel’s efforts to promote peace in the region.

“The program definitely has a great damage potential because of the people who watch CNN,” Laszlo-Mizrahi added, pointing to the fact that foreign officials and decision makers tend to view CNN as an important news source.

I watched most of the CNN series, "God's Warriors" and while I thought it was only a brief introduction at best and that it failed to make some distinctions I found it to be a very important and very timely journalistic work. I was quite pleased that the Judaic hand in the "Christian Zionist" movement was exposed and that "Christian Zionism" wasn't conflated with traditional Christianity. It also presented very real and largely unreported Judaic terrorists and their terrorist acts before a large audience most of whom are unlikely to have known of these things.

On the whole I found "God's Warriors" to be imperfect but a definite move towards the type of journalism that we should expect from anyone who presumes to call him/herself a journalist, timely and relevant, particularly now given the impending Zionist assault on Iran. Viewers received a brief glimpse inside the minds of the promoters of messianic Zionist warmongering insanity.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that Judaic power organizations are bringing their full weight down on CNN for airing this documentary. I hope that people will take the time to contact CNN and voice their support for this type of journalism and hopes that they will build on this program offering more continually improving, relevant, courageous journalism of this nature in the future. Don't allow Judaic groups to impose their tyrannical minority view on our airwaves. If you allow their voice to be heard over yours that is what you should expect.

Massive ZioCon Propaganda Campaign Scheduled for Next Week


Bush Plans War On Iran


By Prof. Marjorie Cohn

07 September, 2007
Global Research

The Sunday Times of London is reporting that the Pentagon has plans for three days of massive air strikes against 1,200 targets in Iran. Last week, Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, told a meeting of The National Interest, a conservative foreign policy journal, that the military did not intend to carry out "pinprick strikes" against Iranian nuclear facilities. He said, "They're about taking out the entire Iranian military."

Bush has already set the wheels in motion. With Rovian timing, Alberto Gonzales' resignation was sandwiched between two Bush screeds - one aimed at ensuring Congress scares up $50 billion more for the occupation of Iraq, the other designed to scare us into supporting war on Iran. As Gonzales rides off into the sunset, the significant questions are who will take his place and how that choice will facilitate Bush's occupation of Iraq and attack on Iran.

One name that's been floated for Bush's third attorney general is Joe Lieberman, the "independent" senator from Connecticut [Michael Chertoff, another friend of Chabad Lubavitch and police-state advocate, has also been mentioned]. Lieberman, who advocates the use of military force against Iran, was the only person Bush quoted in his August 28 speech to the American Legion. Bush called Iran "the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism" and pledged to "confront Tehran's murderous activities."

Gonzales greased the Bush/Cheney wheels for torturing in violation of the Geneva Conventions, illegally spying on Americans, and purging disloyal Bushies.

Similarly, Lieberman would ensure the Justice Department mounts a vigorous defense of a war of aggression against Iran. And Bush would get a two-fer: Connecticut's Republican governor would appoint a Republican to fill Lieberman's seat, returning control of the Senate to the GOP. A Republican-controlled Senate would direct the agenda, thereby furthering the Bush/Cheney plan.

Lieberman is closely affiliated with American Israeli Public Affairs Committee. "AIPAC leverages its power by an alliance with the Christian Right, which has adopted a bizarre ideology of 'Christian Zionism,'" according to University of Michigan professor Juan Cole. "It holds that the sooner the Palestinians are ethnically cleansed, the sooner Christ will come back. Without millions of these Christian Zionist allies," Cole added, "AIPAC would be much less influential and effective."

During the 2004 election, a 100% "AIPAC voting record" was Lieberman's litmus test for an acceptable presidential candidate. As the House of Representatives was on the verge of passing a resolution that would've required Bush to consult Congress before attacking Iran, the AIPAC lobby stopped it in its tracks.

Bush's WMD-hyping against Iran is déja vu in the run-up to Operation Iraqi Disaster, where he played loose and fast with the truth about Iraq 's alleged WMDs. His statement that a nuclear Iran could put the region "under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust" conjures up his images of a "mushroom cloud" in the hype-up to Iraq.

How inconvenient for Bush that the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) just found Iran 's uranium enrichment program is operating well below capacity and is nowhere near producing significant amounts of nuclear fuel. The IAEA report says Iran "has been providing the agency with access to declared nuclear materials, and has provided the required nuclear material accountancy reports in connection with declared nuclear material and facilities."

Iran and IAEA agreed on a plan with a step-by-step timetable of cooperation to settle unresolved issues. The agreement said there were "no other remaining issues and ambiguities regarding Iran 's past nuclear program and activities," and characterized the accord as "a significant step forward."

"This is the first time Iran is ready to discuss all the outstanding issues which triggered the crisis in confidence," said IAEA director general Mohamed ElBaradei. "I'm clear at this stage you need to give Iran a chance to prove its stated goodwill. Sanctions alone, I know for sure, are not going to lead to a durable solution".

In 2003, when Dr. ElBaradei reported there was no evidence that Iraq was reconstituting its nuclear program, the White House was not pleased. And as Saddam Hussein became more cooperative with the weapons inspector, Bush became "infuriated," according to Bob Woodward.

Bush's vow, "We will confront this danger before it is too late," is the Iran incarnation of his illegal preemptive war doctrine, which he inaugurated in Iraq. In a clear signal he is seeking regime change in Iran, Bush called for "an Iran whose government is accountable to its people, instead of leaders who promote terror and pursue the technology that could be used to develop nuclear weapons."

Barnett Rubin reported on Global Affairs blog that one of the leading neo-conservative institutions has "instructions" from Dick Cheney's office to "roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day; it will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects. It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don't think they'll ever get majority support for this - they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is 'plenty.'"

Bush/Cheney created the White House Iraq Group (WHIG) to lead a propaganda campaign to bolster public support for war with Iraq. The White House decided to wait until after Labor Day of 2002 to kick off WHIG's mission.
Chief of staff Andrew Card explained, "From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August." Five years later, they're marketing a new and even more dangerous product - war with Iran. British military historian Corelli Barnett says "an attack on Iran would effectively launch World War III."

Our military spending has reached $1 billion every 2-1/2 days and we are borrowing $2-1/2 billion per day. Bush is mortgaging our children’s future security and wealth. We have lost more than 3,700 soldiers in Iraq and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have died.

We have already seen how easily Congress caves in to AIPAC. It's up to the people. As Noam Chomsky said, "The most effective barrier to a White House decision to launch a war [on Iran] is the kind of organized popular opposition that frightened the political-military leadership enough in 1968 that they were reluctant to send more troops to Vietnam."

Benedict Once Again Bows to Holocaustolatry, Repents

Benedict XVI bows to the 'Holocaust' memorial at Judenplatz in Vienna, Austria.

VIENNA, Sept. 7 — Pope Benedict XVI confronted Friday the shadows of Europe’s past, praying at a Holocaust memorial here, as he spoke with worry about its future. Europe, he said, may extinguish itself, in numbers and spirit, if it embraces abortion and rejects Christianity, which he said “profoundly shaped the continent.”

“It should be everyone’s concern to ensure that the day will never come when only its stones speak of Christianity,” the pope said, at the start of a three-day visit here. “An Austria without a vibrant Christian faith would no longer be Austria.”

... Even as [Benedict XVI] spoke about the Christian roots of Europe, he acknowledged the role — and suffering — of Jews on the Continent. He told reporters in Italian on his plane before leaving Rome that his trip was aimed partly at showing “our sadness, our repentance and also our friendship with our Jewish brothers.” (Ian Fisher, "Pope Vigorously Defends Catholicism in Austria and Raises Concerns on Europe’s Future," New York Times, Sept 8, 2007)

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/08/world/europe/08pope.html?em&ex=1189396800&en=b76c92ee67599607&ei=5087%0A


If Benedict truly wants to revive Christianity in Europe and stimulate the birthrate among European Christians perhaps he might try laying off the Holocaust guilt for a bit to see how that might help. Here he is once again sprinkling holy water on the Weisenthal/Spielberg/Isaacesque image of Austrian Christians as monsters who must repent for cosmic crimes committed against "God's Chosen People"--directly associating such cosmic crimes with Christendom--and simultaneously chastising Europeans for disassociating themselves with Christianity and not having children? Has it occurred to him that 40 years of hammering on Christianity as a "teaching of contempt" which directly led to the "modern Golgaltha" of Auschwitz has perhaps turned Austrians away from the Christian tradition? Not to mention Austria's heinously corrupt clergy.

If "reviving Christianity in Europe" means forever bowing to Holocaust idols, placing Auschwitz alongside or above Calvary and repenting for the crimes of the Nazis while being ruled by Judaizing homo bishops I recommend that Europeans withhold all support, or better yet, run the other way.

On the other hand, I would love to see a genuine revival of Christendom in Europe but I would hope that the children produced by such a revival would not be conscripted as canon fodder in messianic Zionist crusades against Arab "Amalek" (Zohar 1;25b).

Benedict on St. Gregory of Nyssa

The latest installment in Benedict XVI's series of talks on the Church Fathers focuses on St. Gregory of Nyssa:

In the last few catecheses I spoke about two great doctors of the Church of the fourth century, Basil and Gregory Nazianzen, bishop of Cappadocia, in present-day Turkey. Today we add a third, Basil's brother, St. Gregory of Nyssa, who showed himself to be a man of meditative character, with a great capacity for reflection, and a vivacious intellect, open to the culture of his time. He showed himself in this way to be an original and deep thinker in Christian history ...

Especially after Basil's death, almost garnering his spiritual legacy, Gregory cooperated in the triumph of orthodoxy. He participated in various synods; he tried to settle divisions between the Churches; he took an active part in the Church's reorganization; and, as "a pillar of orthodoxy," he was a protagonist at the Council of Constantinople in 381, which defined the divinity of the Holy Spirit. (Benedict XVI, "On St. Gregory of Nyssa: A Pillar of Orthodoxy," August 29, 2007)

Full lecture:
http://www.zenit.org/article-20361?l=english

It is true, St. Gregory of Nyssa was indeed a pillar of orthodoxy, and given that Benedict says as much himself, it's worth examining what this pillar of orthodoxy, St. Gregory of Nyssa wrote of the people who Benedict calls his "elder brothers in the faith" with whom Christians "have a common mission."

The Lawgiver of our life has enjoined upon us one single hatred. I mean, that of the Serpent: for no other purpose has He bidden us exercise this faculty of hatred, but as a resource against wickedness. "I will put enmity," He says, "between you and him." Since wickedness is a complicated and multifarious thing, the Word allegorizes it by the Serpent, the dense array of whose scales is symbolic of this multiformity of evil. And we by working the will of our Adversary make an alliance with this serpent, and so turn this hatred against one another, and perhaps not against ourselves alone, but against Him Who gave the commandment; for He says, "You shall love your neighbour and hate thine enemy," commanding us to hold the foe to our humanity as our only enemy, and declaring that all who share that humanity are the neighbours of each one of us. But this gross-hearted age has disunited us from our neighbour, and has made us welcome the serpent, and revel in his spotted scales.

I affirm, then, that it is a lawful thing to hate God's enemies, and that this kind of hatred is pleasing to our Lord: and by God's enemies I mean those who deny the glory of our Lord, be they Jews, or downright idolaters, or those who through Arius' teaching idolize the creature, and so adopt the error of the Jews. (St. Gregory of Nyssa, Letter 17)

Now, I do not seize upon this statement by St. Gregory, which is typical to all of the Church Fathers, in an effort to stir up temporal animosity any more than St. Gregory intended to do so, but to demonstrate how double-minded it is of Benedict to on the one hand laud the orthodoxy of the Church Fathers who singularly identified Judaic practices, beliefs and those who uphold them as antithetical and inimical to Christianity, and on the other hand laud the "Jews" who today uphold these same beliefs and practices so opposed by the Church Fathers as our "elder brothers in the faith;" people with whom Christians "have a common mission."

Are they our enemies or our allies? They cannot be both. So, either Benedict or the Church Doctor Gregory of Nyssa and all of the Church Fathers are wrong here. I side with the Church Fathers.

Judaic beliefs have only become more hostile towards Christianity and Christians since St. Gregory's time. For the Vatican to make such a 180 degree turnaround from the position of the Church Fathers on this matter reflects a change on their part only and a most suspicious change at that.
