Catholic.org Publishes Hagiography for Rabbi of Racial-Supremacist Genocidal Anti-Christ Messianic Judaism

Chabad Lubavitch is a sect of Judaism which embodies all of the worst elements of genocidal, racial-supremacist, anti-Christ, messianic Judaism to the most extreme degree, and here we have a remarkable hagiography for a Chabad black hat couched within Orwellian accolades for the Chabad hate organization penned by a "Hebrew Catholic" and published by a popular nominal Catholic website. This is the Chabad sect which is lobbying and subverting governments and religious institutions around the world, spreading the phony "Noahide Laws" according to which true Christians should be punished for "idolatry" by decapitation HERE.

It's outrageous, of course, but not nearly as outrageous as the Pope inviting one of the most prominent members of this hate group, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, to speak at the Vatican as he did in 2002 HERE and 2005 HERE, or to invite a rabbi devotee of Chabad's dead "messiah" Menachem Schneerson to teach at a synod of bishops as he did HERE and HERE.

The "Association of Hebrew Catholics," which the author of this profoundly insane article belongs to, is stamped kosher by bishops Raymond Burke, Carl Mengeling and John Paul II.

Hebrew Catholic Honors Rabbi Holtzburg, Killed in Mumbai

By Athol Bloomer

Catholic Online (www.catholic.org)

As a Catholic Jew I felt the pain that all Jews are feeling at this time. It may be strange but there is a sense in which Jews share in the joys and sufferings of all other Jews.

St. Louis, Mo. (Catholic Online) - As I write this here in the Hebrew Catholic Center in St Louis I am still in shock about the murder of the young Chabad Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzburg and his wife Rivka Holtzburg. In recent months I have been following the terrible persecution and killing of Christians in India by Hindu fundamentalists. The media hardly seems to mention what is happening. Now we see such violent Islamist terror attacks in Mumbai (or Bombay as most of us call it).

I learned on Saturday that one of the places attacked was the Nariman Chabad House in Mumbai. Then, we heard of the little two year old son of the Holtlzbergs being safe but that his trousers were soaked in blood. Then a Carmelite nun of Jewish ancestry sent me the news report of the death of the Rabbi and his wife. As a Catholic Jew I felt the pain that all Jews are feeling at this time. It may be strange but there is a sense in which Jews share in the joys and sufferings of all other Jews. As someone who has known many Chabad Jews and studied with Chabad Rabbis and been fed by them at Chabad Houses I felt it more keenly perhaps than some.

Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg were emissaries of the Lubavitch Chabad movement who gave up their homes and families in order to serve in far off India. They ran food programs, drug prevention programs, medical services, prison and hospital visitations and classes on Jewish learning among many other things. Now, this wonderful young couple, are dead and the world has lost two workers for the good and the light in a world growing darker.

While I didn’t know them personally I know others like them.

When I lived in Thailand I would attend the Synagogue and the Chabad House in Bangkok and I saw the dedication and commitment of the Chabad Rabbis and their families. I attend the huge Passover Seders at which everyone was welcome. They helped all in need not just religious Jews – secular Jews and non-Jews with no discrimination. Many Jewish communities around the world would have no Rabbis at all if not for the Chabad Rabbis who will go anywhere in the world to serve God and the Rebbe. For example an orthodox Jewish family I stayed with each weekend in the 1980’s assisted the Chabad in reviving the Jewish community in Tasmania that had almost died out.

They are known as the 'Black Army of the Rebbe' as they follow the teachings of the seven Rebbes of Lubavitch and especially those of their late Tzadik, Rebbe Menachem Schneersohn. A Rebbe or Tzadik is the spiritual leader of a Hasidic group who follows the way of love, joy, simplicity and mercy in worshipping God as taught by the founder of Hasidism - the Baal Shem Tov of the 17th century. The first Lubavitch Rebbe was Schneur Zalman of Liadi known as the Alter Rebbe and the author of the mystical book called “Tanya”. He took the ‘heart’ teachings of Hasidism and introduced a more intellectual approach called Chabad.

Chabad stands for Chokmah(Wisdom), Binah (Understanding) and Daat (Knowledge) which represents the Divine Face of the Divine Man in Jewish mysticism. The seventh and last Rebbe of Chabad encouraged many young people to give their lives in the service of God and Judaism by becoming emissaries (apostles) to the Jews spread throughout the world. Rabbi Holtzberg and his wife were two such young people.

I remember sitting in the 1980’s with Chabad Rabbi Finman in Melbourne Australia [who I was studying with] as he translated the Rebbe’s inspiring teachings from Yiddish into English for the whole Yeshivah. I was inspired that day as Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka were inspired by the Rebbe to give their lives to God’s service. The rebbe inspired in us a devotion to the Mashiach (Messiah). Now through the evil of others they have become Jewish martyrs and given their blood for God and the Jewish people.

I pray that their sacrifice will bring others to God and that from this tragedy will come good fruit. Let us pray for their souls and the souls of all the others lost in this terror onslaught and for their loved ones to be consoled. The Jewish custom is to say Psalms on behalf of the dead so maybe we could all say a Psalm for them too.

But Archbishop Burke is so orthodox and traditional!!!

[/sarcasm]

rev'd up said...

Don't forget Timothy Svea, formerly of the Insitute during Burke's episcopate of La Crosse, WI. Svea's bio is on the Wisconsin sex offenders list. He buggered boys and Burke covered it up, so now he's Archbishop!

Burke is now in Rome and on the fast-track for a red hat. The "holy" godfather rewards those who abide by the code of omerta, especially where pederasty is concerned, the tradition most common to Vatican prelates and their elder brothers in the faith.

you are right to call them "insane".

i saw rosalind moss on EWTN. she repudiated zionism, but now i see that her organization supports chabad, which is rabidly zionistic.

insane through and through. unstable minds are not a sign of the Holy Spirit...

our local newspaper profiled the chabad rabbi in greensboro who knew the indian chabadniks:

http://www.news-record.com/content/2008/11/28/article/local_rabbi_loses_a_friend_mentor_in_india_attacks

here is the email i sent to the rabbi and the newspaper reporter afterwards:


Rabbi Yosef,

I extend my condolences to you over the death of your friend in India.

I am so sorry that he and his wife died prematurely, before they had a chance to accept Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior.

I hope the same will not happen to you.

Sincerely,
Michael Korn

PS I hope you enjoyed the Christian literature I mailed to your home in Greensboro.

PPS Do you consider it ironic that Chabad, a leading force in the Noahide Movement to outlaw Christianity as idolatry while venerating Islam as pure monotheism, has now suffered such a grievous loss at the hands of Islamic extremists?

Maurice Pinay said...

These "Hebrew Catholics" receive no correction of their errors, save from a few fringe personalities like myself, and are in fact encouraged and promoted by high level Vatican prelates. Who is more insane? Who is really culpable?

The article in question is insane. It's author is of a neo-Frankist bent, which is to say he's attempting to conjoin the irreconcilable opposites of Christianity with Hasidism. But Benedict, Kasper and other bishops; Martin Buber boosters all of them, are doing the same thing, albeit at a more subtle level. What these people are attempting is plainly insane.

Hasidism--Orthodox Judaism--is the most backwards, pagan, tribal, perverted, racist, megalomaniacal, duplicitous, subversive, violent ideology I am aware of to exist in the history of the world. And these people, like Martin Buber, are selling it to us as a path to enlightenment in the post-Christian West--"post-Christian" because "Christianity paved the way to Auschwitz," it has "failed" and is useful only insofar as it serves as a vehicle for "Jew" worship, the transmission of the rabbis' phony "Noahide Laws" and Holocaustolatry.

It's the greatest fraud ever perpetrated, and Vatican officials are complicit in it.
