"The God Squad" Lies About Judaism and Pantheism

"... the principal teaching of the Wiccan religion is that we are one with the universe. The foundational teaching of all three Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) is that the universe is a creation of God, not a part of God." (Rabbi Marc Gellman & Msgr. Thomas Hartman, The God Squad, December 29, 2007)

In fact, Wicca is informed by the pantheistic tradition of Masonry (through Gerald Gardner and Aliester Crowley) and Masonry is informed by rabbinic Judaism with heavy emphasis on the pantheistic kabbalistic tradition.

The "God Squad" is simply repeating the cover story intended for the Goys: "Judaism is the religion of the Bible; a strict monotheistic religion which Christianity has 'sprung from'."

Utter nonsense.

Benedict & JPII Offered Mass in Front of an Obelisk

Pope Benedict XVI, flanked by Archbishop Piero Marini, celebrates Palm Sunday Mass at the foot toe the ancient Egyptian obelisk in the center of St. Peter's Square April 9, 2006.

The eight spokes (or double cross) emanating from the obelisk in St. Peter's square likely represent the eight divisions of the solar calendar: solstices, equinoxes and quarter cross days. The obelisk originated in Heliopolis, Egypt, the home of the occult Hermetic tradition which St. Augustine preached against.

"Israel" Upholds Clusterbombing of Civilian Populated Areas of Lebanon

They say the "Israel" "Defense" Force is "the most moral army in the world." Indeed, the IDF exemplifies Talmudic "morality" to a higher degree than any other military. But the Talmud does not constitute the basis for morality in Western culture, or at least, it didn't until recently. I suppose that's how they can now get away with making such a ridiculous claim.

Israel upholds use of cluster bombs

December 24, 2007

By JOSEF FEDERMAN, Associated Press Writer

JERUSALEM - The Israeli army on Monday said it will not press charges against officers who ordered the use of cluster bombs during last year's war in Lebanon, brushing off international criticism that the weapons unnecessarily put Lebanese civilians at risk.

Announcing the results of a more than year-long probe, the army said investigators determined Israel's use of cluster bombs was a "concrete military necessity" and did not violate international humanitarian law. Lebanese officials accused the army of covering up war crimes.

Cluster bombs open in flight and scatter dozens of bomblets over wide areas. The United Nations and human rights groups have accused Israel of dropping about 4 million cluster bomblets during its 34-day war against the Hezbollah guerrilla group.

They say as many as 1 million bomblets failed to explode and now endanger civilians, and earlier this year, the U.S. State Department said Israel probably misused American-made cluster bombs in civilian areas. More than 30 people have been killed by cluster bomb and land mine explosions in Lebanon since the 2006 summer [brutality].

Vatican II Kabbalist Sage, Rabbi Abraham Heschel: "I Want to Attack Their Souls"

Rabbi Abraham Heschel with Cardinal Augustin Bea

Returning to the biography of the Hasidic change agent, Rabbi Abraham Heschel (Spiritual Radical, by Edward K. Kaplan, Yale University Press). In this book is an account of an interview Rabbi Heschel gave during the time the Vatican II document Nostra Aetate, which Heschel collaborated on, was being deliberated. The interview reveals an attitude of remarkable hostility to Christians, which should come as no surprise to those knowledgeable of the rabbinic tradition. What may surprise some (but shouldn't at this point) is that such a hostile character would be invited by Vatican officials to participate in the writing of a Church council document.

First some background: In Heschel's many meetings with Vatican officials (as an agent of the American Jewish Comittee) regarding Nostra Aetate, mostly with Augustin Bea, but including a secretive meeting with Paul VI, Heschel was most adamant that the document should clearly proclaim his belief that it is unacceptable for Christians to seek the conversion of "Jews." Heschel's chutzpah in peddling this absurd idea (which consequently would undercut Christ's incarnation, evangelical mission and sacrifice) went to the extreme of appealing to the non-Biblical, relativistic, Talmudic anti-principle mipnei darchai shalom during his meeting with Paul VI.

During the deliberations, a draft of the Nostra Aetate document was leaked to the press which did not include the prohibition against converting "Jews" which Heschel desired. This infuriated Heschel, and in response he wrote an editorial published by the New York Times and Time magazine in which he proclaimed, "As I have repeatedly stated to leading personalities of the Vatican, I am ready to go to Auschwitz any time, if faced with the alternative of conversion or death."

Edward Kaplan (citing Schuster's notes on record at AJC/Paris) writes that AJC European director, Zachariah Schuster warned Heschel that this outburst had been embarrassing to their Vatican collaborators but that Heschel replied undauntedly, "I had my own private reasons for making this remark." Heschel later revealed what those private reasons were to Stern Gang terrorist, Geula Cohen in an interview which she conducted for the Israeli newspaper, Ma'ariv.

In interviewing Rabbi Abraham Heschel, Geula Cohen made reference to Heschel's hysterical "ready to go to Auschwitz" statement saying she was proud of it, but that she would have handled it differently:

"This statement of yours made me proud. Yet, I would have written it differently, saying: 'if this were the only way in which I would be permitted to live, I would have endeavored to send them [Christians] to Auschwitz.'"

Cohen relayed that Heschel was not shocked by her words, but explained that his statement was stronger than hers:

"Frankly, I assert that the statement on Auschwitz, of which you are proud, is the strongest statement possible, and it has shaken many people throughout the world."

Heshel further clarified, explaining the private reasons he earlier said he had for making the "Auschwitz" statement:

"[Christians] correctly understood that I was comparing them to the Nazis. If I had made the statement in a straightforward fashion saying 'you are Nazis,' it would have sounded ridiculous. My style of writing is by hinting, because truth is in the depths. There are those who would like to attack their bodies. I want to attack their souls. Today, there is no longer any place for religious wars as such. Today there is occasion for conversation and discussion. Do you consider the desire to discuss a sign of weakness?" (Rabbi Abraham Heschel, interviewed by Geula Cohen for Ma'ariv, January 4, 1965 as translated by AJC/Paris)

And there you have the motivation behind "dialogue" with "elder brothers" so succinctly summed up by one of the greatest pioneers of interfaith "dialogue" who participated in the writing of a Church council document, Nostra Aetate. Rabbinic warfare against Christian souls is not fought with guns and bombs, but with "conversation" and "discussion."

Here we see the subtlety of rabbinic warfare--utterly undefended against--even as the rabbis conscribe their spiritually conquered prisoners and their resources to fight their war against the specter of "Islamofascist" "Amalek."

Jewish sect leader held on charges of money laundering

Spinka rabbi faces multiple counts in an alleged tax scheme.

By Tiffany Hsu, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
December 20, 2007

The leader of an Orthodox Jewish sect was arrested Wednesday after authorities unsealed a sweeping 37-count indictment alleging that he operated a decade-long tax fraud and money laundering scheme stretching from Israel through New York to downtown Los Angeles' jewelry district, authorities said.

Grand Rabbi Naftali Tzi Weisz, head of the Spinka religious group, and his executive assistant, Gabbai Moseh E. Zigelman, are accused of soliciting "tens of millions of dollars" in contributions to Spinka charities while secretly promising to refund up to 95% of contributors' donations, federal prosecutors said. The contributors then illegally claimed tax deductions on their bogus donations.

Weisz and Zigelman calculated in January that Zigelman alone had solicited nearly $9 million in 2006, with a $700,000 profit for Spinka after donors were repaid, according to the indictment.

Spinka Jews are members of the Hasidic group within Orthodox Judaism. The sect originated in Romania and has a large population in Israel, Europe and Brooklyn, N.Y., where Weisz and Zigelman reside.

Hasidic Rabbi and Assistant Are Arrested in Tax Scheme

Published: December 20, 2007

The grand rabbi of Spinka, a Brooklyn-based Hasidic sect, was arrested Wednesday with his executive assistant in Los Angeles on charges that they arranged and profited from inflated charitable donations that saved the donors millions of dollars in federal income taxes.

The rabbi, Naftali Tzi Weisz, 59, and the assistant, or gabbai, Moshe E. Zigelman, 60, were charged in a 37-count indictment returned on Tuesday in Los Angeles that named them as the masterminds of the money-laundering scheme, through which the authorities say they reaped more than $750,000 in profits. They were arrested by federal agents while on a fund-raising trip. Six other men in California and in Israel were also charged in the case.

Under the scheme, officials said, Rabbi Weisz and Mr. Zigelman spent more than a decade soliciting contributions for Spinka charities by promising to secretly refund as much as 95 percent of the money to the donors. The donors could then claim tax deductions on the full amount while paying as little as 5 percent, officials said.

In some cases, the contributions were returned as cash payments through what the government called “an underground money transfer network” involving businesses in and around Los Angeles’s jewelry district, the government said.

Three men in California were charged with taking part in the money transfer network: Yaacov Zeivald, 43, a professional scribe from Valley Village, Calif.; Yosef N. Naiman, 55, a tour company owner from Los Angeles; and Alan Friedman, 43, a businessman, also from Los Angeles. A fourth man, Moshe A. Lazar, 60, a diamond dealer, was charged in the scheme as well and was believed to be in Israel, the government said.

The contributions were repaid by a sophisticated series of wire transfers from businesses controlled by the Spinka sect to secret accounts in Israel, the government said. The accounts were established with the help of an official at the Israeli bank, Joseph Roth, 66, of Tel Aviv, who was arrested in Los Angeles, and a Tel Aviv lawyer, Jacob Kantor, 71, who remained at large in Israel, the government said.

According to the indictment, Mr. Roth helped the contributors get loans from a Los Angeles branch of the bank so their money would be available to them in the United States. The contributors could also hire officials of the Spinka sect to repatriate their money for them, albeit for a fee, the government said.

Earlier this year, the indictment said, Rabbi Weisz and Mr. Zigelman determined they had taken in some $8.7 million in contributions solicited by Mr. Zigelman alone. Of that, they held on to almost $750,000, the indictment said.

The case was broken, in part, with the help of a secret cooperating witness, a Los Angeles businessman identified in the indictment only as R. K. In one year alone, before he turned state’s evidence and agreed to record his former colleagues secretly, R. K. contributed about $1.7 million to the Spinka sect’s scheme.

Five Spinka charitable organizations in Brooklyn — identified in the indictment as Yeshiva Imrei Yosef, Yeshivath Spinka, the Central Rabbinical Seminary, Machne Sva Rotzohn and Mesivta Imrei Yosef Spinka — were named as defendants in the case. Calls to them were either not answered or were answered by men who did not wish to discuss the case.

No Obstacle Too High to Separate Brothers, Except Cash

The December 12th meeting between Vatican and Israeli officials to discuss tax and financial issues related to Church property in "Israel" has ended once again in disappointment for the Vatican and Benedict has now decided that the time is not right for a papal visit to the "holy land" of fugitive criminals, ecstasy dealers, white slavery, racial supremacy, apartheid, cluster bombings, spying, crushing oppression of Palestinians, women, Christians, and home to today's version of the Sanhedrin which condemned Christ to death.

And in recent years Benedict has questioned the Christian claim to biblical scripture, bowed before Holocaustolatry, created Talmudic papal knights, and on his watch the Vatican has claimed a biblical basis for the anti-biblical Talmudic "Noahide Laws," among countless other examples of their trampling upon the Gospel in the name of "Jewish-Catholic relations," but it seems the one thing that comes between Benedict and his elder brothers is cash.

Benedict Again Cultivates the Double Mind: Global Warming

Benedict has recently made a strong impression on "trads" with his recent statement on global warming, but just 6 months ago the Vatican participated in Al Gore's 7/7/07 "Live Earth" global warming event. That made a strong impression with me, and since Benedict hasn't redressed the Vatican invitation of the producer of the gory Kill Bill flick, Lawrence Bender to preach a sermon on the Gospel of Global Warming in the Cathedral of Rome, St. John Lateran during the "Live Earth" event, that impression has not changed at all.

The following is the text of the Kill Bill producer's sermon:

"Humanity's finest hours always come whenever we awaken as if from a long sleep, collectively recognize a great wrong and commit ourselves to its remedy. The fight to abolish slavery; the long determined stand against totalitarianism; the on-going struggle to stop hatred, violence and war: In all these instances great change happened when men and women of good will came together and recognized that these issues are not nuances of political questions calling for discussion and deliberation but rather a clear-cut moral...demanding moral action and resolve.

"And in each of these great causes the Church along with men and women of faith worldwide have led the way reminding us through their example that on issues of right and wrong there can be no excuse for apathy or inaction. Today we face another such moment of awakening around the issue of climate change, and once again the Church and faith community are here to remind us of another great truth: the Earth...that the Earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof.

"If left unchecked, climate change will defile God's will. It will wipe out entire species of plant and animal life; it will render regions unlivable; it will cause crushing poverty, disease and misery for the poorest nations and the mos...most vulnerable people. In the Book of Mathew we are reminded that "whatever he does to these least of my brothers, he does unto me."

"That is what Live Earth is all about.
It is about giving voice to the voiceless, and power to the powerless. It is about recognizing our shared destiny on a shared planet. And that is why the leadership of the Vatican is so welcome in this cause. By working to raise awareness and reducing the carbon footprint of the Vatican itself, the Church is affirming its best traditions of moral leadership in moments of crisis. It is an example that deserves recognition and emmulation. Because in the end the solution to the climate crisis lies in the hearts of human beings across the world taking up their moral duty and changing their behavior accordingly.

"With this event we are sending forth many million ripples of change in every corner of the world. Together they will form a mighty torrent. And tomorrow we'll be up to us all to keep growing the energy and the momentum until the power of our committment awakens all of humanity to this cause. Till together we can begin the long hard work of healing our wounded planet. Thank you." (Producer, Lawrence Bender, preaching at St. John Lateran Cathedral of Rome, July 7, 2007)

Following this sermon, the St. John Lateran boys choir sang an eerie modern Kyrie Eleison, apparently begging the Lord for mercy for sins committed against the earth ...

Perpetual Purim, Reversal/Hippuch

The photos above are of the 2007 ceremony of the lighting of the Chabad so-called "National Menorah" on the White House lawn in Washington, D.C.

The photos show Khazar Chabad rabbis dressed as Greek soldiers--ancient enemies of the Maccabean Jews. Some may be aware of the Judaic tradition of reversal (hippuch) where, for instance, men dress as women and women dress as men during Purim celebration. There is a Kabbalistic gnosis veiled beneath this Judaic reversal symbolism that runs deeper than mere festivity; "redemption through reversal (hippuch)".

Celebrating Chanukah 2007 in Saddam Hussein's Republican Palace, who would think? Yet tonight inside a marble encrusted hall in Baghdad, we lit the eighth light of a hand-made, 6-foot tall menorah. We prayed in Hebrew, joyfully sang a medley of Chanukah songs, ate latkes, and best of all, we were Jews together in the land of our earliest forefathers.

The Jewish community at the US Embassy in Baghdad is growing and thriving to such an extent that we now reliably form a minyan. We call ourselves B'nai Baghdad -- a diverse group of US and Coalition uniformed service members and civilians stationed in the International Zone (IZ), known colloquially as the "green zone," an enclave in central Baghdad that houses Iraqi government officials, various embassies, military headquarters, and international aid organizations.

Chanukah at the Vatican, 1997

Chanukah at the Vatican

Dec. 24, 1997

VATICAN (CWN) -- For the first time, Vatican officials and representatives of the Israeli government joined in a ceremony to celebrate Chanukah in the Vatican gardens yesterday, December 23, at nightfall. The ceremony also marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Israeli state.

The Holy See was represented at the ceremony by Cardinal Edward Cassidy, whose duties include oversight of Jewish-Christian relations; and Archbishop Jean-Louis Tauran, the secretary for relations with states. Israel was represented by Aharon Lopez, the ambassador to the Holy See, and Moshe Katzav, vice prime minister in charge of tourism.

Similar ceremonies, marking both Chanukah and the anniversary of Israel's founding, were held in 33 cities around the world.

As he lit the first candle of the celebration, as the representative of Pope John Paul II, Cardinal Cassidy explained that the feast of Chanukah celebrates "the victory of principles on compromise, on faith above force," and suggested that the same principles should be brought to the fore today. Under those circumstances, he said, Israel could look forward to a life of peace and security for all its peoples.

Israel no nuclear threat to neighbours, says Gates

By Kristin Roberts
Reuters - Saturday, December 8

MANAMA (Reuters) - U.S. Defence Secretary Robert Gates defended Israel's nuclear programme on Saturday, saying the Jewish state did not seek to destroy its neighbours or support terrorism, unlike Iran.

Asked at the Manama Dialogue conference whether Israel's nuclear programme posed a threat to the region, Gates replied: "No, I do not."

The statement was greeted by laughter from a room filled with government officials from Middle Eastern countries.

Israel is widely assumed to have the region's only atomic arsenal, but declines to confirm or deny it. Washington has long avoided pressing Israel to go public with its capabilities.

Gates did not specifically mention Israel's nuclear weapons or arsenal, but responded to questions about its "nuclear programme" -- giving the Pentagon chief room to dismiss any suggestion that he implicitly confirmed the weapons' existence in Israel.

He dismissed the allegation that the United States applied a double standard on the nuclear issue by supporting Israel while calling for Iran to abandon its enrichment activities, which Tehran says are for peaceful purposes.

"Israel is not training terrorists to subvert its neighbours. It has not shipped weapons into a place like Iraq to kill thousands of innocent civilians covertly," Gates said.

"It has not threatened to destroy any of its neighbours. It is not trying to destabilise the government of Lebanon.

"So I think there are significant differences in terms of both the history and the behaviour of the Iranian and Israeli governments. I understand there is a difference of view on that," he said.

Iran denies U.S. allegations that it has armed, trained and funded Shi'ite militias in Iraq, blaming the violence in Iraq on the U.S.-led invasion to topple Saddam Hussein in 2003.

A year ago, Gates first angered Israelis during testimony to the U.S. Congress by including Israel in a list of nuclear-armed countries that surround Iran to explain why Tehran might have sought the means to build an atomic bomb. He has not publicly discussed it since.

Israel admits to having two atomic reactors, describing them officially as research facilities. Its refusal to discuss any nuclear weapons capabilities or accept international inspections at the facilities is a major irritant for Arabs and Iran, which see it as a contradiction in U.S. policy in the region.

Update: Jewish Federation rescinds request, apologizes
Hyde Park will leave Nativity scene

Thursday, December 6, 2007

By John Davis
Poughkeepsie Journal

HYDE PARK – A manger scene will remain on the lawn of town hall.

A day after asking the town to remove the nativity scene, Bonnie Meadow, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County, has withdrawn her request.

The public outcry following her request was more than Meadow expected, she said in a letter today to Hyde Park Supervisor Pompey Delafield. She had asked the town to remove the manger scene, claiming it offended some non-Christians in Hyde Park and that it violated federal law.

“I never dreamt that my request to remove the nativity scene at the offices of the Town of Hyde Park would upset so many people so much,” Meadow said in the letter. “It was never my intent to hurt anyone or to spoil their holidays. In view of the public outcry, I hereby rescind my request to you.

“I apologize for whatever difficulty this may have caused and I wish you and your community a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays,” she said.

What better way to prepare oneself worthily to celebrate the anniversary of the Lord's coming into the world as the incarnate God than to join those whose tradition viciously mocks the incarnate God:

Local Catholics, Jews unite at opening Hanukkah service

By JOE ORSO | La Crosse Tribune
Wednesday, December 05, 2007

Two days after Catholics began their Advent season, the local Jewish congregation began Hanukkah with an interfaith first for the Coulee Region.

Bishop Jerome Listecki, head of the Diocese of La Crosse, addressed about 50 people at Congregation Sons of Abraham, making him the first Catholic bishop to speak at the synagogue.

“I am here with you this evening as a friend,” Listecki said, wearing a violet zuchetto that resembled the yarmulkes worn on the heads of Rabbi Saul Prombaum and others gathered. “In that friendship, I share in the confidence that together we might walk in a rededication to our freedom and mutual respect directed by the light that guides our path.”

The event wasn’t the beginning of the relationship between local Jews and Catholics.

In 1998, members of the synagogue, a Catholic parish and United Church of Christ congregation traveled together to Israel ...

The joint celebration was coordinated by Monsignor Bernard McGarty, a visiting scholar of ecumenical studies at Viterbo University, who also attended.

Prombaum, head of the Jewish congregation, led the people in Hebrew, English and silent prayers during the first part of the service.

“Praised are you, Adonai our God, who rules the universe, your word bringing the evening dusk,” the congregation said as Listecki, sitting in the fourth pew, prayed along. “You create day and night, rolling light away from darkness and darkness away from light.”

At the climax of the event, as snow continued to fall outside, Prombaum invited Listecki to light the center candles of four Hanukkah menorahs.

Then Listecki, Prombaum and David and Betty Hammes, a Catholic couple who in January will have been neighbors of the synagogue for 50 years, used the central candles to light the first of the eight Hanukkah candles on the four menorahs.

Prombaum also recognized the Hammeses with a brass leaf on the synagogue’s Tree of Life, and said they live by Leviticus 19:18, which includes the command to love your neighbor as yourself.

“We love you as our neighbors,” Prombaum said to them.

After Listecki’s address, he took questions, including one on the Catholic church’s position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Listecki said the Vatican has tried to maintain itself as an arbiter and a broker of peace.

During his remarks to the congregation, Listecki said the Jewish-Catholic dialogue began in his life with a Jewish friend of his family, who read the Mourner’s Kaddish, a Jewish prayer, at his father’s wake.

And he referred to a Vatican II document he called a blueprint for inter-religious dialogue for the church in the world.

“Words on paper take time to develop and cut through the generations of inaccuracies and errors,” he said, referring to the document, Nostra Aetate. “But friendships are created in the shared experiences of life amid the struggles of our times.”

Scalia "Traditionalism"

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's son, Paul is a priest in the D.C. area who apparently offers the Traditional Latin Mass. Bloggers comment on the flawless Latin and rubrics at his Masses, but also attest to something askew, as is to be expected with neoconservatives:

During the course of the Mass, Fr. Scalia gave an excellent and timely homily on Holy Michael the Archangel, and how he, along with Our Lady, will be our patrons in the battles against relativism and Islam.

Now, I'm as much opposed to relativism as anyone, and I also am concerned with Islam moving into the void that suicidal so-called Christians are leaving for others who do have children and uphold their religion to fill. But if there's a connection between the scourge of relativism in the West and Islam, I'm afraid someone will have to point that out to me. On the other hand, I would be glad to point out to Fr. Scalia that the transmitter of relativism in the West for centuries has been that tradition which his father, Antonin is so enamored by, the Talmudic tradition of Judaism.

It's also curious to see Fr. Scalia, in a rather suspect revisionist twist, make St. Michael to be a warrior against Islam. I recall that Leo XIII's prayer to St. Michael calls him to do battle against:

... principalities and powers, rulers of darkness in this world ... most crafty enemies [who] have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the Spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered ... (Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, Pope Leo XIII 1888, Raccolta 1933)

Quite plainly, it's not Islam that Leo XIII addresses here. Leo XIII was crystal clear as to who the enemy is, as anyone who has read his many encyclicals against Judeo-Masonry and the perpetual condemnation of Talmud and Kabbalah in his Index Expurgatorius is aware.

Any reader of this blog will know that it is not Imams, crypto-Muslims or philo-Muslims who've laid their hands on the possessions of the Church, raising their throne of abominable impiety in the Holy Place itself.

Now, there most certainly is a battle being waged against Islam led by such characters as Wurmser, Ledeen, Perle, Podhoretz, Netanyahu, Cheney, and Bush, but are we to believe that this battle is being fought for the reign of Christ the King and that St. Michael is aiding it, as Fr. Scalia suggests?

Who would stand to benefit from Fr. Paul Scalia's creative account of who St. Michael's temporal enemies are?

Frankly, I've had enough of this neocon, crusader nonsense. If any so-called Catholic is stupid enough to buy into this garbage, I can't stop them from going along with it, but I'll be damned if I'll let them get away with calling it Catholic.

"Elder Brothers" Assault Priest, Vandalize and Desecrate Monastery

St. John in the Desert Monastery closes its gates following assault on father superior

by Gil Zohar

Sunday, 14 October 2007
Toronto Times

One of the most serene holy places in the vicinity of Jerusalem was recently compelled to restrict visits as a result of vandalism, bigotry and theft.

The Franciscan-run St. John in the Desert Monastery, which includes a convent, now only permits Christian pilgrims and secular groups led by a licensed tour guide. Reservations are required to visit the six-hectare Judean Hills shrine, which enjoys a spectacular location amidst heavily forested ancient agricultural terraces. The change in policy follows an altercation there last month involving a group of some 30 Jews described as "settlers" who assaulted the monastery's Father Superior Sergio Olmedo and then trashed the pilgrimage destination.

The monastery, located near Moshav Even Sapir on Hwy. 386, is dedicated to the life of John the Baptist. The shrine is built around the grotto where Christian tradition holds John and his mother lived, and the still-bubbling spring from which they drank. The Arabic name 'Ain al-Habis meaning Spring of the Hermit preserves the ancient tradition tying the place to John.

Elisabeth is buried on the grounds in a tomb that shows Byzantine, Crusader and 20th century construction. A group of nuns lead by Sister Maatje, originally from Neuchatel, Switzerland, live beside the tomb.

St. John in the Desert has long been a favorite hiking destination for Jerusalemites, some of whom combine a visit there with a swim at the nearby Sataf Nature Preserve. Some of those Israeli visitors also came to the 'Ain al-Habis spring – which serves as a baptismal pool – to exploit it as a mikveh. In the spirit of ecumenicalism, Father Sergio permitted the parallel usage.

Unfortunately, he said, over his five years living there "the quality of the visitors has changed." Many of today's Israeli hikers are disrespectful of the site's holiness. "It's a place for meditation and prayer," said the Santiago, Chile-born monk, who has resided in Israel for 14 years.

Some visitors would hop the fence and trespass, armed with guns, he said, reciting a litany of abuse, boorishness and desecration. Women would immodestly wear bikinis at the baptismal pool while men would parade naked. Some would swim in the carp pond, notwithstanding the brackish water, and then wash off in the baptismal pool. Visitors would litter, and not clean up after their pet dogs defecated. Money would be pilfered from the alms collections box.

Not least of the disrespectful behavior was simply talking loudly, and preventing the monks from carrying out their daily routine of prayer.

St. John in the Desert is not just a monastery, explained Father Sergio, but a "hermitage, a place of silence and spiritual rejuvenation."

The final straw on the proverbial camel's back came in the afternoon of Friday, August 17. A group of about 30 men, some carrying machine guns, forced their way past the gate, demanded to use the pool as a mikveh and refused to leave, Father Sergio recounted. "They started to say 'Eretz Israel is our land, and you have to go.' They were very aggressive. They spit at me. They said 'You killed my family.'"

In the ensuing scuffle Father Sergio managed to photograph some of his assailants with his cell phone camera. They were wearing kippot and tzitzit, he noted. Some were dressed in orange in the fashion of activists protesting last summer's withdrawal from Gush Katif. Some were speaking English, and others Hebrew.

Father Sergio, still badly shaken, characterized the group as "fanatics". "I've seen these [kind of] people in Hebron."

Before finally leaving, the enraged crowd went on a mini-pogrom, breaking water pipes, smashing potted plants, and destroying property. Father Sergio and the other monks subsequently found direction signs leading to the property had been vandalized so that the word "Franciscan" read "racist".

Father Sergio lodged a complaint with Israel Police and provided them with his digital photos. No arrests have been made at the time of this writing. The pool remains padlocked.

More Documentation on AJC Agent, Malachi Martin

The following is from the book, Spiritual Radical: Abraham Joshua Heschel in America by Edward K. Kaplan. This is an important book for those interested in the machinations of the American Jewish Committee in the Second Vatican Council. It recreates this history, presumably from copious AJC notes, documents, transcripts, interviews and cataloged letters. Rabbi Abraham Heschel was the primary AJC player in the authoring of and shepherding of the document Nostra Aetate through the council. I will be returning to him later. But for now we offer further documentation of what has already been revealed of Malachi Martin's role in this matter:

"Less overtly, [AJC European director, Zachariah] Shuster found other ways to obtain restricted information, and even copies of secret documents. He developed a clandestine source of information, a "mole" within Cardinal Bea's Secretariat. The secret agent was an Irish Jesuit, Malachi Martin, a voluble, larger-than-life figure variously referred to as "Forest," "Pushkin," and Heschel's "young friend" in Schuster's confidential reports and transcripts of transatlantic phone conversations. Martin ... was sympathetic to the Jewish position ...

"With a mixture of motives, lofty and ignoble, Martin became close to Heschel and Schuster. He enjoyed their company immensely, especially when they vied with each other in telling jokes in Yiddish ... Martin primarily advised the AJC on theological issues, but he also provided logistical intelligence and copies of restricted documents." (Spiritual Radical: Abraham Joshua Heschel in America, Edward K. Kaplan, Yale University Press, p.243)

Cited sources for this information are an interview with Malachi Martin, a letter from Martin to the author, and a file on Zachariah Schuster at AJC/NY.

The Dialogical Path Towards Disaster

The dialectical method ("dialogical reasoning") in practice between Vatican prelates and the rabbis in recent decades, a type of pilpul which has effected radical change in every aspect of Catholicism, was expounded upon by Kasper and Ratzinger mentor, Hasidic philosopher, Martin Buber in his book, I and Thou. I highly recommend this book to those seeking to understand the illogic in "Jewish"-Catholic dialogue. I would say this book is far more influential in the thinking of Benedict, Kasper, et al, than most books commonly ascribed.

A lecture recently given by Massimo Giuliani, a professor of Jewish Studies and Philosophical Hermeneutics at the University of Trent, at the Pontifical Gregorian University of Rome titled, "The Shoah as a Shadow upon Jewish-Christian Dialogue and as a Stimulus to It" illustrates how this Kabbalistic sorcery works.

It is stated that:
"the Shoah" is "the climax of a centuries-long history of discrimination and persecution against the Jewish people in the West."
I would argue that the Nazi persecution of Judaic persons during W.W.II was a reaction (antithesis) to Judaic Bolshevism and Communism (thesis); an unsurprising event in an increasingly antagonized and deChristianized Europe (synthesis). How does one expect "the West" to be Christian when Christianity is stripped from it? The Nazi persecution of Judaic persons was the climax of a dialectic between utterly anti-Christian ideologies, Communism and Nazism, set in motion by the Judaic Zionist, Moses Hess (see: Judaism Discovered pp. 853-878 or Revisionist History Newsletter no. 40: The Zionist Who Founded Communism and Revisionist History Newsletter No. 39: The Russian Roots of Nazism).

Nevertheless, it is stated that this ridiculous alleged truth is painful to acknowledge, but "all ethically formed consciouses" accept this alleged truth and the pain inherent to it and that acceptance of both:
"... are already an integral part of the dialogic commitment. In other words they are already constitutive and constructive elements of that readiness to listen and to interact with the other, without which no dialogue, no encounter is possible. Indeed, in the reciprocal attention of Christians and Jews the memory of the pain that was inflicted and was endured during the Shoah, and the anxiety induced by the gradual realization of the first and the more remote causes that made that tragedy possible, truly represent necessary conditions to ensure that our attention is authentic and the dialogue is sincere."

In other words, the game is rigged. The thesis is discarded and the antithesis becomes the starting point for the dialogue. The dialogue--the dialogical process-- must begin with the "pain of acknowledgement" of alleged Christian guilt for the "Shoah" as it's genesis, rather than, for instance, the Judaic-Bolshevik terror in Russia that preceded "the Shoah," which many would say is a culmination of millennia worth of Judaic discrimination against Christians, but hardly it's climax. No:
"... in this dialogue Christians “begin” from this memory [of 'The Shoah'], well expressed by the document of March 16th, 1998 called We Remember: A Reflection on the Shoah, signed by the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews."

In such a relativist game, it is rather comical to see such a rigid, absolute first principle. But there it is: "The Shoah," the point of reference by which all (and I do mean ALL) things are evaluated.

The lecturer then demonstrates what absurd lengths this is taken to by quoting Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger:

The drama of the Shoah has placed the whole question [of Christian Old Testament hermeneutics] in another light. [The Pontifical Biblical Commission] faced two main problems: After all that has happened, can the Christians continue in their untroubled claim that they are the legitimate heirs of the Bible of Israel? Can they continue with a Christian interpretation of this Bible, or should they rather, respectfully and humbly, abandon a claim, which, in the light of all that has taken place, necessarily smacks of presumption? And here we also find a second problem: Is it perhaps the case that the presentation of the Jews and of the Jewish people in the very text of the New Testament contributed to the creation of a hostility against this people, which favored the ideology of those who wanted to suppress it?”

To which the lecturer adds the notion that Christians are "forever spiritually linked" to the people of the Talmud and in light of "The Shoah" must rework every aspect of Christian religion:

"These are questions, therefore, that induce Christians – provided they have understood the deep significance of the greatest tragedy in Jewish history, and in virtue of the link that spiritually and forever ties the people of the Bible and the Talmud to those baptized in the name of Jesus Christ – to rethink their very identity and their own interpretation of revealed Scripture, and thus to rediscover “the holy root that supports us,” that Israel “after the flesh” (in other words, in history), which the Apostle Paul discusses with the highest theological and existential pathos. The Shoah, from being an obstacle to Jewish-Christian dialogue, has become not only a stimulus to rediscover and to reappraise Israel, its texts and its traditions, enabling Christians to dialogue with the Jews, but also a sting and a key for an analysis and a “work on oneself” that somehow encompasses all components of Christian identity: from the hermeneutics of Scripture to Christology, from ecclesiological reflection even to liturgy ..." (The Shoah as a Shadow upon Jewish-Christian Dialogue and as a Stimulus to It, Massimo Giuliani, Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome – November 16th, 2004)

He has authored several books and articles on contemporary Jewish thought and the Holocaust.

Rabbis Give the Gift of Guilt, and a Hex

I would recommend that this gesture be reciprocated with a gift of a crucifix commemorating the millions of Russian Christians who died at the hands of the Judaic Bolsheviks as "Jewry" did nothing to prevent it and quite a bit to cause it, and to cover it up to this day. But the "elder brother" rabbis have a tendency to urinate on crucifixes. Handing one over to them would be ill advised. And the Vatican is hardly more interested in commemorating the deaths of the millions of Christian victims of Judeo-Bolshevism than the rabbis.

Note the extreme importance of the number 6 (million), despite the fact that even Judaic scholars have been saying for some time that number is not accurate. This is Kabbalah talk, not reality.

Jewish group presents candelabra to Catholic cardinal in interfaith gesture

The Associated Press
December 2, 2007

JERUSALEM: A Jewish group on Sunday presented a candelabra symbolizing Jewish victims of the Nazi Holocaust to a Catholic cardinal, a way of underlining positive changes in Jewish-Catholic relations in recent decades.

The candelabra has six branches, in memory of the 6 million Jews killed by German Nazis and their collaborators during World War II.

Rabbi Jack Bemporad, of the Center for Interreligious Understanding, the New Jersey-based organization that facilitated the gift, presented the menorah to Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, head of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, a Catholic study center in Jerusalem. The purpose was "to offer a loving embrace to the Jewish people," Bemporad said,

The bronze menorah features six men, women and children wearing Jewish prayer shawls and standing on a broken star of David.

"The candle is a tragic symbol, because it consumes itself by giving light," Bemporad said.

Jewish leaders and historians have long charged that the Catholic church did not do all it could to stop the slaughter during the Holocaust, while Catholic scholars have countered that the church was severely limited in its abilities to influence the Nazis.

Bemporad said the turning point in Catholic-Jewish relations came in 1965 at the end of the Second Vatican Council, when Jews were absolved of the killing of Jesus and anti-Semitism was banned.

Martini thanked Bemporad for the gift and lit the first candle. Martini, who has written several books on the centrality of Jerusalem in the religious life of the Catholic church, called the city "the center of world history, the center of hope."

The menorah will remain on permanent display at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Jerusalem.

Rabbinic Hygiene

These are Benedict's elder brothers, and what they have planned can most certainly be compared to Nazism, but why draw an analogy? The rabbis are working from their own ancient tradition of race hatred disguised as "one of the world's three great religions" which Benedict would have us believe Christianity has "sprung from."

Rabbi: Cleanse country of Arabs

"We must cleanse the country of Arabs and resettle them in the countries where they came from," head of the Yesha Rabbis Council, Rabbi Dov Lior, declared Monday, adding that, "If this means we have to pay them, we will. Without doing so, we will never enjoy peace in our land."

Lior made the statement during an "emergency meeting" of the Association of Rabbis for the People of Israel and the Land of Israel held in Jerusalem ahead of the Annapolis peace conference.

"You have no cause for concern, no peace will come out of all these conferences and agreements," Lior told the participants. The rabbi stated that although he was interested in peace, Israel could never hope to achieve peaceful relations "with evil people of this kind." (Ynet, Kobi Nahshoni, November 27, 2007)
