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

September 26, 2007

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"

September 25, 2007

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.
