Bishop Denied Entry into Gaza

November 26, 2008

The Israeli “heightened state of security,” which translates to mean the Israelis are crushing the Palestinians more than usual, apparently serves as cover for an Israeli jab at the Vatican. What a shameful situation it is for the Vatican maintaining an illusion that “Jewish”-Christian relations is mutually beneficial and committed towards advancing morality in the world.

AMMAN – The Israeli authorities on Sunday barred Papal Nuncio Archbishop Antonio Franco from leading a mass with the local Christians at a church in Gaza, sources said.

The archbishop, who is also the apostolic delegate in Jerusalem and Palestine, has been in Palestine for almost three years.

The incident is the first of its kind. “The trip is not of a diplomatic kind,” Father Humam Khzouz, a Jordanian priest based in Palestine, who was accompanying the archbishop on his trip, said over the phone from Jerusalem on Monday.

“It was largely a spiritual mission to celebrate a mass with the locals who were looking forward to spending holy time with the archbishop,” he told The Jordan Times. At the moment, the parish in Gaza is vacant since its priest Monsignor Manuel Mussallam was allowed to visit his family in Birzeit after spending eight years in Gaza.

It was also the first time the 300 worshippers at the “Holy Family” church were left without a Sunday mass.

“This is a disrespect to all diplomatic ties between Israel and the Vatican, as well as a violation against the rights of the Christians in Gaza, who have the right to hold their rituals freely,” Amman-based Roman Catholic priest Rifat Bader told The Jordan Times.

Father Khzouz said: “I, along with the three priests, have service passports which allow us to travel without previous arrangements with the Israeli authority.”

On the other hand, he added, the archbishop has an official diplomatic passport accredited from the Israeli foreign ministry.

Nevertheless, contacts were held with Israeli officials from the foreign ministry three days prior to the papal nuncio’s visit to Gaza.

“The Israeli authorities knew of our visit since Tuesday,” Father Khzouz said. “Still,” he added, “they [the Israeli authorities] left us waiting at the Erez crossing for almost three hours,” while the Israelis allowed other delegations “to enter and leave Gaza on the same day”.

“We were standing there [at the Erez Crossing] barred from entering Gaza while the UN, Red Cross and other officials were permitted in and out of the strip,” Father Khzouz said.

“It could be sensed that this behaviour on the part of Israel is meant as a negative message to the Vatican,” Father Bader said.

Pope’s "Prophesy"

November 21, 2008

Any system based in fraud is destined for collapse. It’s no prophesy to say this. It’s a statement of fact. The pope and the rabbis’ “Judeo-Catholic relations” racket, which is based in massive fraud, will collapse just as surely as the fraud-based world economy.

Xavier Unequally Yoked to Hebrew Union

November 18, 2008

What a swindle. Hebrew Union’s faculty will teach “Jewish studies” at Xavier now, and at some time in the future Xavier’s faculty will teach education and business administration classes at Hebrew Union. “Jewish”-Catholic relations is a one way street; a fraud.

Xavier, Hebrew Union to collaborate on academics

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and Xavier University have formed an academic collaborative to offer classes on each other’s campuses, the two Cincinnati schools said Tuesday.

The collaborative was spearheaded by Rabbi David Ellenson, president of the Jewish rabbinical seminary, and the Rabbi David Ellenson, president of the Jesuit-run university, according to a news release. A $750,000 grant from the Macy’s Foundation is helping to fund the initiative.

In phase one, Hebrew Union faculty members will provide courses on Xavier’s campus, allowing the university to offer a minor in Jewish studies. In phase two, Xavier faculty members will offer undergraduate and graduate courses at Hebrew Union, enabling its students to enroll in certain XU professional programs like education and business administration.

“It is in this spirit of ecumenicism, reconciliation and hope – and with the conviction that both our Catholic and Jewish traditions require that we do the work of the Divine in this world – that an exciting and unprecedented partnership between this great Catholic university and this venerable Jewish seminary has been created,” Ellenson said in the release.

Xavier University, a liberal arts university founded in 1831, has about 6,650 graduate and undergraduate students. Hebrew Union, founded in 1875, has learning centers in Cincinnati, New York, Los Angeles and Jerusalem.
