Young Jewish, Catholic leaders meet

June 24, 2009

ROME (JTA) — About 50 young Jewish and Catholic leaders gathered near Rome at a conference sponsored by Vatican and Jewish interfaith bodies.

Some 25 Jewish and 25 Catholic delegates from a number of countries are taking part in what organizers are calling the “first Catholic-Jewish Emerging Leadership Conference to promote and facilitate the next generation of leadership in Catholic-Jewish relations.”

Hosted by the Vatican and convened by the International Catholic-Jewish Liaison Committee, “Discovering Common Values: a Catholic-Jewish Leadership Conference” is taking place at Pope Benedict XVI’s summer residence at Castel Gandolfo.

The program, which ends Thursday, includes seminars about the history of Catholic-Jewish relations, training sessions for Catholic-Jewish engagement, and discussion on issues facing Catholics and Jews today.

The International Catholic-Jewish Liaison Committee (ILC)—the convened body of the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews and the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations (IJCIC)—is delighted to announce the first Catholic-Jewish Emerging Leadership Conference to promote and facilitate the next generation of leadership in Catholic-Jewish relations.

A Steering Committee of emerging leaders was convened in Budapest, Hungary, from 6 November through 9 November, 2008, just prior to the 20th ILC meeting, also held in Budapest. The group of six Catholic participants and five Jewish participants spent an extended weekend learning from one another, visiting local religious communities, and discussing the program for the upcoming emerging leaders conference. These young leaders then served as full delegates to the ILC meeting—the first formal inclusion of next-generation leaders in this forum. The theme and draft program for the upcoming conference emerged over the course of these meetings.

“Discovering Common Values: A Catholic-Jewish Leadership Conference” is scheduled to take place from 21 June through 25 June, 2009 in Castel Gandolfo, Italy. The conference will include seminars about the history of Catholic-Jewish relations, training sessions for Catholic-Jewish engagement, and an opportunity for participants to identify and discuss the current issues they see facing Catholics and Jews today. The program will also include opportunities for visiting local religious communities and participating in a social action project.

The Conference is expected to be comprised of twenty-five Catholic delegates and twenty-five Jewish delegates. Participants should be between the ages of 20 and 35 and should demonstrate a strong Jewish educational background and a keen commitment to interreligious affairs. Although delegates are not required to be employed in the field of interreligious affairs, this program is specifically targeted towards those who will be able to take the lessons and messages of this conference and extend them to their local networks and communities.

Any questions or comments regarding the Catholic-Jewish Emerging Leadership Conference can be directed to Rabbi Leslie Bergson at (212) 751-4000, x460 or bergsonl@ajc.org.

John Loftus

June 26, 2009

Every once in a while John Loftus is strangely cited as a credible source by people who should know better.

Here are a few leads on John Loftus:

He’s on the B’nai B’rith lecture circuit and a former president of a Holocaust Museum:

http://bnaibrith.org/lbureau/loftus_john.cfm

He’s an author of a conspiracy tract titled The Secret War Against the Jews which contains an apologia for convicted spy for ‘Israel,’ Jonathan Pollard. The book also contains an apologia for the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty. Read a few critiques of Loftus’ nonsense from men who were aboard the USS Liberty when it was attacked by the Israeli military here:

http://tiny.cc/sReoV

John Loftus is an author of a book titled, Unholy Trinity which regurgitates black legends of a Vatican-Nazi conspiracy.

http://www.amazon.com/Unholy-Trinity-Vatican-Nazis-Swiss/dp/031218199X

He’s president of an outfit called “Intelligence Summit” (working with ‘former’ CIA and Mossad agents) the objective of which is to conform all branches of government and law enforcement at every level with the Zionist/Holocaustolatry agenda. From its mission statement:

The International Intelligence Summit™ initally was founded as a fully authorized program of the International Holocaust Education Center (IHEC) …

Originally incorporated as the International Holocaust Education Center, after 9/11 IHEC rapidly expanded its educational mission from fighting racism to fighting terrorism, and is now known as the Intelligence and Homeland Security Education Center.

http://www.intelligencesummit.org/

In 2004 Loftus headed a similar organization, “Intelcon.” From its mission statement:

Intelligence today embraces more than the civilian and military agencies of the federal intelligence community. In this age of terrorism, it is critically important for state and local law enforcement to know how and where to obtain intelligence, and to whom it should be forwarded. Corporate and private-sector intelligence managers face new and diverse challenges, from defending against economic espionage to creating new technology to meet intelligence’s future needs.

Many members of the press (and even a few members of Congress) lack the depth of knowledge in intelligence which is necessary to deal with, and resolve, its complex issues. The same is true for non-governmental organizations, the academic community, media, and ethnic and religious organizations. All of these diverse components of the intelligence domain will come together at INTELCON.

http://web.archive.org/web/20050828084756/http://www.fbcinc.com/intelcon/

Before it was removed from the web, Loftus’ bio at his website contained this claim:

“As a young U.S. Army officer, John Loftus helped train Israelis on a covert operation that turned the tide of battle in the 1973 Yom Kippur War.”

http://web.archive.org/web/20071205025640/http://www.john-loftus.com/bio.asp

John Loftus sticks to his claim that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq prior to the attack on that nation, even at this late hour, because he was one of the most ambitious agitators for the attack on Iraq. The WMD’s claim is only one of a myriad of entirely unsubstantiated claims about Iraq that he made on a nightly basis on the super-Zionist Batchelor and Alexander show on ABC radio circa 2002-2003. This guy is a bona fide Zionist disinformation agent of the most extreme bent. He’s been angling for an attack on Iran since 2004. Beware.

More Pilpul From the USCCB

June 19, 2009

All the hairsplitting pilpul in the world can’t turn non-believing Ashkenzim, Sephardim, et al, into biblical, chosen people. The 2002 Reflections on Covenant and Mission document is groundless; a fraud based upon a fraud. This “clarification” is only another step in the dialectical process towards Benedict’s “reconciliation between Christians and ‘Jews'” where ‘Jews’ continue in their unbelief, deluded racial conceit and adherance to anti-biblical rabbinism, while Christians, by guilt and cajolery, are converted away from the Gospel and into the ‘Noahide’ fraud.

These so-called ‘Jews’ don’t believe Jesus Christ, nor do they even believe Moses (John 5;41-47). Their unsubstantiated claim to genetic descent from the patriarchs affords them no special relationship with the Church. The bishops’ suggestion to the contrary is anti-biblical, rabbinic nonsense.

USCCB Clarifies Key Points From Reflections On Covenant And Mission Statement (2002)

June 19, 2009

WASHINGTON DC (MetroCatholic) – A statement clarifying two points of Catholic teaching relative to the Jewish community was released June 18, at the spring meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). A Note on Ambiguities Contained in Covenant and Mission was jointly issued by the Committee on Doctrine and Pastoral Practice and the Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. The statement can be found at http://www.usccb.org/bishops/covenant09.pdf.

“Our most important concern here is a pastoral one,” said Archbishop Wilton Gregory, chairman of the Bishops’ Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. “The 2002 document, Covenant and Mission, raised many questions among Catholics in the United States about how the Church relates to the Jewish community. Today’s statement helps to answer these questions clearly.”

Bishop William Lori, chairman of the Bishops’ Committee on Doctrine and Pastoral Practice, stated that there were two key points at issue.

“The USCCB reaffirms what the Holy See has stated repeatedly: that while the Catholic Church does not proselytize the Jewish people, neither does she fail to witness to them her faith in Christ, nor to welcome them to share in that same faith whenever appropriate.” Bishop Lori said. He added that current debates over the question of how Catholics understand the covenant with Moses in relation to Christ were equally important. The covenant with Moses, that continues to be adhered to by Jews today, is fulfilled, Christians believe, in Jesus.

“As followers of Jesus, we see his covenant as fulfilling God’s plan for the salvation of all peoples, both now and at the end of time,” Bishop Lori said.

Archbishop Gregory commended the on-going work of scholars and pastors in Catholic-Jewish dialogue. “Pope John Paul II once referred to Jews as ‘our elder brothers and sisters in faith’”, he said. “By continuing our study together, we hope to deepen our understanding of Jesus and our relationship with each other in God’s redemption of the world.”

James von Brunn: The Shimon ben Yohai of "The White Race, " and His Contribution to Holocaustolatry

June 12, 2009

Manchurian candidate, James von Brunn has prepared the altar. Now comes the procession of bishops to incense the idol of Holocaustolatry, once again. The liturgical season of “The Holocaust” never ends.

James von Brunn, like the rabbis, is an anti-Christian racial determinist. He’s mentally programmed to behave in an anti-Christian rabbinic manner. Like the rabbis, who teach that “Amalek” is a genetically programmed enemy of “The Jews” and cannot be reasoned with and therefore must be killed, HERE, HERE, and HERE, so does James von Brunn believe that “The Jews” are genetically programmed enemies of “The White Race” and cannot be reasoned with and therefore must be killed, HERE (scroll to bottom). In essence, there is no difference between James von Brunn and Rabbi Shimon ben Yohai who he paraphrased in the title of his book, Kill the Best Gentiles. But one of these race haters is sainted while the other will live in infamy in accordance with the crazy double-standards of this crazy, racist world, which the bishops honor above all.

And here is Cardinal George sanctifying the “hallowed space” of the U.S. Holocaust Museum and calling for more “education” against every kind of bias (except pro-Judaic bias, of course). No, Cardinal George, the world needs the Gospel, the teachings of Jesus Christ which your elder brothers are attempting to destroy with their “education” and Holocaustolatry.

Cardinal calls shooting at US Holocaust museum ‘appalling’

Friday 12 June 2009

WASHINGTON (CNS) – The president of the United States bishops’ conference called the June 10 shooting at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum that left a security guard dead “appalling”.

James von Brunn, identified as an 88-year-old Holocaust denier and white supremacist, opened fire in the Washington museum and fatally shot guard Stephen Johns, 39, according to The Associated Press.

The shooting “was a deplorable act of violence and a violation of a hallowed space in our nation’s capital,” said Cardinal Francis E. George of Chicago in a statement released June 11 by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Washington.

“This tragic incident only serves to reinforce the need for continued education throughout society against bias of every kind, but most especially racial and religious prejudice,” he said.

In a separate statement Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl of Washington said June 11 the murder was “particularly distressing given the museum’s special mission to educate our world about violence and be a living reminder of the harm that comes from hatred and anger.”

“It is our prayer that Mr. Johns rest in God’s eternal embrace and that this loss be a call to each of us for a renewed commitment to building a world of peace and respect for all people,” Archbishop Wuerl said.

The archdiocese collaborates with the museum, the bishops’ conference and other groups each year to train Catholic school educators to teach their students about anti-Semitism, the Holocaust, prejudice and Catholic-Jewish relations.

In his statement Cardinal George said that that “by preserving the memory of the 6 million Jews who died in the Shoah, the museum speaks to the consciences of all who pass through its doors and hear the powerful stories of the innocent men, women and children who lost their lives at the hands of a criminal regime.”

He noted that annually millions of the visitors to the museum “learn of the dangers of unchecked hatred and of the need to prevent genocide wherever it threatens.”

The cardinal, on behalf of the U.S. bishops, offered condolences to the Johns family and said the Catholic leaders are “committed to promoting human dignity and interreligious peace throughout our nation.”

“We echo the words of Pope Benedict XVI: ‘May the Shoah be a warning for all against forgetfulness, denial or reductionism, because violence committed against one single human being is violence against all,'” he said.
