Some Perspective on the Helen Thomas Stoning

June 9, 2010

In 2008 Israeli Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger called for a final solution ethnic/religious cleansing of Gaza saying its inhabitants should be moved to the Sinai Desert where a state would be built for them paid for by Britain, the European Union and the United States. News report and video here:

Israeli Chief Rabbi Calls For Religious/Ethnic Cleansing

In 2010 Helen Thomas said that Judaic people should leave land they unjustly forced Palestinians from and return to their homes in Poland, Germany the U.S. and elsewhere.

In 2008 Chief Rabbi Metzger thanked G.W. Bush for his support of “Israel” and in particular for waging an unjust war against Iraq. News report here:

Israeli Chief Rabbi Thanks Bush for War On Iraq

Helen Thomas has consistently opposed the unjust, catastrophic war on Iraq.

Chief Rabbi Metzger still wields power and influence to perpetrate injustice. Helen Thomas has been fired and ostracized for standing for justice.

If we don’t stand for those who stand for justice when they’re attacked we deserve no better than this: a world enslaved by crushing rabbinic double standards and hypocrisy. I can’t imagine what encourages the rabbis more than for us to flee in cowardice as they stone our most courageous people.

Chief Rabbis’ Race War Tract Repackaged for Judeo-Churchgoers as "Pro-Life" Message

December 31, 2009

The Chief Rabbis of Counterfeit Israel have recently distributed a tract to all Israeli rabbis instructing them to teach Israeli Judaic couples to have more children and less abortions. The Jerusalem Post:

Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Metzger told The Jerusalem Post that it was important to encourage fertility and discourage abortions, in part, to fight a demographic war. “I am sorry to say that our enemies are multiplying … Rabbis have a role in encouraging their communities to have children and to discourage abortions. It is the best weapon against our enemies,” Metzger said. (“Rabbis: Abortion will delay the redemption,” Jerusalem Post, Matthew Wagner, Dec 29, 2009)

This story was repackaged for “righteous Gentile” consumption–with the above quoted key to understanding the essence of the matter wiped from the record–and distributed to Judeo-Churchgoer outfits, for example, HERE, and HERE.

The poor souls who read the “righteous Gentile” version of the story will likely come away believing that the rabbis are against abortion, which is false (see Judaism Discovered pp. 878-885), and that the rabbis champion the rights of all unborn babies, whether they be of Israeli or, say, Palestinian parentage, which is delusional.

This is a case of rabbinic situation ethics. The rabbis are faced with the stark reality that Israeli death-culture produces far fewer children than Palestinian culture (which we are supposed to believe is the death culture). The Palestinian birth rate is greatly outpacing the Israeli birth rate in “the only Democracy in the Middle East.” Once there is a Palestinian majority in the Zionist state, even the pretense of Democracy will be disposed of. There is no chance of true democratic representation for Palestinians in “The ‘Jewish’ State.” So, given the Israeli demographics reality, the rabbis, who in ‘the diaspora’ are at-the-ready with their halakhic loopholes for abortion, suddenly must rule against abortion–Judaic abortion, that is. There is no principle that the rabbis won’t circumvented when “the times require it” HERE, and HERE. Such is the fluid nature of rabbinic Judaism.

The reality of how “enemy” babies are regarded in the Israeli state:

There is nothing pro-life about the rabbis of Counterfeit Israel.

Archaeologists Unearth Human Skulls Used in Talmudic Era Judaic Rituals

April 13, 2009

“Newly published archaeological evidence attests to the fact that ancient Jews used human skulls in ceremonies, despite a strict Halakhic prohibition on touching human remains.”

Ah, yes. But according to the same halacha, non-Judaic corpses do not defile: “R. Simeon b. Yohai said: The graves of Gentiles do not defile, for it is written, And ye my flock, the flock of my pastures, are men; only ye are designated ‘men.’”(Babylonian Talmud, Bava Metzia 114b, Soncino Edition). Nice try at absolving the rabbis of this witchcraft.

‘Ancient Jews used skulls in ceremonies despite ban’

Ofri Ilani – Haaretz

Newly published archaeological evidence attests to the fact that ancient Jews used human skulls in ceremonies, despite a strict Halakhic prohibition on touching human remains.

British researcher Dan Levene from the University of Southampton published findings in Biblical Archaeological Review about the human skulls, known as incantation bowls, some of which bear inscriptions in Aramaic.

The skulls were unearthed in present-day Iraq (formerly Babylonia) and are believed to have been used during the Talmudic era. At least one of them appears to be that of an anonymous woman.

“When I presented these findings in Israel, people told me, ‘It is not possible that this is Jewish,'” said Levene. “But it is certainly Jewish.”

Levene added that, despite going against conventional wisdom, the talisman was likely used by someone desperate, and that there have been past cases of skulls being used to ward off increased ghosts or demons.

“The fact remains that belief in demons was widespread at this time among Jews as well as other peoples,” writes Levene. “Incantation bowls are known not only from Jewish communities but from other communities as well.”

To combat demons – who cause medical problems as well as other mishaps and ills – people invoked numerous magic rites and formulas.

Vatican Answers to Chief Rabbinate of Counterfeit Israel

June 5, 2008

The Chief Rabbinate of counterfeit Israel requested that the traditional Latin Good Friday liturgy be changed in July of 2007 and their wish was fulfilled on Shrove Tuesday only six months later:


http://mauricepinay.blogspot.com/2007/08/chief-rabbinate-of-israel.html

http://mauricepinay.blogspot.com/2008/02/new-latin-good-friday-prayer.html

When the requested change in the liturgy was delivered, the Chief Rabbinate of “Israel” requested further clarification which the Vatican offered on May 14th, 2008 according to the ADL and AJC websites. The document apparently issued by Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Bertone makes clear that Benedict’s prayer “is not intended to promote proselytism toward the Jews” but that it “opens up an eschatological [end times] perspective.” Also, according to this document, the Chief Rabbinate and other modern Pharisees that the Vatican “dialogues” with the are heirs to the promises God made to Abraham; the rabbis and their anti-Bible, anti-Christ contrivance has God’s blessing.

Vatican Letter to Israeli Chief Rabbinate

SECRETARIAT OF STATE

From the Vatican, 14 May 2008

Dear Sir,

I write with reference to the Statement issued by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel in response to the publication of the Note of 4 February 2008, altering the Oremus et pro Judaeis prayer in the 1962 edition of the Missale Romanum.

In this regard, I would point out that – by means of the “Communiqué of the Secretariat of State” which appeared in the daily edition of L’Osservatore Romano on 5 April 2008, and subsequently in the weekly language editions of the same publication, the Holy See has clearly emphasized the Catholic Church’s firm commitment, especially in the wake of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, to promote and develop relations with the Jews through dialogue marked by profound respect, sincere esteem and cordial friendship. This commitment remains unchanged, especially in view of the spiritual links that exist between Jews and Christians.

As you have observed, particular prominence has also been given to a substantial and detailed article on the subject by Cardinal Walter Kasper, President of the Commission for Religious Relations with Judaism. This article appeared on the front page of L’Osservatore Romano on 10 April 2008, as a sign of the importance attributed to the text and the fact that what it says about the new version of the Prayer for the Jews in the 1962 edition of the Roman Missal is commonly held. Among other things, the Cardinal emphasized that a sincere dialogue between Jews and Christians is possible, on the one hand, on the basis of our common faith in the one God, Creator of heaven and earth, and in the promises made to Abraham, but on the other hand, through respectfully acknowledging the fundamental difference over faith in Jesus as Christ and Redeemer of all mankind. As Cardinal Kasper clearly explains, the new Oremus et pro Judaeis is not intended to promote proselytism toward the Jews, and it opens up an eschatological perspective. Christians, however, cannot but bear witness to their faith, in full and total respect for the freedom of others, and this leads them also to pray that all will come to recognize Christ.

Likewise, on his recent visit to the United States of America, the Holy Father gave a number of indications of his sentiments towards the Jews. Indeed, after meeting the representatives of various religions, the Pope particularly wanted to receive a group of Jewish religious leaders in order to hand over to them a special Message on the occasion of the great feast of Pesah, devoted to celebrating the great marvels that Almighty God has worked for his people.

In New York, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI visited a synagogue in order to meet personally a Jewish community whose Rabbi was a survivor from the Nazi extermination camps. He wanted to manifest his sympathy, affection and closeness to the Jewish people, and to demonstrate, through a tangible and special gesture, the Holy See’s commitment to respectful and loving dialogue, which leads to ever deeper relations of friendship and understanding.

In the hope that this letter may serve to dispel any remaining doubt on the part of the Chief Rabbinate over the Catholic Church’s stance towards the Jewish people and over the intentions behind the alteration of the Oremus et pro Judaeis of the 1962 Missale Romanum, I remain

Yours sincerely,

Tarcisio Card. Bertone
Secretary of State

Vatican to Issue Clarification as Requested by Pharisees

March 5, 2008

Catholic Church Conservation blog has offered this translation of a Radio Vatikan communication:

http://cathcon.blogspot.com/2008/03/cardinal-kasper-expects-end-soon-to.html

In the dispute over the Catholic Good Friday intercession, Curial Cardinal Walter Kasper expects a conciliatory solution. He is in contact with leading Jewish representatives , Kasper said on Tuesday. In the coming days, he will talk about the process with the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem, who moreover, wished to meet with Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone. There will then be a statement. Then the process should be settled, said Kasper.

In early February, Pope published a new version of the intercession for the Jews in the Good Friday liturgy in the extraordinary Latin rite which generated fierce opposition from Jewish representatives. It says that the Jews should recognise Jesus Christ as saviour of all people . Critics feared a retrograde step in Catholic-Jewish dialogue. The Curial cardinal spoke at the presentation in the Vatican of a commemorative book for his 75th Birthday .
