New Testament and Catholic Schools Processed by Talmudic Dialectics

November 20, 2007

“As above, so below,” so says the Hermetic tenet. What happens in Rome is happening in the local parishes. Benedict and his favorite rabbi, Jacob Neusner have demonstrated how it should be done. Background on that HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE. And evidence of it’s filtration down to the parishes is supplied below.

Anyone who has read the talmudic texts will recognize the dialectical pilpul at play here–the lawyerly process of synthesizing anti-biblical interpretations of biblical texts. What makes it even more diabolical here is that one of the rabbis engaged in the process is wearing a priest suit and the subject is the New Testament.

Also relevant is the method by which Benedict and Kasper’s favorite Hasidic sophist, Martin Buber synthesized change and “new truths” through dialogue, a process which he called “dialogical thinking” HERE.

Workshop bridges Catholic, Jewish beliefs
By Cortney Fielding

… Searching for answers to students’ probing questions, Bonar and 35 other teachers from Catholic schools across Los Angeles County participated last week in the Anti-Defamation League’s fifth-annual regional “Bearing Witness” program at the American Jewish University in West Los Angeles.

Through an intensive three-day workshop of lectures and discussions led by Jewish and Catholic leaders, scholars and Holocaust survivors, the program provides Catholic school teachers with the training and resources necessary to teach their students about anti-Semitism, the Holocaust and Catholic-Jewish relations, said Matt Freedman, an associate director at the Anti-Defamation League …

Evette Escamilla, a sixth- and seventh-grade history teacher at St. Marianne’s Catholic school in Pico Rivera, said her school valued the opportunity to be part of a dialogue that could be introduced into the classroom.

“Our principal really urged us to come and participate in this week of discussion and reflection,” she said. “It’s wonderful that we actually get to experience this.”

Escamilla said she was most intrigued by a dialogue session between a rabbi and priest, who offered up similar interpretations of events chronicled in the Christian New Testament.

After the dialectical sorcery is done and the Catholic school teachers have been processed to believe that these Talmudic Khazar swindlers are somehow related to Jesus Christ, they’re compelled to transmit this mental virus to the children back at their schools:

“The person we follow as Catholics is Jewish. We can’t ignore his Jewishness,” said Bonar. “We can’t ignore this context when we teach our own religion. Ignoring it plants these seeds of hate.”

Racist Knesset Clears Itself of Racism

July 28, 2007

The Israeli Knesset is true to the Talmudic tradition of racism and doublespeak. According to Cardinal Schönborn, Christians should see the presence of these racial supremacist haters of truth in “Israel” as a fulfillment of Biblical prophesy and cause for rejoicing.

Anthology of bigotry

Jonathan Cook

The legislation states: “the leasing of Jewish National Fund lands for the purpose of settling Jews will not be seen as unacceptable discrimination.” Before the legislators voted, the Knesset’s legal adviser, Nurit Elstein, cleared the bill of accusations that it was racist.

Israel’s parliament last week approved by an overwhelming majority the first reading of a bill to ensure that much of the country’s inhabited land remains accessible to Jewish citizens only — a move described by one leading local newspaper as turning Israel into a “racist Jewish state”.

The private member’s bill, called the Jewish National Fund Law, has received cross-party support. The first reading was approved by 64 legislators, with 16 — most of them Arab MKs — opposed. Supporters ranged from former premiere Binyamin Netanyahu, leader of the Likud Party, to Ami Ayalon, a recent challenger to head the Labour Party.

The legislation is designed to nullify the threat posed by a Supreme Court judgment, reached in 2000, that potentially opens the door to thousands of Arab families leaving the tightly controlled areas assigned to them and choosing where they live. Currently Arab citizens, who comprise a fifth of the population, are barred from buying homes in most of the country.

The move is the latest in a series of battles since Israel’s establishment in 1948 to ensure exclusive Jewish control of land through an international Zionist organisation known as the Jewish National Fund (JNF). By the time of Israel’s founding, the JNF had bought about six per cent of historic Palestine for Jewish settlement. Rather than demanding that these territories be handed over by the JNF, the new state authorities assigned the organisation a special, quasi- governmental status. The JNF was also given a significant share of the lands and property confiscated from hundreds of thousands of Palestinians expelled during the 1948 War.

Today, the state has nationalised 80 per cent of land inside Israel, and the JNF holds another 13 per cent. Neither sells land to private owners on the grounds that it is being held in trust for worldwide Jewry. Instead, they offer long-term leases on the land in their possession.

The JNF has far more power than the division of land suggests, however: its 13 per cent share is reported to include some 70 per cent of the country’s inhabited land; it effectively controls a government body known as the Israel Lands Authority that manages the 93 per cent of land owned by the state and the JNF; and it dominates committees set up to vet applicants to hundreds of rural communities.

Because the JNF charter forbids it from selling or leasing land to non-Jews, this arrangement has allowed the JNF to discriminate against Arab citizens on behalf of the government. The JNF’s control of the Israel Lands Authority and the vetting committees has ensured that Arab citizens are excluded from most of the 93 per cent of nationalised land.

Instead they have been restricted to the three per cent of Israel on which Arab communities already exist or which is privately owned by Arab citizens, though even much of this land falls under the jurisdiction of Jewish regional councils that refuse to allow Arab families to build on it. Dozens of other Arab communities are classified as illegal because the state refuses to recognise them, even though they predate Israel’s establishment.

The JNF’s stranglehold on the management of Israeli land was finally challenged in 2000 when the Supreme Court compelled the vetting committee of a rural community, Katzir, to consider the application of an Arab family, the Kaadans, for a plot of land advertised for sale. Katzir’s committee, which until the ruling had been refusing even to deal with the Kaadans’ application, subsequently rejected the family on the grounds that they were not “socially suitable”. Seven years later the court has yet to offer the Kaadans proper redress.

However, the Kaadans ruling opened the way for other Arab families to demand the right to bid for homes in communities designed only for Jews. The JNF has twice tried to market homes in a new neighbourhood of Karmiel, a town in the Galilee, but has been forced to cancel the tender on each occasion when families from a nearby Arab community, Sakhnin, applied. A petition to the Supreme Court submitted in 2004 on behalf of the Arab families has yet to be heard.

In the meantime, the JNF is reported to be considering withdrawing from the long-standing arrangement that places the Israel Lands Authority in charge of managing all public land, including JNF land. As the court ruling applies only to land managed by the Israel Lands Authority, the JNF would be still entitled to discriminate if it marketed its own housing schemes without the help of the Israel Lands Authority.

The government has been desperately seeking a way both to maintain its relationship with the JNF and not to provoke a second court ruling against it. Earlier this year it announced that land was to be offered to Jews and Arabs without discrimination. In compensation, the JNF would be given state land of equal value every time it was forced to lease land to an Arab family.

The scheme has been criticised by human rights groups which fear it will perpetuate and ultimately exacerbate discrimination by increasing the amount of land under JNF ownership: the JNF will still own the land it is leasing to Arab families but it will also be sold additional land from the state.

The new bill seeks to prevent even the government’s proposed minor concession by nullifying the Supreme Court ruling. The legislation states: “the leasing of JNF lands for the purpose of settling Jews will not be seen as unacceptable discrimination.” Before the legislators voted, the Knesset’s legal adviser, Nurit Elstein, cleared the bill of accusations that it was racist.

Arab Knesset member Wassel Taha, of the National Democratic Assembly, said: “Only an insane Knesset would pass a racist law that affirms the great land theft of 1948 and turns it into Jews- only property.”

Hegel’s Dialectic In Practice at Vatican

July 22, 2007

Latin Mass Novus Ordo Mass – Neocon Mass

Thesis antithesis – synthesis.

Italian Jewish leaders expressed relief on Thursday after the Vatican Secretary of State said the prayer for the conversion of Jews could be eliminated from the recently re-introduced Latin Mass …

… according to ANSA, Cardinal Bertone said everyone could be told to use the third version [of the prayer], introduced by Paul VI in 1970. It asks for prayers that Jews, as the chosen people, “may arrive at the fullness of redemption”. (Cardinal Bertone says prayer for conversion of Jews in Latin Mass could go, Catholic News Agency, Jul 20, 2007)

http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/new.php?n=9924

… on November 16, 1982, on request of Pope Wojtyla, a meeting presided by Ratzinger, then-Prefect of the former Holy Office, at which also took part Cardinals Baggio, Baum, Casaroli (then Secretary of State), Oddi, and Archbishop [future Cardinal] Casoria … at that meeting, a document against liturgical abuses, identified among the reasons “for the current crisis of the Church”, was also suggested, as well as, in a remote future, a synthesis “of both missals” [1962 missal and Novus Ordo missal]. That future is today less remote. The decision of Benedict XVI is thus not a step back, but a stage of the liturgical reform willed by the Council and not yet fully accomplished.

Neturei Karta: Talmud-True "Jews"

July 21, 2007

We take issue with the fact that the [Geneva Initiative] peace planners are totally ignoring G-d and His commandments in the Torah (the five books of Moses, i.e., the written law and the Talmud, i.e., the oral law) … And to unequivocally state that one who does not reckon with … the Talmud, … cannot and does not represent Judaism or the Jewish people. Truthfully stated, such an individual is not worthy of carrying the name of Judaism.

AJC, ADL Welcome Vatican Clarification

July 20, 2007

AJC Welcomes Vatican Clarification

July 19, 2007 – New York – The American Jewish Committee welcomes the Vatican’s concern for replacing a prayer calling for the conversion of Jews in the Tridentine Latin mass.

“We appreciate the statement by Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Vatican Secretary of State, making it clear that efforts will be made to replace the disturbing Good Friday prayer for Jewish conversion found in the 1962 version of the Latin Tridentine mass,” said Rabbi David Rosen, AJC’s international director of Interreligious Affairs.

Following the Pope’s “Motu Proprio” announced on July 7, there had been concern that this pre-Vatican II prayer would again be more extensively used.

“Contrary to those who presented the Motu Proprio, as a retreat from advances in Catholic-Jewish relations, this clarification in effect confirms those strides and even advances them,” said Rosen.

For well over half a century, AJC has been deeply involved in seeking to advance Catholic-Jewish relations around the world. Rabbi Rosen chairs the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations which is the official Jewish partner of the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with Jewry, chaired by Cardinal Walter Kasper.

ADL Welcomes Vatican’s Consideration To Remove Anti-Jewish Prayer

New York, NY, July 19, 2007 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) welcomed the comments of a senior Vatican official that the Good Friday Latin prayer to convert Jews could be removed from the re-introduced Latin liturgy. Holy See Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, who ranks second to Pope Benedict XVI, told reporters that the Vatican could study the possibility of substituting the prayer. “This could be decided and this would resolve all the problems,” he said.

“We are pleased that the Vatican is listening to our concerns,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. “We hope that Cardinal Bertone’s public conjectures will shortly result in putting Catholic-Jewish relations back to the positive mode we were in before all this.”

Mr. Foxman added that, “ADL has no position on the Latin Mass itself. Our concern is focused on the Good Friday Latin prayer to convert Jews, which contradicts 40 years of evolving Catholic teachings about the eternal covenant between God and the Jewish people, and the end of efforts to baptize Jews.”

ADL has called on the Holy See to re-examine its decision to sanction the anti-Jewish Good Friday prayer, which is included in a new papal decree that grants wider usage of the Latin Mass, a worship service that has been restricted since the progressive reforms of the Second Vatican Council and the landmark Nostra Aetate document in the 1960s. Because of the offensive language, Pope Paul VI in 1970 replaced the 1962 Latin prayer with a much more positive prayer for Jews.
