Benedict Meets in Cabal with the Pharisees

April 18, 2008

On Thursday, April 17, 2008, the anniversary of the night Jesus was betrayed by Judas to the Pharisees according to the Hebrew calendar, Benedict XVI met with 200 world religion leaders and thereafter met privately in cabal with today’s Pharisees whom he expressed his closeness with as they celebrate their Tamudic, counterfeit version of Passover. In his address to the Pharisees, Benedict stated that Christ’s Passover is inseparable from the Talmudic “Passover” which they celebrate and that Christians are bound to these followers of Talmud and should celebrate the Talmudic “Passover” together with them in the spirit of “mercy.” What the followers of Talmud are celebrating, however, is not mercy, as Benedict falsely implies, but vengeance, and the hope that “Esau” (Christians) will be annihilated, that Solomon’s Temple will be rebuilt and that their Gentile-smashing “Messiah” will come (Babylonian Talmud, Pesachim 5a). I anticipate that neotraditionalists will laud Benedict’s mention of Jesus during this address, oblivious to the reality that this “Jesus” Benedict alludes to is a Talmudic “Jesus”–one who mixes white with black, who calls vengeance by the name “mercy” and who betrays His sheep into the jaws of wolves telling them that it is through the wolves that salvation comes.

From the Vatican Press Office, filed under the Orwellian heading “DISCOVERING TRUTH: PURPOSE OF INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUE”:

VATICAN CITY, 17 APR 2008 (VIS) – In the Pope John Paul II Cultural Centre in Washington D.C. at 6.30 p.m. local time today, Benedict XVI met with [and addressed] some 200 representatives of five religious communities: Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Jains …

Having completed his discourse, the Pope moved on to the Pope John Paul II Cultural Centre’s Polish National Room. There he met representatives of the Jewish community to whom he consigned a Message for the Feast of the Passover, which this year begins on Saturday 19 April.

In his Passover Message, the Pope writes: “At this time of your most solemn celebration, I feel particularly close, precisely because of what ‘Nostra Aetate’ calls Christians to remember always: that the Church ‘received the revelation of the Old Testament through the people with whom God in His inexpressible mercy concluded the ancient Covenant. … In addressing myself to you I wish to re-affirm the Second Vatican Council’s teaching on Catholic- Jewish relations and reiterate the Church’s commitment to the dialogue that in the past forty years has fundamentally changed our relationship for the better.

“Because of that growth in trust and friendship”, the Holy Father adds in his Message, “Christians and Jews can rejoice together in the deep spiritual ethos of the Passover, a memorial of freedom and redemption. Each year, when we listen to the Passover story we return to that blessed night of liberation. This holy time of the year should be a call to both our communities to pursue justice, mercy, solidarity with the stranger in the land, with the widow and orphan, as Moses commanded”.

“This bond permits us Christians to celebrate alongside you, though in our own way, the Passover of Christ’s death and resurrection, which we see as inseparable from your own, for Jesus Himself said: ‘salvation is from the Jews’. Our Easter and your Pesah, while distinct and different, unite us in our common hope centred on God and His mercy”.

“With respect and friendship, I therefore ask the Jewish community to accept my Pesah greeting in a spirit of openness to the real possibilities of co- operation which we see before us as we contemplate the urgent needs of our world, and as we look with compassion upon the sufferings of millions of our brothers and sisters everywhere. Naturally, our shared hope for peace in the world embraces the Middle East and the Holy Land in particular. May the memory of God’s mercies, which Jews and Christians celebrate at this festive time, inspire all those responsible for the future of that region – where the events surrounding God’s revelation actually took place – to new efforts, and especially to new attitudes and a new purification of hearts!”

This Evening the "Elder Brothers" Cleanse their Homes of Leaven, Hopeful for our Annihilation

April 17, 2008

This evening, Thursday April 17th, after nightfall, the Orthodox Judaic fold, representatives of whom Benedict will visit in a NY synagogue the following day, will commence with the obligatory search of their households for chametz (leaven). The impetus behind this tradition according to Talmud, Pesachim 5a and Sefer ha-Roqeah sec 271, is that by removing leaven for Passover, “Israel” becomes worthy of seeing the annihilation of “Esau’s” seed. “Esau” according to Orthodox Judaic tradition is Rome and Christendom.

The following is a quotation from an article from the aish.com Chabad Lubavitch website which explains this Judaic belief. I qualify this quotation by clarifying that the Bible does not identify Edom with Rome, much less Christendom or Roman Catholicism. This is, however, what the rabbis teach, and consequently, this is the foundation for the Noahide component of certain sects of Protestantism which associates Edom and Babylon with Roman Catholicism:

Esau, who embodies the power of might and sword, will, through his descendants, give rise to the Roman Empire or “Edom” as the Bible calls it. The power or Rome clearly lay its ability to conquer, dominate and build and Empire. Even after the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, the spirit and power of Rome will perpetuate itself through the rise of the West and the Empires of Europe. And, of course, it is the Romans (as in Roman Catholic Church) that converted the world to Christianity …

As intense as the rivalry is between Isaac and Ishmael (the Jews and the Arabs) they are only half brothers. Jacob and Esau are twins with the same genetic material. This rivalry (Israel and Rome/The West) is understood to be the ultimate rivalry in history. This is nothing less than a cosmic struggle. These two — Jacob and Esau — started fighting in utero, and they’re going to be fighting throughout history. The battle continues until today and does not end until the final showdown during the messianic era. It’s not an even battle ever. Esau will always be stronger in the physical sense, but the Jewish people have inner strengths, resources and a destiny that will ultimately lead to their triumph …

A few proof texts for this rabbinic teaching:

“…And a long time after him [Jesus of Nazareth], a religion that was attributed to him spread through the Children of Esau [i.e., Rome and its empire] …” Moses Maimonides, Letter to Yemen

“They are called Edomites who move their fingers ‘here and there'” (who make the sign of the cross). (Rabbi Bechai, Kad Hakkemach 20a)

“The Nazarenes are Romans, the sons of Edom.” (Rabbi Abarbinel, Maschima Ieschua 36d)

“He who exacted vengeance from the former [oppressor] will exact vengeance from the latter. Just as in Egypt it was with blood, so with Edom it will be the same.” (Rabbi Hama bar Hanina, Pesiqta de-Rav Kahana, sec. 7, 133)

I will remind readers that rabbis who promote and are guided by this vengeful, racial-supremacist psychodrama, were honored by the “Christian Conservative” President George W. Bush two days ago, April 15, 2008 for their contributions to the world in “education,” and that the Vatican cannot stop praising and making accommodations to Orthodox rabbis whom Benedict will visit in a synagogue tomorrow, Friday, April 18, 2008. Meanwhile, the traditional Catholic liturgy is altered to suit the sensibilities of the rabbis who on this evening will remove the leaven from their homes in hopes that “Hashem,” which is to say, the so-called “Jewish” people themselves, will annihilate us.
