Rabbi, "Holocaust Scholar" Kosher Stamps John Paul II Beatification

January 17, 2011

Rabbi Michael Berenbaum’s “Holocaust” fundamentalist absolutism stands to benefit greatly from a JPII beatification.

“As I observe young people in relativistic societies seeking an absolute for morals and values, they now can view the Holocaust as the transcendental move away from the relativistic, and up into the absolute where the Holocaust confronts absolute Evil [=Nazism] and thus find fundamental values.” (Rabbi Michael Berenbaum, speaking at Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, January 26-28, 2000)

As I said at the Mass celebrated in 1979 at Brzezinka near Auschwitz: “I kneel at this Golgotha of the modern world” (Pope John Paul II)

Holocaust scholar pays tribute to Pope John Paul

Catholic World News
January 17, 2011

Michael Berenbaum, a rabbi and Holocaust scholar, has praised the Vatican announcement of Pope John Paul II’s beatification.

“Jews have no right to register an opinion on whom the Roman Catholic Church beautifies [sic] and whom it considers a saint,” he writes. “Nevertheless, this has not stopped us from asserting our disapproval of the efforts to canonize Pope Pius XII, the man who served as Pope during the Holocaust.”

“Though I have no vote,” he concludes, “were I to have [a] vote, I would be honored to consider Pope John Paul II a saint, not a saint without flaws, or human fallibility but a saint nevertheless.”

Pius XII, Bishop Williamson Media Controversies are Theatre for Peasants, No Impediment to ‘Dialogue’

January 22, 2010

For all his insight, the author will not acknowledge that the rabbis bluff when they threaten to withdraw from ‘dialogue’–the vehicle by which their nefarious goals against the Church are advanced–or that the rabbis’ helpers in the establishment press have interests other than selling newspapers.

Exaggerations for Dubious Ends

Edward Pentin – NCR

Friday, January 22, 2010

After a week in which Pope Benedict XVI visited the Great Synagogue of Rome and the Vatican and the Rabbinate of Israel held their regular annual meeting, Catholic-Jewish relations are looking considerably healthy – much more so than it might appear in some of the mass media.

As mentioned in an earlier post, whatever the controversies affecting the dialogue, relations usually continue much as they did before, largely thanks – as the Holy Father noted in his synagogue address – to advances in dialogue emanating from the Second Vatican Council’s declaration Nostra Aetate.

Rabbi David Rosen, director of the American Jewish Committee’s Department for Interreligious Affairs, called the Pope’s visit to Rome’s synagogue “a genuine milestone, putting many fears and suspicions to rest and reinvigorating the historic transformation of this relationship in our times.” He noted what he called a warm, impressive and festive atmosphere which he said was a “public expression of already well established friendships between Catholic and Jewish leadership present.”

Of course, the well trodden controversies over Pius XII, Richard Williamson and the Good Friday prayer of the Traditional Latin Mass have, rightly or wrongly, been of real concern to many Jews. Yet their real impact on dialogue is actually minor. During this week’s bilateral commission between the Vatican and Rabbinate of Israel – a meeting that included a number of very senior Judaic and Church leaders – the dispute over Pius was never raised. More important were the areas the two faiths hold in common.

“These controversies are important for the mass media, but not for our dialogue,” said Father Norbert Hoffman, the Secretary of the Vatican Commission on Religious Relations with Judaism. ”We didn’t talk about the Pius matter at all during this [commission] meeting. Of course this issue exists but it doesn’t exist in the sense that the media think it would be on the table.” He added the final assessment of the delegation of the Chief Rabbinate was that the Pope’s visit to the synagogue was “very successful.”

Earlier this week, the [Judaic advocate of dungeon sentences for non-believers of “Holocaust” dogmas who is located in France], Bernard-Henri Lévy, denounced what he said were media caricatures of Benedict XVI and Pius XII in their dealings with Jews, saying their words and deeds belied their media portrayals.

All of which further points to what many have long suspected: that certain individuals and groups, not only within the mass media but elsewhere, are sadly exaggerating and exploiting Catholic-Jewish differences to suit their own ends, whether it be to sell newspapers or, more seriously, for a variety of nefarious goals directed against the Church.

More on Pope’s Pilgrimage to Yad Vashem

March 7, 2009

It appears that Benedict will indeed make the obligatory pilgrimage to the Yad Vashem Temple (“Hall of Remembrance”) and take part in the “Holocaust” liturgy. Photos and video of the pope sanctifying the “six million,” offering a wreath to the “Holocaust” idol, lighting the “remembrance fire,” will then be broadcast around the world in yet another papal exaltation of Holocaustolatry and mockery of Calvary.

Pope ‘won’t visit Shoah museum’

Benedict to skip WWII ‘silence’ pope exhibit

2009-03-06 14:41

(ANSA) – Vatican City, March 6 – Pope Benedict XVI’s trip to the Holy land in May will not take in Israel’s Holocaust museum where WWII pope Pius XII is accused of silence on the Holocaust, the Israeli ambassador to the Holy See told ANSA Friday.

Speaking after reports that the Pius XII exhibit might be changed ahead of the May 8-15 trip, Ambassador Mordechai Levy said Benedict would attend a memorial ceremony at the Yad Vashem site but would not visit the museum itself.

Levy said the pope, accompanied by Israeli President Shimon Peres, would light a remembrance fire and make a speech …

So according to reports, Benedict will sanctify the Yad Vashem Temple, but will not visit the Yad Vashem museum. He apparently protests slander against Pius XII while sanctifying a false religion which threatens to replace Calvary. See: Bad Advice from the Pope

But look at this:

… Earlier on Friday, Catholic sources in Jerusalem voiced hope the Pius ‘silence’ caption could be changed to avoid embarrassing Benedict.

They were speaking after the announcement of a debate on the controversial pope, who is on track to become a saint, at Yad Vashem on Sunday and Monday.

The symposium, which will take place largely behind closed doors, will look at Pius in the light of the latest historical evidence.

Organisers say the conference will see ”if there is something new or something which has to be completely revised” in light of recent research by Jewish and Catholic scholars …

My goodness. Could it be that the Vatican and Yad Vashem might engage in that wicked practice: historical debate in light of new evidence to determine if something needs to be revised–revisionism–the very “crime” that Bishop Williamson is threatened with banishment and imprisonment for?

You see, Pius XII’s “silence” has not yet been canonized as the “Six Million” and the “Execution Gas Chambers” have been. Speak up while you have the chance. Once the Sanhedrin has ruled, anyone who speaks contrary is anathema.

But I ask people to have true perspective on this. The establishment has framed the matter so that Pius XII’s legacy and prospects as a canonized saint will stand or fall based entirely upon whether he was “good for the ‘Jews'” (the principle all things are judged by today). There has been no serious discussion on whether Pius XII could have done more for the Christians suffering under “Uncle Joe” Stalin, and other criteria that a pope or saint would traditionally be judged by.

A Proper Defense of Pope Pius XII Against the "Holocaust" Inquisition

February 10, 2009

All books from establishment publishing houses purported to defend Pius XII against the false charges of the “Holocaust” Inquisition are woefully inadequate. Some of them do more harm than good. Rabbi Dalin, in typical rabbi style, lends his sponsorship to Pius XII in exchange for the opportunity to seed confusion related to the Herzl-Pius X meeting into the Catholic camp.

I had much time to spend reading last month and I read Professor Robert Faurisson’s book, Pope Pius XII’s Revisionism, very carefully. I highly recommend this book which tackles the matter of Pius XII’s W.W.II “silence” outside of the rigged framework that all the other books are locked into, i.e. “was Pius XII good for the ‘Jews’.” Professor Faurisson documents that Pius XII did indeed save many Judaic persons at great risk to himself and the Church, but this is only a minor part of the study. The book primarily focuses on the fact that during W.W.II, Pius XII was bombarded with outrageous atrocity propaganda and asked to condemn countless fabricated atrocities and that he was skeptical of much of it, and for good reason. I will say no more than this, other than to restate that this is the only book worth reading on the topic because it’s the only book that approaches the matter without deference to “Holocaust” dogmas. All of the other books take the claims of the “Holocaust” industry as Gospel and build their case upon that shoddy foundation.

Primary Consideration for Sainthood: Were They Good For "The Jews"

May 12, 2007

Abe Foxman sez:

“While we understand that the process of sainthood is an internal matter for the Church, the issue of what Pius XII did or did not do to help save Jews during the Holocaust is a profound question that must be resolved first for the sake of the Jewish-Catholic relationship.”

http://www.adl.org/PresRele/VaticanJewish_96/5048_96.htm

In essence, Foxman is saying that he realizes that the process of sainthood is an internal matter for the Church, but he’s making it his business anyway. And his business is framing everything under the sun in the context of how it serves “The Jews.” This is the benefit yielded from decades of Catholic-Judaic dialog with psychopaths such as Foxman–Catholic saints are now judged primarily upon the criteria of how good they were for “The Jews.” “Saint” Escriva: good; Saint Simon of Trent: bad. No reciprocal revision of Judaic hagiography is taking place nor is it expected to. This is what Foxman threatens is at stake? He can keep it.

Could you imagine the rabbis admitting to, and making amends for, the genocidal racism of their great saint, Rabbi Simon ben Yohai and his tenet, “even the best of the Gentiles should be killed”? But here is Foxman telling us that Pius XII is not worthy of sainthood because he didn’t do enough to stop an imaginary “genocide” of “The Jews.”

Pius XII certainly did take actions to relieve Judaic persons of the persecutions that truly were taking place. It could be said that he did as least as much for Judaics as he did for Christians who were being slaughtered and starved to death in Russia prior to and during WWII, and in Europe during and after the war. But Christian casualties don’t concern Foxman. They’re not “Jews.” And of course, probing too deeply into that matter could reveal the ugly fact that there are many “Jews” to be blamed for those Christian casualties. Better to keep the heat on the Catholics, Foxman reckons.

But that’s not the way I see it. I figure, if Foxman has set the standard for Christian sainthood based upon how good the candidate was for “The Jews” during WWII, then that standard is at least as fair a gauge to judge his fellow Zionist power brokers by. So then, the question must be asked, what heroic actions were taking place on the part of Zionist leadership during WWII for people of Judaic background? I seem to recall that many of them were cooperating with Nazi leadership and that they didn’t care much to stop the Nazi deportation program because it served their purpose–namely, moving “The Jews” from Europe to Palestine to set up a “Jewish” state. This claim may seem incredible to some but it’s well documented:

http://www.amazon.com/51-Documents-Zionist-Collaboration-Nazis/dp/1569802351

The truth is that Foxman himself and his ilk aren’t very good for Judaic persons, not in their intent, and certainly not in the association they create between their insane chutzpah and “Jewishness.”

Catholics should know, however, that this slander campaign against Pius XII did not begin with Abe Foxman. It originates from one who is on the fast track to kosher sainthood:

New research reveals rare criticism from within the Vatican of Holocaust-era pope Pius XII for his silence in the face of the destruction of European Jewry …

Prof. Dina Porat, who headed the Project for the Study of Anti-Semitism at Tel Aviv University, centered her research on criticism of Pius XII from the Papal Nuncio Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, who 15 years later became Pope John XXIII. (Amiram Barkat, Haaretz, 01/12/2006)
