Pope Benedict’s ‘Noahide Law’ Commission Mocks Victims of Talmudic Economics

April 1, 2012
Updated

The theme of this the 11th meeting of the bilateral commission [of the Chief Rabbinate of Counterfeit Israel and the ‘Holy’ See’s Commission for Religious Relations with ‘The Jews’] was titled “Religious perspectives on the current financial crisis: vision for a just economic order” … Papers on the theme were provided by Dr. Meir Tamari, former chief economist of the Bank of Israel …”

Here are some relevant writings from Rabbi Dr. Meir Tamari, former chief economist of the Bank of Counterfeit Israel, whose ‘vision’ the Vatican has turned to for direction towards ‘a just economic order’:

All Jewish sources, however, show that Judaism does not see anything intrinsically wrong with lending money at interest. On the contrary, it is a perfectly normal and beneficial part of economic activity, like the supply of other forms of capital.” (Rabbi Meir Tamari, With All Your Possessions: Jewish Ethics and Economic Life, p. 167

Perhaps the best proof that [according to rabbinic Judaism] taking interest is not regarded as being evil per se, but rather only forbidden because the Torah said so, is the rule that while one may not take interest from other Jews, it is permitted in regard to non-Jews. (Rabbi Meir Tamari, The challenge of wealth: a Jewish perspective on earning and spending money)

“… it is essential to remember that there exist a religious obligation to make interest-free loans available to other Jews … [however,] one may lend money at interest to non-Jews.” (Rabbi Meir Tamari, In the marketplace: Jewish business ethics)

Financial economists may find Meir Tamari’s treatment of interest and profits rather unsatisfactory, and his treatment of Scripture and the Mishnah may also be seen as controversial. One interesting point is the distinction between financial dealings between Jews, where interest is not permissible, and between Jews and Gentiles where it is, the justification for this being in Deutronomy. Maimonides interpreted the Hebrew word tashikh, you may charge a foreigner interest, as you shall charge a gentile interest. It was this that justified Jews becoming involved in moneylending throughout medieval Europe and instrumental in the development of modern banking practice. While relations between Jews and Christians were kept on a business footing, those within the Jewish communities were based on exchanging favours and mutual trust in the absence of interest based transactions. This discriminatory treatment of Jews and Gentiles may be criticised by non-Jews, but it served to strengthen bonds within Judaism and the feeling of a common identity. (Rodney Wilson, “Comparitive Religious Thought on Economic Behavior and Financial Transactions,” Journal of the Association of Christian Economists)

http://christian-economists.org.uk/jour_23.pdf

The masses of Jewish migrants from Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries had neither the assets for collateral nor the personal history of financial activity necessary for recourse to the banking systems of their new host societies. Their astonishing economic development would have been totally different to what actually materialized, were it not for the existence of Jewish free loan societies in every country. (Rabbi Meir Tamari, “‘Both a Lender and a Borrower Be:’ The Challenge of Money)

http://www.ouisrael.org/tidbits/detail/BOTH-A-LENDER-AND-A-BORROWER-BE-part-one-THE-CHALLENGE-OF-MONEY

The corollary is that the astonishing decline in wealth and increase in indebtedness of non-Judaic nations and individuals which has accompanied the astonishing “economic development” of East European ‘Jews’ would have been “totally different” if it had not been for predatory lending practices which rabbinic teaching readily permits against non-‘Jews’ as Rabbi Dr. Meir Tamari explains above.

The Bilateral Commission of the Chief Rabbinate of Counterfeit Israel and the ‘Holy’ See’s Commission for Religious Relations with ‘The Jews’ has issued a statement addressing the present world financial catastrophe. This bilateral commission recognized the unbiblical, talmudic ‘Noahide laws’ in 2007 according to which, Christian ‘idolators’ (believers in the Divinity of Jesus Christ and Trinity) should be executed by decapitation.

If you believe that a joint Vatican-Chief Rabbinate of Counterfeit Israel plan for economic reform will bring about any godly change in events, there’s a dead ‘Messiah’ in Brooklyn they probably could also sell you.

The rabbinic canon provides the rationalization for the kind of financial predation witnessed throughout the world today. Moreover, as Thomas Jefferson aptly noted, the rabbis’ tradition is practically void and valueless as a reference for ethics and morality.

As readers of symbols we note that the seventh bilateral meeting rolled out the so-called ‘Noahide laws’ and the eleventh meeting rolls out a so-called ‘ethical economic order.’

COMMISSION FOR RELIGIOUS RELATIONS WITH THE JEWS
BILATERAL COMMISSION MEETING
OF THE DELEGATIONS OF THE CHIEF RABBINATE OF ISRAEL AND
THE HOLY SEE’S COMMISSION
FOR RELIGIOUS RELATIONS WITH THE JEWS
(Rome, March 27-29, 2012; Nissan 4-6, 5772)

Joint Statement

1. The Jewish co-chair Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen opened the meeting, giving thanks to God for the historic transformation in Catholic-Jewish relations since the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) and for the establishment of the bilateral commission of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and the Holy See, after the historic visit of Pope John Paul II to Israel.

Cardinal Peter Turkson, the new Catholic co-chair, responded paying tribute to his predecessor Cardinal Jorge Mejía and welcomed the delegations, in particular those who had just joined the bilateral commission. Cardinal Mejía together with Cardinal Cottier, as the former senior members of the Catholic delegation, accompanied by Cardinal Kurt Koch, President of the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, visited with the delegations and expressed their joy at the continuity of this work as a blessing for both communities and for humanity.
2. The theme of this the 11th meeting of the bilateral commission was titled “Religious perspectives on the current financial crisis: vision for a just economic order”. The special guest on the first evening was Prof. Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, President of the Vatican’s Istituto per le Opere di Religione, who provided an analysis of the causes of the financial crisis and shared thoughts on possible ways forward. Papers on the theme were provided by Dr. Meir Tamari, former chief economist of the Bank of Israel, and Prof. Stefano Zamagni from the Economic Science Department of the University of Bologna.
3. Following from the presentations and discussion, the following points were highlighted:-
While many factors contributed to the financial crisis, at its roots lies a crisis of moral values in which the importance of having, reflected in a culture of greed, eclipsed the importance of being; and where the value of truth reflected in honesty and transparency was sorely lacking in economic activity.
4. At the heart of Jewish and Catholic visions for a just economic order is the affirmation of the sovereignity and providence of the Creator of the world with whom all wealth originates and which is given to humankind as a gift for the common good.
5. Accordingly, the purpose of an economic order is to serve the wellbeing of society, affirming the human dignity of all people, each created in the Divine Image. While this concept of dignity affirms the value of the person, it is antithetical to egocentricity. Rather, it requires the promotion of the wellbeing of the individual in relation to community and society, emphasizing human obligations and responsibilities accordingly and thereby affirming human solidarity and fraternity.
This posits the obligation to guarantee certain basic human needs, such as the protection of life, sustenance, clothing, housing, health, education and employment.
Particular attention must therefore be given to the vulnerable – the poor, the orphan, the widow the sick and disabled; and the stranger, which in today’s society is particularly relevant to migrant and foreign workers – whose condition serves as a measure of the moral health of society or lack thereof, and the degree of solidarity within it.
6. Furthermore, just as the Divine gift of wealth places obligations upon the recipient in relation to those less fortunate materially; similarly countries with developed economies have the obligation to recognize their responsibilities and duties towards countries and societies in need – especially in this era of globalization.
7. Concepts highlighted for the promotion of a more just economic order included:
– the universal destination of the goods of the earth; a culture of “enough” that implies a degree of self-limitation and modesty; responsible stewardship; an ethical system of allocation of resources and priorities; and the critical importance of honesty, transparency, gratuitousness and accountability.
8. Just as the crisis has required partial remission of debts on national and international levels, there is a need to extend this to families and individuals for their economic self-rehabilitation.
9. The members of the bilateral commission underscored the role that the faith communities must play in contributing to a responsible economic order and the importance of their engagement by government, educational institutions, and the media, to this end.
10. In addition to the ethical wisdom drawn from our spiritual heritages, religious communities are an integral part of civil society, which must play a central role together with politics and business, in ensuring the subsidiarity necessary for a just social and economic order.
11. Furthermore the crisis has revealed the profound lack of the ethical component in economic thinking. Hence, it is imperative that institutes and academies of economic studies and policy formation include ethical training in their curricula, similar to that which has developed in recent years in the field of medical ethics; and also ethical counselling to decision makers on a national and international level.
12. The meeting concluded with prayer to the Source of all blessing that the words of the Psalmist will be fulfilled
“Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed (each other).
Truth shall spring out of the earth and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Yea, the Lord shall give (that which is) good; and our land shall yield her increase.
Righteousness shall go before Him; and shall set (us) in the way of His steps”
(Ps 85,11-14).

The Pope’s Guest Pharisee Lies to Synod

October 13, 2010

The below is an outright lie. There is no guarantee of equality for Christians or any non-Judaic citizens under Israeli law which Israel Shahak described as, “a weird mixture of advanced democracy and retrogressive discrimination, combined with clumsy attempts to hide the discriminatory reality.” However, if Shahak was alive today, I believe his “advanced democracy” assessment would be tempered further by an acknowledgment of the ascendancy of racial supremacist Orthodox Judaism in the Israeli state.

According to Rabbi Rosen’s stated standard (which he apparently intends to be applied only to Arab nations), Israeli society is sick.

“The degree to which Christians enjoy civil and religious rights and liberties testifies to the health or infirmity of the respective societies in the Middle East,” said Rosen, adding that In Israel Christians “enjoy full franchise and equality before the law.”

Rabbi David Rosen only Jewish speaker at Vatican Special Synod on the Middle East

EJP – Oct 13, 2010

ROME (EJP)—Rabbi David Rosen, the American Jewish Committee’s international director of interreligious affairs, was Wednesday the only Jewish speaker at a two-week Vatican Special Synod of Catholic leaders on the Middle East.
In his speech, he outlined a Jewish perspective on the state of Christianity and Jewish-Christian relations in Israel.

While this is not the first time a rabbi adresses a Vatican Synod it is the first time a Jewish representative has been asked to address a topic of social and political concern and sensitivity, the AJC said.

Hailing the “blessed transformation” of the relationship between the two faiths over the past 50 years, Rosen stressed that the strongest Jewish-Christian relationships are in the United States.

“The U.S. boasts literally dozens of academic institutions for Christian-Jewish studies and relations, while there are perhaps only three in the rest of the world,” he said.

In contrast, a major hurdle to deepening mutual understanding is the lack of opportunities for Christian-Jewish interaction around the world.

“I confess to having been surprised to find Catholic clergy, and sometimes even hierarchy from some countries, not only ignorant about contemporary Judaism but often even about Nostra Aetate itself,” Rosen said.

At the same time, he noted what he called “widespread ignorance” about Christianity in the Jewish world, notably in Israel.

“Until recently most of Israeli society has been quite unaware of the profound changes in Catholic-Jewish relations,” said Rosen, though he acknowledged that “this situation has begun to alter significantly in the last decade.”

Rosen said the improvement was due firstly to Pope John Paul II’s visit in 2000, and, secondly, to the influx of Christians, part of the wave of immigrants from the former Soviet Union, that doubled the Christian population in Israel.

Initiatives have flourished with “dozens of bodies promoting interreligious encounter, dialogue and studies in Israel, and the Christian presence in these, which include Jews and Muslims in Israel, is disproportionate and highly significant,” said Rosen.

“The wellbeing of Christian communities in the Middle East is nothing less than a kind of barometer,” he said. “The degree to which Christians enjoy civil and religious rights and liberties testifies to the health or infirmity of the respective societies in the Middle East,” said Rosen, adding that In Israel Christians “enjoy full franchise and equality before the law.”

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.

Papal-Rabbinic Fraud at the Rome Synagogue January 2010

January 20, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI at the Synagogue of Rome, January 17, 2009 with Rabbis Riccardo Di Segni and Yashuv Cohen

On January 17, 2009 Benedict XVI took center stage in a spectacular media fraud in the synagogue of Rome calculated to: 1. make Christians believe that the Pharisaic/Talmudic/Kabbalistic tradition which Jesus warned His followers to beware of (Matt. 16;12) is of God 2. yoke Catholics to the followers of that anti-God tradition 3. exalt the idol of “The Holocaust” while ostensibly warning against idolatry 4. prop up an ideology rooted in the idolatry of men, race, and State while ostensibly warning against ideologies, rooted in the idolatry of man, race, and State. This hardly addresses the complexities of the multifaceted fraud which took place in that synagogue and was broadcast across the world. The text of this fraud can be read here:

Pictured above with Pope Benedict XVI is the Chief Rabbi of Rome, Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni who, like all Orthodox rabbis, is a peddler of the anti-Christian, racist, dual-covenant, Talmudic system of double-standards, the so called “Noahide Laws.” Rabbi Di Segni also recently republished the Jesus Christ mocking, traditional Judaic tract, the “Toledoth Jeshu,” under the misleading title, The Gospel of the Ghetto. With the help of many Catholic prelates and the pope himself, Rabbi DiSegni can confidently perpetrate the fraud that the “Toledoth Jeshu” is a product of Christian persecution, a lie which is refuted here:

The Ancient Origins of Blasphemous Israeli Comedy

Also pictured above with Benedict XVI is Israeli Chief Rabbinate delegate to the Holy See, Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen. Rabbi Yashuv Cohen is a cosigner of a joint Chief Rabbinate-Holy See document which fraudulently identifies the Talmudic “Noahide Laws” as biblical here:

Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen is a militant Zionist disciple of Rabbi Kook as documented here:

More on the Synod Rabbi

Also present but not shown in the picture above was Rabbi Papal Knight David Rosen, also a signer of the above mentioned “Noahide Law” document. One of Rabbi Rosen’s anti-Gospel projects is getting Christians to have a positive view of Pharisees and Pharisaism as documented here:

Papal Rabbi-Knight David Rosen Wants to Change What Christians Believe About the Pharisees

Contrary to what the pope and the rabbis suggest, the blessings of Psalms 126 and 133 (Psalm 126 evidently chosen to make modern Zionism seem providential) do not apply to peddlers of Talmudism, Zionism, Holocaustolatry and the phony “Noahide Laws.”

Beware the leaven of the Pharisees rising in Rome.

Queen Elizabeth Names AJC’s Rabbi David Rosen Commander of British Empire

January 3, 2010 – New York – Rabbi David Rosen, AJC’s International Director of Interreligious Affairs, has been awarded the Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in her prestigious New Years honors list.

The CBE, one of Great Britain’s highest honors, was given to Rabbi Rosen in recognition of his interfaith relations work in the Middle East, and between the UK and Israel. He is the first Orthodox rabbi to receive the CBE.

“I feel very honored,” said the British-born Rabbi Rosen from his home in Jerusalem. “It’s not just a personal tribute but to all those before me and with me who work to promote a better world through deeper understanding and cooperation between religions.”

In addition to his role at AJC, where he also serves as Director of the Heilbrunn Institute for International Interreligious Understanding, Rabbi Rosen is an Honorary Advisor on Interfaith Relations to the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. He also was a member of the permanent Bilateral Commission of the State of Israel and the Holy See that established bilateral relations between Israel and the Vatican.

In November 2005, Rabbi Rosen was named by Pope Benedict XVI a Papal Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great for his outstanding contributions to promoting Catholic-Jewish reconciliation. It was the first time this Vatican honor was given to an Orthodox rabbi.

“All of us at AJC are delighted that the Queen has recognized Rabbi Rosen’s achievements in advancing international interfaith understanding,” said AJC Executive Director David Harris. “Wherever Rabbi Rosen travels, and he does so extensively, he engages those who aspire to a world where religion is seen as a force for good, not evil.”

Among his other path-breaking interreligious initiatives on behalf of AJC, last year Rabbi Rosen hosted at AJC headquarters in New York a major international Hindu-Jewish Summit, further deepening ties between the two faith groups. He also was key to the first visit to Israel, in 2007, of Muslim leadership from India.

Jews ask pope for Holocaust studies in schools

Thu Mar 12, 2009

By Philip Pullella – Reuters

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Israel’s religious leaders asked Pope Benedict on Thursday to make Holocaust studies a required subject in Catholic schools, saying it could help combat anti-Semitism in future generations.

The two sides resumed a dialogue that was interrupted by the case of a Holocaust-denying bishop, which brought Catholic-Jewish relations to their lowest point in half a century.

The Israelis also asked that the Vatican take a strong stand against the draft final declaration of next month’s U.N. conference on racism, a statement some countries view as hostile to Israel.

“May we suggest for your consideration that the history and the moral import of the Shoah … become a required subject for inclusion in the curriculum of students at all Catholic schools the world over,” Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen asked the pope during a meeting at the Vatican, using the Hebrew word for Holocaust.

Cohen, who is chief rabbi of Haifa, said such a move would “reinforce your strong stand against Holocaust denial and declaring anti-Semitism as a sin against God.”

Rabbi David Rosen, International Director of Interreligious Affairs for the American Jewish Congress, told reporters afterwards: “I hope a recommendation (from the pope on Holocaust studies in Catholic schools) will come out of this latest crisis. That will be a silver lining to the cloud.”

The meeting between representatives of Israel’s chief Rabbinate and Vatican officials on Wednesday and Thursday was to have taken place last month but was postponed by the Jewish side because of the controversy over Bishop Richard Williamson.

On January 24, Benedict lifted the excommunication of Williamson and three other traditionalist bishops to try to heal a 20-year-old rift that began when they were thrown out of the Church for being ordained without permission. Williamson has said he believed there were no gas chambers and that no more than 300,000 Jews perished in Nazi concentration camps, compared with the figure of 6 million accepted by mainstream historians.

The pope has since made several major declarations to repudiate Williamson’s views and condemn anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.

On Thursday, Vatican officials announced Benedict would pay a visit to Rome’s main synagogue in the autumn. “There’s no firm date fixed yet,” the chief Vatican spokesman, Father Federico Lombardi, told Italian media.

The Jewish delegation also asked the pope to instruct Vatican diplomats to take a strong stand against the current draft of the final statement of the U.N. Conference on Racism due to be held in Geneva April 20-24, known as Durban II.

The Vatican has said it will attend the conference but hoped for a change in the wording of its final declaration. Both Italy and the United States have said they will not attend unless there is a change of wording.

Walter Kasper Clarifies Intention of Benedict’s Latin Prayer for the Jews to Chief Pharisee David Rosen

February 17, 2008

Cardinal Walter Kasper, President of the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, has written a letter clarifying the intention of the new Good Friday prayer for the Jews at the request of the Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” and papal knight, David Rosen of which I present some excerpts. First, we see it implied by a top Vatican prelate that the Scripture-based traditional Latin Good Friday prayer for the Jews was “language of contempt” while it is stated that the new prayer expresses an intention of “mutual respect in respective otherness”:

“To give witness of our Christian faith, as is expressed in the reformulated prayer, is therefore in no way a return to the language of contempt but an expression of mutual respect in our respective otherness.”

What is the intention of the reformulated prayer?

The reformulated text no longer speaks about the conversion of the Jews, as some Jewish critics wrongly affirm. The text is a prayer inspired by St. Paul’s letter to the Romans, chapter 11, which is the very text which speaks of the unbroken covenant. It takes up Paul’s eschatological hope that at the end of times all Israel will be saved. As a prayer the text lays all in the hands of God and not in ours. It says nothing about the how and when. Therefore there is nothing about missionary activities, by which we may take Israel’s salvation in our own hands. We leave all in the hands of the one who is the only master and Lord of history.

Does this prayer constitute any change in the Vatican’s policy towards the elder brothers?

It is absolutely not the intention of anyone in the Roman Curia to step back and interrupt our fruitful dialogue, which for us is irreversible …(Letter from Cardinal Walter Kasper, President of the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, to Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” David Rosen)

There you have it, not from some hack lay theologian, but from one of the highest ranking Vatican prelates, expert in Benedict’s theology of the “elder brothers” and Benedict’s liaison to the Pharisees. If this anti-Gospel intention resonates with you, then sign up here to defend it:

Defend the Dogma, Defend the Holy Father!

And it’s worth noting that one of Benedict’s first actions as Pope was to make the self-described proud Pharisee, Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” David Rosen, whom this letter is addressed to, a papal knight.

Walter Kasper Clarifies Intention of Benedict’s Latin Prayer for the Jews to Chief Pharisee David Rosen

February 17, 2008

Cardinal Walter Kasper, President of the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, has written a letter clarifying the intention of the new Good Friday prayer for the Jews at the request of the Chief Rabbi of “Israel,” and papal knight, David Rosen of which I present some excerpts. First, we see it implied by a top Vatican prelate that the Scripture-based traditional Latin Good Friday prayer for the Jews was “language of contempt” while it is stated that the new prayer expresses an intention of “mutual respect in respective otherness”:

“To give witness of our Christian faith, as is expressed in the reformulated prayer, is therefore in no way a return to the language of contempt but an expression of mutual respect in our respective otherness.”
