… Port of Spain Archbishop Edward Gilbert was reported to have [likened Trinidad and Tobago politicians to Jews] during a Jubilee Mass held October 24 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church in San Fernando to celebrate the 225th anniversary of the Roman Catholic mission there.
“The Jews were compassionate and caring for their own, they were compassionate and caring to the people of their nation, to the people of their race, to the people of their ethnic communities. However, that wasn’t enough for Jesus. Jesus took that teaching and universalized it,” Archbishop Gilbert told his congregation, according to a news report. “In many cases in this country, there are people who love one another, who are compassionate, but they have the mindset of the original Jewish people. They are good to their own … but they have not universalized the concept of love.”
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, said the archbishop’s statements as reported were “a disturbing repackaging of ancient anti-Jewish canards and supersessionist beliefs.”
“Archbishop Gilbert devalues Judaism over and against Christianity,” said Mr. Foxman. “The false notion that Jews only care about themselves and don’t care enough about others is one of the major pillars of classical anti-Semitism.”
“While the Catholic Church has made tremendous strides in countering anti-Jewish notions such as the belief that the advent of Christianity superseded Judaism, Archbishop Gilbert’s statements show that he has not internalized the important reforms of Vatican II.”
I agree that Pope Foxman is deeply disturbed and I would be happy to illustrate one of the many reasons why.
Above we see Pope Foxman in his edict to the Goyim proclaim that it’s a damnable “major pillar of classical anti-Semitism” to recognize the fact that Judaism is not a universal religion but a tribal religion which teaches its adherents to favor the tribe over outsiders.
But over here, in Foxman’s inter-office memo to the tribe not meant for Goy eyes to see, Foxman admonishes the tribe to not love universally because to do so is “Judaism lite” which “brushes past the theological significance of acting on behalf of Jews.”
“What I’ve been critical of is those who have sold Judaism as, ‘All you have to do is love universally and that’s Judaism,’ ” Foxman said. “It’s not—it’s ersatz Judaism. It’s Judaism lite.” It also, Foxman added pointedly, has the potential to elevate political action on behalf of others while brushing past the theological significance of acting on behalf of Jews.
Tikkun Olam is a Tribal, not Universal, Concept
Evidently, Pope Foxman is deeply disturbed because he wants to enforce his tribal racket while defining it a damnable heresy for any outsider to recognize that fact. To paraphrase St. Augustine, by doing so, his madness, not innocence, is manifest.
I have often marveled at the word-magic I’ve read in pseudo-scholarly post-graduate volumes as they circle around the white elephant of Judaic tribalism (euphemized as “particularism”) for hundreds of pages dedicated to mesmerizing the reader into the false belief that Judaism is a universal, progressive, enlightened religion.
The deeply disturbing part of it is the deception and browbeating of observers into not acknowledging what is plain before their eyes–that Judaism is the most un-universal religion in existence, if not in history. Every sane person knows it. Everyone who has lived among followers of the rabbis has experienced it. There are individual exceptions among “Jews,” but as Foxman says in his inter-office memo, they are not really living according to true Judaism.
That this even has to be decoded is a testament to the state of degradation we’ve descended to. Of course Judaism is tribal; the word plainly means tribe-of-Judah-ism. It’s about sustaining the tribe of counterfeit Judah at all costs. It’s not about loving and serving God; loving ones non-Judaic neighbor as oneself or any such universal value.
Pray for Pope Foxman that God will relieve him of his deeply disturbed state and that he will cease his attempts to inculcate the same in us. Until he is miraculously healed, tell your friends, family and clergy to ignore the disturbed ravings of the self-chosen Pope Foxman.
