Pope Francis denounced the “depraved hatred” behind a wave of anti-Semitic attacks in parts of the world and said interfaith dialogue can help counter it.I think that the Pope is signaling that he is being held hostage by heretics.
Francis met Friday with a delegation of the American Jewish Committee and praised their longstanding good relations.
He lamented that their meeting was taking place amid the spread of a “climate of wickedness and fury, in which an excessive and depraved hatred is taking root.”
And he warned that for Christians, any form of anti-Semitism is “a rejection of one’s own origins, a complete contradiction.”
The audience occurred days after Francis responded to longstanding requests from Jewish groups to open the Vatican archives of its World War II-era pope, Pius XII, who has faced accusations of having failed to speak out enough against the Holocaust.
There is no "wave of anti-Semitic attacks". Most of what Jews complain about have turned out to be hoaxes, like the Jussie Smollett hoax.
Moslems hate the Jews, but that has been going on for a millennium. It is largely because of Jews that Moslems have been invited into Christian countries. If hatred is taking root, it is because Jews have invited Moslems to take root in Christian countries.
Saying that anti-Semitism is a rejection of one’s own origins is like saying anti-monarchy is a rejection of one’s own origins. The American constitutional govt grew out of a rejection of British monarchy, and Christianity grew out of a rejection of Judaism.
Why would one religion ever worry about offending another religion? Catholicism is supposed to the universal religion, and if you believe that, then Judaism certainly is not.
An anonymous Trump-supporting Jew writes:
That’s a big difference between Muslims and Jews. Jews take care of other Jews. Any Jew anywhere in the world is welcome to move to Israel. But Islamic nations want nothing to do with taking in Muslim refugees. And nearly all of those Muslim refugees exist because of Muslims fighting wars with other Muslims. Christian nations have to take in Muslims refuges because Muslim nations won’t step up to the plate for their own people.I pointed out that the Democrat House resolution essentially says that it is anti-Semitic for non-Jews to express opinions like this. He deleted my comment, and posted:
And this is one of the major reasons why Jews have traditionally supported Israel.
If you hate Jews so much, go read another blogThis is bizarre, but reflects common Jewish opinions. Almost anything non-Jews say about Jews will be branded Jew-hatred by Jews. Even if you agree with Jewish conventional wisdom, you will be called anti-Semitic.
Or is my Jew mind control making you read this?
If you say that AIPAC is a lobbying group that advocates pro-Israel policies to the US govt, then Jews will call you a Jew-hating anti-Semite.
This is their way of asserting Jewish supremacy over other groups.
You would think that everyone would ignore this sort of nuttiness, but apparently Jews have forced this sort of thinking on both the US House of Representatives and the Pope in Rome! Now they all grovel to appease their Jewish masters.
For an example of Jewish supremacy, see this Iraeli newspaper article from last year:
A lawmaker from the ruling Likud party said Wednesday that the “Jewish race” is the smartest in the world and possessing of the “highest human capital,” which is why, he said, the Israeli public did not buy into the allegations of wrongdoing by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu….And now they have achieved domination over the Pope and the US Congress.
His assertions led to a Twitter spat with Joint (Arab) List party MK Ahmad Tibi, who noted Nazi Germany’s treatment of Jews as a race during the Holocaust.
“I can tell you something very basic,” Zohar said during the Radio 103FM debate. “You can’t fool the Jews, no matter what is the media writes. The public in Israel is a public that belongs to the Jewish race, and the entire Jewish race is the highest human capital, the smartest, the most comprehending. The public knows what the prime minister is doing for the country and how excellent he is at his job.” …
“What can you do? We were blessed by God… and I will continue to say that at every opportunity,” he said. “I don’t have to be ashamed about the Jewish people being the Chosen People; the smartest, most special people in the world.”
Zohar cited the many innovations and discoveries made by Jews, and said that Israel had achieved more in its 70-year span than some peoples had in thousands of years.
“You can understand why we usually win a lot of Nobel Prizes,” he said.
