Vatican synod comes out strong for Palestinian rights
(Mondoweiss) -- by Joseph Glatzer --
I grew up Catholic and although I haven't been to church in a long time; I would be lying if I said this doesn't speak very powerfully to me.
The Quotes Speak for Themselves:
“The Holy Scriptures cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians, to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands,” Monsignor Cyril Salim Bustros, Greek Melkite archbishop of Our Lady of the Annunciation in Boston, Massachusetts, and president of the “Commission for the Message,” said at Saturday’s Vatican press conference.
We Christians cannot speak of the ‘promised land’ as an exclusive right for a privileged Jewish people. This promise was nullified by Christ. There is no longer a chosen people – all men and women of all countries have become the chosen people.
The good Bishop went further; into what was in effect an endorsement of a one state solution.
“Even if the head of the Israeli state is Jewish, the future is based on democracy.
The Palestinian refugees will eventually come back and this problem will have to be solved,” the Lebanese-born Bustros said.
Israel’s ambassador to the Holy See, Mordechay Lewy's thought provoking and nuanced response:
“by inviting all Palestinian refugees to return and denying Israel’s right to define itself a Jewish state – the only such in the world – he is regressing to hard-line positions that deny Israel’s right to exist.”
One of the most powerful organizations in the world, the Catholic Church, has called Israel's founding myth "nullified". So, what is the response of Israel? That the Bishops are Jew-baiting hard-liners...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
Zionists (advocates and sympathizers to the Jewish supremacist concept of ongoing Jewish choseness), Jew and Gentile alike (e.g. “Christian” Zionists) are indeed enemies of both Christianity and democracy -- and America.
It’s no coincidence that so many “Christian” members of the corrupt Washington establishment, and the corrupt generations of “elite” shyster Americans who have plundered America’s moral authority and good credit, and sold out the country so cheaply to the Judeofascists over the course of the last two and a half decades, are themselves Zionists and Judeofascist sympathizers. These, in fact, aren’t Christians at all, but rather petite Judeofascists.
How much does any of this have to do with theological religion? In response to this article and the Vatican's stance, Richard Witty, the notorious and widely despised wolf in sheep’s clothing “liberal Zionist” commenter on lefty Mondoweiss maintains:
“Christianity has a myth layered on top of a myth. If the notion that Jewish people are God’s chosen people is a myth, then the idea that Jesus is the specific fulfillment of that myth is a myth squared.”
What Witty is essentially saying here is that Christians who argue that the concept of Jewish choseness is a myth are hypocrites if they simultaneously argue that Jesus was the ultimate chosen one who fulfilled all of the doctrinal requirements of the coming messiah.
This is a fair point, which is why I don’t buy into any of the choseness nonsense whatsoever, and view the Old Testament and New Testament as a series of divinely inspired “anti-Semitic” warnings to would-be Judeofasicsts and their sympathizers, and as a serious of instructive morality tales to those who would reject Judeofascism and choose the authentic Christian route, whether theologically, spiritually or philosophically, about the innate high characteristics of Jesus and the low character of his Judeofascist persecutors.
The reason Zionism has such an appeal to certain non-Jewish personality types is because the Judeofascists are the personification of certain lowly characteristics that these Zionist Gentiles also possess: lying, shamelessly self-serving, opportunistic, greedy, ruthlessly ambitious, insatiable, and utterly lacking in conscience to the point of murderousness. These, not coincidentally, are common characteristics of the "secular" political class, the “elites,” and their patrons that have run America and much of Western civilization into the ditch over the course of the last quarter century in collaboration with the Judeofascist predators.
The neolibs, neocons, Clintons, George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Barack Obama and everything they represent and that their ilk, supporters, partners, pawns, sympathizers, useful idiots and willful dupes stand for should not and cannot be viewed as Christian in any way shape or form; but rather these types should be viewed as the devil-partnered well poisoners, saboteurs and agents of chaos and Satanism -- whether theological, spiritual or philosophical -- that they are.
They have been “tricked” into doing the bidding of Satanism because they wanted to be tricked; “duped” because they wanted to be duped; “swindled” because they wanted to be swindled; they have become despised Judas’ because of their Judas character and their free will decision to follow the path of Judeofascism even as all of the heaven-sent signals were wailing warnings and flashing red lights.
Don’t cry or feel sorry for these Faustians who have made their deals and taken their payoffs from the devil; they had their opportunities at repentance and reform, they were issued their warnings, and they spit in the face of God, decency and basic humanity at every opportunity.
Now that the bills are starting to come due and they face eclipse and personal apocalypse, they strike a victim pose and demand the compassion and sympathy that they could never afford anyone else -- but the heavens won’t be fooled, and neither should the temporal sphere.
They have a date with their demonic Master, sponsor and ally that they confirmed time and again over the course of the last twenty five years. Jesus himself stopped them at the crossroad between heaven and Satan -- and they spit in his face.
And some of them even had the chutzpah to proceed hand in hand with the devil, yet still identify themselves as "Christians." There can be no sympathy there, because they have demonstrated their premeditated comittment to evil.
