Catholic cleric: End Gaza sanctions
Latin patriarch of Jerusalem calls upon Palestinians 'to return to unity in context of a recognized Palestinian legal structure, to spare people continuing degrading siege'
Published: 12.23.08, 17:30 / Israel NewsJerusalem's top Roman Catholic cleric assailed Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip and urged Palestinians to heal their political rift in his first Christmas message on Tuesday.Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal traveled to Gaza earlier this week to pray with the tiny Christian minority there, and used a news conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday to draw attention the plight of the territory's residents.
Just as Bethlehem, Jesus' traditional West Bank birthplace, waited for him, "so are we awaiting a manifestation of the Savior's grace that will put an end to the occupation and the injustice, delivering us from those fears, hardships and internal divisions that beset this land," Twal said.
The Jordanian-born cleric became the top Catholic leader in Jerusalem in June and is the second Palestinian to hold the post. His previous positions include diocese of Tunis and vicar of Ramallah.
PAX CHRISTI is an INTERNATIONAL CATHOLIC MOVEMENT, and AMOS TRUST is, in their words: a "Roman Catholic Trust, spreading God's Word through custom-made cards." As you can see, a significant number of these organizations are catholic, although I cannot deny that other Christian groups are also quite well represented.
What seems to be happening is that all the dedicated catholic and other antisemites are creating a coalition of Jew and Israel haters - and there is no shortage of those, coordinating their vicious attacks against us.
More ominous that this, though, is the overall picture I see developing in Great Britain, as it appears to be awfully similar to the story of the pogroms of 1929, in which Jews were brutally massacred while the British overlords looked away, and even armed the Arabs.
Today., 2008, and soon 2009, we see the same pattern happening. Great Britain - in collusion with the Vatican, evidently - wants the Jews out of Yesha, and ultimately out of Israel. As it is not politically correct, and quite costly, to go to war directly with the Jews of Yesha, the British, and the Catholic Church , IN CAHOOT WITH THE LEFTIST GOVERNMENT OF ISRAEL , - which is nothing new : AFTER ALL, REMEMBER THAT TEDDY KOLLEK ADMITTED TO BETRAYING HIS CORELIGIONISTS TO THE BRITISH -, have a much simpler solution:
Arabs hate the Jews with a passion anyway; so, simple enough to TRAIN THE ARABS EXCELLENTLY, GIVE THEM MASSES OF WEAPONS, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME WEAPONS BECOME ILLEGAL FOR THE JEWS OF YESHA. Then, havethe Israeli police ENFORCE THE RULE AGAINST THE JEWS, MAKING IT ILLEGAL FOR A JEW TO DEFEND HIMSELF OR OTHERS AGAINST MURDER. And of course, don't forget the repeated blood libel against the Jews, so that OTHER JEWS don't oppose the actions.
THEN LET THE ARABS LOOSE ON THE JEWS, AND LET THEM MASSACRE THEM.
The British, and the Catholic Church, and the Americans, come out looking so just, so concerned about"HUMAN RIGHTS, PEACE",while the Arab "MILITANTS" justifiably fight for their "legitimate" rights.
NOBODY SHOULD ALLOW GREAT BRITAIN, THE CHURCH, AND THE USA TO PLAY THIS GAME, AND HIDE BEHIND THE ARABS. THEY ARE MURDERERS JUST AS MUCH.THEY ARE FUNDING, ORGANIZING, TRAINING, INCITING, EGGING ON THE ARABS AGAINST THE JEWS, AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR EVERY DROP OF JEWISH BLOOD SHED IN ISRAEL BY ANY ARAB.
I WOULD VERY MUCH WATCH THE DATE OF JANUARY 9, AND THE NEXT FEW DAYS AFTER THAT ( PA ELECTIONS). Watch for riots, gunfights, and "MISDIRECTED RAGE" as well as ORDER BY THE PA FORCES applied against the Jews of YESHA.
That is my prediction. Jews , PROTECT YOURSELVES, FOR G-Ds' SAKE!
UK NGOs use Christmas to attack Israel
HERB KEINON and Jerusalem Post staff , THE JERUSALEM POST
In time for Christmas, several British NGOs have returned to past theological offensives against Israel by combining emphasis on Bethlehem, stories of Palestinian suffering, and false allegations of Israeli cruelty, NGO Monitor said in a report issued Tuesday.
Through Christmas cards, carols and charity fund-raising, War on Want, Amos Trust, Pax Christi and others condemn the West Bank security barrier and ignore the Palestinian terror campaign that necessitates it, according to the report.
(PAX CHRISTI is an INTERNATIONAL CATHOLIC MOVEMENT, and AMOS TRUST is, in their words: a "Roman Catholic Trust, spreading God's Word through custom-made cards." So an overwhelming majority of these so-called charities, are in fact, VIRULENT CATHOLIC ANTISEMITIC AND ANTI-ISRAEL ORGANIZATIONS ( NGO's. DS)
As in previous years, when NGOs used London Underground station advertisements and greeting cards, these campaigns capitalize on holiday sentiment and Christian religious symbols to declare: "The wall must fall," and present a biased view of the conflict, NGO Monitor said. War on Want and Amos Trust are marketing Christmas cards depicting the security barrier and conflating Jesus with the Palestinians - a familiar theme among British NGOs.
The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign is selling similar items to protest the "illegal structure" of the "apartheid wall," thereby also appealing to religious prejudices.
War on Want's cards feature "the three wise men trying to get to Bethlehem but being forced to dig underneath Israel's separation wall." A second card shows Mary and Joseph encountering a Bethlehem that is "effectively sealed off from the outside world by Israel's Separation Wall," and "Mary and Joseph being frisked on their way to find an inn for the night."
Similarly, Amos Trust advertises cards that portray Santa Claus walking along the security barrier with a bag of gifts, ringing a bell. The inside text ends, "As we celebrate the child born in Bethlehem - let us not forget God's children living in Bethlehem today." Additionally, as in previous years, Amos Trust offers the "Wall Nativity," which comes with a prayer guide and "complete with separation wall [and] depicts the current situation in Bethlehem." This project has been criticized for its anti-Semitic undertones.
On November 26, a fringe group calling itself Jews for Boycotting Israeli Goods organized an event titled, "Bethlehem Now: Nine Alternative Lessons and Carols for Palestine," involving "traditional carols with untraditional lyrics, interspersed with poetry and prose readings, to highlight current reality in the Holy Land."
The event was held at a prominent Anglican church, St. James, Piccadilly, and proceeds supposedly went to Medical Aid for Palestinians and Open Bethlehem. While Medical Aid for Palestinians is funded to provide just that, medical aid, many of its activities focus on political campaigning, including accusations that the Israeli government is responsible for "harsh (and illegal) measures of collective punishment."
And Open Bethlehem, an NGO funded by Trocaire (the overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland), blames the "Israeli-built wall" for "an unprecedented wave of emigration, particularly among the city's Christians," ignoring the targeting of Christians by Muslim extremists and Palestinian terror.
Lyrics for the "Twelve Days of Christmas" include: "Twelve assassinations, Eleven homes demolished, Ten wells obstructed, Nine sniper towers... and an uprooted olive tree."
"Once in Royal David's City" was changed to "Once in royal David's city stood a big apartheid wall..."
Christian and Jewish community leaders strongly condemned the event.
"It was appalling to see a church allow one of its most endearing seasonal traditions to be hijacked by hatred," Israeli Ambassador Ron Proser said.
Israeli government sources said the work of these NGOs - some of which include Jews and Israeli citizens - crosses the line of legitimate criticism and feeds into efforts to delegitimize Israel.
The problem, the sources said, is that these NGOs create "a certain atmosphere that infiltrates into the policy-making circles and in that way influences policy."
There is concern in Jerusalem that policy-makers look at the actions of these NGOs and conclude that they represent a substantial part of public opinion, something that could erode support for Israel at the governmental level.
The officials said Israel's supporters in the United Kingdom needed to speak out more clearly against this type of Israel-bashing, and not leave it to the embassy to respond.
Numerous NGOs participated in the Piccadilly event. War on Want was an official supporter and Bruce Kent, vice president of Pax Christi, was a special guest with a reading role. After the event he said, "The carols pointed out exactly what is going on in occupied Palestine today. I am delighted they have had the publicity that this has generated. Anyone who speaks against Zionist policies is labeled anti-Semitic."
Also in attendance was Baroness Jenny Tonge, former trustee of Christian Aid. The composers drew inspiration from Garth Hewitt, founder of the Amos Trust, who also wrote some of the alternative lyrics.
