Bishop Williamson, who got expelled from Argentina on a technicality, but in fact because of his raging antisemitism, showed his true colors at the airport. Escorted by two goons, when approached by a reporter, he VIOLENTLY pushed the man against a pole, while his acolytes seized the poor journalist brutally. Oh the sweet taste of reality: here you see the Church for all it's worth, its LOVE, its TOLERANCE, its PEACEFUL NATURE... I am glad the cat is out of the bag.
And by the way,did you know that PIUS X was a GRAND MASTER of the ORDER OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE, A CRUSADER ORDER?? ( you can read about it further down, in another context). That sort of puts Williamson and his rehabilitation by the pope in a slightly different perspective, doesn't it?
Now that I got this story out of my system, on to the main course: the changing of the guard FOR THE AMERICAN POPE that was announced yesterday - the actual change will take place in April. If you go back to my article, "The Secret Machinations of the Vatican....", posted at ISRAEL TRUTH TIMES on February 4th, 2009, you will see that the Papal Nuncio in Jerusalem was also replaced under similar circumstances: together with the changing of the guard in Israel; then it was Ariel Sharon in a coma; today, it is A NEW KNESSET SWORN IN, with NETANYAHU having been hand-picked as ISRAEL'S PRIME MINISTER..
You have to realize that the issue of Israel, and of Jerusalem in particular, is ALL IMPORTANT TO THIS POPE. If you look at the appointments he has made, for instance of Cardinal George for President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, an extremely important position in America, you will see that the appointees , by and large, obey certain criteria:
1. they are conservative orthodox ( that means also, anti-abortion, and anti-gay, which is OK by me)
2. they repudiate Vatican II
3. they have strong ties to the Jesuits
4. they FAVOR THE INQUISITION and its version of Catholicism, and
5. they have ties to the MODERN DAY CRUSADERS, in this case, the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, etc.
The Williamson rehabilitation, together with that of the Society of Pius X, can certainly be understood in this light by anyone who is willing to read beyond the official - and lying- version of the church.
If you read the articles below, you will see that the church - and by extension, Europe - views Netanyahu with considerable alarm. An article written by the Meshumad Aryeh Cohen,( who has been writing for Asia News, a Vatican mouthpiece to the world, for years now), shows how the church views Bibi: as an enemy to be feared and loathed. Because don't forget that under the verbiage of peace, this pope is a CRUSADER, for whom Jerusalem is the ultimate goal. If you read the letter written by the head bishop of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to Condi a few months ago, and you compare it with US policy in Israel, you will see that Condi VOICED PRACTICALLY WORD FOR WORD THE LETTER COMING FROM THE CHURCH. WITH OTHER WORDS, - AND THIS IS NOT NEWS, it happened during Ariel Sharon's tenure as well, see my article again - AMERICAN POLICY IN ISRAEL HAS BEEN NOT ONLY INFLUENCED BY THE CHURCH, BUT DICTATED BY IT. We can see this clearly from the text of this letter.
So in this context, and with Obama at the helm now, this new appointment in New York makes sense: there has been quite a bit of conflict between Cardinal George, who also happens to be the archbishop of CHICAGO, and whom obviously Obama knows well, and Obama, over abortion issues.Also don't forget that Cardinal Egan had no problem ordering Rice and Bush around, because they are both aspiring catholics, and as such, would do the bidding of the pope with nary a peep. However with Obama the muslim we face a different challenge! Would he accept orders from a dhimmi? Then there is the issue of personality, Obama's huge ego: so here comes this new, jovial face, happy go lucky guy, as phony as Obama is, they can outdo each other in fake charm, and who knows, they might even fall for each other's lies....in order to convince Obama to do the church's bidding, Egan style won't do: Obama the Muslim won't fall for catholic doctrine: you need a young, new face, somebody Obama can relate to, who can play the game the right way, with the right mask, the right words... Dolan is perfect!
AS EUROPE, AND BY EXTENSION, THE CHURCH ARE SAYING:
ONLY OBAMA CAN PUSH ISRAEL - SEE BELOW.
NOT THAT OBAMA NEEDS A PUSH, MIND YOU, BUT JUST IN CASE, THE CHURCH PUT TOGETHER A MECHANISM TO PRESSURE ISRAEL VIA THE US GOVERNMENT, but this time, in a style appropriate to the black muslim in the White House.
ALSO DON'T FORGET THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN; ANTISEMITISM. THAT IS THE OTHER WEAPON THE CHURCH INTENDS TO USE FULLY: THE MOMENT IT DOESN'T GET WHAT IT WANTS IN ISRAEL, ROME UNLEASHES ITS OTHER DEADLY WEAPON; THE WAR AGAINST THE JEWS OF THE GALUT: IT PLAYS A VERY DIRTY AND OLD TRICK USED BY ROME OF OLD: THE GLADIATOR GAMES: DO YOU REMEMBER HOW ROME USED TO LOVE WATCHING HEBREW SLAVES ( AND OTHERS) FIGHT EACH OTHER TO THE DEATH? WELL, I SEE IT PLAYING THIS VERY SAME GAME THESE DAYS: PITTING THE JEWS OF THE GALUT AGAINST THE JEWS OF ISRAEL, SO THEY START HATING EACH OTHER, TELLING DIASPORA JEWS THAT IN ESSENCE, IT IS ISRAELI JEWS' FAULT THAT THERE IS ANTISEMITISM IN THE WORLD, WHEN IN FACT, THE TRUTH IS THAT THE CHURCH, VIA THE JESUITS , THE FORD FOUNDATION, ETC., INFLAMES ANTISEMITISM WORLDWIDE AT WILL, AND PARTICULARLY WHEN ISRAEL DOES WHAT IS BEST FOR ITS JEWS. IIT IS A DEADLY GAME; WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HOW IT IS BEING PLAYED BY THE LIKES OF CARDINAL GEORGE, ARCHBISHOP EGAN, THE JESUITS, PIETRO SAMBI, ETC.
So much for now.
Knesset Swearing-In Ceremony Begins
(IsraelNN.com) The swearing-in ceremony for the 18th Knesset began Tuesday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. The traditional ceremony is led by President Shimon Peres.
Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu has been selected to form a governing coalition. Focus has centered on whether he will be able to build a national unity government.
By GREGORY KATZ – Feb 11, 2009
LONDON (AP) — As the two leading candidates in Israel's election continued to claim victory, many Europeans expressed fear Wednesday that the shaky peace process was the real loser in the nearly deadlocked vote.
With an ultranationalist in the role of kingmaker, many were predicting that the hawkish Benjamin Netanyahu would eventually prevail over the moderate Tzipi Livni — hardening the government's stance in already stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
The ambiguous election results threaten President Barack Obama's desire to make a peace deal an urgent priority, as signaled by his appointment of veteran negotiator Sen. George Mitchell as special envoy, European politicians and commentators said.
Andrew Gwynne, a Labour Party legislator in Britain who chairs a pro-Israeli group, said he was disappointed by the results, which he said are likely to bring Netanyahu's rightwing Likud Party back to power.
"That seems the most realistic outcome, sadly, although I would like to see a progressive government committed to the peace process," said Gwynne, chairman of Labour Friends of Israel.
In the past, Netanyahu has strongly resisted compromising with the Palestinians.
The rising influence of Avigdor Lieberman, whose ultranationalist party won enough seats to become the third-leading force in Israel's Parliament, also caused alarm. His party pushed Israel's once formidable Labor Party, which has often pursued peace, into fourth place.
"Can you imagine anything further from the proposals of Barack Obama than the xenophobic ideas proposed" by Lieberman, asked Italy's left leaning La Repubblica newspaper.
The Swiss daily newspaper Basler Zeitung said the vote showed "the majority of Israelis don't believe in peace" and that impetus toward a settlement must now come from outside.
Mike Williams, a specialist at the University of London who advised Obama's foreign policy team during the presidential campaign, said the election results pose a challenge to Obama.
"It's not good for the peace process," he said. "Obama wanted to start from day one, now that is going to be problematic."
He said the results also raise the prospect that a hardline Israeli government might launch unilateral action against Iran to curtail the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.
"It ratchets up the pressure on the Obama administration to keep Israel in line over Iran," he said. "The major concern for the U.S. is that Israel will start a military operation it can't finish and Washington would have to mop up afterward. The Israelis don't have the technology to effectively retard the Iranian nuclear program."
In Norway, University of Oslo history professor and author Hilde Henriksen Waage said the vote will likely lead to more Israeli use of military force.
"I think the whole Israeli society has taken a step to the right and a more military direction," she said.
Swedish newspapers agreed that the Israeli vote would probably bring about more problems than solutions, largely because Netanyahu has the best chances to form a government but would have to rely on alliances with far-right parties to do so.
"But such a government, where Netanyahu is totally exposed to three or four fanatic extremist parties, and which soon would come on collision course with both the U.S. and the Arab world, is one he wants to avoid," the daily Dagens Nyheter said.
Avi Shlaim, a foreign affairs specialist at Oxford University who frequently criticizes Israel, said it is not inevitable that Netanyahu will emerge atop a new Israeli government — but he said the only way the peace process can move forward now is if the Obama administration pressures Israel.
"The implication of the election for the peace process is more of the same," he said. "Only America can push Israel. Obama is an improvement, an honest broker, but America must go a step forward and push Israel toward a settlement."

Tensions are high between Liebermann's secularists and the ultra-orthodox Shas. Peace and a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are put off to the next government.TEL AVIV (AsiaNews) - Moderate, "normal", Israelis are still reeling from the shock of the results of the general election held on 10 February, which have seen the ascendancy of the nationalist right wing, with an unusually large representation for the right's extreme fringes.
More than any other result, it is the number of seats in the 120-member unicameral parliament, the Knesset, that will now go to the extreme right wing nationalist "Yisrael Beiteinu" Party that has been causing consternation. The nationalist extremism of this party is not even about the perpetuation of the military occupation (begun in 1967) of the West Bank and the Golan Heights, but about inciting ethnic tensions within Israel itself, between the majority Jews and the minority Arabs.
Headed by Mr. Avigdor Liebermann, a settler from Russia, with unsavoury ties in his original homeland, and almost permanently under investigation by police and prosecutors (on suspicion of bribery and money-laundering), this party may have a key role in a right wing Government headed by Mr. Netanyahu, if one is established. The only ray of light in this result is that Mr. Liebermann's extremism is strictly secular and even anticlerical, and that his party would serve as a counterweight to the theocratic programme of the fundamentalist Shas party, which is also a likely important participant in a right-wing Netanyahu government.
But will it be Mr. Netanyahu who will form and head the new government? This is still not at all certain, although he himself says he will. Mr. Netanyahu was prime minister once before, from 1996 to 1999, and his tenure is generally remembered as a dismal failure on all fronts. But, at least in theory, he can command a parliamentary majority made up entirely of the right, whereas Ms. Livni's Kadima party, even if it does come out ahead in the number of legislators, cannot build up a majority of the centre-left, because such a majority simply does not exist.
Under these circumstances, many agree that the "least worst" coalition government would be made up of Mr. Netanyahu's Likud, Ms. Livni's Kadima and what remains of Mr. Ehud Barak's Labour Party (which has been devastated further by these elections after years of inexorable decline). Together the three parties command a comfortable parliamentary majority, and could afford to leave out all the "crazies", the nationalist extremists as well as the religious fundamentalists.
But will it happen? Most people I have talked to doubt whether Mr. Netanyahu and Ms. Livni could set aside their "egos" sufficiently to agree on such an "emergency programme".
And even if it does happen, it is practically certain that, with Mr. Netanyahu's Likud in the government, in such a prominent, commanding (or co-commanding) role, there will be no prospects at all for any peace treaty, with either Palestine or Syria.
Therefore, the best the peoples of the area will be able to hope for is for all their governments together to be willing and able, not indeed to resolve the conflict, but to "manage" it as competently as possible, and to avoid pointless provocations, while waiting for yet another election and another government in Israel to take up the challenge of peace.
In November 2007 Cardinal George was elected president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Christian-Jewish relationsIn 2007, he asked Jews to reconsider descriptions of Jesus in the Talmud as a "bastard" in exchange for a softening of traditional Catholic prayers calling for Jews to be converted to Christianity....
/.....Cardinal George had been mentioned as potential candidate to succeed Pope John Paul II according to TIME magazine, and later to succeed Pope Benedict XVI as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. However, Benedict appointed former Archbishop of San Francisco William Levada to fill that office. He is a member of the board of trustees of the Catholic University of America, a senior board member of Mundelein Seminary and Loyola University Chicago, and a member of the Order of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre.

The Holy See continues to support a two-state solution in the Holy Land in which Israelis and Palestinians can live side by side within secure borders. The Catholic Church also favors a political arrangement that recognizes Jerusalem's international status as a spiritual center for Jews, Christians and Muslims.
( interesting: yesterday I referred to the bishop as a "pigface"'; today the picture has changed , even though the article stayed the same. I guess somebody noticed he doesn't look too good, and replaced that ugly but true replica of the human being with this phony, affable looking image of a naive priest. Doesn't fool me, not after I saw the other picture. In good Jesuit style, they'll probably black-out every single picture on the net that hints at the true nature of this 'pigface"!)
