Here, read all about who the QUEEN OF HEAVEN IS, that the pope is about to worship in Jerusalem on Har Zion, together with his retinue of church officials, ON THE SAME DAY HE IS MEETING WITH THE CHIEF RABBIS at Heichal Schlomo.
This, in addition to the abominable INTERFAITH MEETINGS that are simply EXERCISES IN BRAINWASHING OF OUR RABBIS AND OBVIOUS LEGITIMIZATION OF AVODA ZARA IN ISRAEL,
AND IN ADDITION TO THE OTHER IDOLATROUS CEREMONIES PERFORMED OPENLY AND PUBLICLY ON OUR BAMOT.
THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN IS THE ABOMINABLE ASHERAH, THAT IS FORBIDDEN TO WORSHIP IN ERETZ YISRAEL.
BY CONDONING THIS CHILLUL HASHEM, THE CHIEF RABBIS WOULD COMMIT THE UNFORGIVABLE SIN OF AVODAH ZARAH IN ERETZ YISRAEL. THEY SHOULD THINK OF THE CONSEQUENCES FOR THEMSELVES , AS WELL AS THE CONSEQUENCES FOR AM YISRAEL.
2.QUEEN OF HEAVEN
(melekheth ha-shamayim, although there is another reading, mele'kheth, "worship" or "goddess"): Occurs only in two passages: Jer 7:18; 44:17-19,25, where the prophet denounces the wrath of God upon the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem who have given themselves up to the worship of the host of heaven. This is no doubt a part of the astral worship which is found largely developed among the Jews in the later period of their history in Canaan. It is first mentioned in 2 Ki 17:16 as practiced by the men of the Northern Kingdom when Samaria had fallen and the ten tribes were being carried away into captivity. Moses is represented as warning the Israelites against the worship of the sun and moon and stars and all the host of heaven, practiced by the people of Canaan (Dt 4:19; 17:3) and the existence of such worship among the Canaanites and neighboring nations is attested from an early period (compare Job 31:26-28). The worship of the heavenly bodies was widely spread in the East and in Arabia; and the Babylonian pantheon was full of astral deities, where each divinity corresponded either to an astral phenomenon or to some circumstance or occurrence in Nature which is connected with the course of the stars (Jeremias, The Old Testament in the Light of the Ancient East, I, 100). From the prophets we gather that before the exile the worship of the host of heaven had become established among all classes and in all the towns of Israel (Jer ubi supra; Ezek 8:16). In that worship the queen of heaven had a conspicuous place; and if, as seems probable from the cakes which were offered, she is to be identified with the Assyrian Ishtar and the Canaanite Astarte, the worship itself was of a grossly immoral and debasing character. That this Ishtar cult was of great antiquity and widely spread in ancient Babylonia may be seen from the symbols of it found in recent excavations (see Nippur, II, 236). ...But that the people of Judah in the days before the exile had given themselves over to the worst and vilest forms of heathen worship and incurred the grievous displeasure of (G-d) is made clear by the denunciation of the worship of the queen of heaven by Jeremiah.
AT LEAST IT IS OUR DUTY TO PROTEST THIS. WHAT THEY DO IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY, BUT OUR RESPONSIBILITY IS TO PROTEST.

Chief Rabbis Won't Greet Pope at Airport, Will Meet Him Tuesday
(IsraelNN.com) Chief Rabbis Shlomo Amar and Yona Metzger have been invited to four meetings with visiting Pope Benedict XVI. They will attend one, will not attend another, and are considering the others.
The Pope's arrival at Ben Gurion International Airport on Monday at 11 AM will be attended chiefly by politicians, and the rabbis have announced that they will not attend. "The Pope is wearing two hats," their spokesman told Israel National News: "Head of a state, and head of a religion. The airport ceremony is more of a political one, and therefore the rabbis will not be attending."
Also on the itinerary for Monday is an interfaith meeting at the Notre Dame Guest House just outside Jerusalem's Old City. The rabbis have not announced whether they will attend, as is the case for the Pope's visit to the Western Wall – following his visit with the Grand Mufti on the Temple Mount – on Tuesday morning.
The Chief Rabbis will host the visiting pontiff at Heichal Shlomo, the Chief Rabbinate's former headquarters near the Jewish Agency building in Jerusalem, on Tuesday at 10:35 AM.
Group Calls on Rabbis to Boycott
At least one group has called on the rabbis not to meet at all with Pope Benedict. The Task Force to Save the Nation and Land, headed by Rabbis Yaakov Yosef and Shalom Dov Wolpe, conveyed its call by telegram to the Chief Rabbinate. The message reads, in part:
"This involves a desecration of G-d's Name… The very meeting and recognition of him is related to idol worship, if not outright idol worship, and involves a sin that one must die for and not violate. Not to mention that the memories still linger of the persecution of the Inquisition, as well as the Church's role in the Holocaust. In addition, this pope is known for his personal membership in the Hitler Youth, as well as his statements in favor of a Holocaust-denier."
"All the above is many times worse," the message states, "given that the visit is accompanied by pressures and agreements to give over to the Church parts of Mount Zion and other parts of the Holy Land. A welcome by the Chief Rabbis encourages this trend."
Hostility in 1964
The Task Force reminds the Chief Rabbis that one of their predecessors, Rabbi Yitzchak Nissim, refused to meet with a visiting pope in 1964. They do not note, however, that Rabbi Nissim only did so after the pope refused to meet him in Jerusalem. The entire visit was marked by papal hostility to the Jewish State, as the pope refused to mention Israel by name and did not visit Yad Vashem or other official Israeli sites.
In 2000, when Pope John Paul II visited, Chief Rabbi Lau met him in Heichal Shlomo, and the visit was more cordial. Rabbi Lau still expressed disappointment that the visitor made no mention of Pope Pius XII's silence during the Holocaust.
In the context of Papal-Rabbinical meetings, it should be noted that Pope Pius XII refused several requests by Israel's Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog to meet with him before and during the Holocaust and discuss how the Church could help save Jewish lives. After the war, too, Chief Rabbi Herzog asked for the Pope's assistance in locating Jewish orphans who were cared for by Catholic families, and again, the Pope refused.
