Just like Pharaoh, Benedikt! You decided to fight God? Pay the price. Not even in your own home will you be safe.

Letter to Obama: The Preservation of Jewish Legal Rights to the Land of Israel
 20 Marheshvan 5771
October 28, 2010
The President of the United States of America
His Excellency Barack Hussein Obama
Dear Mr. President,
Re: The Preservation of Jewish Legal Rights to the Land of Israel
We, the Organization of Land of Israel Loyalists, representing Jews resident in the regions of Judea and Samaria, Jerusalem as well as throughout all the Land of Israel, who have come together to preserve the integrity of the Holy Land under the sovereignty of the Jewish People, wish to bring to your attention, Mr. President, that your policy of “Two states for two peoples” can only lead to a substantive violation of the rights of the Jewish People.
As a reader of Scripture who declares his faith in the Heavenly Master of All, you undoubtedly know that the Divine Creator of Heaven and Earth granted to the  forefathers of the People of Israel, and to their progeny after them, sovereign rights to settle the Land of Israel as an eternal legacy, as we are told in the very section of the Book of Genesis the Jewish People read this past Sabbath in their synagogues the world over, regarding the Divine Promise to Abraham the Patriarch: “And I have bestowed upon you and your progeny after you the land in which you reside, the entirety of the Land of Canaan, as an eternal legacy” (Genesis 17:8).
Just as the United States of America does not share with others its sovereignty over its spacious dominion, so – and even more so – the Jewish People do not have now, nor will they have in the future, any sovereign partners in the small country we have inherited from our forefathers.
No person on earth, not even one who is recognized as the leader of the greatest nation on Earth, has the authority to bring about the transfer of portions of the Land of  Israel to other peoples. If, despite this, anyone should attempt to do so, such a deed would be tantamount to a declaration of war against the Creator of the World.
We wish further to bring to your attention that under international law, as well as under the domestic law of the United States of America, it is forbidden to violate the legal rights of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel already recognized by the world community, as confirmed by the League of Nations in 1922 and, even earlier, stated explicitly in the Resolution adopted by the San Remo Peace Conference in April 1920, the boundaries of which were defined at that time in agreements negotiated between the Mandatory Powers, the United Kingdom and France, as the borders of the Jewish National Home.
Enclosed with this letter are appendices documenting the fact that the preservation of the entirety of the Land of Israel under the sovereignty of the Jewish People is part and parcel of the domestic law of your own country, under the Anglo-American Convention on Palestine ratified in 1924 and proclaimed before a joint session of Congress a year later, in December 1925.
Furthermore, according to Conventions compiled under the auspices of the United Nations regarding Indigenous Peoples, the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria and of Jerusalem, by virtue of their being the original inhabitants of these regions as scions of the Jewish People, are protected from any forceful evacuation as well as any other interference in their everyday lives.
Please note that the above assertion – that all of the Promised Land, from Sinai to Lebanon – was divinely bequeathed to the Children of Israel is supported also by many serious Muslim scholars and accords with what many Muslims in this area know and accept!
Having brought all the foregoing to your attention, Mr. President, we are certain that you will reconsider and repudiate your present policy and proclaim to the world at large that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish People alone. Such a step would indeed make a contribution to the cause of peace and restore the fundamental world order, as well as enhance your own stature in the eyes of your own people and in the eyes of the world, including the Islamic peoples thereof.  In contrast, continuing along the path of your present policy will unfortunately lead to disaster of cataclysmic proportions, to an international conflagration and to devastating consequences which will undoubtedly endure for many generations – a catastrophe that will be recalled in history under your own illustrious name.
This is our first and only appeal to you, as a believer in Divine Providence and in the Holy Scriptures, as a leader responsible to his own people and for the peace and welfare of the entire world: cease all plans to detach sections from the Land of Israel and rather assist the Jewish People to settle throughout its homeland in peace and security.
If you do so, you will be blessed by the Sages of Israel, whose blessing is that of the Almighty, as stated in the very same Book of the Bible cited above (Genesis 12:2):
“And be you a blessing!” This has been understood by our Sages as meaning: “All blessings are in your hands!” – in itself a blessing for all the nations of the world, in accordance with the Divine message to Abraham (Genesis 17:5): “I have made you as a father to many nations!”

"  It is interesting that not long after President Obama was elected, he added a surprising rider to his demand for cessation of building in Judea and Samaria when he concluded that he was sure that the Pope would approve of such a policy!"

The question naturally arises, “Since when has Rome dictated American policy/” …. the answer is probably “increasingly for at least 100 years”.

Here is a comment that appeared after the above letter was posted:

Straight out of Benedikt's mouth. This is the legacy of Rome, this is the cancer eating at the world, spread directly by the pope, by the Catholic church, by the Vatican, and from there to the rest of the world, where little copycats such as this anonymous poster blindly repeat what they heard being said in Rome.

"We cannot resort to theological and Biblical assumptions as a tool to justify injustice. We want to say that the promise of God in the Old Testament, relating to the ‘promised land’ … as Christians, we’re saying that this promise was nullified by the presence of Jesus Christ, who then brought about the Kingdom of God. As Christians, we cannot talk about a ‘promised land’ for the Jews. We talk about a ‘promised land’ which is the Kingdom of God. THAT is the promised land, which encompasses the entire earth with a message of peace and justice and equality for all the children of God.

There is no preferred or privileged people. All men and women from every country have become the ‘chosen people.’ This is clear for us.

We cannot just refer to the ‘promised land’ to justify the return of the Jews in Israel, and [ignore] the Palestinians who were kicked out of their land. Five million Jews kicked out three or four million Palestinians from their land, and this is not justifiable.

There’s no ‘chosen people’ any longer for Christians. Everybody is the ‘chosen people.’ What we say is something political. Sacred scripture should not be used to justify the occupation of Palestinian land on the part of the Israelis."

... And here is what Benedikt said just three weeks ago:
"Salvation is universal, but it passes through a specific historical mediation: the mediation of the people of Israel, which goes on to become that of Jesus Christ and the Church." ­Pope Benedict XVI, Homily, Opening Mass of the Synod on the Middle East, St. Peter's Basilica, Sunday, October 10, 2010
And, the Pope continued, the way is not simply to be understood as the possession of an earthly territory, an earthly homeland, an earthly "Promised Land."
This 'land' is not of this world; the whole of the divine plan goes beyond history, but the Lord wants to build it with men, for men and in men, beginning with the coordinates of space and time in which they live and which He Himself gave them."
This, in a sense, is the central message of this Synod, already stated beforehand by the Pope in this opening homily.
The message is that the "Promised Land" of freedom and peace to which God wishes to lead "His" people is, yes, "not of this world," for, as the Pope says, "the whole of the divine plan goes beyond history." 
And yet, at the same time, "the Lord wishes to build it [the Promised Land] with men, for men and in men, beginning with the coordinates of space and time in which they live and which He Himself gave them."
Meanwhile, many people just know better: witness the demonstrations that took place at the Vatican last night. Real people know the true legacy of Rome; THE KING IS NAKED: Rome is evil!The pope is evil! Benedikt IS the naked wolf!

November 1, 2010 In the first such gathering at the heart of the Catholic Church, victims of clerical sex abuse from around the world gathered Sunday night outside the Vatican to demand justice. But police blocked them from bringing their protest under the windows of Pope Benedict XVI.
Close to 100 sex abuse victims carrying torches were outnumbered by paramilitary police who cordoned off the main avenue leading to the Vatican. Only two protesters were allowed to approach Vatican soil and deposit sealed letters addressed to the pope from abuse victims.
At a rally staged just 500 yards from the Vatican, Gary Bergeron — co-founder of the group Survivors Voice — addressed the crowd.
"What we once had as children we can never get back," he said. "We stand here today to serve as reminders to the world that what was once taken from us should never be taken from another child again."
Bergeron also said the group called on the United Nations "to define and include the systemic sexual abuse of children under Article VII of its charter definitions of crimes against humanity."
Prompted by the worldwide explosion of sex abuse scandals, the event aimed to show victims they're not alone.
Bernie McDaid — who met with Benedict in Washington two years ago — said he had told the pope there was a cancer in the church. But, McDaid said, little has been done.
The demonstrators included a group of Italian men who were abused by priests at a Catholic institute for the deaf in Verona between the 1950s and 1980s. They made themselves heard with whistles and held placards with messages such as "Shame," "The pope protects pedophile priests," "Church without abuse," and "Pope on trial."

Margaret Kennedy, an abuse victim from Ireland, said she felt betrayed.
"I feel sad, because I was a happy Catholic," she said, "but I think the institution has become very corrupt, and I find that incredibly sad, because my faith means so much to me and  I think they have not been good servants of the people."
Earlier, participants stood up one by one to tell of lives devastated by the abuse they suffered as children, of the guilt and shame and solitude they suffered in the belief that they were alone.
Gianni Bisoli, 62, a victim of abuse at the institute for the deaf in Verona, spoke with difficulty. But his message was clear.
"This is a worldwide problem," he said. "We want justice. We want these priests to be defrocked and kept away from children."
Shelly Winemiller, a 42-year-old mother from Wisconsin, said she was abused from age 4 to 14 by the family priest.
"It's time to stop the stonewalling and denial," she said. "The pope has got to understand he has to do something about this world crisis. It's like a tsunami over the world, and he has got to do something."

Please note the relative lack of coverage given this important news item in the general press, as well as the complete black-out in Vatican news ( AsiaNews, Zenit Agency).
