Jews, the Church,
and the History of the World
|In this series, I will explain why Jews and Catholics have
had such a rocky history and why Jews and traditional Catholics still
have difficulties with each other (as groups) today.
Most people who've been educated in American public schools, who've
have had a steady diet of Hollywood, PBS, NPR, and the like, or who
have received an education at the typical university, will end up with
at least the "sense" of the following equations: Catholics=bad,
Jews=good; Catholics=persecuters, Jews=persecuted. They will end up
acquiring a blend of very Anglo-centric, Protestant, secular, Jewish,
and Marxist views of such things as the Spanish Inquisition, the
Crusades, the role of Pope Pius XII in WWII, etc. -- views "supported"
by wildly exaggerated statistics, omitting context, ignoring the
Catholic view of these incidents, out and out blatant falsifications,
and by simply not having a clear understanding of political theory
(along with, in the case of members of Protestant sects, not having a
clear understanding of orthodox Christian teaching).
Ignorance of the true nature of Jewish-Catholic relations goes deep. Very
deep. Writing about it will involve revisiting over 2,000 years of
history, taking what we think we know and turning 90% of it 45o
right-side up. Just have an open mind and conduct your own research
into the things I write about.
Before going further, I want it to be made very clear -- radically
clear, excrutiatingly clear:
racism has no place whatsoever in a Catholic's heart or mind. The
information here is about Jewish leadership and the Jewish religion; it
is not about every single human being born of a Jewish mother, "the
Jews" as an ethnic group, or
"the Jews" as a "race." Racism -- any idea that one race is more
beloved by God, or is more deserving of respect and charity than
another race -- has no place in a Catholic's heart. None whatsoever.
The problem here is ideological -- ultimately theological; it's about the beliefs
and consequent behaviors of human
beings who have interests and goals that are at odds with
Christians' interests and goals. Period. Further, it is often Jewish
people who end up suffering the most from some of the things being
written about here. Here's to the hope that more Jewish people realize
this, walk away from post-Temple Judaism and revolutionary politics,
and embrace the Logos, Who is Christ.

Mystery of the Jewish People

one of the best articles I've read on the Mystery of the Jewish people,
their relationship with Christians, the meaning of it all, and where
it's all headed. A must read!

Yes, they are. But it doesn't mean at all what most people think it

A book written by Professor Ariel Toaff -- son of
the Chief Rabbi of Rome, and a professor of Jewish Renaissance and
Medieval History at Bar-Ilan University in Israel -- about the reality
behind so-called "blood libel" allegations made against some Jews
during the Middle Ages. This book was published in Hebrew, in Israel,
but when translated into other languages, outrage ensued. Threats
were made against the writer's life, demands were made that he be fired
from his teaching post, and all copies of the book disappeared from
bookstores, deliveries of the book were disrupted, etc., and it's
virtually unavailable to read in print in any language but Hebrew. So
here it is, in spite of the actions and threats of those who don't want
you to read it.

When you read
the above two articles, think of how radically unfairly
and untruthfully the sex abuse scandals
that swept through the human
element of the Catholic Church were handled by the media, how "priest"
has become almost
synonymous with "pedophile" in the minds of many, how our priests are
mercilessly mocked by comedians and Hollywood -- all while this sort of
thing is a huge problem in Jewish circles but is very rarely mentioned.
Notable Hebrew Catholics
You could add, of course, Mary the Mother of God, SS. Peter, Paul, John
the Divine, James the Greater, James the Less, etc., Teresa of Avila,
Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein), etc. The point: once
again, race is not and never will be the issue.

From "Look Magazine." He predicts that there will be built a U.N.

"Supreme Court of mankind" would be basing its decisions on -- laws
that would make the worship of Jesus Christ punishable by decapitation.

Website of Norman Finkelstein, whose parents both survived Nazi camps.
He writes about how lucrative and manipulative "Shoah Business" is and
how what he terms "the Holocaust Industry" seeks to humiliate and
financially milk nations. Quote: "As my mother used to say, if everyone
who claims to be a Holocaust survivor actually is one, who did Hitler
kill? " -- none of which is to "deny the Holocaust"; the points are
exaggeration and abuse of historical facts for finanical gain. (Ever
notice how one can publicly deny God, blaspheme Christ, argue about the
details any other historical event all one wants, but one can't debate
about the details of the Holocaust? The Holocaust has become a religion
with its own "blasphemies" which can land one in prison, quite literally, in many countries of the

Generator got blogged a lot this past week. All was well, pretty
much everyone thought it was funny (as it was meant to be), until Mark
Shea blogged about it and one of his site visitors got upset because of
this site's Jewish-Catholic relations section. In Mark Shea's blog's
comment boxes, said visitor argued with me as to what is actually in
the Talmud, and the results (thus far, anyway) can be found at the
above links. I am unable to post the link to the second response at
Mark Shea's blog.

By Stepen G. Bloom
The true reasons for anti-semitism, aside from Jewish leaders'
involvement in leftist causes, usury and other economic tricks, are
accidentally explained in "Postville," a fascinating work written
by Stephen G. Bloom, a secular Jewish man. The book explains what
happens when a group of Lubavitcher Jews moves into a small Protestant
town in Iowa to open a meat processing plant. You will never understand
Historical "anti-semitism" until you understand the dynamics described
in this book, understand the nature of usury and fractional reserve
banking, examine the Jewish role in revolutionary, anti-Christendom
causes, and read what the post-Temple Jewish religion
