Pope Benedict's 'Noahide Law' Commission Mocks Victims of Talmudic Economics

Updated

The theme of this the 11th meeting of the bilateral commission [of the Chief Rabbinate of Counterfeit Israel and the 'Holy' See's Commission for Religious Relations with 'The Jews'] was titled "Religious perspectives on the current financial crisis: vision for a just economic order" ... Papers on the theme were provided by Dr. Meir Tamari, former chief economist of the Bank of Israel ..."

Here are some relevant writings from Rabbi Dr. Meir Tamari, former chief economist of the Bank of Counterfeit Israel, whose 'vision' the Vatican has turned to for direction towards 'a just economic order':
All Jewish sources, however, show that Judaism does not see anything intrinsically wrong with lending money at interest. On the contrary, it is a perfectly normal and beneficial part of economic activity, like the supply of other forms of capital.” (Rabbi Meir Tamari, With All Your Possessions: Jewish Ethics and Economic Life, p. 167

Perhaps the best proof that [according to rabbinic Judaism] taking interest is not regarded as being evil per se, but rather only forbidden because the Torah said so, is the rule that while one may not take interest from other Jews, it is permitted in regard to non-Jews. (Rabbi Meir Tamari, The challenge of wealth: a Jewish perspective on earning and spending money)

"... it is essential to remember that there exist a religious obligation to make interest-free loans available to other Jews ... [however,] one may lend money at interest to non-Jews." (Rabbi Meir Tamari, In the marketplace: Jewish business ethics)

Financial economists may find Meir Tamari’s treatment of interest and profits rather unsatisfactory, and his treatment of Scripture and the Mishnah may also be seen as controversial. One interesting point is the distinction between financial dealings between Jews, where interest is not permissible, and between Jews and Gentiles where it is, the justification for this being in Deutronomy. Maimonides interpreted the Hebrew word tashikh, you may charge a foreigner interest, as you shall charge a gentile interest. It was this that justified Jews becoming involved in moneylending throughout medieval Europe and instrumental in the development of modern banking practice. While relations between Jews and Christians were kept on a business footing, those within the Jewish communities were based on exchanging favours and mutual trust in the absence of interest based transactions. This discriminatory treatment of Jews and Gentiles may be criticised by non-Jews, but it served to strengthen bonds within Judaism and the feeling of a common identity. (Rodney Wilson, "Comparitive Religious Thought on Economic Behavior and Financial Transactions," Journal of the Association of Christian Economists)

http://christian-economists.org.uk/jour_23.pdf

The masses of Jewish migrants from Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries had neither the assets for collateral nor the personal history of financial activity necessary for recourse to the banking systems of their new host societies. Their astonishing economic development would have been totally different to what actually materialized, were it not for the existence of Jewish free loan societies in every country. (Rabbi Meir Tamari, "'Both a Lender and a Borrower Be:' The Challenge of Money)

http://www.ouisrael.org/tidbits/detail/BOTH-A-LENDER-AND-A-BORROWER-BE-part-one-THE-CHALLENGE-OF-MONEY

The corollary is that the astonishing decline in wealth and increase in indebtedness of non-Judaic nations and individuals which has accompanied the astonishing "economic development" of East European 'Jews' would have been "totally different" if it had not been for predatory lending practices which rabbinic teaching readily permits against non-'Jews' as Rabbi Dr. Meir Tamari explains above.

The Bilateral Commission of the Chief Rabbinate of Counterfeit Israel and the 'Holy' See's Commission for Religious Relations with 'The Jews' has issued a statement addressing the present world financial catastrophe. This bilateral commission recognized the unbiblical, talmudic 'Noahide laws' in 2007 according to which, Christian 'idolators' (believers in the Divinity of Jesus Christ and Trinity) should be executed by decapitation.

If you believe that a joint Vatican-Chief Rabbinate of Counterfeit Israel plan for economic reform will bring about any godly change in events, there's a dead 'Messiah' in Brooklyn they probably could also sell you.

The rabbinic canon provides the rationalization for the kind of financial predation witnessed throughout the world today. Moreover, as Thomas Jefferson aptly noted, the rabbis' tradition is practically void and valueless as a reference for ethics and morality.

As readers of symbols we note that the seventh bilateral meeting rolled out the so-called 'Noahide laws' and the eleventh meeting rolls out a so-called 'ethical economic order.'
COMMISSION FOR RELIGIOUS RELATIONS WITH THE JEWS
BILATERAL COMMISSION MEETING
OF THE DELEGATIONS OF THE CHIEF RABBINATE OF ISRAEL AND
THE HOLY SEE’S COMMISSION
FOR RELIGIOUS RELATIONS WITH THE JEWS
(Rome, March 27-29, 2012; Nissan 4-6, 5772)


Joint Statement
1. The Jewish co-chair Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen opened the meeting, giving thanks to God for the historic transformation in Catholic-Jewish relations since the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) and for the establishment of the bilateral commission of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and the Holy See, after the historic visit of Pope John Paul II to Israel.
Cardinal Peter Turkson, the new Catholic co-chair, responded paying tribute to his predecessor Cardinal Jorge Mejía and welcomed the delegations, in particular those who had just joined the bilateral commission. Cardinal Mejía together with Cardinal Cottier, as the former senior members of the Catholic delegation, accompanied by Cardinal Kurt Koch, President of the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, visited with the delegations and expressed their joy at the continuity of this work as a blessing for both communities and for humanity.
2. The theme of this the 11th meeting of the bilateral commission was titled "Religious perspectives on the current financial crisis: vision for a just economic order". The special guest on the first evening was Prof. Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, President of the Vatican’s Istituto per le Opere di Religione, who provided an analysis of the causes of the financial crisis and shared thoughts on possible ways forward. Papers on the theme were provided by Dr. Meir Tamari, former chief economist of the Bank of Israel, and Prof. Stefano Zamagni from the Economic Science Department of the University of Bologna.
3. Following from the presentations and discussion, the following points were highlighted:-
While many factors contributed to the financial crisis, at its roots lies a crisis of moral values in which the importance of having, reflected in a culture of greed, eclipsed the importance of being; and where the value of truth reflected in honesty and transparency was sorely lacking in economic activity.
4. At the heart of Jewish and Catholic visions for a just economic order is the affirmation of the sovereignity and providence of the Creator of the world with whom all wealth originates and which is given to humankind as a gift for the common good.
5. Accordingly, the purpose of an economic order is to serve the wellbeing of society, affirming the human dignity of all people, each created in the Divine Image. While this concept of dignity affirms the value of the person, it is antithetical to egocentricity. Rather, it requires the promotion of the wellbeing of the individual in relation to community and society, emphasizing human obligations and responsibilities accordingly and thereby affirming human solidarity and fraternity.
This posits the obligation to guarantee certain basic human needs, such as the protection of life, sustenance, clothing, housing, health, education and employment.
Particular attention must therefore be given to the vulnerable – the poor, the orphan, the widow the sick and disabled; and the stranger, which in today’s society is particularly relevant to migrant and foreign workers – whose condition serves as a measure of the moral health of society or lack thereof, and the degree of solidarity within it.
6. Furthermore, just as the Divine gift of wealth places obligations upon the recipient in relation to those less fortunate materially; similarly countries with developed economies have the obligation to recognize their responsibilities and duties towards countries and societies in need – especially in this era of globalization.
7. Concepts highlighted for the promotion of a more just economic order included:
- the universal destination of the goods of the earth; a culture of "enough" that implies a degree of self-limitation and modesty; responsible stewardship; an ethical system of allocation of resources and priorities; and the critical importance of honesty, transparency, gratuitousness and accountability.
8. Just as the crisis has required partial remission of debts on national and international levels, there is a need to extend this to families and individuals for their economic self-rehabilitation.
9. The members of the bilateral commission underscored the role that the faith communities must play in contributing to a responsible economic order and the importance of their engagement by government, educational institutions, and the media, to this end.
10. In addition to the ethical wisdom drawn from our spiritual heritages, religious communities are an integral part of civil society, which must play a central role together with politics and business, in ensuring the subsidiarity necessary for a just social and economic order.
11. Furthermore the crisis has revealed the profound lack of the ethical component in economic thinking. Hence, it is imperative that institutes and academies of economic studies and policy formation include ethical training in their curricula, similar to that which has developed in recent years in the field of medical ethics; and also ethical counselling to decision makers on a national and international level.
12. The meeting concluded with prayer to the Source of all blessing that the words of the Psalmist will be fulfilled
"Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed (each other).
Truth shall spring out of the earth and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Yea, the Lord shall give (that which is) good; and our land shall yield her increase.
Righteousness shall go before Him; and shall set (us) in the way of His steps"
(Ps 85,11-14).

Chabad Rabbi Leaves Purim-Celebrating 'Noahide' to Die of Alcohol Poisoning Outside his Gate


The keys for decoding the Chabad deceptions in the following report are as follows:
"It is incumbent upon the individual to drink on Purim until he can no longer distinguish between praising Mordechai and cursing Haman." (Babylonian Talmud, Megillah, 7b)

"If we see that a Gentile's life is in danger, we should not save him." (Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Avodah Kochavim, 10:1)

These ungodly precepts of Orthodox Judaism are published on Chabad's own website HERE and HERE. Evidently, they are put into practical use.

Non-Judaic people, especially Christians, have been bashed over the head with guilt for 60 years for allegedly not doing enough to save 'The Jews' from 'The Holocaust' when the holy books of 'The Jews' tell them not to save the lives of non-'Jews' when they are in danger. The double-standard is so outrageous, it's inconceivable to most people.

People, wake up. Your alleged leaders are forcing relations with the followers of these depraved traditions. There could not be more treacherous direction than this.

Ormond Beach man who drank at Jewish gathering dies in parking lot

Patricio G. Balona - Daytona Beach News-Journal

March 15, 2012

ORMOND BEACH -- A man who was drinking at a Jewish holiday party was found dead in the parking lot of the center where members left him to sleep, police said Wednesday.

Jesse Allen, 28, who moved to Ormond Beach from Meadville, Pa., in November, was found dead Friday morning by the rabbi of the synagogue, a police report shows.

"It was a death that is apparently related to a possible alcohol poisoning," said Ormond Beach police Lt. Kenny Hayes. "There is nothing suspicious about the death."

An autopsy was completed Tuesday, but police are awaiting toxicology test results to determine what killed Allen, Hayes said.

Allen was at a party at the Chabad Lubavitch of Greater Daytona at 1079 W. Granada Blvd., the night before he was found dead, Hayes said.

Rabbi Pinchas Ezagui, 46, said in a telephone interview that at least 100 people were celebrating Purim, a Jewish holiday in which people dress up in costumes.

"It was a very joyous party, a party for family and children," Ezagui said.

Purim is a festive Jewish holiday recounting the deliverance of the Jewish people from an extermination plot by Haman, as recounted in the Bible's Book of Esther. Along with a festive meal, heavy drinking used to be part of the tradition, though that is officially discouraged now, according to the website meirpanim.org ["officially" heavy drinking is said to be discouraged in P.R. material directed towards the public, but this is not so in actual practice].

Ezagui said alcohol was not served at Thursday's party, though some families brought alcoholic beverages with them.

"We don't serve it, but there is a bottle here and a bottle there," Ezagui said.

The rabbi told police he saw Allen come into the building for the party about 8 p.m. Thursday.

Later, Ezagui saw Allen was intoxicated to the point that he had urinated in his pants, the report states.

A member of the Jewish group, Igor Nikomarov, 24, escorted Allen out of the center. Nikomarov left Allen on the grass to sleep his drunkenness off, police said. Nikomarov did not return a reporter's call seeking comment Wednesday.

"It is a very unfortunate situation," Ezagui said. "We don't know the guy. He is not of the Jewish faith."

Allen's mother, Lynn Allen, said her son loved Jewish tradition and in an email he told her he was excited to go the Purim.

She said her son loved to play drums and guitar and "sang like an angel and composed praise songs." She will always remember her son as a giving and helpful person. Just before he left Pennsylvania, Jesse Allen gave his bicycle, his only means of transportation, to an Afghanistan veteran who had been on three tours in the war, his mother said.

Lynn Allen said her son was working on overcoming a problem with alcohol and she thought he had stopped drinking recently. She was struggling to understand why her son was left on the grass after the party.

"It's not the rabbi's fault that my son drank," Lynn Allen said. "But as a community we look after each other and in Pennsylvania we are struggling to understand why they left him there."

'Noahide' Proselytizing Rabbi Riskin: "The Lubavitcher Rebbe said to me ..."

UPDATED, MARCH 7

This is a followup to the previous entry on the 'Noahide law' proselytizing Rabbi Shlomo Riskin who the bishops see fit to send priests to learn from so that they will relay his teaching to us.

Like so many prominent Judaic figures (HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE) Rabbi Shlomo Riskin is guided by direction he received from 'The Rebbe' of the Chabad Lubavitch cult, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, a hater of Jesus Christ who judged Christian faith to be a mental illness. In the video below, Riskin candidly states the guiding principle taught to him by 'Rebbe' Schneerson:
"The Rebbe said to me, 'I want you to know that in every battle there are certain people who have to dress up like the enemy, and they have to go into the enemy's territory, and their own co-religionists will think that they are turncoats; that they've become rebels, but without those people the battle can't be won, and you [Rabbi Shlomo Riskin] will win the war ... you must produce shluchim [agents] for the entire world who are modern on the outside and Chabad on the inside.'"

And that goes to show why many of us view Orthodox Judaism not as a religion but as cult, mob and intelligence agency all covered with a religious veneer.

The video below from which the above quotation is taken is well worth the time for those who have it and would like to have clear understanding of Rabbi Riskin, a self-described closet Chabdnik who puts on a suit and tie so as not to draw suspicion he so well deserves from "enemy" 'Goyim' as he cajoles and deceives them into Noahidism, with the Bishops' encouragement.

In the video you'll also learn the background on Rabbi Riskin's illegal landgrab in the West Bank of Palestine, (even more on that topic HERE.) The video also contains candid elucidation of the tribal megalomania inherent to rabbinic Judaism and the extreme degree to which biblical concepts are wrenched from their true end--man loving and serving his Creator--and twisted towards the depraved end of God and the universe existing only to love and serve 'The Jews.' You'll also hear Riskin preach the end-justifies-the-means doctrine of redemption through defilement ('descend in order to rise') which evidently justifies Schneerson's direction to his agents to pretend to be part of society in order to subvert it as Samuel Heilman and Menachem Friedman observed in their Schneerson biography, Rabbi Schneerson’s agents, “would act as agents provocateurs, people who seemed open to modernity and America, but only in order to change it” (Samuel Heilman, Menachem Friedman, The Rebbe: The Life and Afterlife of Menachem Mendel Schneerson, p.154)




In January 2011, Pope Benedict told the Palestinian Land Grabber and 'Noahide Law' proselytizing con man, Rabbi Riskin, “we need to work together." Evidently, these were not empty words.

'Noahide Law' Proselytizing Rabbi Riskin Trains South American Priests in Counterfeit Israel

We have been warning of the zealous 'Noahide Law' proselytizing Rabbi Shlomo Riskin for years to no evident effect. Now he is bringing Catholic priests from around the world to his "Interfaith center" in counterfeit Israel to train them in "dual-covenant theology" (a euphemism for Rabbinic Judaism's lopsided dual-covenant 'Jew'/'Noahide' system) which, in turn, is expected to be taught by these priests at the parish level. This is happening with the approval of the bishops and the Pope himself whose 'Papal Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews' officially recognized the rabbi-concocted 'Noahide Laws' in 2007 HERE and HERE.

We know of no other voice within Catholicism speaking critically of this indisputably documented catastrophe of Christians being unequally yoked to the rabbis via their 'dialogue,' 'interfaith relations,' 'Holocaust education' et al; deceptive platforms for proselytism away from the Gospel and towards 'Noahidism.' So long as this remains the state of affairs and fanatical Messianic Zionist rabbis of anti-Christ Judaism are training priests, expect things to continue to become much, much worse. Don't deceive yourself into believing 'the gates of hell won't prevail' over such cowardice.

Jewish-Catholic Educational Mission In Israel Completed

March 1, 2012 - Eurasia Review

A dream was actualized this week as a delegation of young Catholic Priests from Latin American, along with their local Jewish clergy counterparts, completed a Jewish-Christian educational mission in Israel.

While in Israel the delegation discovered commonalities between their faiths, studied their joint histories, and established important groundwork including practical models to advance Jewish-Catholic relations back in their respective communities.

Participants joined from Brazil, Argentina and Colombia thanks to three partnering organizations who worked in tandem to make this opportunity a reality – the World Jewish Diplomatic Corps (WJDC), the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding and Cooperation (CJCUC) and the Latin American Jewish Congress (LAJC). Priests were selected in cooperation with the Archbishops of São Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Bogota.

“Since the Second Vatican Council, many Catholic and Jewish theologians have paved the way for our moment together in Israel,” said CJCUC’s Founder and Chancellor Rabbi Shlomo Riskin. He added “Unfortunately, both the Jewish and Christian communities are still unaware of these advancements. The purpose of this mission was to equip and empower these young priests to bring knowledge and understanding to their communities.”

Rabbis and Jewish educators also participated to aid and facilitate future, follow-up programming at the local levels. “There is no question an experience in Israel can transform a person; however, once that individual goes home, it is easy to return back to the responsibilities of everyday life,” said Claudio Epelman, Executive Director of the LAJC. “It is important we provide a network of local support and resources to help these leaders build upon what they learned in the Holy Land.”

Half of the 1.2 billion Catholics around the world live in the Americas. “Pockets of cooperation exist between the Jewish and Catholic communities in Latin America, but a deeper acquaintance and cooperation is needed in this important continent,” remarked Adam Koffler, Chairman of the WJDC. Koffler added, “We are living in a new era in Jewish-Catholic relations where both faith communities can play a significant role in solving global issues together.”

In addition to high-profile meetings with Bishop William Shomali, Auxiliary Bishop and Patriarchal vicar for Jerusalem at the Latin Patriarchate, and Israeli Ambassador (ret.) Oded Eran the delegation visited both Jewish and Christian holy sites throughout the country and had opportunities to learn from experienced theologians working to advance Jewish-Catholic relations for decades.

Commenting on the importance to visit Israel and learn about the advancements of Jewish-Catholic relations, Father Pedro Pereira of Brazil said, “here [in Brazil] we see the Jewish nation as a living covenantal faith community and not a relic in the past.” He added, “It also gave us insight in understanding Jewish identity and how that it is intertwined in a collective responsibility for all communities around the world.”

Schneerson, Brit-ish Empire, NILI notes

Another Baby Dies of Herpes Transmitted Orally by Rabbi During 'Religious Ritual'

Dear reader, in keeping with Talmud-mandated tradition (Babylonian Talmud, Shabbos 133a-133b) the rabbis of Orthodox Judaism are cutting babies' penises, putting their mouths directly on the wounded penises, sucking blood from the penises and passing along whatever pathogens they may have in their mouths to the bloodstream of the babies whose immune systems are undeveloped resulting in infection, disease, brain damage and even death of the infants.

What a Talmudic sewer we live in where Catholicism is rent asunder ostensibly due to sexual predation which is absolutely contrary to Catholic teaching while the State zealously protects Orthodox Judaism's religiously mandated sex predation of babies even when babies are dying because of it; where Catholics are ridiculed for "vampirism" while rabbis (or 'mohels') do in fact suck blood from babies' penises and this disgusting tradition is treated with the the most strained sensitivity, threadbare euphemisms and covered up with every kind of sophistry and legal subterfuge. The report below comes FIVE MONTHS after the event and even then the name of the 'mohel' responsible for the infant's death is still covered up. The rabbinic code of silence ('mesira') is blatantly in place in 'our' government and media.

Dear Traditionalists, Conservatives, Patriots, Nationalists, et al, this disgusting tradition is the tradition of the Rabbi-gangster, Mayer Schiller and the many others whose endorsement and sponsorship is so craved by your kapo leaders. This is not your destiny--to be lorded over by these depraved, cruel, self-worshiping Pharisaic taskmasters and their self-contrived, self-exulting traditions and laws that Jesus Christ freed us from.

Infant's death at Maimonides Hospital linked to circumcision

Unidentified infant died in September of 2011 after contracting herpes


By Thomas Zambito / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Saturday, March 3, 2012

A two-week old boy died at a Brooklyn hospital in September after contracting herpes through a religious circumcision ritual that ignited controversy in 2005 after another infant died, the Daily News has learned.

The unidentified infant died Sept. 28, 2011, at Maimonides Hospital, according to a spokeswoman for the city Medical Examiner, who confirmed the death after a News inquiry.

The cause of death was listed as “disseminated herpes simplex virus Type 1, complicating ritual circumcision with oral suction.”

City officials declined to comment Friday.

It’s unclear who performed the circumcision.

In 2004, city health officials revealed that a baby boy died after a circumcision carried out by a Rockland County rabbi who specializes in the centuries-old, ultra-Orthodox ritual known as metzizah b’ peh.

Under the practice, the rabbi or mohel removes blood from the wound with his mouth — a practice city health officials have criticized, saying it carried “inherent risks” for babies.

In 2004, three infants circumcised by Rabbi Yitzchok Fischer were determined to have contracted herpes, city officials said.

Among them were twins circumcised in October 2004 after Fischer performed the religious ceremony known as a bris.
