There is a 26 foot cross (a symbol of worshipping a false idol for Jews) at Auschwitz – Pope John Paul’s cross! What hubris and disrespect at a site to commemorate the genocide of Jews, many at the hands of Catholics! (They made a god out of a dead Jew and began denigrating and murdering Jews)! Jerzy Kichler, former head of Poland’s Union of Jewish Councils, noted that Jewish tradition does not allow Jews to pray for dead relatives in the presence of symbols belonging to another religion.
The late (2012) Coptic Catholic Pope Shenouda III, viewed as one of the “great” patriarchs, banned his followers from traveling to Jerusalem while it was under Israeli control. Members who didn’t follow his direction faced ex-communication from the Church. Shenouda even instructed clergymen in Jerusalem NOT to offer communion to pilgrims visiting Jerusalem!
Shenouda III told Yasser Arafat, the father of modern terrorism, “All our people are with you. We ask G-d that he saves you from the situation you are in… we hope to come visit you there in ‘Palestine.”’ The Coptic Catholic leader also met with Assad and called for a fight to “liberate” Arab territories.
Shenouda proclaimed, “The Western Churches were wrong to exonerate the Jews for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.” He CRITICIZED apologies for Christian anti-Semitism and REJECTED any normalization with Israel.
“We refute the thesis that the Jews are G-d’s Chosen People because with the advent of Christianity the words ‘chosen people’ became obsolete.” Shenouda stated.
“Hamas was “doing its duty” and Arab states should help the “Palestinians” fighting the Israeli “occupation,” stated the Coptic Pope. He justified the jihad: “The Jews will not leave Jerusalem through negotiations. They will leave it only through blood because of its great importance to them.”
(Punishment has befallen these people).
Mother Teresa denied the existence of Polish anti-Semitism before WWII. She said that “Jews were an insignificant minority group in Poland with a majority of privileges” and accused Israel of anti-Semitism for “mistreating the Arabs.” “Greater anti-Semites are hard to find,” than the Israelis, intoned the Jew-hating nun.
Another Mother Teresa quote: “Why do Jews want special treatment in Auschwitz only for themselves? Do they still consider themselves the chosen people?”
The “Not So Blessed” Mother Teresa was in favor of the Carmelite nuns building their convent at Auschwitz, which was built where the Zyklon-B gas used in the gas chambers was stored.
Here’s a religion that worships Joshua – his real name – and dishonors this man by harming his people. At the time that Joshua/Jesus lived, hundreds of people claimed to be messiahs. However, we know from Maimonides that this was certainly not a messiah, maybe a “ghost.”
In the Mishneh Torah, Maimonides explains that Christianity and Islam are not true and have an incorrect idea of Messiah, Torah and Mitzvot. (Both have been violently triumphalist and supremacist. Both groups have killed in the names of their gods).
“Can there be a greater stumbling block that this (Christianity)? That all the prophets spoke that the Messiah will redeem Israel and save them, and gather their dispersed and strengthen their Mitzvot, and this one – Jesus – caused the Jews to be destroyed by the sword and scattered their remnants and humbled them, and exchanged the Torah, and cause of the majority of the world to err to serve a god other than the Lord…”
In other words, if either Jesus or Mohammed were the Messiah, Israel and the Jewish people would NOT be in jeopardy and humankind would follow the Torah.
“And all these matters of Jesus of Nazareth and that of the Ishmaelite (Mohammed) who arose after him are only to straighten the way of the king Messiah and to fix the entire world, to serve G-d as one.”
Christianity and Islam are bumps along the road that leads to redemption. Their imperfect “ethical” monotheism involving an incorrect idea of Messiah, Torah and Mitzvot, will be rectified through the return to the ancient Seven Laws of Noah meant for all humanity.
“And when the true Messiah stands, and he is successful and is raised and exalted, immediately they all will retract and will know that fallacy they inherited from their fathers, and that their prophets and fathers cause them to err.”
Maimonides says that G-d’s plan will not be altered by the rise of other religions. When Messiah comes, Judaism will return to its pure, original form, to be taught by the Messiah, G-d’s true messenger. All other religions will abandon their fallacies. Messiah serves to unite all Jews and all nations to serve the one true word of G-d. (NOTE: No violence; just the coming of the Truth).
