Embattled hierarchy seeks Jewish allies

The Catholic Church has come out against anti-Zionism—any serious critique of the State of Israel or its dangerous policies—as “anti-Semitism.” A joint meeting in Buenos Aires of Catholic and Jewish “intellectuals” released a statement declaring: "We oppose anti-Semitism in any way and form, including anti-Zionism that has become of late a manifestation of anti-Semitism."

Even the United Nations has condemned Zionism as "racism"--given the fact that it is a "philosophy" founded on the supposed racial superiority of Jews, while Colin L. Powell recently declared that criticism against Israeli policies is not "anti-Semitic."

While an Inquisition to burn “anti-Semitic” heretics alive at the stake was not proposed at the joint meeting, worldwide Jewish attempts to violate human rights in criminalizing anti-Zionist dissent will continue, with no Catholic opposition.

The “intellectuals” also met with Argentine President Nestor Kirchner, a Jew, who promised to harass other regional leaders into signing a “petition” against “anti-Semitism.”

Zionist leaders warmly applauded this new Catholic philo-Zionist contortion which critics see as the latest desperate attempt in Catholic leadership circles to gain allies in the face of snowballing child rape scandals that have led at least one US Catholic archdiocese to seek bankruptcy protection while the church hemorrhages adherents, with those remaining in the pews ignoring church pronouncements on political and lifestyle issues. Other pro-Zionist noises of late have included “apologies” to Jews for supposed historical “wrongs” and the opening of “files” on Pius XII, the Second World War era head of the church slandered in the Jewish press as “Hitler’s Pope.” Declared Ilan Steinberg, director of the World Jewish Congress, "For the first time, the Catholic Church recognizes in anti-Zionism an attack not only against Jews, but against the whole Jewish people." Another Jewish leader in New York gloated that "In the past, Zionism was equated with racism, and this statement turns anti-Zionism statements to a form of racism."

Zionism is a racist political “philosophy” that sees the Jews as a race as literally “God’s Chosen People” entitled to lands supposedly promised to them in bronze-age myths.
