Some Jews promoting Anti-Catholicism, prior to Pope’s synagogue visit

A high-profile stayaway Sunday is the president of Italy’s assembly of rabbis, Giuseppe Laras, who said Benedict had “weakened” ties between Catholics and Jews.

Israel’s ambassador to the Holy See will attend but remarked that “Catholic anti-Judaism still exists”.

Adding fuel to the fire, the head of the Roman Catholic Church on Friday urged Vatican doctrinal experts to speed rapprochement with a Catholic fraternity that includes a Holocaust-denying bishop, Richard Williamson.

Renzo Gattegna, who heads the Union of Communities of Italian Jews, said: “It cannot be denied that some decisions taken by the current pope in 2009 led to moments of tension and concern on the Jewish side.”

Gattegna listed the Pius XII and Williamson affairs as well as Benedict’s decision to rehabilitate the Latin version of the Catholic Church’s Good Friday mass, which contains a prayer for the conversion of the Jews.

Editor’s note: Self-serving historical revisionists continue to cling to their purely fictional belief that Pope Pius XII, who was virtually held hostage in the Vatican during WWII, surrounded by occupying Nazi/Fascist forces, in constant personal danger, with only a handful of poorly armed Swiss guards at his disposal, should have somehow been able to save the Jews … something that the world powers of the time (Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, Charles DeGaulle, many others) were unable or unwilling to do.

This anti-Catholic, anti-Christian position has its’ roots in the liberal, secular, socialist/communist philosophies that are so common today throughout Europe and Israel. This is similar to President Barack Obama’s current political strategy, where truth is nothing more than what you say it is!
