BARCELONA HERE WE COME
by Barry Chamish
The buildup to the Barcelona Conference of the Mediterranean Union, which has promised to bring everlasting peace to the Middle East its way, is a synod taking place right now in the Vatican. First, let's look at how the Jewish ignoramuses view the event in their signature news outlet. I refuse to quote the piece. It hurts too much:
Now let's look at a far more complex report:
The Synod Begins
The Catholic Church's special "Synod on the Middle East" opened today in Rome with a Mass in St. Peter's Basilica. The purpose is mainly pastoral: to consider how the Church can better live her mission in that region of the world. But the problematic political tensions in the region are also a concern...
"Salvation is universal, but it passes through a specific historical mediation: the mediation of the people of Israel, which goes on to become that of Jesus Christ and the Church." ÂPope Benedict XVI, Homily, Opening Mass of the Synod on the Middle East, St. Peter's Basilica, Sunday, October 10, 2010
And, the Pope continued, the way is not simply to be understood as the possession of an earthly territory, an earthly homeland, an earthly "Promised Land."
This 'land' is not of this world; the whole of the divine plan goes beyond history, but the Lord wants to build it with men, for men and in men, beginning with the coordinates of space and time in which they live and which He Himself gave them."
This, in a sense, is the central message of this Synod, already stated beforehand by the Pope in this opening homily.
The message is that the "Promised Land" of freedom and peace to which God wishes to lead "His" people is, yes, "not of this world," for, as the Pope says, "the whole of the divine plan goes beyond history."
And yet, at the same time, "the Lord wishes to build it [the Promised Land] with men, for men and in men, beginning with the coordinates of space and time in which they live and which He Himself gave them."
In short, and this did not take great analytic powers, the Pope has announced that Israel doesn't exist. It's just a question of time and "mediation" until Israel realizes this. Then those pesky Jews will covert to "Jesus Christ and the Church." Unless I misread his Mass, the pope actually said that, though claiming he was referring not to Jews but to salvation.
A major planner of this synod has been at the head of the destroy-Israel movement for two decades, David Jaeger. While Oslo was being negotiated in 1994, another part of the "peace" agreement was also being negotiated; The Vatican-Israel Treaty. In fact, Oslo and Vatican were being negotiated together and for the same destructive purposes. The Israeli negotiators of the Vatican deal were Shimon Peres and Yossi Beilin. The Vatican's chief negotiator was Father David Jaeger:
> Temple Mount yes, Mount Sinai no
> Dr. David Jaeger, the Vatican's legal advisor in negotiations with Israel, presented an interesting fact pertaining to the status of holy sites: According to the United Nations resolution on November 29, 1947, Jerusalem is considered a "corpus separatum" that belongs neither to the Jewish or Palestinian state. Therefore, the Jordanian occupation of Jerusalem after the Israeli War of Independence was considered, like the Israeli occupation after the Six-Day War, to be "illegal."
The Reuters news agency on Thursday, October 7, ran an interview with Franciscan Father David Jaeger, a convert from Judaism who became a Roman Catholic priest in 1986, and who is a respected canon lawyer. He was part of the Vatican team that negotiated diplomatic relations with Israel in 1994 and is part of the Vatican team that is still ironing out the details of that accord. He was asked, "Do you fear that Israel may become the whipping boy at the synod?"
Father Jaeger: I reject this whole way of looking at the Synod. The Synod is not there to take positions on any political questions, for or against any country. The Church is not there for that in the first place, least of all the Holy See. The Holy See and the assemblies it convenes, such as the Synod, and the pronouncements of the Pope do not intervene, by their very nature, in temporal disputes between nations and states. They give moral judgments on the moral dimensions of temporal issues, in the name of God.
And what is God's judgement? Well strangely, it's the same as the Vatican's. Israel is not in the same theocratic ballpark.
ONWARD TO THE MEDITERRANEAN UNION CONFERENCE:
The MU was hatched with President Peres', speaking for all Israelis, enthusiastic support:
Peres supports â€˜100 percentâ€™ Sarkozyâ€™s plan for Mediterranean Union
"I support 100 percent the plan," Peres, who is on a five-day state visit to France, said in an interview with French radio Europe 1. "The entire (Israeli) government is in favour of Sarkozyâ€™s initiative of course," he added. "North Europe countries, the Maghreb countries in the south and the Arab countries in the middle, why not cooperate on what is possible?," he asked, recalling that Europe started with a union on coal and steel.
But current prime minister Netanyahu is right on board, vowing to meet the actor assigned the part of Palestinian president, Mahmud Abbas, in Paris, a month before the MU meet, to sort through details. You see, until the US mid-term elections are finished, five days before the MU conference, Pres. Obama dares not lift the whip to Israel. So Netanyahu is building and Abbas is stalling. It is up to the MU to handle the flogging:
French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos are to arrive in Israel Sunday to move ahead President Nicolas Sarkozy's idea of a summit in Paris later this month between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
According to French diplomats and officials in Netanyahu's bureau, the two leaders have expressed willingness to take part in a summit, planned for October 21. However, implementation would depend on the decision of the Arab League summit on Friday and on a solution to the crisis over the end of the construction freeze in the settlements. Sarkozy's "excuse" for the Paris meeting is the need to prepare for the summit of the Mediterranean Union, scheduled for late November in Barcelona.
A senior Israeli official said Sarkozy would like to use a summit in Paris and the Barcelona conference to give France a more central role in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Guess who's coming to Barcelona? Why it's Pope Ratzinger of the Wermacht. And the celebrations in Barcelona have just begun for him:
Israeli, Palestinian Politicians Continue Dialogue
BARCELONA, Spain, OCT. 5, 2010 (Zenit.org).- The founder of the Community of Sant'Egidio is affirming that although reconciliation in the Middle East is difficult, once accomplished it will be a sign of a new era.
Andrea Riccardi stated this at the 25th International Meeting of Prayer for Peace, an annual gathering held as a continuation of the first interreligious and intercultural meeting called in 1986 in Assisi by Pope John Paul II
The three-day meeting, promoted by the Sant'Egidio Community, ended today in Barcelona. This year's event focused in a particular way on the situation in the Middle East, with the theme "Coexistence in a Time of Crisis: Family of Peoples, Family of God."
Papal link: The meeting began on Sunday morning with a Mass presided over by the archbishop of Barcelona, Cardinal LluÃs MartÃnez Sistach.During the Mass, a message from Benedict XVI to the meeting participants was read. Cardinal Sistach noted that this global summit of religions and cultures is tied to the visit the Pontiff will make to Barcelona next month. In a press conference preceding the peace gathering, the cardinal affirmed, "Meeting here during these days is a family of peoples, which is the family of God, and it is something much desired by Benedict XVI, as is the dialogue between religions."
With the MU composed of five Catholic states and five Muslim nations, the odds are stacked a bit heavily against Israel. To usher in the MU conference, look what a nice thing Spain and its king, Juan Carlos, has done for the Palestinians. For those who find significance in dates, November 20/10 will be the 35th anniversary of Gen. Franco's death, followed by Prince Juan Carlos becoming the King of Spain. Maybe that is significant, we may never know:
MADRID, Sep 10, 2010 (AFP) - Spain's government said Friday it plans to upgrade the Palestinian diplomatic mission in Madrid due to the prospect of an eventual "creation and recognition of a Palestinian state." The "General Delegation of Palestine" that has been in the Spanish capital since 1986 will henceforth be called the "Palestine diplomatic mission," the foreign ministry said in a statement. It said the head of the mission will have the status of ambassador, and will be formally accredited in a ceremony by King Juan Carlos. Spain said the decision "reaffirms the friendship and solidarity that unites the Spanish people and the Palestinian people."
As far as I've found, only one pro-Israel source was outraged by Spain unilaterally recognizing the new state of Palestine. All the Jews were otherwise anesthetized or buying new clothes for the November gala in Barcelona:
Spain Recognizes Non-Existent Palestinian State
"Today, Foreign Minister Moratinos, has announced that Spain will behave diplomatically as if The PA was the government of The Palestinian State, its mission in Madrid being given diplomatic status of an Embassy as well as The consulate in East Jerusalem, that from today will be a Spanish Embassy.
He will encourage others to follow in preparation for the coming declaration of independence."
We have been keeping you informed of the growing movement to legitimize a Palestinian State outside the normal international framework of the creation of a State. Spain's action is a big step toward establishing such an entity. It completely sidelines Israel on this issue, so it is not dependent on Israel's approval. By ignoring Israel it sets the stage for the international community to recognize a Palestinian State along the 1967 boundaries. The Palestinians do not have to agree to anything to get this "prize." Therefore their demands for the so called right of return, their demands for Jerusalem to be their capital, and their refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish State will be granted to them and they will be asked for nothing in return.
Spain, as a major state in the European Union, is providing political cover for several other states that are vehement opponents of Israel. This development is a very serious.
And now all the pieces are in place for the checkmate of Israel next month in Barcelona. As for the Jews who will lose their homes and sovereignty...they're too busy blaming Arabs and Iran to bother noticing who really controls Israel's destiny. Or they think, it'll be okay, God will intervene. They don't see the essential message of their Torah. God does not intervene, he helps.
Spain - Press conference with the President of the Government and the Prime Minister of the Palestinian National Authority following the high-level meeting between Spain and the Palestinian National Authority
Quote President of the Government:
This is our opinion as the Government of Spain, and this is the opinion that we are going to convey to the European institutions, and of course to the North American Administration and that we have conveyed to the Palestinian Authority. The Union for the Mediterranean Summit will be held... for those members of the Union for the Mediterranean, the parties and countries that form a part of this important forum that can contribute to the peace process.
I'm doing it again. Enough readers bought my PDF version of Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism And The Holocaust, that I present my book Bye Bye Gaza with the same rules. PLAY FAIRLY!
If you want to know the real story of how the Jews of Gaza were forced to abandon their homes and live in poverty, if you want to know how their teenagers were turned into mindless hippies by one rabbi, how the demonstrators were infiltrated by one Secret Service agent and his gang, how Sharon was removed permanently after the operation was done and the foreign powers whose knife was in Sharon's back, read Bye Bye Gaza...and pay me modestly for the intellectual treat.
ANOTHER DARING EXPERIMENT
Quote from reader this week:
"Bye Bye Gaza is terrible. That's really shakened me. I shall tell my former dentist who was an Israeli about it and get him to order it from you. I can't afford to give him a copy. I tried to tell a former colleague about your books, but she's the typical staunch supporter of Jews no matter what they do and doesn't want to hear it. I think you will have difficulty awakening the Jews. They'll brand you a self-hating Jew."
The book is yours for just $10. Now who, all asked, would pay $10 when I just sent it for free? This is where the honor system enters from stage left.
I have only sent the book to trusted readers. No site or newsgroup received it. There is no news written that could be reprinted anywhere. It's, for now, just you and me. Now, I'm not the total sucker I'm widely assumed to be. I know some won't pay and some might. The some might is reward enough for me and for those loyal readers who cannot afford to pay.
For those who can, here are my rules, with no way to ever enforce them... BUT ONE. If you read the whole book, and can afford it, you bought it. The fifteenth anniversary of Rabin's murder is coming up, if you buy Bye Bye Gaza, I'll e-mail you my classic book, Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin. And if you forward Bye Bye Gaza, try to pay me $5. a book for each recipient. And here it is:
