Pope Benedict XVI open his mouth again to lecture Iran on anti-Semitism. He is the same guy who has, with his stupid statements, created hatred between Christians and Muslims.
|VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI today targeted Iran as he vowed to help fight anti-Semitism, a top official of the World Jewish Congress said following an audience with the pontiff.“We thanked the Holy Father for everything he did for the Jewish people, and more importantly what he will do,” WJC vice secretary general Maram Stern told AFP.The pope “recognised the question of Iran as an issue of big concern for him,” Stern said, adding that Benedict pledged “to find how the message can be made, through education, to avoid the hatred of the Iranian leadership towards the Jews and Israel.“He expressed his concern over the rise in anti-Semitism. The Holy Father said he was very aware of it (and wants to) find a way to make it less prominent through education,” Stern said.The pontiff said “co-operation between the Jewish people and the Church is a matter that is close to his heart,” Stern said, describing the meeting as “interesting and cordial.”New WJC President Ronald Lauder, who headed the delegation, said that the pope had agreed in principle to host a “joint event” with him when Benedict visits New York next year.
WJC Secretary General Michael Schneider was also present at the audience.Iran’s government vehemently denies charges of anti-Semitism, pointing to the peaceful existence in Iran of a 20,000-strong Jewish community, the largest in the Middle East outside Israel.Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad provoked an international outcry shortly after his election in 2005 when he called for Israel to be “wiped from the map” and also described the Holocaust as a “myth”.He has since toned down his rhetoric but last week he reaffirmed his deeply controversial questioning of the mass slaughter of Jews in World War II and his suggestion that Israel could be moved to arctic North America.

Pope criticizes Hugo Chavez democratically elected popular government repeating the allegations of US and European countries.
|Today, the Pope said, the Church faces the challenges brought by a global economy which “brings with it the risk of vast monopolies and of treating profit as the supreme value.” In Latin America, he added, there is another disquieting trend: “authoritarian forms of government and regimes wedded to certain ideologies that we thought had been superseded.” Here the Pope seemed clearly to be referring to leftist governments such as the Venezuelan regime of Hugo Chavez, who has clashed frequently with Church leaders there.
Pope should explain in detail why questioning Holocaust is such a big sin. There are people who believe that the Holocaust deaths are way too high to be true, all they want to study this historic event in detail which is not illogical drawing so much anger in Europe and US. Look like that Zionists don’t want independent group to study his historic event.
Pope just shut up (Shut up is to0 polite, STFU is appropriate). You are not a person to give advice to Ahmadinejad or as a matter of fact nobody.

Hugo Chavez news are always interesting and this news was reported yesterday is no exception where he called Honduran Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga “imperial clown” replying to his accusations of increasing authoritarianism. Hugo Chavez statements are always blunt without any diplomacy.
“Another parrot of imperialism appeared, this time dressed as a cardinal. That’s to say, another imperialist clown”.
This Cardinal is considered the moderate, is the most prominent Catholic leaders in Americas and could be the possible Pope. Hugo Chavez also called Venezuelan Catholic leaders and “liars” and “perverts” and advice them to stop interfering in politics. Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga will be another joke if selected next Pope after Benedict which will certainly not help Catholic ideology.
The following is lengthy informative article about Hugo Chavez and Bush regime which analyzes the situation fairly.
Where is Venezuela going? Chavez and the meaning of 21st century socialism.
Hugo Chavez is democratically elected very popular President of Venezuela harshly criticized by US and Western Countries media and Bush regime with false propaganda. Hugo Chavez is doing what US should be doing to change the lives of common poor people. I support Hugo Chavez for all his good efforts to improve the lives of common poor people.

President Hugo Chavez sought Benedict XVI’s apology for offending native peoples during the pope’s recent attempt to reach out to Latin American Roman Catholics.
“As a head of state, I beg your holiness to apologize to the peoples of our Americas,” said Chavez, speaking late Friday.
“I believe it is the right thing to do.”
Benedict XVI made quite an impression on his first visit to Latin America, home to about half of his flock, when he said last week that “Christianity was not imposed by a foreign culture.”
“Christ was the Savior (America’s natives) silently yearned for,” the pope said in Brazil.
Benedict also called a recent resurgence of pre-Columbian religions “a step backward,” drawing protests from native peoples as far away as Mexico.
Natives in Ecuador also questioned Benedict’s version of events.
“Surely, the pope does not know that representatives of the Catholic Church of those times, with honorable exceptions, were accomplices, deceivers and beneficiaries of one of the most horrific genocides of all humanity,” the Confederation of Indigenous Nations said in a statement Saturday.
The pope’s statements were still on Chavez’s mind Saturday: “How could you say that they came — when they came with arquebuses (firearms) to evangelize — with no sort of imposition?”
The conquest of Latin America by Europeans “was something far worse than the Holocaust in the Second World War and no one can deny it, not even your Holiness can deny the Holocaust of the natives of our land.”
“Christ arrived much later to America; he did not arrive with (Christopher) Columbus.
That was the arrival of the anti-Christ,” said Chavez, whose speeches frequently rely on Christian teachings and baseball metaphors.
Chavez and the Roman Catholic Church have had rough relations, which have improved in the past year, with new Caracas archbishop Jorge Urosa.
Chavez has met once with Benedict, in May 2006.

Whenever Pope opens his holy mouth he say something stupid. Pope Benedict handlers must keep his mouth taped which will save Catholic Church plenty of embarrassments.

Pope Benedict should have canceled his visit after making stupid comments about Prophet Muhammad and Islam. The Turks are demontrated in Istanbul yesterday against his visit and there will be many more huge demonstrations when he arrive there tomorrow. The Turkish government that this racists Pope visit will help them to join the European Union I believe ignoring the fact that he has spoken clearly not to let the Muslim nation join the EU.
Pope Benedict XVI and Islam
This Pope who is trying to improve his public image in the Muslim world will not gain much support and it will be interesting to watch and see the demonstration against him.

Pope Benedict XVI has added an explanatory note on his quote on which he included in his speech. The damage is already done your holiness and you do not understand this because you are blinded with your religious beliefs.
The quote of Manuel II “”Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
The following is the explanation given by his old his highness.
“In the Muslim world, this quotation has unfortunately been taken as an expression of my personal position, thus arousing understandable indignation,” the note said.
“I hope that the reader of my text can see immediately that this sentence does not express my personal view of the Quran, for which I have the respect due to the holy book of a great religion,”. “In quoting the text of the Emperor Manuel II, I intended solely to draw out the essential relationship between faith and reason. On this point I am in agreement with Manuel II, but without endorsing his polemic,” he said.
Pope is really not a very intelligent person or maybe his age has taken away his rational thinking. You quoted Manuel II as the part of the speech and you have the same understanding that Islam has brought nothing but evil and inhumane and is spread using sword. Read your statement again and come up with some different approach.
Pope Benedict XVI you are no better than any other religious scholar of Islam or Judaism who preaches hatred in the name of religion. I have no respect for any such scholar no matter what religious belief they teaches and preaches. Shut up now and don’t open your mouth again. Keep smiling and waving hand from the window.

There are many headline news related to violence killing of a Catholic Priest for Pope’s comments. Bush and Blair regime trying to discredit the new report of 665,000 Iraqi civilian death since these regime illegal criminal invasion and occupation of Iraq. There is one news that Sunni and Shias clerics will call for sectarian peace from Mecca.
The news about killing some Iraqi Catholic Priest is very very very sad ignorant act of terrorism. The murdered Priest had no authority on Pope’s statements or his views, this poor guy was in no position to ask Pope Benedict to apologise for his comments. The people who had murdered this Priest for the love of God are not actually God’s people and they are not the protector of God’s religions. These murderers are the ignorant fools and aides of Devil. I have deep sympathy for the Iraqi Catholic Christians for the brutal murder of their Priest. May God provide comfort to forget this loss.
North Korea nuclear threat is main topic on all mainstream media talk shows and news and Republicans are trying their best to frame it as the failure of Bill Clinton administration like Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Bush regime with all its arrogance is trying to impose strict sanctions on North Korea which will escalate the problem because Kim Jong Il government want the international community to ease of some of their country hardships with financial aid. China has backed off from imposing hard sanctions on North Korea and this is the right approach in bringing the matter to resolve peacefully. Russia and China on Thursday opposed tough sanctions the U.S. wants to impose against North Korea this week for its claimed nuclear test, saying they want time to work out a more moderate response to Pyongyang’s nuclear brinkmanship. After several hours of closed-door negotiations late in the day, Russia and China — the two Security Council nations closest to Pyongyang — reported good progress.
I did mentioned the sectarian violence couple of weeks back which can immediately be stopped by one statement coming out of Grand Satan Sistani mouth. The call for peace from Mecca will not really do any good for this sectarian violence because Grand Satan Sistani silence is kind of approval for the Shias to kill Sunnis. The man who is treated like god among Iraqi Shias had not spoken since Muqtada Al Sadr incident and he intervened because of political reasons which were to stop the growing political support for this young Shia cleric.
Shias must bring this Grand Satan Sistani out in the public with force and ask him to call for peace between Sunnis and Shias.
Interesting news from Britain.
Army chief declares war on Blair: ‘We must quit Iraq soon’
US government is delaying the departure of thousands of troops from Iraq while speeding up the arrival of new troops to keep the level of troops higher. This is Bush regime effort to bring down the sectarian violence and the present troops are 142,000 in Iraq. Armed attacks on U.S. soldiers and Iraqis in Baghdad have increased by 43 percent since midsummer, despite an ongoing American-led campaign to secure individual neighborhoods, the top U.S. military spokesman in Iraq said Thursday.

“May Christian couples build a family that is open to life and capable of handling, united, the many, complex challenges of our times,” Benedict said as he delivered his traditional Sunday blessing from his window overlooking St. Peter’s Square.
“There is a need for families who won’t let themselves be swept away by modern cultural currents that are inspired by hedonism and relativism,” the pontiff added.”
What I understand is that Pope wants to go back 2000 years back social and cultural values. Why these religious nuts always against modernization?
China Japan are getting very uncomfortable with Kim Jong-Il nuclear weapon test. What is the problem? Why can’t North Korea had nuclear weapons for defence purpose?
Reports and early speculations is that Venezuela will win the UN Security Council seat for two years by defeating Guatemala US backed country. Washington also try to bring Chile into the race to stop Venezuela getting elected. This will be huge win for Hugo Chavez and we need someone like Hugo Chavez to standup against US in Security Council.

There is nothing new in Ayman Zawahiri tape which blasted Bush and Pope Benedict XVI. Actually get bored of these Christian religious fanatics vs Islamic religious fanatics. These both sides Bush Christian fundamentalists and Osama Bin Laden Islam fundamentalists are the same two sides of same coin. The victims of their fight are innocent people children women elderly hard economic hardship to survive for basic needs of life.
The following is what Zawahiri said in Video message.
As-Sahab, al-Qaeda’s multimedia production arm, issued today, Friday, September 29, 2006, a 17:51 minute video speech featuring Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri and titled: “Bush, the Pope of the Vatican, Darfur, and the Crusader Wars”. He appears in two scenes: one, subtitled in English, with an office-setup background with a lamp, flag bearing “No God, but Allah”, and a cannon; the other is without a background, and depicts Zawahiri dressed entirely in white, without subtitles.
To U.S. President George W. Bush, Zawahiri brands him a “deceitful charlation” and liar, and questions: “why don’t you tell them how many million citizens of America and it’s allies you intend to kill in search of the imaginary victory and in breathless pursuit of the mirage towards which you are driving your people’s sons in order to increase your profits?” He questions his motives for imitating the War in Iraq, ridiculing the false pretexts under which it was conducted. To this end he cites the purported links of Saddam Hussein to al-Qaeda, and the presence of weapons of mass destruction. He also addresses the capture of Khalid Shaikh Muhammad and questions that if it helped in the “war on terror” then “why are your troops retreating in secret from the south and east of Afghanistan?… Bush…be aware that the liberation of our captives is a debt on our shoulders which we must fulfill”. Other individuals who have been captured, such as Ramzi Yusef, Omar Abdul Rahman (the “Blind Sheikh”) and Abu al-Faraj al-Libi are also cited.
In the Arabic portion, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri discusses the issue of the Pope Benedict XVI’s slanderous comments to Islam and the Prophet Muhammad, by prefacing such attacks as beginning with the Satanic Verses of Salmon Rushdie, followed by desecration of the Qur’an at Guantanamo Bay, and banning of the hijab in French schools. He states that the current pope is reminiscent of Pope Urban II, who “provoked the people of Europe to fight the Muslims” in the Crusades. Zawahiri disregards Christinaity due to its “supersitions” and alleged irrationality, but avers that Muslims are not enemies of Jesus as Pope Urban II claimed. On the pope’s comments directly, Zawahiri adds: “if Benedict attacked us, we will respond to his insults with good things. We will call upon him, and all of the Christians to become Muslims who do not recognize the Trinity or the crucifixion, and say that Allah united with the human.”
Zawahiri called Bush what he acctually is and it is a known fact. Nothing New. Anybody interested in Iraq and Afghanistan wars read my posts on the subjects. There are plenty of them and my analysis is that US is not winning in Iraq neither winning in Afghanistan.
