Jews against Cardinal Rodriguez for Pope

Jewish groups have started their smearing campaign against one of the leading contenders, Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga (born 1942) of Honduras as successor to the retiring Pope Benedict XVI. The first shot was fired by no other than the Jewish academic, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, the welknown hate-mongering and truth-twisting anti-Arab, pro-Israel crusader.

Dershowitz has called Cardinal Rodriguez, “an out and out antisemite”.

The Cardinal has blamed the Jews for the scandal surrounding the sexual misconduct of priests toward young parishioners! He has argued that Jews got even with the Catholic Church for its anti-Israel position by arranging for the media – which they, of course, control, he said – to give disproportionate attention to the Vatican sex scandal. He then compared the Jewish controlled media with Hitler, because they are, protagonists of what I don’t hesitate to define as a persecution against the Church,” wrote Dershowitz.

Dershowitz’s above rant is based on Rodriguez’s 2002 interview with the Italian-Catholic publication “30 Giorni,” – in which he said that Jewish-controlled media was exploiting church sex scandals to divert public attention away from Israeli brutality against Palestinians.

On May 6, 2009, Dershowitz, at the Jewish FrontPage Magazine, blasted Father Angelo Idi, Bishop Richard Williamson, Cardinal Joseph Glemp and Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Meridiaga.

Anti-Semitism in the Catholic clergy transcends ideological lines. Bishop Williamson and Father Idi are fascists of the hard right. Cardinal Rodriguez is a leftist “liberation” theologist. Cardinal Glemp is just an old fashioned Polish anti-Semite who follows in the footsteps of his predecessors who were also Primates of the Polish Catholic Church,” wrote Dershowitz.

Interestingly, ADL website has claimed that Cardinal Rodriguez apologized for his 2002 comments during a conversation with its director Abraham Foxman.

Dershowitz has claimed that if Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga succeed Pope Benedict XVI, “all of Pope John Paul II’s (born to a Polish Jewish mother) good work in building bridges between the Catholic Church and the Jews would be destroyed. This should not be allowed to happen. The campaign against this bigot must begin now“.

Dershowitz’s beef with Cardinal Rodriguez is that he is against Capitalism and abortion – both establishments being controlled by the Jewish elites. However, Cardinal Rodriguez do has something common with Dershowitz. Both hate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. In 2007, the former president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, demanded an apology from Chavez for calling Cardinal Rodriguez “a parrot and an imperialist clown”. However, later Zelaya joined Chavez’s Latin American economic cartel – a move which brought his downfall via a US-sponsored military coup.

  1. Ya know,

    there was a day (long, long ago) when the Holy Roman Catholic Church was THE bulwark AGAINST the jew. The Church (500 years ago now) recognized usury was ilicit (money cannot breed) and actively prevented the jew from plundering.

    Now the Church has been so corrupted by the jews within it (those who converted or who’s family converted generations ago infiltrated and became priests) that jews OUTSIDE the Church can actually get away with telling the Church who should or should not be elected Pope!

    Absolutely amazing that we’ve stooped so low. Can one imagine the Church saying: ‘So and so should not become the chief rabbi of _____ because he’s an anti-Catholic bigot.’ ?? What an outrage that would cause!

    Thank you for posting this, Rehmat.

    Good article Rehmat. I just have one small complaint: your quote from dershitz has an editorial remark of your included within it, set off by parenthesis, but in the same italicized print. I was under the misapprehension that dershitz actually said that JPII was “(born to a Polish Jewish mother)”, but linking to the article I saw that this was an editorial comment of yours. I don’t doubt that JPII’s mother, and perhaps grandmother and great-grandmother were Jews, but I think the proper editorial style would have set those comments off differently. Instead of round parenthesis, (), I would use square brackets, []. Also I would not have used italics for the comment, as the quotation was italicized. Another good signpost is to use “-Ed” by the editors remarks.

    These are just remarks about a point of style, but otherwise this is another excellent article.
