Head of Anglican Church, Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, born into a German Jewish family, was the keynote speaker at the Board of Deputies of British Jews President’s Dinner on May 5, 2015.

In his speech, Justin Welby urged his Christian sheep to protect Jewish communities from antisemitism around the world. He said when it comes to intolerance toward other faiths – Christians are as bad at anyone at this – in fact, if I dare to be competitive, I think we’re worse.

Welby apologized to the members of UK’s Jewish Lobby for the sins the Church and Christians committed against Jews during the last 2000 years.

Welby also conveyed his disgust over one of his Bishops (Stephen Sizer) for blaming Israel for 9/11. He assured his Jewish audience that such behavior will never be tolerated as long as he leads the Church.

Last year, Welby condemned Brits protesting in front London super markets which sell Israeli products.

The Anglican Church has long been occupied by the Zionist ideology. The strong stand by the Anglican Church of Canada against the so-called anti-Semitism dates back to 1934, when the General Synod of what was then known as the Church of England in Canada adopted a resolution condemning the persecution of Jews in Germany and recognizing Jewish contributions to the Western civilization. On April 15, 2015, Archdeacon Bruce Myers, re-affirmed the 1934 pledge.

It was in 1515 when Pope Leo X (Giovanni di Lorenzo de’ Medici), blessed the usury to please the bankers and eventual downfall of Catholic Church in England. How strong grip the Zionist Jews have over Catholic Church is horrifying as Shulem Deen, a yeshiva teacher in New York, describes in his book, All Who Go Do Not Return.

Pope Francis and several of his higher Church officials like Cardinal Timothy Dolan, are afraid to mention the name of their Lord or display the Cross during their ‘interfaith’ dialogues with rabbis, which they’re supposed to wear in public all the times. Read on this subject, here.

The hatred of Jews has been part of Europe’s Christian culture during the last 2000 years. It was brought to the Muslim world by West’s creation of the Zionist entity over Muslim-Arab land in 1948. Former UNHRC special envoy for the Palestinian Territories (2008-14), Dr. Richard Falk in a blog Post, said: It’s also relevant to observe that anti-Semitism was relatively rare in the Islamic world, which upheld freedom of worship by religious minorities although claiming a hegemonic role for Islam, especially in the era of Ottoman Caliphate. Until the problem generated by Zionism, anti-Semitism was not a serious issue in the Middle East, where Jews in most Arab countries were treated as an authentic religion and a respected minority. Throughout modern history Jews suffered from European anti-Semitism with Russia considered part of Europe.
