The Pope between truth and diplomacy

Pope Francis is not what he seems to be

By Manlio Dinucci

Voltaire Network | Rome (Italy) | 6 December 2014

The Pope’s statements in Turkey shocked Syrian refugees. Indeed, the head of the Catholic Church thanked Ankara for its assistance without referring to the context. The flight of the Syrian population was in fact caused by the military support provided to the jihadists, including by Turkey. In addition, the situation of refugees may turn to disaster after international food assistance as halted on 1 December. The UN thereby intends to punish the refugees, who, since the Syrian presidential election in June, have proven that far from being opposed to the Syrian Arab Republic they are overwhelmingly in favor.

“Today it is said that many things can not be done because there is no money. And yet, the money for weapons can be found, the money to make war“: this statement of Pope Francis has been ignored by Italian and Western government circles who conceal the fact that global military spending (approximately 1 750 billion dollars annually according to SIPRI) is driven by the US and NATO (more than 1000 billion dollars annually, to which must be added other expenses of a military nature).

Also virtually ignored were the Pope’s remarks, which sound like an indirect criticism of the capitalist system: “A piecemeal World War III may have already begun“, spurred by political and economic problems interrelated with the efforts to save a system “where we have put money at the centre, the god of money.”

However, what Rome and other Western capitals gave special prominence to was the fact that, on arriving in Ankara, the Pope expressed his appreciation for “Turkey’s role in the Middle East region, by underlining in particular its humanitarian commitment for the reception of refugees fleeing conflict zones” [1]. The pope took a similar stance in Amman, when he thanked the Jordanian kingdom for the “generous welcome given to refugees from Iraq and other crisis areas, especially neighboring Syria, mired in conflict for too long“, and urged Jordan to “continue to engage in the search for the desired peace for the whole region” [2].

Such statements (most likely prompted by diplomatic considerations) which sing the praises of the role played by Turkey and Jordan in the Middle East region and their commitment to refugees, serve as a useful tool in the campaign conducted by Western governments and the media to befog reality. It is no coincidence that President Giorgio Napolitano, in his message on the eve of Pope Francis’ departure to Turkey, highlighted “the crucial role that Ankara is called upon to play in a region torn by strong tensions and bloody conflicts“.

Turkey and Jordan are, in fact, the outposts of the military operations conducted by the USA and NATO, whose real goal is not to do away with the Islamic State – which serves their agenda – but to destroy the Syrian state (after Yugoslavia and Libya), to reconquer Iraq (possibly by dismembering it so as to better control it) and ultimately to attack Iran.

According to investigations carried out by the New York Times and the Guardian, the CIA has set up in Turkey and Jordan various military centers for the training of Islamic groups (previously classified as terrorist by Washington) from Afghanistan, Libya and other countries, to be infiltrated in Syria; including groups that founded the EI in Syria, before launching the offensive against Iraq. The weapons are mainly channeled through Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Turkey – where NATO has over twenty air, naval and electronic surveillance bases – currently hosts LANDCOM, the central command of the land forces of NATO’s 28 member counties, thus also including the Turkish forces; it was set up in Smyrna, from where he directs operations in Syria and Iraq.

In Jordan – according to Associated Press [3] – the CIA runs a two-year training program for the rebel forces supported by the US that operate in conjunction with the Al Qaeda branch in Syria.

Leading to additional waves of refugees who will benefit from the “generous welcome” of Turkey and Jordan.

Turkish MP Dr. Mehmet Ali Ediboğlu] (Republican People’s Party – CHP) revealed that on 19 November 2014, a US ship had entered the port of Iskanderun carrying an illegal cargo of heavy weapons.

Riot police sealed off the port during the unloading of the cargo, which notably included missiles and heavy launchers. The material was then taken out by two convoys of twelve vehicles headed for the Al-Qaeda camp located in Osmaniye [1]

The Erdoğan government is actively supporting the armed groups in Syria without distinction, including the Islamic State. In this connection, the Turkish judicial authorities established that Erdoğan had secretly received Al-Qaeda’s banker at least a dozen times since the beginning of the war against Syria [2]. Since mid-October, the CHP accuses him of secretly supporting the Islamic Emirate [3].

AND A FURTHER SIDE NOTE REGARDING SYRIA….

Obama: Assad Protected Christians In Syria

Obama met with the delegation in the White House for 35 minutes, during which the patriarchs presented a paper in which they exposed the situation of Christians in the Middle East and the threats and challenges they are facing, due in part to the expansion of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group.

 President Assad reviews damage of ancient church in Maaloula

US President Barack Obama surprised his visitors, the delegation of Eastern Christians patriarchs, on Thursday when he told them that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “protected the Christians in Syria.”

Obama met with the delegation in the White House for 35 minutes, during which the patriarchs presented a paper in which they exposed the situation of Christians in the Middle East and the threats and challenges they are facing, due in part to the expansion of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group.

Sources told Al-Akhbar that the highlight of the meeting was when Obama said the following phrase: “We know that President Bashar al-Assad protected Christians in Syria.”

Obama then used the term “the Syrian government” instead of “regime,” which is usually used by the US to describe the government in Syria.

The confused attendees could not believe what they heard. However, one of the guests addressed Obama and said: “Then you should stop talking about a moderate Syrian opposition.”

Obama spoke about the planned US airstrikes in Syria, claiming that they will help “facilitate the (Syrian) political process.”

The US president then reiterated his country’s “support for the Lebanese army,” explaining that the “weaponry the US gave to the Lebanese army is the best response to ISIS in Lebanon.”

Meanwhile, Republican Texas senator Ted Cruz was booed off stage Wednesday night in Washington when he defended Israel at a gala sponsored by In Defense of Christians, a group whose objective is to focus public attention on the plight of persecuted Middle East Christian groups.

“Christians have no greater ally than Israel,” Cruz said, drawing a sharp response from the audience who started booing.

“Those who hate Israel hate America. Those who hate Jews hate Christians,” he continued. At that point, the booing got louder.

“If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you. Thank you and God bless you,” Cruz said before walking off stage.

Who really governs America or the UN?

Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Rai asked the attendees “not to to respond to Cruz and to focus on the conference and its objectives instead of individual statements.”

The Patriarch of Antioch and All the East and the spiritual leader of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, Gregory III Lahham, and Lebanon’s ambassador to Washington Antoine Shadid both withdrew from the dinner after Cruz attacked Hezbollah.

Lahham also refused to participate in a session about the situation of Christians in the Middle East because of its dubious objectives and problematic speakers.

Lahham found out that US state representative Chris Smith, who was scheduled to give a speech in the session, was planning on condemning Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, something that Lahham regarded as a departure from the conference’s objectives.

America the Grim Reaper of Christianity

Obama Admits his Betrayal of Christians in Syria

September 16, 2014

Christians in Syria pay for American-Israeli foreign policies01

A delegation of Christian leaders from Eastern Europe and the Middle East has visited the White House asking Obama to help support the survival of ancient Christian communities in the Mideast. They have urged him to reverse the Zio-dictated course of trying to destroy the government of the last great friend of Christians in the Mideast, President Assad of Syria.

An article in the Mint Press telling of Obama’s admission to the Christian leaders . . . pictured, Syrian president Basher Assad visiting a Christian church, destroyed by Obama-backed “rebels” in Syria.

The Christian leaders’ jaws dropped when Obama admitted that “Assad has protected the Christians in Syria.”

Obama essentially admitted that he and the Zio-controlled U.S. Government has been long supporting terrorists who are the worst enemies of Christians and moderate Muslims in Syria, and that he has been supporting the destruction of the leader who is the only person who is preventing a slaughter of untold numbers of Christians and moderate Muslims.

Of course, as I have been pointing in the last three years, it was clear from the start that the so-called “rebels” were dominated by Muslim extremists who the U.S. Government itself has branded as the most dangerous enemy of America: al Qaeda. Al-Nursra which was the dominant early power in the terrorism against Syria, was itself repeatedly identified as an al-Qaeda offshoot.

On the other hand, President Assad and the Syrian Government has protected the Christians and the vast majority of Muslims in Syria who also see the threat of radical Wahabbism coming out of Saudi Arabia. He has fought against the al Qaeda elements who have from the very beginning been the antagonists behind the so-called “civil war” in Syria. In fact, that “civil war” is, and has been from the beginning, nothing more than an invasion carried out by the most murderous and extreme Muslim elements imaginable.

The truth is that President Assad and the majority of Muslims support the Syrian Government, as exemplified by the top Muslim spiritual leader, the Grand Mufti.

So, why has Obama and the American Congress supported policies that have directly led to the rise of ISIS?

There is only one answer to that. It is extraordinarily simple.

Israel views the governments of Syria, Lebanon and Iran as its worst enemies.

Israel wants civil war and mayhem in Syria, just as the Zionist state encouraged the civil war in Lebanon.

America and other western European states are overwhelmingly Christian nations.

At the same time, we have been told that al Qaeda and radical Muslim groups are the worst enemies to Europeans and to mankind.

So why then, have our governments, by their actions, betrayed Christians and moderate Muslims?

Why have our governments opposed Syria, certainly one of the most advanced secular states in the entire Middle East?

Why have our governments promoted the conflict in Syria?

The openly-stated world-wide Zionist policy is that they seek to destroy their strategic enemies and the any friends of the Palestinian people through a divide and conquer strategy.

The reason why our governments have gone against every true interest of the American and European people—and the moderate Muslims and Christians of Syria—is  simply because Obama and the American Congress is the grip of Zionist traitors to the people of the United States—and to the true interests of human rights in the Middle East and around the world.

Why else would overwhelmingly Christian nations support the radical Muslim movements in Syria?

Why else would overwhelmingly Christian nations try to destroy the legitimate government of Syria? Especially when that government is the only thing which stands in the way of a genocide of Christians in Syria?

The Zio-controlled Congress of the United States has expressed its horror over the rise of ISIS terrorism in Syria and Iraq.

Yet it is the same policies pursued by Obama over the last 6 years that have led to the rise anti-Christian and Muslim extremist terrorism in Syria and Iraq.

Postscript by Dr. Duke: In November 2005, I addressed a large crowd of Syrians in Damascus which was later broadcast on Syrian TV on the very topic of Zionist agitation against Syria:

The same month, I was interviewed by the famous journalist Nadal Kabalan (who was once the NBC chief in London). This interview also appeared on nationwide TV in Syria and throughout the Mideast. Here is a transcript of the interview :

David Duke on Syrian tv

Interview with Syrian TV, November 21, 2005

Interviewer: “How do you read the ongoing U.S.-led escalation against Syria within the context of re-mapping the Middle East?”

David Duke: “Well, you must understand that the chief architects of the war were Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Pearl, Daniel Feith, Mr. Wurmser, Elliot Abrams, in the United States. They were the architects of this war. Mr. Pearl, as well as Mr. Wurmser and Feith, wrote a paper called ‘A Clean Break: Securing the Realm,’ a paper for Israel, for Benjamin Netanyahu. That paper said that the way to Damascus was through Baghdad. I believe that this is part of the ongoing Zionist effort, in their control of American foreign policy, to dominate the entire Middle East, and I believe, dominate the world. I think America is occupied in many ways the way the Golan Heights is occupied, the way the West Bank of Palestine is occupied.”

Interviewer: “Dr. Duke, what impact has the worsening situation of the occupying forces in Iraq and the daily shipment of body-bags of U.S. and allied soldiers to the U.S.A. and elsewhere, on Bush’s ability to plunge into another quagmire?”

Duke: “This war is a disaster for the United States, and I think that this has to put pause in some of the Zionist neo-cons about going into a new war. But the one wild card is that these neo-cons are crazy. They are insane people. They are Jewish fanatics, extremists, they are not normal people.”

“The people who are pushing Jewish supremacism, Zionism – they are absolute evil and they are crazy. All they know is more power, and so there is a real danger, I should say, for Syria, and a danger for Iran at this point.”

Interviewer: “How different is the Syria that you have [now] seen for the first time from that portrayed by U.S. and other Western media outlets?”

Duke: “I have defended Syria for a long time, so I was admiring Syria, I have admired your president very much. I hope at some point to be able to meet him and shake his hand. I think he is the greatest man in a very difficult period, and especially with what’s going on right now, in terms of Lebanon and its relations with Syria. But absolutely, even from my perspective, and it shows you how the Zionist media around the world controls and affects all of us. Even those of us who are aware of it – it’s subtly affecting.”

Interviewer: “How badly, can you tell our viewers, is the policy making process hijacked by those neo-cons?”

Duke: “Well, as a patriotic American – and I come here not as a Syrian partisan, but as an American patriot – it’s more shocking for me than it should be for you, because our sons and daughters are being killed in Iraq, are being wounded, innocent Iraqis have died, America is being hurt, and yet we have this policy which is only for Israel. This war is completely about Israel, and I would like to suggest to people in the Middle East… Sometimes I believe that the Zionists run a mystification on us. I find, with some of the leftists around the world who say this is a war for oil or this is an American imperialist war – No, this is a case of the Zionists using America to fight their war with our blood and our money.”

Interviewer: “Now, Dr. Duke, is there room for other than the Jewish extremist supremacists to actively engage in the changing of this pro-Zionist hegemony in the U.S., and how?”

Duke: “Well, first off, I think we have to understand that there are certainly some Jews who oppose the Zionists. There is no question about that. But it also must be understood that every major Jewish organization in the United States, including the Council of Presidents of Jewish Organizations, supports this Iraq war. The largest and most powerful lobby in the United States government is the Israel lobby. Now as an American citizen, I find it pretty strange that a foreign country would have the most powerful lobby in our government. So I think… My book is dedicated to Israel Shahak, who is in fact a Jewish person. I don’t consider myself antisemitic. But I am aware of the fact that I think more Jews need to stand up against the extremist dominance within their faith, within their nation. And until that happens, we cannot continue that road. But even more importantly, we – not only in America and Europe, but also in the Middle East – we must stand up and start telling the truth. If we don’t talk about some of the realities of this conflict… You know, Israel is really an apartheid state in many ways. And Israel is a state… that we wouldn’t tolerate actions of the American people. The New York Times is all against… It’s all for intermarriage in the United States of America. But The New York Times supports Israel, where a marriage of Jewish person and a non-Jew is illegal, where a Jew who is a member of the Cohanim, which is the elite element of the Jewish tradition – they cannot even marry a Jewish person, a person who is a full-fledged Jew, of the Jewish faith, who has one drop of [non-]Jewish blood. I mean, these people… Israel makes the Nazi state look very moderate in terms of its views.”

Interviewer: “How have you been treated by American media since you have been taken this stance?”

Duke: “Very bad. I would say that I’m treated about as bad as Saddam Hussein.”

“The number one problem, political, economic, and social, on this planet now is what we call Zionism and more specifically, Jewish supremacism. These radical, extremist Jewish elements such as Ariel Sharon, such as the neo-cons in Washington, believe this strange [idea] that they have a right to control the world – not just Palestine, not just Syria, Iraq, and Iran and the rest of the Middle East, but also London, New York, and Toronto. All over the world you see the same pattern of control over the media, the same pattern of influence.”

Interviewer: “You’ve mentioned London. London’s mayor, Ken Livingstone, whom I suppose that you know or have heard of…”

Duke: “Yeah, I admire him…”

Interviewer: “…has actually described Sharon as a war criminal, and said Sharon should be tried at The Hague.”

Duke: “Of course, if anyone should be tried for war crimes, it’s Ariel Sharon. The idea that the president of my country sits down and breaks bread and shares wine with Ariel Sharon, to me is amazing. I mean…”

Interviewer: “And he described him… Bush described him as a man of peace.”

Duke: “Exactly. I mean, Bush is totally… Bush is not a very smart man, and he is totally under the thumb of the Jewish supremacists. The president of Canada said it very well. He said that Bush is like a puppet. He knows what he has to say to get the support of the media, and political support. I think right now, they dangled him, they created… The Zionists created the lies of this war. In fact, Steven Cohen was the CIA person who manufactured the evidence… Even Israel’s CIA, even Israel’s Mossad actually put forward evidence to the United States about weapons of mass destruction. Israel itself basically [knows] that they lied, they know Bush knows that he lied, so now they say to Bush: OK, either you continue on with this program, with securing the realm, with this war, either you continue on with this or we will have you impeached.”

“It’s interesting. This is something the Arab community also is not aware of. The neo-cons, the people who founded this were actually Trotskyite communists originally. This is not well known…”

Interviewer: “Trotskyites?”

Duke: “Trotskyites. Yes, exactly. Russia has worked to free itself from the Jewish supremacist Bolshevists.”

Interviewer: “On last week’s talk show, a senior Anglican Syro-Lebanese clergyman cited on this show that there is a biblical background to what the world in general, and the Middle East in particular, is witnessing nowadays. What is your input on that? He was talking about the Old Testament and the process through which Jesus Christ was tried by the Jews and the way now they are treating [figures] like the Syrian leaders.”

Duke: “I may not be the most popular person for saying what I think needs to be said, but many people in the Middle East distinguish between Zionism and Judaism. As you know from reading my book, the evidence is overwhelming: Judaism at its core – not all Jews, but Judaism at its core – is a racist religion, a supremacist religion, and non-Jews are considered not even of human caliber. It’s not all of the Jews, but it is certainly something that is strong in it.”

SOME REFLECTIONS, QUESTIONS & THOUGHTS 

There are quite a number of disparate yet interrelated points that come to mind:

Firstly I would like to reiterate in response to some of our American readers who have sent emails complaining about our “anti-American stance” in the past in some of the articles we present. I simply cite that much of the information we provide regarding the imbecilic foreign policies that the USA has adopted and implemented within various parts of the world, (and we take exception to the fact that US congressmen keep the American public in the dark about these very policies), are neither in America’s national interests nor conducive to world peace or trade. And more specifically, has done more damage towards Christians in any given part of the world, and which many American Christians and civil libertarians are virtually if not completely ignorant about.

And it is here that I would emphasise to all our readers, particularly American and Western European, that the links between America, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Arab states, Turkey and even Israel with known jihadist groups is not a new phenomenon. They are the same groups who triggered off the Bosnian and Kosovo conflict which precipitated the subsequent genocides by all sides, they are the same groups which held Afghanistan hostage for decades of war and brought Pakistan into the extremist Islamist realm, they are the same groups that produced the conflicts in Sudan and Somalia, and now they are the same groups which have embroiled Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Syria and Iraq.

The support of the above mentioned countries towards the jihadist scum are responsible first and foremost for the bloodbath in Iraq and Syria. Furthermore the attempts to cover up their support for jihadists is one of the world’s worst kept secrets (much like efforts in the Ukraine also). Photographic evidence, archival evidence, eyewitness accounts as well as national security reports by non-involved governments cite quite clearly the link between this bizarre alliance of America, certain Western European nations, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf states with death cult jihadist groups such as ISIS, Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda and the myriad of parasitical scum that exists hiding behind the banner of Islam, Quran and the Sunna. And I would suggest that our Muslim readers, if they are truly serious Muslims of faith take note that these jihadist groups have one purpose only, which is to destroy and weaken Muslim nations and discredit Islam. The real threat to Islam is the existence of these groups within the world and specifically within the Islamic Ummah.

Again I will repeat my message specifically to Israeli and diasporan Jews, whose myriad of institutions, lobby groups and the Israeli authorities are doing things which are not in their own personal or strategic interests by supporting jihadist groups in places like Iraq, Syria, Libya and elsewhere. As a side note, I would like to remind our Jewish readers that Hamas was a group formed and sponsored by the Israeli state against Arafat’s Fatah political and resistance party….Needless to say the results speak openly with the current troubles in Gaza for both Israelis and Palestinians. (-And I note the irony, having lived in the Middle East myself and maintaining links with the region, of how Jews and Arabs are able to live in complete peace and harmony within the same residential complex or street in Tel Aviv or Damascus than in the occupied West Bank…I would suggest instead of Israel trying to create micro-conflicts within the region and posing a threat to itself in order to shift Israeli Jewish attention from domestic policies, to instead integrate the Palestinians into the Israeli state as citizens, who can access the same services and opportunities, own land outright and participate within national political life at all levels, thus ending the constant conflict that has plagued the region for over 60 years and counting, while establish firmly once and for all clear borders without the need for an unworkable two-state solution).

This of course brings me finally to highlight the bizarre role of Pope Francis who has initiated his own “Mid-East Peace plan” where he supposedly is supporting peace but is congratulating and backing up the very nations who are responsible for the current human tragedy that is unfolding. Of course this raises the question as to whether the Vatican, which is quite adept at politics, to use the current conflicts to expand its role and convert more indigenous Middle Eastern Christians as has been done in the past. We should note that the majority even currently, of the Middle East’s Christians are Eastern and Non-Chalcedonian Orthodox Christians and Assyrians, whose numbers have been reduced dramatically due to the imposition of Islamism, Zionism and the plethora of Roman Catholic and Protestant missionaries who keep descending upon the region in every generation bent on conversion and taking over the native churches. We are well aware of the current attempts by the Vatican to “bait” and “finance” the Assyrian Church to try and bring them  into the Roman Catholic communion now that the Assyrian Church is church in peril and suffering under the current strife created by the Western backed jihadists.

Naturally we should also note the rather comfortable and cosy relationship between the current Pope and the Vatican with Zionist groups and the Israeli authorities which should raise eyebrows as to why the Pope or the Vatican adopts its particular stance. It also raises questions for the native Middle Eastern Orthodox (Chalcedonian or Non Chalcedonians – IE Copts, Syriacs, Armenians etc) as to why the current Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople seems to endorse so openly the Pope’s Mid-East peace plan which clearly has an ulterior motive to expand and take over the region’s remaining Christian communities (those which haven’t fallen prey to Protestant/Evangelical missionaries)…

Many have questioned as to why this senior Orthodox figure has not been a more vocal advocate to garner support from other Orthodox Patriarchates and nations to provide the necessary support for the region’s native Christians, but is more concerned about continuing a dialogue with the Vatican that leads nowhere but possible submission to papal jurisdiction, and photo opportunities in Bethlehem… Of course some even asked as to why the current Ecumenical Patriarch who was more concerned about such photo opportunities did not make the effort to visit Taybeh which is the Holy Land’s last Christian enclave which has an overwhelmingly Orthodox Christian majority, but was visited instead by Pope Francis who ironically is a Pro-Zionist? Again why did Francis visit this predominately Orthodox Christian community that has a mere token Catholic minority?

But then again, why is Pope Francis drawing up a peace plan for a region that has a predominately Orthodox Christian majority within its Christian presence? Is it not Orthodox Christians who are the predominate victims, is it not Orthodox churches which are being destroyed, is it not Orthodox cemeteries that are being desecrated and so forth????

Surely it is the responsibility of Orthodox Christian leaders that should put forward a peace plan and be supported and financed by Roman Catholic and Protestant Christians as a sign of solidarity and true ecumenism without the demonic ulterior motives of proselytism and the current guise of the ecumenical movement??!!

Would not this do more to help build the first bridges towards Pan-Christian reconciliation and dialogue than the current efforts???

Yet what is actually occurring is best illustrated by the Vatican’s effort to purchase Orthodox churches that have been confiscated by the Turkish government and utilising those same churches which have been illegally, immorally and forcefully taken from their rightful owner, as new Roman Catholic and “Eastern rite Catholic” (Uniate) parishes and missions. The Eastern and Non Chalcedonian Orthodox and the Assyrians have not forgotten how Rome splintered the Maronites of Lebanon, the Melkites (“Greek Catholics”), the Chaldeans, the Coptic Catholics, the Assyrian Catholics, the Armenian Catholics, Ukrainian Catholics and many other groups from their original Orthodox Christian communions. Naturally these groups have been established because of the promise of financial, human and material support in return for their submission. And not surprisingly, the most vocal of Middle Eastern Christian leaders who are heard within the Western and global mass-media are invariably these Uniate traitors. Very rarely will you see or hear any Patriarch of either the Eastern Orthodox Non-Chalcedonian Orthodox or Assyrian Churches, is this just coincidence….I think not!

In any case many more things can be said, but it is best left for another article to discuss and for people to discuss and mull over and hopefully research and not take our assessment research and experience at face value.
