THE HOLY TWO-STATE DISASTER

holy-two-state-disasterPope Benedict XVI has finally left our shores. But before leaving, he made sure to strongly endorse what the enemies of the Jewish state are eager to establish, a two-state solution which looking from a logical perspective, means a final solution. Pope Benedict is playing a hypocritical game with what he calls “his big brothers.” For two thousands of years, the Catholic Church has denounced the Jews whom they have persecuted, murdered, and massacred because they refused to recognize the Nazarene as their savior. Prior to the miraculous creation of the State of Israel in 1948, the Catholic Church had predicted the theological doctrine that the Jews were punished by God and doomed to be scattered throughout the world without a place to rest for eternity.

Now that the Jews have returned to their eternal homeland, the Church, embarrassingly, has been forced to recognize this 20th century miracle by recognizing the State of Israel as the Jewish homeland. This unpredictable situation is indeed in contradiction to the New Testament’s prophecy. However, even though Pope Benedict in his recent speech in Israel proclaimed that the Jews are their big brothers, he stopped short to pronounce the message and mission that the Jewish people are entitled to proclaim to the world. In fact, for the Catholic Church, the Jews are no longer the chosen ones, and the Jewish Scriptures are obsolete and replaced by the New Testament. The Christians are now the New Israel and God’s Jewish messengers and witnesses are to be replaced by the Holy Church. This is called by the Church “Replacement Theology.” Moreover, the main tenet of the replacement theology is that the only role left for the Jews is to convert to Christianity.

This Christian replacement theology has been compounded by the fact that even though the Church had no choice but to recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people after 2,000 years of exile, and we have seen two different Popes’ visit Israel, Benedict made sure that this miraculous event was just a passing “incident” which will soon dissipate by his staunch pronouncement and support for a two-state solution. You may recall the support that the previous John Paul also bestowed to the arch-terrorist Arafat through several audiences while he was the PLO Chief.

The mindset behind this visit of Pope Benedict is that although Israel is temporarily a sovereign Jewish state in contradiction to the Church’s thousand years’ prediction to the contrary, that by endorsing a two-state solution, meaning carving an Arab-Islamist in the heart of Israel, that Israel will soon cease to exist giving way to the Church’s long-held predicament of Jewish continued suffering and wandering for eternity.

This essay is by no means a hateful message directed to the Catholic Church. What is written is sadly what has transpired recently in Israel through the Pope’s visit and declarations.  You would expect that due to the sad and horrific Jew hatred perpetrated by the Catholic Church in the past, that a Pope who represents over one billion adherents would abstain supporting a suicidal Islamic entity to be carved from the entrails of the State of Israel, which they know would mean the gradual slaughter and murder of Jews once again. In contrast, I also have to applaud and defend the millions of evangelical Christians who are staunch supporters of Israel as a Jewish State and opposed to a two-state solution.

Mark my words. The establishment of the State of Israel is no accident. It has been predicted in the Jewish scriptures for over three thousand years ago, including the ingathering of the Jewish tribes to Israel which is actually happening as we speak. Soon, in the forthcoming end of days, and in the words of Zechariah 8:23 “‘In those days ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”

  1. Hi Yipbop.,

    You wrote the following:

    Sorry, friend, you are wrong and you are painting an untrue picture of Pope Benedict XVI. It is as clear as daylight that you know very little or nothing of his theology and of the “modern” Catholic Church’s view of what you call “replacement theology”. Benedict has written long before he became pope that G-d’s covenant with Israel has NOT been superseded by what we Christians call the second covenant with the advent of Jesus Christ. Many Christians will differ from Ratzinger/Benedict and the Catholic Church on this one, but Benedict, Pope John Paul II, and the Second Vatican Council for that matter, (1962-65) hold that a covenant is a convenant. G-d does not turn his back on his promises.
    Oh yes, and neither are the Jewish scriptures “obsolete” for Christians. Goodness me, what do they teach you in Israeli schools?

    To quote you again:

    “You would expect that due to the sad and horrific Jew hatred perpetrated by the Catholic Church in the past, that a Pope who represents over one billion adherents would abstain supporting a suicidal Islamic entity to be carved from the entrails of the State of Israel, which they know would mean the gradual slaughter and murder of Jews once again.” Are you suggesting that Benedict XVI and 1 billion other Catholics want Islam/Palestinians/ whoever to wipe out the Jewish people in Israel??? You are absolutely wrong on this account too. What a terrible suggestion!

    And why on earth do Jews always mention only the Catholic Church as the big villains over the centuries when Germany, whose Nazis brought you the Shoah, has a majority PROTESTANTS and Luther, the hero of the Protestants ( including the Evangelicals) wrote the most awful anti-semitic screed one can think of.

    It has become a cliché and a Jewish knee jerk reaction to demonize the Catholics while the Protestants go absolutely scott free and have suddenly morphed into near-angels in Jewish eyes. A little nuance won’t be out of place, Yipbop. One sees way too much black/white statements and beliefs on Jewish blogs and in your media.

    Peace for you. And we are all supporting Israel and praying for a solution to the problems you have.

  2. Sorry if i have offended you in anyway. You could be right in many points, however, the replacement theology has always been strongest for many centuries within the Church in the Holy Land, according to St. Augustine’s verdict on Jewish destiny (people condemned to wandering, etc.). Although this replacement theology has been invalidated by the Popes, it still lingers within… And I wonder why it took so long for the Vatican to recognize Israel, not until 1994. In any event this recognition by Pope Paul II was rather political rather than spiritual. What this essay was protesting most strongly are the declarations of Pope Benedict with regard to splitting the land with terrorist entities such as Hamas and Fatah, unlike support to the contrary by the Evangelical Christians. I strongly believe that this partition would be suicidal for Israel’s security and well-being. In addition, control of Judea and Samaria by an Islamic state would also be detrimental to the Christians still living here, which by the way, their numbers are dwindling by the day due to Islamic harrassment and subserviancy. So, I did not appreciate Benedict’s support for a two-state solution.
    To sum up, thanks for your thoughts and let’s all pray for Peace in Jerusalem and well-being for all faiths.
