morning, Saturday April 9, 2005, I read the Book of Matthew again. I wailed. We
could have known about these things and all the apostate masses could have
known, but the Judas Goats sold us out for thirty pieces of silver, and hid the
leaven of the Talmudic Pharisees from men, so they could not know the plotting
of the dragon and his sons of his shema-Gog. Now after years of reading and
researching the Hasidic Pharisees of the Beast Sanhedrin and their laws they
have made unto themselves against the Nobelman and His Only Begotten Son, who
they said "here let us slay him and rob him of his inheritance", and
make unto us a name to "REPLACE" him, I see so clearly what is upon
the earth, and I wail in great sorrow, not losing my Joy in the Kingdom of My
Lord unto his LORD, but for all who refuse him the IAMHE, and who are fallen to
the fables of the jews.

Shalom’s wife offers Prince Charles gift : Prince accepts
invitation to visit Israel, where he had been only once before to attend
Yitzhak Rabin’s funeral, by Doron Sheffer, YNet
Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom’s wife, Judy Nir Mozes Shalom, presented
Prince Charles with a gold talisman
from Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri during the
pope’s funeral at the Vatican Friday. She congratulated the prince on his
planned marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles; the prince, in turn, thanked her
for the gesture, saying he was moved by it. “I had planned to give him the
talisman in advance. I visited the rabbi’s home a day before the trip to
Rome with the intention of receiving a gold talisman from him and offering
it to the prince,” Mozes Shalom told Ynet.
“I told him I had given former
U.S. President Bill Clinton a similar talisman when he was in a state of
political turmoil and it helped him. I congratulated him and told
him I was
happy he is realizing his love after so many years.” She said she and her
husband extended the prince and his future wife an invitation to visit
Israel; the prince replied that he had visited the country only once before
to attend former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s funeral and that he would be
glad to visit again, Mozes Shalom said. “French President (Jacques) Chirac,
who saw me present the prince with the talisman, told me he was also very
touched by the gesture,” she said.

Pope's Will Points to Future Ties with
Fri Apr 8, 2005 10:23 AM BST
ROME (Reuters) - Pope John Paul's decision to mention a Jew in his will was a
sign (Shembolical) to his successor to continue and
improve his record of opening to Judaism, Rome's former Chief Rabbi Elio
Toaff has said.

Stand Firm and testify of the Only Living God, Jesus the Christ and his Father
Toaff, who welcomed the Pope on his ground-breaking visit to the city's
synagogue in 1986, said in interviews with Italian newspapers published on
Friday that he was surprised to be named along with two Roman Catholic prelates.
John Paul, the first pope to set foot in a synagogue, is seen as the pontiff
who most helped heal Jewish rifts with the Christian world after the Holocaust.
"It is a very important, moving fact that I did not expect," Toaff
told the daily La Repubblica. "It is a significant
and profound gesture for Jews. But I think it is also an indication to
the Catholic world."
Toaff said: "Pope Wojtyla wanted to indicate a
road aimed at further destroying all the obstacles that have divided Jews and
Christians through the centuries."
Noahide Laws unto the Dragon
Toaff, who attended the Pope's funeral on Friday, said he hoped
the next pope would uphold John Paul II's legacy and "do even better ...
But it is unlikely that there will be someone else like him. Even if we are
optimistic, I see many difficulties in finding a successor of his stature."
John the Baptist RE the "son of a carpenter"
Giovanni Battista RE ? a king?
The two other people mentioned in the will released on Thursday were the
Pope's mentor, the late Polish Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski, and his long-time
personal secretary Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz.
Pope John Paul has been praised by Jewish leaders for his repeated
condemnation of anti-Semitism and apologies for the historical mistreatment of
Jews, whom he called "dearly beloved elder brothers."

John Paul established full diplomatic relations with Israel in 1993, and in
2000 visited Israel's memorial to the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. He
also prayed at Jerusalem's Western Wall for forgiveness for historical Christian
mistreatment of Jews.
Christ Believers have never ever never slain any man,
but they who do are of their father the murderer since the beginning
"The request for forgiveness was one of the greatest gestures of Pope
John Paul," Toaff said.
Remembering his first meeting with the Pope, Toaff told Corriere della Sera,
another Italian newspaper:
"He was ill, I went to see him. He was sleeping. I sent him my recovery
and birthday wishes. The secretary came back with his eyes wide open. He had
told him I should see him immediately. As soon as he saw me, he threw his arms

Police brace for Temple Mount violence
Bracing for possible violence, Jerusalem police will be
on the highest state of alert Sunday on the Temple Mount, barring both a
group of Jewish ultra-nationalists and Arab men from entering the
bitterly contested holy site due to fear that an altercation between the two
sides at the compound will send the country spiraling into violence.
Over 3,000 police officers will be patrolling the Old City of Jerusalem on
Sunday to prevent any attempts of forced entry to the mount.
Concern over the outbreak of violence on the Temple Mount was further fueled
Saturday after Israeli troops killed three Palestinian
teens in Gaza after they entered an unauthorized border area, and
Palestinian terror groups responded by firing more than two dozen mortar shells
at Israeli settlements and army outposts in the Gaza Strip.
For the past month, police have been trying to allay mounting tensions at the
Temple Mount - a flash-point and epicenter of violence in the past - after the
ultra-nationalist Jewish group 'Revava' announced plans to hold a rally at
Judaism's holiest site
After meeting with Palestinian officials who administer the compound,
Jerusalem police chief Ilan Franco said that he was barring the massive Jewish
pilgrimage to the Temple Mount by a group of ultra-nationalists opposed to the
planned withdrawal from the Gaza Strip following multiple intelligence warnings
that such an event could prompt Palestinian violence at the Jerusalem holy site.
Too late the Beast Sanhedrin has Ruled against Arik
Sheinerman's secular zion
Then, after organizers of the event said that they were
going ahead with the rally anyway - setting the
stage for a major show-down with police outside the Jerusalem site on Sunday
- and the Islamic Movement announced that it was
mobilizing thousands of Arabs from around the country to take part in a mass
pilgrimage to the site to counter the planned Jewish demonstration,
police said Wednesday that they were completely closing off the site to all
non-Muslims on Sunday.
"Under no circumstances will we allow provocations. They will not enter
the Temple Mount," Internal Security Minister Gideon Ezra reiterated over
Despite subsequent conciliatory remarks by the Islamic Movement, continued
concern over possible confrontation at the site led police to bar Muslim men
under the age of 40 from entering the compound on Friday, restrictions which
will be in force Sunday as well, police said.

MK Yatom Fears 'Religious Revolution'
Apr 10, '05 / 1 Nisan 5765
Danny Yatom, a Labor party Knesset member and former head of the Mossad,
expressed fears that the growing number of senior
religious army officers could result in a military coup.
Several Knesset members and a leading pre-military educator denounced Yatom's
statements, which he made Friday during a discussion in Tel Aviv about a recent
book which deals with a fictional coup. Religious
soldiers have been more prominent in the IDF in recent years and several are
"Soldiers wearing 'kippot' (skullcaps) are excellent
soldiers, but their rabbis have a great influence over them," Yatom said. "They
are prepared to obey a rabbi before they obey IDF officers. A few years ago, I
thought this scenario was a hallucination, but since then we have seen the
de-legitimization of the government and Knesset and Rabbis inciting and
encourage rebellion and refusal - many soldiers consider the
orders of rabbis stronger than the orders of officers. It
is impossible to consider a coup d'etat as imaginary.
Yatom warned that senior military officers "can take their units and stage
About one-third of the soldiers in Army elite units and in officers courses are
religious, according to Rabbi Moshe Hagar, a reserve Army colonel and head of
the association of 24 pre-military academies ("mechinot").
Dismissing any possibility of a coup d'etat, Hagar said Yatom's comments were a
"personal injury" to the army and to his own standings as a reserve
officer. He emphasized that the pre-military academies and several leading
rabbis have opposed the idea of refusing to follow army orders.
"I am sorry that MK Danny Yatom does not deal with the main issue,"
Hagar added. "He is part of a government that acts in an undemocratic way
and tries to impose on the IDF actions that are against the conscience of the
Yoel Hasun, head of the Young Likud, responded with charges that Yatom's
comments were incitement and called on the Knesset Ethics Committee to
investigate. National Union MK Uri Ariel said Yatom spoke with unjustifiable
hate against religious soldiers "whose loyalty to the army and government

2005...the false redemption and the "Revealing" of Moshaich ben satan"
This Month's for You, Bud
by Rabbi S. Weiss
Apr 08, '05 / 28 Adar 5765
"This month shall be for you the head of the
months." So we are commanded to honor Nissan - when history began anew for
us with our liberation - as the first month in the calendar. But what does
"for you" mean?
We'll get there. But first, let's examine one of the thorniest problems in the Pesach
story: the hardening of Pharaoh's heart. If Pharaoh did not have free will to
make an independent decision, if he was forced to obstinately keep the Jews in
slavery, then why should he be punished?
There are two classic responses to this issue.
Resh Lakish says that Pharaoh had numerous opportunities to repent, but rejected
them all. So, at some point, HaShem said, 'You were stubborn and hardened
your heart; now you must pay for your sin.' Note that after each of the first
five plagues, the text says Pharaoh hardened his own heart or "Pharaoh's
heart hardened." Only after the fifth plague does the Torah say that HaShem
was the one who hardened Pharaoh's heart.
Sforno has another, very different approach. Had G-d not hardened Pharaoh's
heart, he surely would have let the Jews go. Not from a sense of remorse or
recognition of HaShem, but because of financial, societal or physical
pressure. That is not teshuva! So, G-d hardened his heart to make him
impervious to extraneous considerations and do what he felt he should do,
thus keeping open for him the gates of repentance. The hardening of his heart
thus actually becomes a vehicle to ensure free will, not prevent it.
The Sforno is telling us that G-d allows and assists us to go in the direction
we truly want to go.
That is the operative idea of "this month is for you...." Whatever
path we choose to take on Pesach - indeed, in all of Nissan - HaShem
will give us the strength and skill to get there. We can do anything, even
miracles, as Nissan (nes) implies; we just have to want it, to seek it,
to pursue it. No goal is out of reach, just as the freedom from slavery - an
impossible goal never before achieved under Pharaoh's rule - became a reality in
That is why Geulah is destined to occur in Nissan, a time when all the
doors, all the possibilities, are open before us. When we open the door for
Eliyahu, we demonstrate that concept literally and figuratively:
opening doors; Moshiach may just walk right on in!

Nisan, the first day
of the month of redemption, occurs on the same day of the week as the first day
of Passover, two weeks later. It is the day when the Jews in Egypt were informed
of the imminent departure and redemption from Egypt (on the 15th of the month),
and thereupon received the mitzvot of the Passover Sacrifice, the matza and
maror, and all other directives and details pertaining to the redemption from

Worldwide Prayer Rallies on Erev Rosh
by Betzalel Kahn
In light of the trying situation in Eretz
Hakodesh and the Diaspora, maranan verabonon, the gedolei haTorah
vehaChassidus have issued a call to Jews everywhere to assemble for prayer
rallies to be held in Jewish communities throughout the world, and to entreat
the Master of all for mercy. The rallies are scheduled for Thursday the 27th of
Adar, Yom Kippur Koton of chodesh
Nisan, held early because
is on Sunday.
Hashem will not reject the prayers of the many, and will
accept our prayers and hearken to our outcries with compassion and grace. He
will issue a spirit of purity from Above, in order to return us to Ovinu
shebaShomayim. Fathers will return to their sons and sons to their fathers.
Hashem will heed us, and we will not be lost. We will merit the coming of Moshiach
tzidkeinu speedily, out of great mercy and kindness."
WILL MOSHIACH BEN SATAN THAT SON OF
PERDITION BE "REVEALED"?
Why Purim is Greater than Yom Kippur
Jewishness must begin with our home, with our Jewish friends and with the
synagogue. But it must continue in our businesses, among our non-Jewish friends
and in the world. The real receiving of the Torah was in
the days of Mordechai and Esther. So real - that only it will be
remembered when Moshiach
comes. So real - that Purim is even greater than Yom

Control of the Temple Mount Means Control of
This sentence by Uri Zvi Greenberg has never been shown to be more correct than
now. In the face of Arabs threats the Israeli Police rushes to close the Temple
Mount to visits by Jews, and we can see how loss of control over the Temple
Mount and the danger of loss of control of other parts of the homeland are
intertwined. We shall all join the numerous faithful Jews who next Sunday, Rosh
Hodesh Nisan, will come
to the foot of the Mount with a demand to restore Israeli sovereignty over the
holy place and permit Jews to pray on the Mount.
What's the plan?
We've called for a massive ascent of Jews to the Temple Mount on Rosh
5765 (Sunday April
10, 2005) and made great efforts to coordinate this event with the Israeli
authorities. We've negotiated with the police to allow groups of Jews to ascend
the Temple Mount during the whole day, not just during the few hours it is
normally open to Jews.
According to the plan each group is to be led
by Rabbis and specially trained guides who are knowledgeable about all
halachic matters involving Jewish visits to the Temple Mount. Unfortunately, at
this point the police have informed us that they intend on preventing the ascent
of thousands of Jews on this day. We call upon everyone to come out between 9:30
and 10:30 a.m. to the foot of the Temple Mount near the Mughrabim Gate (the
Rambam Gate) to make our demand for freedom of religion known.
In contrast to the mistaken information that's been published in the media, we
have no intent of being dragged into any violent confrontation with the police,
nor to cause any disquiet. I personally ask everyone who comes out to make a
true effort to avoid any friction with the authorities. We're secure in our
belief that the act of a mass gathering demanding the Temple
Mount be opened to Jewish worship will influence the decision makers and bring
us closer to restoring our basic right of access to our most holy place.
At 1 p.m. there will be a gathering in the Jewish Quarter where leaders of the
Revava movement and the Temple Mount Rabbis will draw out the next stages of
action in the plan to open the Temple Mount to Jewish worship

(IsraelNN.com) The Land of Israel Committee has filed with Israel Police
for a permit to hold the Reviva rally of tens of thousand of people on the
Temple Mount this coming Sunday, Rosh
corresponding with 10 April.
Organizers stress the event will be a religious, not political one, and
it will be conducted in the proper decorum demanded by the holiness of the
Temple Mount. Police have been informed there will be absolutely no
provocation, but Arab terror groups have called the scheduling of the rally
a provocation in and of itself.
Police have already indicated the permit will be denied and a large
deployment of troops will be on hand to prevent Jews from making their way

Cardinals Say Pope Must Be Communicator
April 9 - The Roman Catholic Cardinals will take an oath
of secrecy when they enter the conclave to elect the next pope, but in
the week since John Paul II's death many have been publicly dropping hints about
what kind of man the church now needs.
The enormous outpouring of affection for John Paul has clearly had an impact
on their thinking.
Many of the prelates said in noticeably similar language that while the next
pope may have a very different style than John Paul, he must above all be an
effective communicator of the faith who can sustain the grass-roots enthusiasm,
especially among youth, that John Paul generated.
With all but 3 of the 117 cardinal electors selected by John Paul, it is
highly unlikely that the new pope will depart from his conservatism on
contraception, divorce, women as priests or the range of what the church
considers to be "sanctity of life" issues, from stem cell research to
abortion and euthanasia.
Before the pope's death, many cardinals and commentators said a decisive
factor could be geography - whether the next pope should come from Europe, where
the church is shrinking, or from Latin America, Africa or parts of Asia, where
the church is experiencing rapid growth.
But since the pope's death, the cardinals have said they are looking for
someone who can project universal appeal with a
personal humility and pastoral presence that embodies the message of the gospel,
as they say John Paul did. It is not, many cardinals said in interviews, that
they must choose a great orator.
"He doesn't have to be John Paul II and have the same
fingerprints," said Cardinal J. Francis Stafford, formerly the archbishop
of Denver and now a high-ranking Vatican official. "He just has to be his
authentic self," Cardinal Stafford added. "And if they see he's
authentic, that he's honest and they will see that that's all they need. He will
lead them to Christ, and that's all that's necessary."
Moshiach false Christ
Cardinal Stafford and others spoke before Saturday, when the Vatican
spokesman, Joaquín Navarro-Valls, announced that the cardinals had decided
unanimously at their daily meeting "to avoid interviews and contact with
the media," whose members were "invited to abstain" from seeking
"The cardinals have begun a period of more intense silence and prayer in
the face of the conclave," he said. The conclave
begins on April 18. Two cardinals cannot attend for health reasons,
bringing the total count of electors to 115, the Vatican said Saturday.
The men who will elect one of their own to be the leader of a church of more
than a billion people are the most ethnically and geographically diverse college
of cardinals in history, thanks to the effort by John Paul to increase the
number of non-Italians. Twenty-one come from Latin America, one of the world's
fastest-growing Catholic zones, giving it one more than the traditional power,
Italy. The United States and Canada have 14; Africa and Asia each has 11;
Europe, where in some countries the church is hemorrhaging the faithful, has 58.
The youngest is 52 years old; the oldest turns 80 in June.
They fall into two groups: those who work in the Vatican curia, carrying out
the business of the church, and those who serve as archbishops, tending to
Catholics on the local level.
Aside from age and geography, they also have different priorities for the
next pope to emphasize as he carries out his public ministry.
One is the need to continue forging closer ties with
other religions and other Christian denominations.

Many cardinals emphasized last week the need for increased dialogue with
Muslim leaders. "You don't want a clash of religions," said Cardinal
Avery Dulles, a theology professor at Fordham University and a nonvoter. He
identified ecumenism as one of two priorities for the next
pope along with pushing forward with John Paul's effort to evangelize
in the West.
Several cardinals have indicated a strong desire for someone with the
pastoral qualities of cardinals who are also archbishops.
"I would hope his focus would be on local communities of faith,"
Cardinal Edward M. Egan of New York said. "The parish is the central unit
that must be served."
More than at any past conclave - the closed door meeting in the Sistine
Chapel where the cardinals will vote - this one has an unusually large number of
"papabili," the Italian word to describe those with pope potential.
The cardinals are loath to mention names, but from the comments of many, the
field seems to be wide open.
But by describing the qualities they desire, educated guesses can be made
about serious contenders, always with the often-repeated caveat about conclaves,
"go in a pope, come out a cardinal."
One man who fits many of the current criteria is Cardinal Dionigi Tettamanzi,
71, the archbishop of Milan. He reminds many Italian Catholics of an earlier
much-beloved pope, John XXIII, with his plump appearance and his warmth. He is a
son of the working class, and spoke in support of antiglobalization protesters
in 2001 at the meeting of major industrialized nations in Genoa, where he told
the thousands of demonstrators, "One African child sick with AIDS counts
more than the entire universe."
He is also a conservative
intellectual, close to Opus Dei, who is said to have helped John Paul
write several key encyclicals. He has published a book on bioethics, an
expertise that would be crucial for the next pope.
Another whose name is often mentioned is Claudio Hummes, the archbishop of São
Paulo who speaks five languages and looks much younger than his 70 years. Brazil
has the largest number of Catholics of any country, but the church is facing a
serious challenge from the Protestant evangelical movement. As a bishop early
on, he opposed Brazil's military government and backed striking workers. Since
then, he has grown more conservative and once chastised a priest for suggesting
that condoms should be used to fight AIDS.
Even before the conclave, candidacies will be pushed by what are known among
Vatican watchers as Grand Electors - influential cardinals who can sway votes or
at the least are looked to for guidance. They tend to be prominent members of
Vatican congregations where they meet other cardinals, or frequent travelers, or
men who by sheer force of intellect and personality are given weight. Some of
them are even papabili themselves.
The issues on the minds of Catholics who would like to see their church
liberalize its position on contraception, divorce or women priests are not under
discussion, the cardinals said in interviews. This does not preclude the
possibility that the next pope could eventually lead the church to adopt some
new interpretation on church traditions, but where the issue is considered a
matter of doctrine it is highly unlikely to change.
For instance, the church's ban on artificial contraception was reinforced by
Pope Paul VI in his encyclical Humanae Vitae.
A reporter asked Cardinal Francis George of Chicago in a news conference last
week whether the church would consider approving the use of condoms to prevent
AIDS in places like Africa.
"Your solution is to exterminate the poor?" he said, referring to
the births that contraception would prevent. "The doctrine of the church
isn't going to change, and so you work with it as best as you can."
Despite the growing consensus that they need a communicator, there is always
a chance that other factors will significantly sway the cardinals' choice.
They may opt for an older interim figure, someone who would help the church
pause for breath in the aftermath of one of history's longest and most eventful
papacies. A candidate for that role would be Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who
worked closely with John Paul for 24 years as the chief overseer of church
theology and is deeply respected for his learning and decisiveness. He is also
the dean of the cardinals, effectively their chairman and guiding force, and is
one of only three cardinal electors who have ever attended a conclave.
But age may hurt. Cardinal Ratzinger turns 78 on Saturday. "This is a
very strong personality, of great intelligence, faith and openness,"
Cardinal Zenon Grocholewski told Reuters. "The problem is his advanced
Perhaps a young, vigorous man would be attractive, after so many years of the
world seeing an increasingly ailing John Paul.
The Viennese archbishop, Christoph Schönborn, 60, fits that bill. He is the
fourth youngest of the cardinals, widely respected for being learned and
The scion of an aristocratic family with numerous clerical members over the
centuries, Cardinal Schönborn is well-thought of for how he handled the sex
scandals that shamed his predecessor. But some fault him for showing coldness in
handling his staff and for reacting poorly to a dispute with another Austrian
bishop. He belongs to the Dominican religious order.
Then there is region: should he come from a developing country? Perhaps, this
line of reasoning goes, the timing would be perfect for a pope to address
poverty, just as the cold war demanded a Karol Wojtyla.
"I believe the Holy Spirit will give us the pope we need at this time,
like he did 26 years ago, when John Paul II was elected," Cardinal Theodore
McCarrick of Washington said.
Francis Arinze, 72, of Nigeria, who is also heavily involved in relations
with Muslims, is a perennial favorite.
Cardinal Arinze has been a Vatican official for 20 years, and is head of the
department regulating worship and the sacramental practice. He converted to
Catholicism at the age of 9. While his spiritual credentials are strong, critics
have said he lacks imagination. His language can be strong. A year ago he said
that a Roman Catholic politician who supports abortion "is not fit" to
receive communion, and he has criticized homosexuality as having
"mocked" the family.
Perhaps none of this matters, some cardinals suggested, returning to the
If they ever needed proof of the power of a single figure to inspire
Catholics, particularly young ones, they had it last week. The image of the
crowds that came to mourn John Paul - an estimated 1.4 million filed by the
pope's body among the roughly three million who descended on Rome - is prompting
the cardinals to wonder how to sustain and deepen that enthusiasm and even
translate it into a reinvigorated church.
"He has to be able to communicate with rich, young people in countries
like the United States and France," said Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of
France. "Then he needs to be able to relate to the poor when he goes to
places like Brazil or Morocco or Burkina Faso. He has to be a person who can
explain the Gospels to every type of audience.
"He has to really love his flock; he has to understand their sufferings,
their difficulties," he said.
"John Paul II was that kind of pope."
