"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Francis expands his definition of "anti-semitism"

Francis expands his definition of "anti-semitism" 

By: CallMeJorge 

From the Times of Israel article, ‘Not recognizing Israel as Jewish is anti-Semitic, Pope says’

"The comments were sent by the Pope in writing to Cymerman along with Argentine Rabbi Abraham Skorka, one of Francis’s close interfaith colleagues, after the duo approached him following his meeting with Abbas, Channel 2 reported."
And here is Francis' quote,
“Anyone who does not recognize the Jewish people and the State of Israel — and their right to exist — is guilty of anti-Semitism.” 

Henrique Cymerman mentioned above with Abraham Skorka as one of the two recipients of Francis' email even went to twitter where he sent three tweets out, in Hebrew, in English, and in Spanish, to let the world know Francis said the above.


 Recall what Francis said in an interview with Elisabetta Piqué on 7 December 2014,

"I’m constantly making statements, giving homilies. That’s magisterium. That’s what I think, not what the media say that I think. Check it out; it’s very clear. "

...and the Concise Catholic Dictionary (1943) defines Magisterium as, 

 This isn't the first time Francis has condemned anti-semitism but to our knowledge at Call Me Jorge..., it is the first time he has equated anti-Zionism to anti-semitism.

Welcome to the Jew World Order! 

Pope, Saint Pius X:
"We are unable to favor this (Zionist) movement. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem but we could never sanction it. The ground of Jerusalem, if it were not always sacred, has been sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of the Church, I cannot answer you otherwise.  The Jews have not recognized Our Lord; therefore we cannot recognize the Jewish people."
