While skimming the headlines on Arutz Sheva last week I came across one that read: “The Vatican on Gaza: Israel is a Baby-Killer”. Upon reading the article, I was infuriated by Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi’s comments on Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense; in particular when he stated, “I think of the ‘massacre of the innocents’. Children are dying in Gaza, their mothers’ shouts is a perennial cry, a universal cry”.
First of all, this statement is a complete lie. The definition of “massacre” is: “an indiscriminate and brutal slaughter of people”. The total number of Palestinians killed throughout the operation was 177. Out of this 120 were militants. One can hardly define that as a massacre. In fact, it is impressive that in an area with a population of around 1.7 million, the IDF managed to kill so few given the intense bombing that occurred. He thinks of the massacre of the innocents, why is he upset? Does he not want competition? Is his intent to monopolize his church’s franchise on inflicting pain, torment, and suffering on the people of the world?
This statement is drenched in hypocrisy. This dirty bastard is calling the Israelis baby-killers? Where has he been for the last 12 years as Hamas has sent 12,000 missiles over the border into Israel’s southern settlements killing hundreds of men, women, and children? Where was he when the Fogel family was brutally murdered in their beds? Do the screams of Mr. and Mrs. Fogel and those of three of their children bother Ravasi?
His church from its inception has been responsible for the most heinous atrocities perpetrated upon mankind. It was an integral part of the Inquisition, the New World Genocide, the Holocaust, and countless other instances of mass murder. What New World people have prospered with the coming of the Holy Roman Church to their land? What about the Native American children who were snatched from their mothers arms and shut up in the residential schools where they were given blankets infected with smallpox; once infected, healthy children were put in with the sick ones in order to kill as many children as possible. What about the Native American women who are sterilized to prevent them from continuing their generations?
Is Ravasi tormented by the screams of these children? There are many little children who would rather have died than be used by him and his pedophile priest brethren for their sexual gratification.
For hundreds of years, Ravasi’s church has been slaughtering men, women, and children for no reason other than that they wouldn’t convert to the filthy, blood-soaked religion called Christianity. The only reason it is deciding to take the side of Hamas in this conflict, is because it set them up to fight against Israel in order to take the limelight off of the Catholic church and the atrocities it has done and is continuing to do. In the words of your own dirty book, “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
