Now Comes the Great Divide

1. Traditional Catholic SSPX Bishop Fellay Declares “Jews are our elder brothers in the old Covenant”

2. Michael Hoffman’s reply:
Now Comes the Great Divide

Superior General of the SSPX, Bishop Fellay Proclaims "The Jews are 'our elder brothers' in the old Covenant"
http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2009/02/fellay-jews-are.html

Fellay: "The Jews are 'our elder brothers'."
"Antisemitism has no place in our ranks."

Strong words of the Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X (FSSPX / SSPX), Bishop Bernard Fellay, against any suspicion of Antisemitism.

1. First, in a declaration made yesterday to Famille Chrétienne, the French Catholic weekly, as reported by La Croix this Sunday:

Bishop Bernard Fellay welcomed Famille Chrétienne [French Catholic weekly] on January 31, in his General House of Menzingen, Switzerland. He responded in particular to the accusations of Antisemitism cast at the Fraternity of Saint Pius X.

"We evidently condemn every act of murder of the innocent. It is a crime that cries to heaven! Even more so when it is related to a people. We reject every accusation of Antisemitism. Completely and absolutely. We reject every form of approval of what happened under Hitler. This is something abominable. Christianity places Charity at a supreme level. Saint Paul, speaking of the Jews, proclaims, 'I wished myself to be an anathema [from Christ], for my brethren!" (Rom. 9, 3). The Jews are "our elder brothers" in the sense that we have something in common, that is, the old Covenant. It is true that the acknowledgment of the coming of the Messiah separates us.

"It is very interesting to notice that the Church did not await for the Council to prescribe courses of action regarding the Jews. Since the 30s, even during the war, several texts of Rome provide a very just position: the abominations of the Hitlerist regime must be condemned! 'Spiritually, we are all Semites', Pope Pius XI had said. It is a truth which comes from Sacred Scripture itself, 'we are sons of Abraham,' Saint Paul also affirms."

2. Also by an e-mail message sent this Sunday to the Rev. Dr. Alcuin Reid (forwarded to several blogs):

Statement by Dr Alcuin Reid:

On Friday BBC Radio asked me to discuss recent events concerning the SSPX on 'The Sunday Program' this morning. Following that request I asked the SSPX for comment on the issues to be discussed. Unfortunately Bishop Fellay's reply reached me only after the program aired. His reply, written for publication, states:

"The position of Bishop Williamson is clearly not the position of our Society. Antisemitism has no place in our ranks. We follow fully God's commandments on justice and charity and the constant teaching of the Church. Antisemitism has been condemned by the Church. So do we condemn it. I fully agree with Fr Schmidberger's statement about Bishop Williamson's words. (www.fsspx.info)"

God bless you

Now Comes the Great Divide

By Michael Hoffman | Aug. 30, 2011

Now comes the Great Divide in the Roman Catholic Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), not between Bishop Richard Williamson and Bishop Bernard Fellay, but between the SSPX founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and Fellay.

This “antisemitism” canard is used as a Pavlovian instrument of auto-suppression ­ to taint any critical study of Judaism. The SSPX rejects antisemitism, Bishop Fellay says. Fine! But what does that have to do with the issues at hand? Is it “antisemitic” to ask if Judaic persons were gassed to death in Auschwitz? Are these gassing allegations now holy Catholic writ, a new gospel? Where is the forensic documentation that St. Edith Stein was “gassed” in Auschwitz-Birkenau? How is it that one hates “semites,” if one dares to ask questions about secular history?

To what extent has the religion of Judaism for gentiles, that some of us refer to as Holocaustianity, supplanted the religion of Jews and gentiles known as Christianity? To what extent is Holocaustianity used to occlude the history of Judeo-Bolshevism’s mass murder of millions of Christians in Russia and Eastern Europe? These distinctions do not concern Bishop Fellay. He defends against the charge of “antisemitism” with the broadest strokes of crude generalities, as if the Patriarch Abraham and the Apostle Paul were all partisans of Zionism, liberalism and the Allied history of World War II.

Why is the statement from Pope Pius XI, “Spiritually we are all semites,” supposed to be some ultimate means for shaming into silence critics of the Talmud, and persons who question Judaic tales of homicidal gassings in Auschwitz? When we dare to ask such questions in the face of rabbinic and Vatican outrage, we are fulfilling our rights as Christians and the imperative bequeathed to us by St. Paul himself: “Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth" (Titus 1:14).

“Spiritually we are all semites.” Indeed!  And when objective and unbiased genetic testing at a high level of scientific verification is performed in the future, we will find many Arabs who are semites and many so-called Jews who are not (Rev. 2:9 and 3:9).

Bishop Fellay seems to endorse Pope John Paul II’s perverse declaration that, “the Jews are our elder brothers in the faith,” although Fellay uses the term “Old Covenant.” Which “Jews” ­ -- ancient or modern? Does Fellay mean to say, the “Jews” of the Israeli state? The “Jews” of Chabad-Lubavitch? Does he refer to “Jews” like Maimonides, the Alter Rebbe, the Chafetz Chaim, Joseph Karo as our “elder brothers” in the “Covenant”?

The religion of Orthodox Judaism is a complete betrayal of the Old Testament. Those who follow it are not our elder brothers in the Old Covenant of the Bible. Their faith consists of the Talmud and worship of themselves, not worship of God (Babylonian Talmud: Bava Metzia 59b and Mo’ed Kattan 16b). Contemporary Orthodox Judaism is a blasphemy, many hundreds of times more corrupt that it was at the time the Pharisees persecuted Jesus Christ.

What then does Bishop Fellay’s phrase actually denote, “our elder brothers in the Old Covenant”? Does it denote that because today’s Israelis and Zionists allege that they are physically descended of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we Christians have a solidarity with them based on their race? If that is the case, what then does the bishop make of the words of St. John the Baptist, when he said, in response to the racial brag of the Pharisees: “Do not presume to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father,' for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire." Matthew 3: 9-10.

The ancient Pharisees had the same prestigious idea about their racial heritage as does Bishop Fellay. But what did Christ say to them in response? “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God” (John 8:39-40).

“Do not presume to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father...

“If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did...”

This is a radically different doctrine from the one put forth by the recent popes and the SSPX Superior General. Both St. John and Our Lord Jesus Christ defined the Jews’ connection to Abraham on the basis of their “fruits” and their “works.”

What are the fruits and works of the Christ-hating rabbis?

On what basis, other than racial prestige, can they be termed “elder brothers in the covenant”? Such a statement is liberal nonsense, concocted to curry favor with counterfeit-Israel and the Vatican that has become its most pernicious servant.

Is it “antisemitism” to reject this modernist palaver about Christianity’s supposed “elder brothers”? We adhere instead to the traditional Biblical and Catholic standard ­that the members of the synagogue of Judaism constitute the Antichrist.

We hear a great deal of thunder from Bishop Fellay about “Antisemitism,” and not a whisper about the Judaic Antichrist. What does Scripture say? “Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father.” 1 John 2:22-23.

To deny this fact, by spreading confusion concerning what is the “covenant” of “the Jews,” and claiming that the covenant of “Jews” in general, without qualification, precedes and is the elder brother of Christianity, is a scandal, a source of grave confusion, and an abdication of the prophetic voice of warning which Marcel Lefebvre desired that his successors would embody.

While Bishop Richard Williamson’s remarks in the past have sometimes been intemperate and poorly timed, his views on Judaism do not differ from those of Archbishop Lefebvre. Therefore, is Bishop Fellay suggesting indirectly that Archbishop Lefebvre was “antisemitic?” Is this why some of Lefebvre’s speeches have been suppressed by Fellay?

Another of the four SSPX bishops, Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, is well aware of the truth about Judaism. It is unfortunate that out of a mistaken sense of diplomacy he remains silent while Bishop Fellay continues to publicly batter a mostly defenseless brother bishop (Williamson) for supposed “sins” of Hitlerism and antisemitism of which he is not guilty.

Bishop Fellay states concerning Judaic persons: “Christianity places Charity at a supreme level.” Yet he has no charity toward Bishop Williamson. He repeatedly drags his name and reputation through the mud and uses him as a scapegoat.

In fact, Bishop Fellay has managed to sufficiently bully Bishop Williamson into avoidance of the truth. Williamson has in recent weeks more fervently denounced the German philosopher Immanuel Kant, than any rabbi. In his last column he attacked “Protestantism and liberalism” as the great evils of history. He omitted Judaism. His self-censorship is patently in deference to the lynch mob atmosphere Bishop Fellay has stirred against him. The silence of the other two SSPX bishops in the face of Fellay’s scurrilous campaign of calumny has no doubt emboldened Fellay.

Bishop Tissier de Mallerais is presiding over a two-day “Kingship of Christ” symposium in Kansas City in October that studiously avoids any serious or sustained study of Judaism or its disastrous infiltration of the modern Church. Of course, he is “just being diplomatic.” In this emergency, at five minutes to midnight on the clock of destiny, such avoidance is a dereliction of the duty incumbent upon the office of bishop.

How is it that clerical Catholic fellow-travelers with Judaism are so bold as to proclaim their liberalism from the housetops, while those who know the truth dare not? How does God work His will on earth if not through his human instruments on earth? And if those instruments are too enamored of timidity in the name of diplomacy, then what?

The Catholic Church has witnessed the current and past pope visit synagogues several times ­-- not to admonish the sinners and instruct the ignorant in those places ­ -- which would be a salutary missionary activity to undertake, in the spirit of the apostles and St. Vincent Ferrer ­-- but rather, the two popes encouraged the enthralled in those synagogues to remain in their sins!

Bishop Fellay has cut his suit to fit the pattern of the modern Vatican, wherein the ancient weed of Neo-Platonic Kabbalism and Talmudism has emerged in full bloom in two pontificates, to the ruination of countless souls. If the salvation of souls is not our highest objective, then what is? If souls are being lost to eternal damnation because Archbishop Lefebvre’s successor believes he must play the part of the consummate politician in order to save the SSPX from the wrath of the Roman curia and the Zionist government of Germany (where the SSPX has schools and a seminary), what then?

To Bishop Fellay, we say, if your Excellency truly loves the “Jews,” then you will tell them the truth which the Church of Jesus Christ has always proclaimed to them: they have no faith and no covenant without Christ. They abandoned the Old Testament religion of Israel when they abandoned Jesus. They are not custodians of the Bible; neither do they honor it, or the Patriarchs. In their texts, they denigrate Noah, Isaiah and even Abraham. They use a Pharisaic and Kabbalistic exegesis of Scripture with multiple levels of alleged meaning, which degrades the Word of God into a mere totem, whereupon man’s fantasies are projected and institutionalized.

This fantastic Talmudic and midrashic exegesis has been taken up by Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI and incorporated into the Catholic hermeneutic. We will give but one example. On Holy Name Sunday in both Novus Ordo (diocese of Spokane) and even traditional pulpits (Fraternity of St. Peter), which we have heard with our own ears, in 2010 and 2011 respectively, it is taught that the Name of God (YHVH) was so holy it was to be pronounced only once a year by the high priest. This teaching is put forth with the strong implication that we are to imitate this “Biblical” example concerning the Name of God.

This is not Biblical, however. It is false doctrine -- a counterfeit human tradition about the Name of God nowhere to be found in the Word of God. The God of Israel repeatedly demanded that His people be known by His Name and that His Name be invoked by them (Exodus 3:15). The superstitious proscription against pronouncing God’s name, except once a year, is from the written record of the once oral law of the Pharisees -- the Mishnah -- which, with the Gemara, forms the Talmud.

On June, 29, 2008 the "Letter to the Bishops' Conferences on the Name of God," a document promulgated by the "Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments," ordered, at the direction of Pope Benedict XVI, God's name is "neither to be used or pronounced" in Catholic liturgy, hymns or prayers. Pope Benedict is promulgating the word of the Pharisees in Mishnah Sanhedrin 10:1, in preference to the Word of God in Exodus 3:15 and Psalm 145:21 (Jerusalem Bible translation). This is how serious are the inroads of Talmudism into Catholicism.

Will Bishop Fellay resort to invoking the tiresome device of crying “antisemitism” as a way to silence vigilance and protest over the fact that Pope Benedict prefers to obey the Talmud rather than the Old Testament? Christians are indeed children of Abraham. How then can they be children of a Talmud in which Abraham and the God of Abraham have no part?

Where God is, there is the Truth. The truth about Pharisaic Judaism, of which today’s Orthodox Judaism is the direct descendant, was declared by Jesus Christ, recorded in the New Testament, taught by the early Church, the Fathers of the Church and all the saints canonized before 1970. Yet, suddenly the modern zeitgeist has determined that Truth is “antisemitic”!

And you, Bishop Fellay, do you still claim to be the guardian of the traditional Catholic Society founded by Archbishop Lefebvre, or have you become the paladin of the politically correct lucubrations of the modernist heresy?

Death threat e-mailed to Hoffman

"We will be paying you a little visit next month, to offer you your very own circumcision, from the neck down"

While death threats are routine, I thought I would share this particularly egregious one for my own protection. It arrived several hours after I had sent a courteous e-mail questioning a column on the Talmud written by University of Haifa Prof. Steven Plaut (I sent my questions via e-mail to Plaut and his publisher, the Brooklyn-based "Jewish Press").

I am not making any connection between the threatening e-mail I received (see below) and Prof. Plaut or the "Jewish Press." I am only stating a fact concerning the sequence of the e-mail I have sent and received. 

To the best of my knowledge, I have not received a communication by e-mail or any other means, from Plaut or "Jewish Press."

Caveat: the following threatening e-mail contains exceedingly vulgar language.

Yes, you Nazi crackers are amazing. You refuse to get a junior high school equivalency.  Your biggest problem in life is that you have never had sex, and never even found anyone willing to spend the night with you long enough to give you gonorrhea!

You hate all dem Joos because your penis is so tiny.  You march about shouting Nazi slogans to cover up the fact that your mother abandoned you back there with the barnyard animals when she ran off with that nice Nigerian fellow, leaving you in the trailer park.

We know all about your Momma and how her abandoning you there in the trailer park turned you into cracker trash.  But other trailer park scum have learned to read, so why couldn't you?  Is it because of your complex concerning your little tiny penis?  But you know, your momma is way ahead of you. She appreciates a good circumcision!  She was saying just last week how much she enjoyed a circumcised penis slipping in and out of her ass.  Circumcised ones tickle her, she says.  She gives little squeals of delight.  She says she likes it especially when a circumcized penis massages her belly button. From her inside.

Speaking of circumcision, we will be paying you a little visit next month, to offer you your very own circumcision, from the neck down.  So keep a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree, since your Nazi penis is not large enough to hold one up.  Meanwhile, you can try to work on your multiplication tables, for some day you might be able to get one of those cherished minimum wage jobs and get off welfare at last!

Until them you can Sieg Heil your way around the trailer park, push your supermarket cart about, and ask people for some spare change.  The future is bright.  Remember that finishing junior high school can sometimes propel you all the way to a job at Walmart and to indoor plumbing!   You have heard about that, right?  It is what other folks use instead of the trailer park outhouse where you do all that important thinking of yours.

The Ancient Alliance between Judaism and Islam

Here is the missing piece of the puzzle that renders absurd the new Judeo-American and Judeo-European crusade against Islam:

"Jewish law' is the Talmud and the Halakha, the Jewish equivalent of the Muslim Sharia. It means in practice that legal norms adopted 1500 years ago and more will trump the legal norms evolved over recent centuries in Britain and other European countries. Similar clauses exist in the laws of countries like Pakistan and Egypt. The similarity between Jewish and Islamic law is not accidental - Arabic-speaking Jewish sages, like Moses Maimonides ('the Rambam') and their contemporary Muslim legal experts influenced each other."
Source: Uri Avnery, "Dichter's Law," August 12, 2011

Islam was profoundly influenced by the Talmud. This is evidenced in part by Islam's hostility toward St. Paul and its denial of the Resurrection, two principal rabbinic doctrines.

Judaism was formerly allied with Islam against Christianity. 

The Crusades were wars waged against Islam and Judaism.

The American Protestant Fundamentalist and Catholic neocon crusade against Islam has only one eye. It   will not see Judaism’s evil or its influence over Islam. It will not see that Sharia and Talmudic halacha are equally deserving of vigilance and exposure. 

In the kingdom of the blind, one-eyed people are kings.

Mr. Hoffman: Perhaps you can send some references (books, articles, etc...) that supports the idea that Judaism is equal to Islam. I know Fr. Raphael Johnson holds this view.
Thank you.

Dear JP

Judaism = Islam is not an equation I have ever put forth.

Islam is the farthest out of all the Christian heresies; it was bent by Judaism; that does not mean that it is synonymous with Judaism.

There are similarities between Sharia and Talmudic law but Islam is absent self-worship and racism -- a huge distinguishing factor.

I am not acquainted with Rev. Raphael Johnson.

To Each His Own Kippur: The Protest of the Synagogue of Rome


Rabbi Di Segni, the chief rabbi of Rome, accuses the Vatican of wanting to impose the cross of Jesus on the Jews as well, in the place of Yom Kippur. He is denouncing the rupture of dialogue and bringing into question his presence in Assisi. The clarifications of Cardinal Koch. The thought of Ratzinger. 
by Sandro Magister

(MICHAEL HOFFMAN'S AFTERWORD FOLLOWS THIS EXCERPT FROM MAGISTER'S REPORT)
ROME, August 5, 2011 – The controversy has gone mostly unnoticed, but has brought into grave doubt the presence of the Jews at the "Day of reflection, dialogue, and prayer for peace and justice in the world" convened by Benedict XVI for next October 27 in Assisi. The spark was an article by Cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the pontifical council for Christian unity, in L'Osservatore Romano on July 7, illustrating the meaning of the Day.
Di Segni had explained the meaning of this feast before, on the front page of L'Osservatore Romano on October 8, 2008. And he had emphasized back then that Yom Kippur manifests the "irreconcilable differences between the two worlds," the world of the Jews and that of the Christians, because "a Christian, on the basis of his faith, no longer needs Kippur, just as a Jew who has Kippur does not need the salvation from sin proposed by the Christian faith...Di Segni adds – the Christian "must not propose to the Jew his own beliefs and interpretations as indications of the 'decisive way', because this truly threatens to reintroduce the theology of substitution, and the Cross becomes an obstacle."
And he continues:
"One's own difference cannot be proposed to the other as the model to follow. This crosses a boundary in Jewish-Christian relations that can be blurred, but must remain unviolated. At the least it is not a way of dialogue that could be of interest to the Jews."
Beside the reply from Rabbi Di Segni, the July 29 issue of "L'Osservatore Romano" also published Cardinal Koch's counterreply:
"We absolutely maintain that the Jews should look at the cross as we Christians do, in order to set out on the road to Assisi together. [...] So the intention is not to replace the Jewish Yom Kippur with the cross of Christ, even if Christians see in the cross 'the permanent and universal Yom Kippur.' It is here that the fundamental and very delicate point of Jewish-Christian dialogue is touched upon, or the question of how to reconcile the conviction, binding for Christians as well, that God's covenant with the people of Israel has permanent validity with the Christian faith in universal redemption in Jesus Christ, in such a way that, on the one side, the Jews should not get the impression that their religion is seen by Christians as obsolete, and on the other that Christians should not renounce any aspect of their faith. Without a doubt, this fundamental question will continue to occupy Jewish-Christian dialogue for a long time to come."
Koch was called personally by Benedict XVI to head the pontifical council for Christian unity, and to deal with the dialogue with Judaism in particular. And he is one of the cardinals of the curia most in harmony with the pope's vision.
To understand this, it is enough to open the second volume of the book "Jesus of Nazareth" to the fourth chapter, where Benedict XVI analyzes the "priestly prayer" of Jesus on the eve of his passion, which occupies chapter 17 of the Gospel of John.
"This prayer," the pope writes, "is understandable only against the background of the liturgy of the Jewish feast of expiation, Yom Kippur. The ritual of the feast with its rich theological content is realized in the prayer of Jesus, realized in the literal sense: the rite is translated into the reality that it signifies. [...] The prayer of Jesus manifests him as the high priest of the great day of expiation. His cross and his being lifted up constitute the day of expiation of the world, on which the entire history of the world, against all human sin and destruction, finds its meaning. [...] The priestly prayer of Jesus [...] is so to speak the always accessible feast of the reconciliation of God with men."
It is no coincidence that the prophet Jonah, the prophet who is read on the Jewish feast of Kippur, appears at the center of the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel, between the creation of the world and the last judgment.
In a mysterious remark, Jesus attributed to himself the "sign of Jonah" (Luke 11:29-32). And indeed, he added: "There is something greater than Jonah here."
That sign of contradiction which Jesus was for the Jews of his time still remains between Christians and Jews, and is manifested in Yom Kippur.
The Jews will celebrate the feast of expiation on October 10, a few days before the Day in Assisi. (End quote from Sandro Magister; emphasis supplied).
Judaism’s Yom Kippur is Talmudic, not Biblical
by Michael Hoffman 
In the report by Sandro Magister, we see the usual theological and Scriptural confusion sown by the modern Vatican, illustrative of the perils of the ecumenical mission itself.
The Yom Kippur of Talmudic-Pharisaic Judaism has no basis in the Bible. This is admitted by the Mishnah and by the Rambam (Rabbi Moses Maimonides). Yom Kippur as practiced by Judaism today is derived from the Talmud, not Scripture. It is a parody of rites prescribed in the Old Testament.
In this parody one discovers a rabbi-concocted ritual deceit known as Kol Nidrei (also spelled Nidre). It is because of the nature of the Kol Nidrei rite that the synagogue is jammed with Judaic persons during Yom Kippur: Kol Nidrei pledges the nullification of all contracts, vows and promises which will be made in the coming year.
The Talmudic law concerning the Kol Nidrei rite is as follows: “And he who desires that none of his vows made during the year shall be valid, let him stand at the beginning of the year and declare, ‘Every vow which I make in the future shall be null.”

Judaic persons who attend no other services go out of their way to be present on Yom Kippur eve just to participate in Kol Nidrei. The prayer is in medieval Aramaic and a translation is seldom supplied, since the prayer's content defies moral logic: Kol Nidrei is a blanket request that God hold Judaics guiltless for vows they make and do not honor.

The reader will note that the Talmud declares that the Kol Nidrei action nullifying vows is to be taken at the beginning of the year and with regard to promises made in the future.  This distinction is critical since it contradicts what the media claim about Yom Kippur -- that it is a humble, penitential rite consisting of begging forgiveness for promises broken in the past, rather than what it is, a nullification made in advance for oaths yet to be made. This “advance stipulation” is called bitul tenai and is the basis for a Judaic being absolved in advance of breaking future promises, or to use the rabbinic lawyer’s jargon: “declaration of intent for the anticipatory invalidation of future vows.” 
  
The Vatican is aware of this, but Pope Benedict and his cardinals conspire in the pretense that Judaism’s Yom Kippur is of Biblical Israel. It is one thing to promote a lie out of ignorance; and quite a higher magnitude of transgression to promote it knowing that it is a lie.
In addition to Kol Nidrei, another notable factor that distinguishes the Talmudic Yom Kippur practiced by 21st century Judaism from the Yom Kippur of the Bible is the rabbinic-voodoo kaparot rite, which involves swinging a chicken over one’s head and transferring one’s sins to the chicken.
Observe as Pope Benedict XVI implicates Our Lord in these pagan Judaic abominations: “...the liturgy of the Jewish feast of expiation, Yom Kippur. The ritual of the feast with its rich theological content is realized in the prayer of Jesus...”
If the pope is referring to a feast derived from the Old Testament he should say so and clearly distinguish it from the contemporary rite which is a blasphemous parody. He fails to make the distinction, as does Cardinal Koch, who adds the outrageous statement: “the intention is not to replace the Jewish Yom Kippur with the cross of Christ...”
Why not? Is it not an act of hate to withhold the liberation represented by the Cross and abandon Judaics to the malignant and empty ceremonies of Kol Nidrei and Kaparot, which comprise the Talmudic Yom Kippur? Is the Vatican a partner with the rabbis in sending Judaic souls to hell?
The cardinal also states: “...the Jews should not get the impression that their religion is seen by Christians as obsolete...” 

If the religion of the ancient Pharisees institutionalized as Orthodox Judaism is not obsolete, then why did Jesus bother to incarnate on earth? Did He do so exclusively for the benefit of the gentiles and not the Jews? Impossible! Cf. Matthew 15:24.

Jesus entrusted the Keys of His Kingdom to St. Peter, which Peter used to open the Kingdom to the Jews, then the Samaritans, and lastly, to the Gentiles (Matthew 16:19; Acts 2:5 & 41; 8:14-17; 10:35). Christianity is the Old Testament religion made new in Christ Jesus. Orthodox Judaism is the recrudescence of the Pharisaic system of the first century, supplemented by innumerable Mishnaic, Talmudic and subsequent rabbinic traditions of men. It is not only obsolete, it constitutes a false system that substitutes for the worship of Yahweh, the worship of the Judaic man, as personified by the rabbi.

Cardinal Koch says, "God's covenant with the people of Israel has permanent validity..."

This is an allusion to racial Israel. The cardinal's claim can only be made by misinterpreting a few lines in Romans 11 and ignoring the declaration of Jesus Christ in John 8:39-40 and of St. John the Baptist in Matthew 3: 9-10, as well as the whole testimony of the early church.

Moreover, if a Judaic is going to stake his hope of eternal salvation on his racial status, with encouragement from the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, he had better be certain that he is indeed a direct descendant of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. How exactly this is genetically determined is a mystery. We find a warning about the claim to being a Jew in the Biblical definition of who it is that constitutes the Synagogue of Satan: "those who say they are Jews and are not" (Rev. 3:9).

The modern Vatican theology of John Paul II and Benedict XVI,  "God's covenant with the people of Israel has permanent validity..." gives a false sense of spiritual security to those who are, or who imagine they are, Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. No man, whether Jew or gentile, has any hope of salvation without belief in Jesus Christ. If there is any type of salvation whatsoever in being a Jew who is genetically descended of Abraham, then Jesus Christ's evangelism to the Jews was an act of futility and superfluity (Matthew 5:20).
Rabbi Di Segni is not mealy-mouthed like the pope and his cardinals. He candidly states: “the Christian must not propose to the Jew his own beliefs and interpretations as indications of the 'decisive way,' because this truly threatens to reintroduce the theology of substitution...”
The Vatican doesn’t issue any “must nots” to the rabbi, but the rabbi issues them to the Church. He is telling the Roman Catholic hierarchy that if they want his prestigious presence at the October 27 Assisi jamboree, they had better not preach the Gospel to the Judaic people. Specifically, they must not preach Christ as the “decisive way,” or revive the ancient Christian replacement theology (“theology of substitution”) which holds that Jews are no longer in covenant with God through racial status, but only through saving faith in Jesus Christ. We are indebted to the rabbi for demonstrating the betrayal of the Gospel upon which modern papal ecumenicism is based.
