Pope Benedict is Jewish, says Muslim expert
Spero News ^ | 10/14/12

Posted on 10/14/2012 4:28:32 PM PDT by markomalley

Muhammad Galaa Idris, who is the head Hebrew Studies Department at Tanta University in Egypt, has claimed that Pope Benedict XVI is either Jewish or has been “Judaized.” The Egyptian academic said this earlier this year in an interview with Al-Rahma TV, according to footage recorded and translated by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute. “The current pope Benedict IV or VII or whatever is even more Zionist then Herzl,” said Idris, adding “I follow his statements, and I’ve already said, that if that man is not a Jew then he has been Judaized, ” he concluded outrageously.

When asked by the host to provide examples of the pope’s Zionism, Idris said that “he recognized what the Nazis did to the Jews, the Jewish Holocaust,” and that, “all his statements are hostile to the Arabs and the Muslims.” Idris provided a reviewed of the "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” - an anti-Semitic fiction widely recognized as a fraud perpetrated by the government of Czar Nicholas II yet widely cited ever since - for the same channel, portraying its false assertions as fact.

Transcript:

Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian researcher Muhammad Galaa Idris, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 26, 2012.

Muhammad Galaa Idris: The current pope – Benedict IV or VII, or whatever – is even more Zionist than Herzl. I follow his statements, and I've already said that if that man is not a Jew, then he has been Judaized.

What he says exceeds what the Jews themselves say. He is more of a Zionist than the Zionists themselves.

Interviewer: Give us some examples...

Muhammad Galaa Idris: All his statements are in support of the Jews. He recognized what the Nazis did to the Jews, the Jewish Holocaust. All his statements are hostile to the Arabs and the Muslims. He slandered Islam, the Koran, the Muslims, and the Arabs.

Well, at least he knew who Herzl was, which is more than I can say for many Liberal Jews in NY.

He saw what the Nazis did to the Jews, as well as to the Germans they ruled. He risked his life to get away from them. He probably also noticed the parallels between what the Nazis said as they came to power and what the Muslims say now.

Yes, obviously an "expert," who has studied this question thoroughly!

Muslim expert, maybe. He can tell his followers at exactly what angle to cut off the heads of infidels or uppity wives and children.

I've already said that if that man is not a Jew, then he has been Judaized.

Big deal. The Founder or Christianity was Jewish.

My Catholic husband just informed me that the first two popes were Jewish. So the muzzles are only a couple of millennia off. A reoccurring theme in their “culture.”

And of course as per the Bible we are all grafted into the tree of Abraham, and also fellow citizens of Israel per the apostle Paul. Strange, it is only Islam that demonizes both Jews and Christians, while calling them People of the Book....”People of the Bible”, the true Word of God.

St. Peter was definitely Jewish. Whether St. Linus was, I don't know. The city of Volterra, Italy, claims him as a native son, but that seems unlikely (that's in an out-of-the-way part of Tuscany, so may not have had any Christians by the 60s of the first century...of course Linus could be a Volterran who had moved to Rome. A lot of the early popes have Greek-sounding names, which could mean they originated in the Greek-speaking population of Rome (which would include most of the Jews who were living in Rome, I suppose).

One of the Merovingian kings forcibly converted many of the Jews who were then living in what is now France. At other times in the Middle Ages some of the Jews of Europe converted to Christianity (either voluntarily or under compulsion) and anyone of European descent now could be descended from one of those Jews...so Benedict XVI could have Jewish ancestors, and the same could be true of John Paul II, John Paul I, Paul VI, etc.

Of course this Muslim "expert" is still an idiot.

Maybe Icelanders would be an exception if there were no Jews in Norway or the Western Isles of Scotland at the time that Iceland was first settled.

This is OK, but my favourite one to come out of Egypt is the one about the Mossad controlling sharks to kill Muslems and hurt the beach tourism industry.

really? Who? I think its from the stereotype of “stein” being Jewish, when it could be an ending for a non-Jewish germanic person, and then the people are forgetting the numbers of Sephardic, Yemeni, Bene-Israeli, Baghdadi etc. Jews

I’m not sure about Pope Linus being of Jewish ethnic origin. However, Christians were considered a sect of the Jews until at least 70 BC

actually, Jews also disseminated in Arabia and into Persia, and Mohammed forcibly converted many, so there could be many of Jewish heritage among Arab Moslems

first off I am not of Spanish origin...but

like my ‘alias’....certain words were subject to anglo mispronunciation. Vaquero was Spanish for Cowboy...but the cowboys north of the borders mangled the pronunciation to “Buck-a-roo” similarly “hoosegow” is a mangled version of “juzgado” which means jail for courtroom.

and as far as the criminals in the regime comin’ for me?
“ Lock and Load”...and “ Molon Labe” comes to mind...

Well, there’s this FR post about polling Jews:

“Jewish type names are easily recognizable. Not that they are all Jewish or support the Demorat ticket but most can feel assured that the name does reflect being Jewish.”

When Mark Steyn says he’s not Jewish but plays one on TV, he’s not kidding about what some of his audience thinks!

Trying to gigure out if someone is Jewish from a name has lots of pitfalls.

Some names, like Shapiro, for instance are rather obvious. Others which are Germanic are problematics. Names like Klein, Stein, Friedmann, Marx, etc. are ubiquitous throughout the German speaking world and have absolutely nothing to do with being Jewish.

The sad thing is, though, that this crazy guy in Egypt is attempting to paint a much bigger target on the Pope’s back by getting all his cronies to look at the Pope in this light.

There were a lot of Jews in Yathrib (Medina) at the time of the Hegira in 622—but it’s possible that some of the Arabian Jews of that period were descendants from converts rather than from the original Israelites. There were Jews in a town or oasis in NW Arabia who made a treaty with Muhammad and were allowed to stay there, and I once saw something from the late 19th or early 20th century which implied that they were still there, but I don’t know if that information was correct then (let alone now).
