 A Greek Bishop’s Anti-Semitic Tirade

December 22, 2010, 1:30 pm
A Greek Bishop’s Anti-Semitic Tirade
Leaders of Greece’s small Jewish community objected on Wednesday to televised remarks by a Greek Orthodox bishop who blamed the country’s financial problems on a conspiracy of Jewish bankers and claimed that the Holocaust was orchestrated by Zionists.

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece complained to church authorities about the anti-Semitic remarks made by the Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus during a recent interview on Greek television, according to a statement (in Greek) on the group’s Web site.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported that the bishop “said that there is a conspiracy to enslave Greece and Christian Orthodoxy. He also accused international Zionism of trying to destroy the family unit by promoting one-parent families and same-sex marriages.”

According to the news agency, when the bishop was then asked, “Why do you disagree with Hitler’s policies? If they are doing all this, wasn’t he right in burning them?” he replied: “Adolf Hitler was an instrument of world Zionism and was financed from the renowned Rothschild family with the sole purpose of convincing the Jews to leave the shores of Europe and go to Israel to establish the new Empire.” He added that Jewish bankers like “Rockefeller, Rothschild and Soros control the international banking system that controls globalization.”

Greece’s Jewish community is ancient, but only about 10,000 Greek Jews survived the Holocaust.

The president of the European Jewish Congress, Moshe Kantor, called for the bishop to be fired, telling the Israeli press on Wednesday: “It is completely unacceptable that someone senior in a mainstream European religious denomination can make such repulsive and hate-filled claims.”

Earlier this year, the bishop wrote to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II to demand that Elton John be stripped of his knighthood for telling Parade magazine, “Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man.” The bishop also complained to Britain’s ambassador to Greece about the singer’s “unacceptable and absurd” comment, which, he said, had caused “deep pain and bitterness.”

What this man said is true. Praise God for this man's courage. Jesus also exposed the spirit of the anti- christ in Jewish leadership but be sure anyone who does will be persecuted!

John 7:7
7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil.

Any time you testify that what the world does is evil it will hate you just like it did Jesus...........

I rest my case.

dmoney, maybe you just didn't explain yourself well enough?

You're not anti-Jewish people or replacement theology, are you?

I think some folks just don't realize that there are Many types of "Zionism". Some are nice sane people. I have a Messianic website that goes into the many types of Zionism.
There are those who fit this description that Jesus gave -
Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

And not all of the "rich men of the world" who are the movers and shakers of taking over Israel for antiChrist are Jewish.
There are wackos out there that blame it all on these that call themselves Jews, but "the Elite" are not all self-proclaimed Jews.

In a topic like this - one must really explain themselves well.

The Israelites have every right to be in Israel and they were headed there back in the late 1800's, without the aid of the rich men of the earth and the UN.

This NYTimes article does not say how this man feels about the Jewish people and their right to live in Israel. It 'seems' this article was just to stir things up - as has been the plan since Albert Pike and before - to pit all 3 monotheistic religions against each other for a WW3.

IF this man is Replacement Theology, then he has no right to speak on this topic. The "rich men of this earth" are a different type of 'Replacement' belief. They want Jerusalem for Illuminist & Masonic reasons, for the coming capital of the world for their 'christ'(antiChrist). They want to "Replace" (actually - get rid of) all of GOD's chosen people - both the Remnant Jews & Christians.
There were non-selfproclaimed Jewish 'rich men of this earth' that funded Hitler as well, for the same reason.

We have to mourn for Jerusalem because EVERYBODY wants a piece of her - but Thank GOD, Messiah will come.

  O come, O come, Emmanuel

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.


Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
Who orderest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.


O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory over the grave.


O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.


O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.


O come, O come, great Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times once gave the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.


O come, Thou Root of Jesse’s tree,
An ensign of Thy people be;
Before Thee rulers silent fall;
All peoples on Thy mercy call.


O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.

 Re: A Greek Bishop’s Anti-Semitic Tirade

There are several types of Jewish movements out there and there is at least one movement ( that opposes Zionism and the state of Israel. These people are Jewish as Jewish can be. Because of their belief, does that make them anti semitic and evil?

Just what if, lets suppose there is a Zionist conspiracy going on, does that make anyone who accuses the Zionist anti semitic?

I really am trying to make sense of this. I was debating whether to enter this thread, but I am trying to understand a point.

Is it the opinion of some that Jews do no wrong?

For example, lets say a Jewish man steals from a store and is accused of stealing the items. Is the person making the accusation anti semitic?

Just to let everyone know. I am for the Jewish people and their existence to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
