A Jewish-Catholic Partnership against Islamist Violence?

The Chief Rabbinates of world Jewry apparently want to partner with the Vatican to combat radical Islam. In a recent letter, they proposed a formal alliance between Judaism and Catholicism, calling “upon the [Catholic] Church to join us in deepening our combat against our generation’s new barbarism, namely the radical offshoots of Islam.”

This extraordinary alliance would unite Orthodox Jewry and the Holy See against their common enemy, jihadist Islam. The Rabbinates’ letter identifies “the very real danger facing many Christians in the Middle East and elsewhere as they are persecuted and menaced by violence and death at the hands of those who invoke God’s Name in vain through violence and terror.”

  • This is a necessity.

    As a Catholic; I’ll think better of the Pope if he chooses to join with Orthodox Judaism in fighting this plague.

    The pope has already capitulated to Islam, or hadn’t you noticed. He won’t step up for his own flock.

      Indeed. The Jews should talk to Benedict instead…

    Lol, not with this pope.

    A Jew….a Rabbi yet has to draw Dopey to a certain problem with genocide concerning his flock.

    This fool is truly sinful.

    The old joke about the 2 sheep and the wolf deciding what to have for supper comes to mind.

    If Pope Gregory the Great were in the Vatican today he would bitchslap Francis silly

    Either the Rabbis’ are being mischievous or they are sorrily unaware of horhays proclivities.

    From their mouths to the Pope’ ears. And may he listen.

    The rabbis would get better results if they teamed with the Kurds, who despise the fanatics.
