POPE MAY VISIT ISRAEL IN MARCH 2014


Pope’s rabbi friend says Francis eyeing March Israel visit

Catholic leader reportedly says he wishes to realize a ‘lifelong dream’ of reaching the Holy Land, though he’s been here before

Edelstein also asked the pope to help combat anti-Semitism: “There is still anti-Semitism in the world; I ask you to use your influence to combat it.”Pope Francis’s planned visit will mark the 50th anniversary of Pope Paul VI’s visit to Jerusalem in 1964, which took place before the Vatican recognized the State of Israel.
The future trip would mark Francis’s second visit to the Holy Land. He arrived here in 1973, just as the Yom Kippur War broke out. As The Times of Israel revealed in April, Jorge Mario Bergoglio (as he was then) spent six days confined to his Jerusalem hotel, studying the Letters of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.
President Shimon Peres first invited Francis to Israel immediately after his election, calling on him to visit as a spiritual — not a political — leader.The sooner you visit, the better; in these days, a new opportunity is being created for peace and your arrival could contribute significantly to increasing the trust and belief in peace,” Peres said.Francis would try to find time to come to Israel “in the near future,” the President’s Office said in July.Both of the pontiff’s immediate predecessors visited Israel — Benedict XVI in 2009, and John Paul II in 2000.

EU accuses Palestinians of wasting €2 billion in aid

Leaked report alleges ‘significant shortcomings’ in PA’s fund management

October 13, 2013, 4:25 pm 15-The Times of Israel

The Palestinian Authority squandered nearly €2 billion ($2.7 billion) in European aid through corruption and mismanagement, a British newspaper claimed Sunday, leaking the contents of a not-yet-published European document.According to the article, in Britain’s Sunday Times, the European Court of Auditors, an EU organ set up in 1975 to audit the EU’s income and spending, found that Europe had little control over €1.95 billion ($2.64 billion) spent in the West Bank and Gaza between 2008 and 2012, noting “significant shortcomings.”
EU investigators who visited Jerusalem, Gaza and the West Bank reported their inability to address “high-level risks” such as “corruption or funds not being used for their intended purpose,” the newspaper said.No comment from ECA was available at time of publication.Transparency International, a Berlin-based watchdog monitoring corporate and political corruption, claimed that the state of paralysis afflicting the Palestinian parliament since 2007 has “given the executive unlimited management over public funds.” Nepotism is also commonplace in the Palestinian public and private sectors, the organization claimed.
A Palestinian opinion poll conducted in July 2012 found that 71 percent of respondents believed that corruption existed in PA institutions under the control of President Mahmoud Abbas. Some 57% of respondents said the same of Hamas-controlled institutions in the Gaza Strip.Similarly, a hearing held at the House of Representative’s Committee on Foreign Affairs in July 2012 accused the Palestinian political establishment of “chronic kleptocracy,” pointing the finger directly at Mahmoud Abbas and members of his family.Azmi Shuaibi, head of Transparency Palestine, the local chapter of Transparency International, said in April that his organization was investigating 29 Palestinian officials on counts of fraud and money laundering.

Vesuvius: Avenger of Jerusalem

October 11, 2013, 2:42 am 7-The Times of Israel


1st century Roman victims in Pompeii
Very few people have taken into consideration the impact of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE/AD on the spread of Christianity in the Roman empire. Nor have people realized the connection made by people living in the 1st century between the eruption and the destruction of Jerusalem. But consider this – the city of Pompeii was named after a Roman general who desecrated the Jerusalem Temple. It was also the play capital of the Roman elite. When it was buried in ash, many people thought that the Romans had it coming, and saw the eruption as divine retribution.Today, tourists wander around Pompeii’s ruins overwhelmed by the feeling that they’ve gone through a time machine. I remember, entering the Pompeii brothel and seeing the paintings of men and women in various sexual positions. Everyone tittered as if they were staring at an ancient version of Playboy. Ever the party pooper, I pointed out that the “whores” in the brothel were probably nice Jewish girls from Judea, forced into prostitution by their Roman masters. Remember, Jerusalem fell in 70 CE, and the last of the Jewish resistance fell at Masada in 73 CE. There were so many Jewish slaves on the Italian peninsula that Roman’s were complaining about the collapse of their savings, since the price of slaves had plummeted as a result of the influx of the Judeans. The destruction of Judea was just six years prior to the eruption of Vesuvius and the destruction of Pompeii.

Wall painting from the brothel
Among the Judean slaves were the original followers of Jesus. Again, remember, Jesus was crucified around 32 CE. His brother James was executed in 62 CE, just four years before the Great Jewish Revolt. Meaning, some of the slaves in Pompeii must have heard the Sermon on the Mount.In Pompeii, Hebrew names such as “Martha” have been found etched on the walls. More than this, the words “Sodom and Gomorrah” have been found written in graffiti. And someone even wrote the word “Cherem” i.e., Hebrew for “marked for destruction”, on the doorway of a house. The first archaeological attestation of the word “Christian” is on a wall in Pompeii. What all this means is that the Jews and the so-called Judeo-Christians warned their Roman masters that the God of Israel would avenge them – that fire and brimstone would rain from heaven and that, like Lot’s Biblical wife, they would turn into human statues. Then, in August 79 CE, exactly nine years after the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem, the Roman elite was buried by the ash of Vesuvius, literally turning them into human statues.

The baker Terentius Neo and his wife
Some pagans became Jews. More became Christians, the new religion out of Judea. In fact, we have the portrait of a couple that owned a bakery that we know for certain were Christians because they removed all the pagan symbols from the bakery, and substituted them with a cross. Put differently, Vesuvius did more for the spread of Christianity than the apostle Paul. I made a film about this. Click here to watch it.Now, my friend and colleague Professor James Tabor, has found a description of the eruption encoded in the Book of Revelation – incredible! See: http://jamestabor.com/2013/10/09/the-destruction-of-pompei-and-the-new-testament-book-of-revelation/ - The history is there if we’re willing to open our eyes.
