  • Do an internet search for a victorian print called “Gossip” by G Witherspoon. Notice the resemblance to the pope?

    Now look up on eBay a closed auction # 390698023080 an auction for a Reddy Kilowatt card holder. Notice the resemblance?

    Also, take notice of the horns on the victorian print and the horns on Reddy Kilowatt.

  • WILL THIS POOPP RESPECT JUDAISM AND REMOVE HIS GIANT CROSS around his neck when he walks the KOTEL?

    will bibi respect our Torah and not enter into any facility that has crosses, idols,graven images and assorted machinations, maybe even their ancient torture machinery used on outr ancestors and thier current literature used to deceive and convert JEWS?

    MY RABBI ZT’L REFUSED THE INVITE TO GO TO VATICAN LONG AGO, BUT DID INVITE THE POOP TO ‘COME VISIT HIM IN NEW YORK.

    The only issue to be spoken “TO” this poop is to stop the missionary activity in ISRAEL AND all JEWISH AREAS throughout the world.

    also…where does the pope get his red kipa made.
    I like the red, also he wore a blue one once… maybe he went to a bar mitzvah….
    Amazing how the goyim copy sometimes the JEWS and unfortunatly the JEWS COPY THE goyeem.which is why HASHEM STATED TO SEPARATE FROM THE OTHER NATIONS SO WE DONT GET THEIR HABITS.

    HANUKA… GET READY. if you never did anything else as a JEW. DO THIS DEED. LIGHT A MENORAH. MAKE A MENORA…LAY OUT FOIL CAPS PUT A CANDLE IN IT AND LIGHT IT.
    HASHEM is very close to us at that time, extra close…honor HIM AND THE MIRACLE in the temple then and the miracle NOW in spite of JEWISH HATRED RISING AGAIN.
    HASHEM IS YOUR FRIEND..TALK TO ‘HIM’ anytime, anywhere..

    Jewish Men Pass Jimmy Kimmel Social Experiment, Rescuing ‘Spongebob’ in Distress (VIDEO)

    Two Jewish men were the only unwitting participants in a social experiment conducted by Jimmy Kimmel, for his popular TV show. As part of a candid-camera-like sketch featured Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host devised different street scenes to observe human behavior — in particular, to see how long it would take people walking down California’s bustling Hollywood Boulevard to notice and interact with others in distress. One scene involved a man in a Spongebob Squarepants costume who had “fallen down” on the sidewalk and needed help […]

    Famed actress Natalie Portman warned on Friday against the use of Holocaust education to evoke fear and paranoia. In an interview with the U.K. Independent she added that the trauma should make Jews more empathetic to others who have also experienced hatred. “Sometimes it can be subverted to fearmongering and like ‘Another Holocaust is going to happen,’” the Israeli-American star said. “We need to, of course, be aware that hatred exists, antisemitism exists against all sorts of people, not in the same way.

    A Righteous Gentile Navigates the Sharkpool of Washington’s Middle East Correspondents (REVIEW)

    The Tribalist, by Louis Marano, is ostensibly a work of fiction but at its core a kind of love song by a gentile journalist for the State of Israel, and especially its secular Zionist core. (Because of the relentless attacks by left-wing polemicists on Israel’s allegedly “messianic” fringe, it’s often forgotten that most of Israel’s founders and all its leaders have been secular Zionists.) The author, the product of an Italian-American family in Buffalo, served two tours of duty in […]
