The head of the Hebrew Studies Department at Tanta University, Egypt, Muhammad Galaa Idris claimed that the Pope is either Jewish or has been “Judaized” in an interview with Al-Rahma TV earlier this year according to newly released footage from MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“The current pope Benedict IV or VII or whatever is even more Zionist then Herzl,” he claimed during the interview. “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.

Asked by the host to provide examples of the pope’s Zionism, he 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.”

Last year Idris reviewed the antisemitic treatise “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” for the same channel, portraying its false assertions as fact.

    Here is another shock: Jesus was either Jewish or was Judaized! Who knew?

    • Mark Blumenthal

      How could the historical Jesus be anything but Jewish, considering his lineage and background?

      His mother’s name was Miriam. His father’s name was Joseph. They lived in a part of the Middle East that had a substantial population of Jews.

      Most likely, he was born Jewish and raised Jewish. Even most of his teachings are of Jewish origin and would not have been unfamiliar to the Jews of his time.

      This is hardly new information.

  • Lenny Bruce had a bit where he would pretend to have a conversation with the pope and ended it by “Don’t worry nobody found out you’re Jewish”

  • You fail to see the nuggets of good in anyone asserting The Pope is Jewish. Being a Jew is an honor. Have you forgotten?

  • Fredric M. London

    This is incredible! A man who was once a part of Hitler Youth is Jewish or ‘Judaised?’ I know that sick lunatics, such as this ‘professor’ smoke hookah, but I never thought to ask what they use for smoking material. Most of the allegations of these villains come out of thin air. I wonder, sometimes, if any of them are actually stupid enough to believe them.

    • PIM MEIBOSCH

      THE FIRST POPE, PETER, WAS JEWISH.

      FOR THE REST THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THE EARTH IS FLAT.
      WITH STUPIDITY ANYTHING GOES.

      • EJ

        Sincerity is no guarantee of truth. Peter was not the first pope, and I’ll leave it at that.

        Nevertheless, if Ratzinger is pissing those morons off then he must be doing something right.

      • PIM MEIBOSCH

        (Chair of Saint Peter) 22 February. Recognized by the Catholic Church as the first Bishop of Rome (Pope) appointed by Christ.

        BUT PROBABLY ALSO CHRIST WAS NOT A JEW.

        THIS MUST BE THE NEW HISTORY WRITING ACCORDING TO SAINT SIMPLETON.

        • Denis MacEoin

          So what was Jesus? Perhaps he was born a Christian, even before Christianity existed? Or maybe a Muslim, 622 years before the Hijra? Maybe he was a Hindu or a Buddhist….. Look, every scholar who has lived knows perfectly well that Jesus was a Jew and that every one of his disciples was a Jew, and that every member of the first Christian church in Jerusalem was a Jew and observed the Jewish law. You should read a few books on the subject, they might prove enlightening.

  • Gilbert A Cruz

    Well, if the pope is a Jaw or has been “Judaized” and then, this guy Muḥammad is Perubian! LOL!

    • You mean that guy who for 30 years has been wearing a ring that says THERE IS NO GOD BUT MUHAMMAD.

  • joelsk44039

    Another outrageously stupid comment from an “expert” belonging to the “religion of peace.”

  • Obviously Sharia is a mental disorder that causes severe brain malfunction.

  • Ploni

    What does Judaized even mean? Is that supposed to be like Arabized? (What the Arabs did to indigenous people stretching from South Iran to West Saharah in Morocco)
    The irony that they accuse anyone else of doing that to others! LOL

  • He’s right; the pope even wears a kippah!

    As does my smiley (8-)

    • Saidi

      The Pope wears a skullcap NOT a kippah!

      • Ilbert Phillips

        A kippah is a skullcap.

        • Denis MacEoin

          The Pope’s skullcap is called a zuchetto.

  • That’s why Islamic “scholars” are not. A religion that teaches people not to discuss and question eventually succeeds in destroying intelligence.

  • Pope Benedict is doing an excellent job. His recent visit to Lebanon was proof of his sincere attempt at peacemaking with many groups.
