The Ancestry Of A Wealthy Politician Threatens To Tear The Congo ApartThe ancestry of the wealthy son of a Jєωιѕн refugee in the Democratic Republic of Congo has emerged as a flashpoint for a political crisis that is threatening the integrity of the massive African country:
The crisis came to a head last week when lawmakers loyal to President Felix Tshiseked introduced a bill that would restrict the presidency to those with two Congolese parents.
It’s a thinly veiled move against Moise Katumbi, one of Congo’s most popular politicians, whose father was a Greek Jew who fled the h0Ɩ0cαųst in Europe and settled in Congo, where he married a local woman, Katumbi’s mother.
A vote on the bill has not been scheduled, but the measure is already angering Katumbi’s large supporter base and raising fears of a return to political violence in Congo. Rivalries and inter-ethnic hostility have triggered human tragedies on a massive scale in the land of 5.4 million people.
Rabbi Menachem Margolin, chairman of the European Jєωιѕн Association and an ally of Katumbi, condemned the bill, saying it’s “an outrage that in 2021 a person can be disqualified for having a Jєωιѕн parent.”
Complicating matters further is the fact that Katumbi hails from the province of Katanga, a mineral-rich area in the country’s east with a history of ѕєcєѕsισnism that he served as governor. The attempt to block Katumbi’s path to the presidency is rekindling ѕєcєѕsισnist tendencies there.
On Monday, 10 great chiefs — community leaders wielding significant followings, influence and money — threatened to support ѕєcєѕsισn if the bill is passed. The U.N. peacekeeping mission head in Congo, Bintou Keita, in connection with the crisis warned last week against the “dangerous consequences of a divisive debate about nationality,” Reuters reported.
Let’s face it — if Katumbi’s father had been a Christian or Arab instead of a Jew, none of this would be much of a controversy at all.
Congo — or any country, for that matter — should have the right to be ruled over by ethnically Congolese leaders who will be more likely to be loyal to their people.
Should the Congolese people trust Katumbi — after he has already expressed his “warm connection to Judaism and Israel“? Can he serve two masters?
And no doubt it’s just a coincidence that Katumbi represents the part of the Congo with the richest mineral resources — something that Israel has no interest in exploiting, rest assured.
Where Jews or part-Jews have become leaders of non-Jєωιѕн countries, they are often perceived as disloyal — and for good reason — though Jews claim this “disloyalty” charge is just one of many antisemitic “canards”.
Take Nicolas Sarkozy — the former French Prime Minister who is also “part” Salonican Greek Jew — in 2008 on national television, he told the ethnically French natives that they would have to race mix with non-Whites for France to “survive” — yet tells Arabs that their ethnic identity is sacrosanct:
What is the goal? It’s going to be controversial. The goal is to meet the challenge of racial inter-breeding.that faces us in the 21st century. The challenges of racial interbreeding that France has always known. And in meeting the challenge of racial interbreeding, France is faithful to its history….It is not a choice — it’s an obligation. It’s an imperative. We cannot do otherwise. We risk finding ourselves confronted with major problems. We must change, therefore, we will change….We are going to change all at the same time — in business, in administration, in education, in the political parties. And we will obligate ourselves as to the results. If this volunteerism does not work, for our Republic, then the State will move to still more coercive measures.
"In His wisdom," says St. Gregory, "almighty God preferred rather to bring good out of evil than never allow evil to occur."
