No plan to give Vatican control of site of the Last Supper

  • Israel’s deputy foreign minister has denied reports that his government is prepared to recognize the Vatican’s claim to ownership of the building that houses the site of the Last Supper. The same building in Jerusalem is revered by Jews as the site of King David’s tomb.

    Deputy foreign minister Zeev Elkin, who has been actively involved with negotiations over a long-awaited pact with the Holy See, told lawmakers that there has been no discussion of ceding ownership of the building to the Catholic Church. He added that rumors of an exchange—with the Vatican relinquishing other properties in exchange for control of the building on Mount Zion—were inaccurate.

    The Israeli government has engaged in discussions with the Vatican about ensuring access for Christian pilgrims to the upper room, known as the Cenacle, where the Last Supper occurred, Elkin said. After an agreement was reached, he said, no further discussions on the topic took place, he said. "Every detail regarding the Last Supper room was agreed upon in coordination with the Ministry of the Interior, and since then the subject has not been opened for discussion with the Vatican,” Elkin said.

    Could it be that they will just take the "other properties" for their own purposes?

  • Come along, Poche, don't be dense.

    Sanhedrin 43a. Jesus was executed because he practiced sorcery.

    Gittin 57a. Jesus is boiling in "hot excrement."

    Sanhedrin 43a. On the eve of the Passover, Yeshu [i.e., Jesus. Spelling His name as "Yeshu" means "May His Name Be Blotted Out"] was hanged.Do you suppose that he was one for whom a defense could be made? Was he not an enticer (Mesith)?"

    Sanhedrin 106a. Jesus' mother was a whore: "She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters."

    Footnote to Shabbath 104b. Jesus' mother, "Miriam the hairdresser," had sex with many men.

    This is appalling blasphemy, but, if you read up (The Plot Against the Church is very good) its not especially surprising. Gottmitunsalex has the quote I want and I have forgotten - something like, the Jews refuse to recognise Christ, therefore we cannot recognise the Jewish people - the idea the Pope should be haggling with a gang of rabbis disgusts me, as the Jews have no more right to the Holy Land than the Zulus do to Clapham.
    Old-fashioned is good, modern is suicidal.
