The Catholic Church, Jean-Marie Le Pen and the British Left?

Cardinal Renato Martino, President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace in the Roman Catholic Church, said to the online newspaper Il Sussidiario on Wednesday, January 7, that the “conditions in Gaza … increasingly resemble a big concentration camp”.

It seems that he is thereby following the ideas of the racist leader of the French far right Jean-Marie Le Pen, who believes that the people of Gaza “is concentrated in what is a real ghetto and concentration camp.”

    I believe it’s the other way around. The cardinal spoke before Le Pen. Anyway, isn’t it what you would call a meeting of minds?

    This ill-becomes a church headed by pope who was a member of the Hitler Youth.

    Need we say more?
