Pope Benedict is Jewish, says Muslim expert

 

Muhammad Galaa Idris, head  of the Hebrew Studies Department at Tanta University in Egypt, has claimed that Pope Benedict XVI is either Jewish or has been “Judaized.” The Egyptian academic said this in an interview in January 2012 with Al-Rahma TV, according to footage recorded and translated by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute. “The current pope Benedict IV or VII or whatever is even more Zionist then Herzl,” said Idris, adding  “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. " He is more Zionist than the Zionists themselves," Idris is heard to say.
 
When asked by the host to provide examples of the pope’s Zionism, Idris 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.” Idris provided a reviewed of the "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” - an anti-Semitic fiction widely recognized as a fraud perpetrated by the government of Czar Nicholas II yet widely cited ever since - for the same channel, portraying its false assertions as fact.
