The last few weeks, I’ve been working on my first ever ‘fiction’ novel, working title ‘The Brotherhood’.
That title was inspired by the weird red and white flag that I see flying all over so many of the buildings in Jerusalem:
Me being me, I went to find out who this flag belongs to, and that’s when I learned that there is something controlling huge swathes of Jerusalem called ‘The Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre’.
Before we continue, let’s remind ourselves of where we may have heard about the ‘Church of the Holy Sepulchre’ recently, here on the blog…
Ah, that’s right!
It’s the location that was pinpointed by some of the victims as being the location of the xtian / satanic ritual abuse they were subjected to, as part of the pedophile scandal that erupted across Nachlaot a decade ago – which was quickly quashed and hushed up by Erev Rav Sabbatean-Frankists in both the orthodox and the secular world, here in Israel.
Now I remember.
When the Sanhedria pedophile scandal also erupted a couple of years ago – to be similarly hushed up and quashed by the Jerusalem police – many of the victims also spoke about being abused in tunnels connected to churches, by weird-looking ‘Kings and Queens’ .
You can read more about that part of the story HERE:
When that story first came out, I hadn’t gone back to research what the Nachlaot victims had said about the churches involved.
So, it seemed to me that the likeliest candidate for the ‘tunnel under a church’ was the 150 metre long illegal tunnel the Dormition Abbey had excavated under the King David’s Tomb complex.
We will come back to the Dormition Abbey, and its links to the German Templar community in Israel, another time.
In the meantime, after going through whatever I could find about Nachlaot, I came to realise this:
There is a network of ‘secret tunnels’ criss-crossing the Old City of Jerusalem, that connects many of the churches together that were built, or renovated by the Crusaders.
Many of those tunnels have been there for at least 1,000 years, if not more.
THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.
The illegal tunnel that the Catholic Church recently dug between the Dormition Abbey and the “Beit Yosef” complex – that is being totally covered up and ignored by the Jerusalem City Hall- is just the latest in a long, long line of ‘secret underground tunnels’ in the Old City of Jerusalem, being used by the churches there for all sorts of nefarious things.
And now, let’s return to the ‘Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre’.
On their Wikipedia page HERE, we learn the following:
The Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre or Holy Community of the All-Holy Sepulchre is an Eastern Orthodox monastic fraternity guarding the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and other Christian holy places in the Holy Land, founded in its present form during the British Mandate in Palestine (1920-1948).
Headed by the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, the brotherhood also administers the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, such as metropolitans, archbishops, bishops, archimandrites, hieromonks, hierodeacons, and monks.
We also learn there that:
Jordanian Law No. 227, dated 16 January 1958, regulates the Brotherhood’s government.
I.e., this Brotherhood isn’t under Israeli law.
It’s regulated by Jordanian law.
Ergo, because of the ‘disputed’ and still unsettled legal situation of most of Jerusalem and the rest of the territories captured by the State of Israel in the Six Day War, basically no-one can touch the ‘Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre’, no matter what they do.
Which is really useful for them, as we’re about to find out.
Over on the Britannia website HERE, we learn this about the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, that ‘owns’ the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre:
The Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem embraces several scores of thousands of Arabs in Israel and Jordan.
The patriarch and bishops, however, are all Greek and are drawn from the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre, a body with monasteries in and near the holy places.
This policy has been a cause of tension with the Arab population, from which the local married clergy is recruited.
This sounded kind of strange to me, so I went to see what else I could scrounge up, about these ‘ethnic Greek’ patriarchs and bishops running the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre, etc, in Jerusalem.
With a lot of siyatta di’shmeya, I got to this article, from HERE:
It was written by someone called St Raphael Hawaweeny, apparently some time around 1915 (?)
First, I learned that the ‘Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre’ was set up in the exact same year as the Jesuits – 1534.
The emergence of this Brotherhood in the Orthodox Church is no less strange than the emergence of the Jesuit Brotherhood in the Papal Church.
The stranger thing, however, is the simultaneous establishing of these two Brotherhoods, as well as the ways in which they used to reach their goals.
Just as the Jesuit Brotherhood was established in 1534 at the hands of the Spanish monk Ignatius Loyola, so the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre was established in the same year, .i.e, 1534, at the hands of the Monk Germanus the Peloponnesian.
Personally, I stopped believing in CO-IN-CID-ENCES like this a long time ago.
I don’t know how the Jesuits and the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre are linked, but it seems clear that the same shadowy figures ‘behind the scenes’ arranged for both of them to get going, at exactly the same time.
The next thing I learned, is that this ‘Brotherhood’ is entirely made up of ethnic Greeks, who have no connection whatsoever to the Arab ‘orthodox christians’ of Jerusalem they are meant to be serving.
And they have just been passing the rulership of the Orthodox Greek Patriarchy between their extended family members, for the last 500 years.
But it’s when I started reading about the moral and spiritual corruption that’s been going on with these ‘monks of Jerusalem’, that the penny really started to drop.
Here’s some eye-opening snippets from St Raphael Hawaweeny, writing 100 years ago:
Truly, the pen resists writing down all the machinations and deeds of the monks of Jerusalem, bloodcurdling even to the atheists!
And so we will overlook many outrages, out of respect for the Priesthood….
But in order to let the reader think that we are not attributing to them things of which they are innocent, we will point out a Greek booklet written by the Greek writer N.I. Th (printed in Constantinople in 1873) under the title, “The Patriarchal Palace is the Shame of Jerusalem.”
In this book he demonstrated the life and deeds of some members of the Holy Sepulchre, such as Patriarch Athanasius–mentor of the late Patriarch Irotheos–and his successor, Cyril, and other monks and nuns who deeds surpassed the squalor of Babylon and the abominable acts of old Rome.
Among others things mentioned in this booklet, the author states: “There was a custom in Jerusalem that each monk had one or two nuns, or even three, in accordance with his rank and financial situation.”
[H]ave the morals of the monks of Jerusalem changed in our days?
Unfortunately not. Rather their abominations have increased!
This is what the skilled writer Michael Slaviov states in his book cited earlier:
“The existence of beautiful and attractive nuns near the clergy of Jerusalem and all the Jerusalemite monks is nothing out of the ordinary.
You can see that these nuns live publicly in the monasteries of monks. The numerous nephews of the bishops and monks of Jerusalem, who are in fact their real children as everyone knows, are the primary source for leadership in the Church of Jerusalem.
It’s probably safe to say that few readers of this blog are falling off their chair reading that the monks, bishops and nuns of the ‘Church of Jerusalem’ are basically hypocritical, amoral scumbags.
But it’s the next snippet that I want you to pay particularly attention to:
Out of respect and honour to our esteemed readers I will remain silent about the most horrible act in the life of the monks of Jerusalem, i.e., pedophilia.
If anyone doubts the truthfulness of our statement, let him read the above-mentioned Greek booklet, or the letter of an honoured Maronite sent from Jerusalem to the Jesuits in Beirut which was printed in their “Good News” in 1887.
Knowing just few of the many things about the religious and moral conditions of the monks of Jerusalem, bloodcurdling even to the atheists of our age, we shall hit the nail on the head by saying: “This is the desolating sacrilege in the Holy Place.”
Even 100+ years ago, xtian writers were publically bemoaning that ‘The Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre’ was engaged in all manner of disgusting perversions, including pedophila.
And let’s just remind ourselves, again, which places in the Old City is this group in charge of?
Ah yes, I remember now: The Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
That same place that so many of the victims of the Nachlaot pedophile ring identified as one of the places they had been ritually abused, by ‘Kings and Queens’ conducting xtian-themed orgies with small Jewish children.
Isn’t that a CO-IN-CID-ENCE?
OK, so now let’s dig a little deeper into this steaming pile of information.
Let’s see if we can get more of an answer is to why the State of Israel has been routinely covering up the awful, massive pedophile ring involving churches in Jerusalem, for at least 15 years now – and probably way, way longer.
On the ‘Orthodox Wiki’ page for the ‘Church of Jerusalem’, we learn this:
The Church of Jerusalem remains the custodian of many of the holy sites in Jerusalem and environs, sometimes jointly with Roman Catholic or Coptic or Armenian Christians, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.
This is just so that you’re clear that CHURCH OF JERUSALEM = GREEK ORTHODOX PATRIARCHATE OF JERUSALEM = BROTHERHOOD OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE.
Then, we start to learn some more very interesting information:
Following the deposition of Patriarch Irenaios I amidst scandals regarding the transfer of land to Jewish control, the Holy Synod of the church named as their temporary primate His Eminence Metropolitan Cornelius (Rodousakis) of Petra.
If we go to the Orthodox Wiki page for Irenaios I HERE, we get more details of the story:
[A] few years into Irenaios’s patriarchate, he became embroiled in bitter controversy.
Several parcels of church-owned land in the Old City of Jerusalem were sold to Israeli developers.
As most of the Orthodox Christians in the region are Palestinian, and the land was in a Arab-populated area that most Palestinians hoped would become as a part of a future Palestinian capital, this caused a great deal of outrage among Church members.
On May 5, 2005, most of the Holy Synod of Jerusalem announced in a letter they had broken relations with Patr. Irenaios, and regarded him as dismissed as Patriarch of Jerusalem….
On January 6, 2011, the Associated Press released an article claiming that Irenaios refused to recognize the deposition, considered himself the legitimate Patriarch, and that he has been under house arrest for years.
First, let’s figure out which Israelis bought that land in the Old City.
According to THIS article, it was the Ateret Cohanim organisation.
In 2005, an Israeli newspaper reported on a secret deal struck the year before by the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate — the church leadership — to sell the hotels to Ateret Cohanim, a Jewish settler group that aims to buy up Palestinian-owned properties in strategic locations in Jerusalem to increase Jewish control in the contested city.
If you go to the Wayback machine HERE, you get the full story from the AP Newswire about what happened to Irenaios – now otherwise scrubbed off the internet.
Associated Press= JERUSALEM (AP) — Six years ago, Irineos I was the patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem with about 100,000 followers. Today, he sits behind locked doors in his Old City apartment, claiming he has been imprisoned by the successor who ousted him in a dispute over sale of church land to Israelis….
Irineos said his successor, Theofilos III, will not allow attorneys, doctors or visitors to enter the home he has lived in for almost 40 years, which sits inside a large church-owned complex. He said he’s been detained for three years over his refusal to concede the patriarchate.
Theofilos replaced Irineos in 2005 after allegations he sold church property to Israelis seeking to expand the Jewish presence in east Jerusalem, which Palestinians claim for the capital of a future state.
Let’s learn a little bit more about this ‘Theofilos III’, current head of the ‘Church of Jerusalem’ / Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre / Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jersualem.
This snippet comes from his Ortho Wiki page, HERE:
Patriarch Theophilus, a native of the Peloponnese in Greece, is a cousin of former US CIA director George Tenet and also has met with American Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Theophilus studied theology at the University in Athens and went on to complete a master’s degree in London.
Hey, would you look at that!!!
The guy is close mishpocha of George Tenet.
You know, that George Tenet who armed the Palestinians and pushed to create a Palestinian State as part of his horrible ‘Tenet Plan’ back in 2001.
HERE‘s some of the clauses of that agreement, that the State of Israel ALREADY AGREED TO AND ARE STILL ON OUR LAW BOOKS, since 2001:
- Israel will not conduct attacks of any kind against the Palestinian Authority Ra’is facilities: the headquarters of Palestinian security, intelligence, and police organization; or prisons in the West Bank and Gaza.
- The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) will adopt additional non-lethal measures to deal with Palestinian crowds and demonstrators, and more generally, seek to minimize the danger to lives and property of Palestinian civilians in responding to violence.
Now, we’re really starting to understand a whole lot more, aren’t we?
About who is really ‘controlling’ the State of Israel, regardless of who sits in the PM’s chair.
As director of the CIA, we also have a direct link to all the CIA’s horrible ‘mind control’ experiments involving systematic and horrific abuse of young children, that are broadly known as ‘MK ULTRA’ / ‘MK MONARCH’.
Here’s a snippet from Wikiwand, HERE:
MKUltra used numerous methods to manipulate its subjects’ mental states and brain functions, such as the covert administration of high doses of psychoactive drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, electroshocks, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, and verbal and sexual abuse, in addition to other forms of torture.
If you read the testimonies of the horrific abuse the children from Nachlaot and then later Sanhedria and Ramot Eshkol went through, you start to see A LOT of similarities with the paragraph above.
Here is that guy moaning about how the Israeli Government is trying to pass a law that means Church land could be dealt with properly by the State, instead of operating as a ‘country within a country’, as it currently does:
Last thing for now.
Back in 2017, this exact same Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem / Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre was back in the headlines again, over land sales in Israel.
The following snippets come from HERE:
Theophilos is now on the defensive. News first broke this summer about additional land deals, which he personally approved….
Many of the deals in question are of lands that the church leased in the 1950s to institutions affiliated with the Israeli government, like the Jewish National Fund, a century-old nonprofit dedicated to obtaining land and developing Jewish communities in Israel.
The church sold lands in the upscale beachside cities of Caesarea and Jaffa to companies registered in the Caribbean. In other deals, Israeli investors purchased large tracts of land in the most luxurious neighborhoods of West Jerusalem. When the long-term lease on the land expires in a few decades, these companies will decide the fate of the apartments on those lands.
Wouldn’t we all love to know, which ‘Israeli investors’ did these deals of a lifetime to buy land from the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre?
Again, here’s the problem, in a nutshell:
The Greek Orthodox Church calls itself the second-largest landowner in Israel, after the Israeli government.
It says it owns some 30 percent of Jerusalem’s walled Old City, the city’s historic core, and controls the largest stake of any Christian denomination in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, home to the traditional tomb of Jesus. It also owns lands throughout Jerusalem, Israel and the West Bank.
These are the same guys running the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, linked to the pedo rings that abused Jewish children in Nachlaot and Sanhedria, that the Jerusalem police is refusing to investigate properly.
These are the same guys with a long, long, history of amorality and pedophilia, happening in their churches and properties in the Old City – even documented by xtian writers back in the 1800s….
These are the same guys whose patriarch is a COUSIN of former CIA director and ‘MK Ultra-pusher’ George Tenant.
That same George Tenant who pushed laws onto the books in Israel that make it illegal for Israel’s army to conduct any ‘attacks’ on Palestinian police / intelligence HQs in the West Bank, and also made it almost impossible for Israel to use ‘lethal force’ against suspected Palestinian terrorists.
Hel-lo, Elor Azaria!
I’d love to know who bought that land from the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre.
I have the vague memory of it being a Shas politician….
I’d love to know what government position that Shas politician held at the time all this was happening.
I.e. – EXACTLY THE SAME TIME AS THE POLICE WAS MEANT TO BE INVESTIGATING THE PEDO RING ATTACKING JEWISH CHILDREN IN SANHEDRIA.
Before they closed the case and arrested precisely no-one.
HERE is a bit more information about some of the people who bought that Church land in 2017:
Leases for more than 700 dunams (173 acres) in upscale coastal Caesarea, which today include parts of a national park, may not run out until after 2200 as they were signed in the 1970s for 135 years, with an option to renew for another 100 years.
It was recently revealed that this land was sold in 2015 for $1 million to Saint Ventures, a company registered on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent.
A similar arrangement was in place for a smaller plot, of around 1.5 acres around Jaffa’s clock tower, which was sold in 2013 for around $1.8 million to another Caribbean-registered company, Bona Trading.
St. Ventures and Bona Trading are both understood to involve a partnership between a Ukrainian businessman, well known to the patriarch, and a Jewish businessman from the UK.
