In March, Rabbi Marvin Hier honored Pope John Paul II with the Medal of Valor.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center announced today that it would honor the beatification of the late Pope John Paul II.
The center will do so, by by including highlights of his historic friendship and solidarity with the Jewish people. The medal will be exposed as a part of the permanent exhibit of the Center’s renowned Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.
At the behest of Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Pietro Sambi, the Papal Nuncio to the United States received the medal on behalf of the Vatican.
“Pope John Paul II will always have a special place of honor in the hearts of Jews everywhere. In our two private audiences with the Pope, we experienced firsthand the uniqueness of this great man; from the very beginning of his pontificate, the warmth of his interaction– particularly how he engaged in conversation with each of the Holocaust survivors who were members of our delegation,” recalled Rabbi Marvin Hier.
He is the Founder and Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, who along with Larry A. Mizel, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, presented the Medal of Valor posthumously to the late Pontiff.
“We could see as early as 1983, that this Pope would go on to make history. John Paul II will be remembered for charting a new course in the often-troubled relationship between the Church and the Jewish people. He was the first Pope in the 2000-year history of the Church to pray in a synagogue, the first to visit a concentration camp, and the first to recognize the State of Israel,” Rabbi Hier added.
“We want these achievements to be part of the permanent installation of the Museum of Tolerance so that they may be a living testimony to his remarkable life and a source of inspiration for future generations,” Rabbi Hier concluded.

That the Papacy first recognized the sate of Israel in 1994, is nothing but a scandal. No Pope should be given a medal, because He did what the free and independent Christian World did in 1948.
Since the Pope did not recognize Israel before 1994, the Holy See joined an exclusive group of nations like Sudan, Libya, Syria, Iran and Saudi Arabia.
Even Egypt was willing to recognize Israel in 1979.
That the Simon Wiesenthal Center is willing to embrace the Papacy, is a signal that many Jews are willing to compromise.
The Talmud warns about Jesus, who is branded as an enemy missionary who wants to “convert” the Jewish people.
The Pope represent a “Jesus” who do not feel the need for Jews to embrace their Messiah. That is a “Jesus” who certain Jews feel they can enter into a compromise with.
I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am he, you will indeed die in your sins.”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Surely the Papacy is the seat of an anti-Christ. And the Rabbi’s of Simon Wiesenthal Center will be a part of the last fatal deception.
