The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Pope Paul VI Ran The Nazi Ratline

                                                                                             by Barry Chamish

The Vatican just called a gathering of church higher-ups to approve the promotion of
Pope Paul the Sixth to sainthood. Of course, he had to do something miraculous to earn the title, and

a cockamamie crock was found to fit the bill. Apparently, before he died a pregnant woman sought his undivided wisdom in a worldly dilemma. Her fetus was found to be defective and her baby would be born severely retarded. Her doctors recommended an abortion and thus she sought papal advice. Since the church is opposed to all abortion no matter what the circumstances, he told her to have the child. And miracle of saintly miracles, she had the baby and today he is a mentally unchallenged teenager.
          And for that you get to be Saint Paul? How many mothers got the same advice, took it, and gave birth to much more unhappy stories? For whatever reasons I don't comprehend, whether 
philosophical or personal, the Vatican's bishops are deeply divided over uplifting Paul to sainthood.
         So who better to provide answers was chief counsel of the Holocaust Victims Group, suing the Vatican for compensation, Dr. Jonathan Levy? What he told me was a far more disturbing reason for the schism than being reported. We all know of the Papal-Nazi history beginning with war pope Pius and I had hoped ending with Pope Benedict who enjoyed Hitler Youth so much, he volunteered for the Wermacht. Being a Nazi was no impediment to a papal post. It was practically a qualification.
         Then why is the Vatican covering up one little known historical fact about Pope Paul the 6th. He was in charge of the Vatican ratlines which saved the lives of tens of thousands of middle to upper ranking Nazis after the war. After speaking with Dr. Levy by phone, I had him on my radio show. You MUST hear what he reveals. You have only a week to hear us at:              

         Here is the thrust of  Dr. Levy's allegations:                               

Pope Paul VI Beatification Overshadowed by Involvement in Nazi Ratline
Rome: On October 19, 2014, Paul VI (Monsignor Montini) in a solemn ceremony at the Vatican is to be beatified which is the first step to sainthood  A miracle, the curing of an unborn baby’s illness, has been attributed to Paul VI.  However, Holocaust Victims and their families from Eastern Europe who are locked in a decade’s long legal dispute with the Vatican over looted assets from the Second World War, question the saintliness of the man who as Vatican Secretary of State supervised the infamous Vatican ratline funded with Holocaust era loot.
The Vatican Ratline was a post war system of escape routes for Nazis fleeing Europe at the end of the Second World War. The Vatican version was centered at the Croatian Confraternity of Saint Jerome located in Rome at Via Tomacelli 132 just a block away from the Tiber River bridge and next to the sprawling Tomb of Augustus.  
The so called “Golden Priest” Fr. Krunoslav Draganovic, the Apostolic Vistator for Croatian matters, was the chief conductor of the Vatican ratline whose beneficiaries included major war criminals like Croatian mass murderer Ante Pavelic who escaped to Argentina in 1947 despite being responsible for the deaths of 500,000 Serbs, Jews, and Roma. Other ratline escapees included the Nazi war criminals Klaus Barbie, Josef Mengele and AdolfEichman.

The funds that ran the Vatican ratline were obtained from the treasuries of defeated Axis allies like Croatia, Hungary, and Romania and often contained victim loot transformed into Church property through a complex scheme involving deposits at the Vatican Bank. Since 1998, the Holocaust victims have been seeking an accounting from the Vatican which has so far successfully resisted on grounds of sovereign immunity a long running lawsuit in the United States, a more recent EU Commission inquiry and direct claims lodged with the Vatican Secretariat for the Economy.
Declassified documents obtained by Holocaust Victims’ attorneys link Paul VI, then Vatican Secretary of State, to Draganovic and Pavelic. Former US Special Agent, William Gowen, who investigated the Vatican ratline in Rome 1946-1947, testified that Draganovic was supervised by Montini and that Draganovic boasted of a clandestine ten truck convoy of looted gold and valuables that pulled into St. Peter’s Square in 1946 right under the nose of the Allied authorities. The Holocaust Victim group is seeking an accounting and restitution of the looted assets used to fund the ratline.  
The Holocaust Victims’ lawyers have now released the transcripts of the entire Gowen deposition in hopes of bringing attention to the case. According to lead counsel, Dr. Jonathan Levy: “The real miracle is how the Vatican made countless millions in victim loot and major Nazi war criminals disappear with apparent impunity.  The Vatican must open its archives once for all.”
William Gowen who as a young Army CIC Special Agent fluent in Italian infiltrated the ratline and almost captured Pavelic at San Girolamo in 1947, endured four days of cross examination by Vatican attorneys in 2005 and 2006 and never wavered from his position.  The deposition in its entirety is now available.
