Our sages of blessed memory associate Edom with the מלכוח הרעשה (the evil kingdom) which is identified as Rome. In the times of our sages there was no confusion as to the identity of this evil kingdom as Rome was the seat of power of the Roman empire which had conquered Jerusalem, destroyed the Temple, murdered Jews in their millions, enslaved many others and sent the inhabitants of Judea into exile. Thus began this long and bitter exile which the Jewish people have been enduring for almost 2,000 years.

Today however Rome is the seat of power of two very different governments who are related by a very complex relationship. There is the democratically elected government of the Italian Republic which has a history of only 77 years (1946-present). It is the successor of the Kingdom of Italy which began in 1861 and was dissolved in 1946 due to a referendum where a narrow majority won the vote to depose the king expressing their disapproval of the decision to join the allies against the axis powers. The Kingdom of Italy was ruled by the house of Savoy. The current prime minister of the Italian Republic is Giorgia Meloni.

The second government in Rome is the so called Holy See which has a dictatorial leader in the person of the Pope who is appointed by a small number of cardinals and usually serves until death as there is no mechanism to remove a sitting Pope once he has been appointed. Unlike the government of the Italian Republic the so called Holy See is ancient. The Edict of Milan 313 by Roman emperor Constantine the Great recognised the legal status of the Catholic Church and its property. The Edict of Thessalonica in 380 by Emperor Theodosius I made the Catholic Church the state church of the Roman Empire. Thus began the takeover from within of the Roman Empire. The current emperor is the Argentinian born Jorge Mario Bergoglio also known as Pope Francis. He derives his power from his base of more than 1.378 billion Catholics worlwide who regard him as their spiritual leader.

In 1929 the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini representing the Kingdom of Italy signed the Lateran Treaty which granted the so called Holy See sovereignty over Vatican City, a territory of 0.49 km2 in the heart of Rome. This treaty forms the legal basis enabling the so called Holy See to enter into diplomatic relations with 183 sovereign states worldwide and to hold permanent observer status at the United Nations. Just why a religion whose central tenet is to preach about a kingdom not of this world needs all this power and infuence on the world stage is unclear but what is clear is that the political activities of the so called Holy See for the last 2,000 years have had disastrous consequences for the Jewish people.

Since at least the times of John Chrysostom (347-407), author of Against the Jews, the propaganda machine of the so called Holy See has been propagating antisemitic rhetoric which has led to the brutal murder of literally millions of Jews throughout the ages. The murder of Jews during the crusades, the Inquisition, the expulsion of Jews from Spain and Portugal and the Holocaust are but a few examples of the results of the political machinations of the so called Holy See and the antisemitic rhetoric it has been the source of.

Perhaps the worst example of the effects of the political machinations of the so called Holy See is the story of the legacy left behind by the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. After winning a landslide victory for his national socialist party in 1933 Hitler was not satisfied and sought to gain dictatorial powers. To secure these powers Hitler needed a two thirds majority vote in the Reichstag. He needed the Catholic Centre Party to cooperate in order to gain this majority. Cardinal Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli ensured the cooperation of the Centre Party in exchange for the signing of the Reichskonkordat, a formal treaty between the so called Holy See and the German Reich. The price of this treaty was the lives of more than 6 million innocent Jews.

On 2 March 1939 Eugenio Pacelli became Pope. On 1 September the Nazi dictator he installed invaded Poland thus beginning his quest to exterminate every Jew on the planet. Because of Vatican secrecy policies regarding communications of Pacelli during his potificate it is unclear if he actively supported these plans. What is clear is that he was unwilling to offer any public condemnations of the activities of the Nazis during World War II.

In order to prevent further future atrocities Moshiim LLC will be working to dismantle the legacies left behind by the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini and the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Specifically our goals are to nullify the Lateran treaty, the Reichskonkordat and eject the so called Holy See from its seat at the United Nations. The most important of these goals is the nullification of the Lateran Treaty. When the Italian Republic revokes the Lateran treaty and reclaims sovereignty over Vatican City there will no longer be a legal basis for maintaining diplomatic relations with 183 sovereign states and the so called Holy See can start acting like a religion rather than a country with a geopolitical agenda.

The good news is that in 1984 in a sign of weakness the so called Holy See accepted a number of concessions in a renegotiated revised Lateran treaty. No concessions were adopted by the Italian Republic. There therefore exists the very real possibility that the forces within Italian society that forced the so called Holy See to accept the concessions of 1984 can be reinvigorated and force the complete revocation of the Lateran treaty making the Italian Republic once again sovereign over its territory as once hard earned by Garibaldi and his men.
