THE POPE WOULD BENEFIT SEEING AMERICAN CAPITALISM

By Rabbi Aryeh Spero

Last week Congressman Paul Ryan welcomed Pope Francis’ reported criticism of capitalism as “triggering the exact dialogue we should be having.” So, let’s begin.

Unlike theologic abstractions that remain fixed irrespective of geography, the understanding of monetary issues is often colored and dependent on, even for a Pontiff, the economic and business life manifest in the particular location in which that observer was raised.

The laissez-faire economic paradigm of Latin and South America witnessed by Francis was rooted in colonialism and later in a state/business alliance for the benefit of particular families, and remains worlds apart from the moral capitalism developed here in the U.S. under the unique influence of our Judeo-Christian ethos. 

OBAMA DOCTRINE OF 2009 RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT IS HAPPENING IN IRAQ

The debate over the attack against Iraq by ISIL seems to
revolve around our specific Iraq policy of the last ten years. Republicans
argue that President Obama’s abrupt and complete departure from Iraq left that
country unprepared to fend off impending invasions from Al-Qaida-linked
terrorists, while Democrats continue to blame any and all outcomes on George
Bush who led the war to remove Saddam Hussein.



Too many, I fear, are missing the real point. Had we never
attacked Iraq back in 2004 and even if Saddam Hussein was today still in power,
this attack against Iraq, the attempt by Islamists to take over that country,
would still be happening. Consider for a moment: ISIL has attacked Syria and
its leader, Bashar al-Assad, even though no war or leadership vacancy was
caused by America in Syria.  Further, ISIL
Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood, both Caliphate-shariah enterprises, have
tried to remove leaders in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and other countries in the
region. Whatever the particular name of the group, be it an Al Qaida variant or
a Muslim Brotherhood backed group, the intent has been to remove leaders who
are not considered part of the Islamist movement.
