Cath. Abp. Makes Anti-Jewish Remarks in Sermon; Trinidad Abp.: "Jews Only Care about Their Own"

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency website reports today (October 28, 2011) that a Catholic Archbishop in Trinidad and Tobago made anti-Jewish remarks during a sermon on October 24.

Edward Gilbert -- the leader of the Catholic Church in the Port of Spain -- compared politicians in the southern Caribbean republic to Jews, who he said only care about their own.

"The Jews were compassionate and caring for their own, they were compassionate and caring to the people of their nation, to the people of their race, to the people of their ethnic communities," Gilbert said during a Jubilee Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church in San Fernando, Trinidad.

With regard to Gilbert's remarks, U.S. Anti-Defamation League (ADL) National Director Abraham Foxman said, "The false notion that Jews only care about themselves and don't care enough about others is one of the major pillars of classical anti-Semitism."
