documenting 9-11 DECODED, about the TREASON / terror attacks against New York, against Washington, against the American flying public, and against the entire American nation on that awful, infamous day 14 years ago, September 11th, 2001.
The "WAR ON TERROR"
- or 'gwot' - "global war against terrorism" -
is a JEWISH RUN INQUISITIONthat was planned and put in motion _long before_ the terror attacks
of 9-11 2001 went down.
|This clever image captures the true horror of the "War on Terror" -NETANYAHU = ISIS TERRORISM !|
that is, the JEWISH STATE
(israel & its P.M., "king bibi" Netanyahu)
CONTROLS BOTH SIDES
of the evil "GLOBAL TERRORISM" WAR -
They - the Jewish war lobby, the Israel and "American" Jews -
CONTROL the ISIS TERRORISTS in Syria,
in Libya, in Egypt, Lebanon, & in Iraq
via the Jews SAUDI, KUWAIT, QATARI (et al)
JUNIOR PARTNERS in global, mega- OIL FINANCE...
JUNIOR PARTNERS in global, mega- OIL FINANCE...
_and_ they CONTROL the AMERICAN,
"U.S." government "WAR ON TERROR"
as well, via their BRIBED, BLACKMAILED, EXTORTED, & bought of SENATORS ,
Con-gress Critters, presidents, and other elected and non-elected officials
As our below "Inquisition" article explains,
the PURPOSE of all this _is_ MURDER!
The TERRORIZING and DESTRUCTION of _millions_ of people
IS THE INTENT!
just exactly as the JEW COMMISSARS did in the RED TERROR, 'Communist revolution/civil-war, and DEATH-CAMP GULAGS ruled "Soviet Union"
RESISTANCE to the Catholic Church's TERROR & ATROCITIES
of the INQUISITION was the main cause of the Protestant Reformation...
and of the bloody and horrific RELIGIOUS and CIVIL WAR that ensued.
JEWS CELEBRATE SIMILAR bloody, murderous massacres:
- their PURIM celebration celebrates the MASSACRES of over 75,000 people!
- they exult in the bloody, alleged conquest of Jericho and the Canaan Valley
(the bloody core of the Jews' "promised land" MYTH)
- and even their seemingly benign "HANUKAH" festival _actually_ CELEBRATES
the MASSACRES of not only the 'Helenic' Greek soldiers who had been ruling the region...
...but the MASSACRES and enslavement of ANYONE not part of the Judeo revolt
who was captured after the Greek army was defeated.
In fact the 9-11 terror attacks were only the second and more visible part(s) of
a bloody and OVERT 'Neo-Con' JUDEO SUPREMACIST
"commissariat" HIJACKING of America,
with the stolen election of 2000 putting top "DUAL CITIZEN" ISRAELI-(american) officials in to the highest positions in the entire U.S. government in the Bush-Cheney-WOLFOWITZ-LIBBY administration...
where they could diffuse, derail, and destroy _any_ opposition
to their treacherous 'Neo-Con' agenda, by a well-coordinated campaign that involved government officials, entire government agencies, and the jewish dominated corporate-press media and academia SMEARING _ANYONE_ who dared asked legitimate questions about the 9-11 attacks
as "conspiracy theorists."
Before we start getting down to the nuts-and-bolts of the 9-11 TREASON / terror attacks,
we'll first highlight some of the historical and philosophical forces that contributed
to the formulation and implementation of this huge, murderous, and sinister conspiracy.
Hopefully, this first post in our "9-11 DECODED" series will be a simple one!
We will simply point out that JUDAISM is today, under its many guises:
- the Jewish controlled "Federal Reserve," ECB, Bank of England" and other privately owned "central banks";
- the Jewish controlled "American," British (Canadian, Australian, & etc. ) and European corporate media;
- and of course the overtly Jewish supported and Israel directed lobby groups like AIAPC, ADL, JCC, and AJC that are all are HUGELY POWERFUL FORCES in America,
organizations with aims that are NOT always
synonymous with what is good for America or for Americans;
a powerful political, financial, social, media, cultural, and religious force
- often exerted by FOREIGN agents -that simultaneously brags and gloats about its influence....
while criticizing any inspection much less criticism of that influence as "anti-Semitic"!
WITH RIGHTS COME RESPONSIBILITIES,
and for Jews to claim that THEY have "the right to freedom of religion" -
- while simultaenously trying to IMPOSE their "chosen,"
"right to own slaves" and "greater israel" racist,
bronze-age ideology and intolerant, homicidal theology on America and the world,
is hypocritical, murderous, & treacherous in the extreme!
- a practicing (and intellectually courageous) Catholic!
THAT was easy!
Despite knowing that there are dozens of JEWISH RUN COMMUNITY, activist,
and lobby groups in America - spearheaded by AIPAC, ADL, JCC, and AJC,
when we went to find a list of some of these groups,
we were directed by google to a wiki page that was part of their...
JEWS - who, in their fundamentalist and orthodox practices
BELIEVE THEY are _ALWAYS_ A NATION _within_ a nation
(a separate and ultimately "sovereign nation" loyal _only to g-o-d"; living among
any other HOST NATION they may dwell among on only a temporary or non-permanent basis)
feel they have the right to organize as many lobbyist, activist, and (exclusively!)
JEWISH community groups as their numbers and social standing can command...
but if we Americans wish to inquire about the power & influence
of those groups on OUR politics and OUR politicians...
why, WE are being "anti-Semitic"!
The JEWISH LOBBY
= INQUISITION BULLIES !!
= INQUISITION BULLIES !!
Merely to ask about the influence of Jewish community groups in America...
much less to inquire about the well orchestrated, well funded,
and FOREIGNER CONTROLLED ISRAEL LOBBY in America -
- is to be 'ANTI-semitic' ?!!!
|INQUISITION BULLIES: |
Merely to ask about the influence of Jewish community groups in America...
much less to inquire about the well orchestrated, well funded, and

But EVERY ONE of these RACIST, hyper- HYPOCRITICE jewish groups
are ZIO-NAZIS: masking their _support_ for RACISM, APARTHEID,
and not only VIOLENT SEGREGATION in israhell... but advocating
GENOCIDAL "ETHNIC CLEANSING" of _everyone_
in _the_vicinity_ of the infernal jew state to make way for "Greater Israel"
as their entire religious & cultural upbringing directs them to !!!
|racist, segregationist, violent apartheid-in-Israel supporting N.Y. jew hypocrites...these racist hypocrite scum here |
SHED CROCODILE TEARS _pretending_ they are concerned with the plight of BLACK Americans...
actually as a means of IMPOSING the DHS,
JEW NAZI/COMMISSARS run REIGN OF TERROR on Americans.
EVERY DIME spent on foreign wars and defrauded by jew financier perps
STEALS from America's minority, working-class, and Black communities...
Jewish pseudo "support" for Black Americans
is actually part of their well coded INQUISITION against not only "White Americans"
(accused - by these racist jews! - of "racism" against Black Americans!)
but against _all_ Americans -
this is JEWISH COMMUNITY expressing SUPPORT
for the JEWISH COMMISSARS run "war on terror" & DHS -
_masquerading_ as jewish support for Black civil rights!
Just exactly as Jewish community groups in America EXPRESSED SUPPORT for the COMMISSARS REIGN OF TERROR in "atheist" and pretend "for the workers"
but actually racist JUDEO Commissars RUN 'Communist' Russia/"the Soviet Union"!
If these demon jews DON'T SUPPORT CIVIL RIGHTS for "white" Americans,
they can't possibly support civil rights for Black Americans!!
In fact, these FUNDAMENTALIST JEWS HATE _EVERYONE_ not part of their little demon "chosen" cabal
- and if they ever did succeed in exterminating, extirpating, and eliminating
_all_ non-jews from planet earth.. they would immediately start KILLING EACH OTHER,
as King David's sons were so quick to kill each other, and as the "great" king David was himself DRIVEN OUT of Jerusalem in disgrace by his OWN (jewish) people -
- who HATED & DESPISED him for his tyranny!
America's infernal, treacherous JEWISH RABBIS
_SUPPORTED_ the MURDERS of 50,000
Black Africans _MASSACRED_ in Libyaduring and after the ISIS = al Qaeda TERRORISTS took over that brutalized nation...
under a hail of MURDEROUS, Jew war lobby directed NATO bombs!
But these same vile, evil New York Jews
SHED CROCODILE TEARS for Blacks here in America!
THEY ARE TRAITOROUS, LYING, MURDEROUS, hypocrite, GENOCIDAL SCUM
who HATE everyone around them...
exactly as their bible, their evil Talmud, and their lifetime "Chosen ones" religious INDOCTRINATION and training instructs them to....
...just exactly as the Dominicans and other Church officials were REWARDED for being SADISTIC MASS-MURDERERS
by promotions & power in the Catholic Inquisition
for over 1,000 years...
The CORE of the JEWS' "CHOSEN" identity:
ABRAHAM sends his concubine and his own son by her (Ishmael)
to DIE in the desert... in his RACIST PREFERENCE
for his other, younger son Isaac.
According to this horrible bible story, "g-o-d" hears Hagar's crying... and saves her and her son from certain death in the desert. Nevertheless,
JEWS LOOK AT THIS STORY as
the CORE of THEIR "CHOSENNESS" -
the CORE of THEIR "CHOSENNESS" -
their alleged "superiority" over all other peoples; and they are instructed throughout their lives to "to be like Abraham" - WILLING TO KILL THEIR OWN CHILD
- much less other people's children! -in order to save the "racial purity" and primacy of
"g-o-d's CHOSEN RACE"...
Jews regard this passage -14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba. 15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. 16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of
the[my] child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.
a man condemning his own son to DEATH
in the desert for purely RACIST reasons -
as INSTRUCTIONS for how they
should treat _all_ NON-JEWS...!
Like Jewish priests, prophets, kings, and later rabbis who came before them,
officials of the Catholic ('Catholic' merely means "Universal") Christian church
were all about WRITING RULES...
and ENFORCING THEM ruthlessly,
claiming the power of g-o-d to punish, seize property from, or execute _anyone_
brought to the attention of those Church officials... for any reason _they_ deemed sufficient.
This MURDEROUS ENFORCEMENT of religious, theocratic rules was essentially
AN ON-GOING PURGE...
with powerful church officials getting away with the exact same 'crimes' that 'lesser people'
were tortured, humiliated, dispossessed, disinherited, terrorized, & EXECUTED for.
According to Jews, Christians, _and_ intolerant Muslims,
the "g-o-d" of their "holy book(s)"
is a BUTCHER G-O-D,
is a BUTCHER G-O-D,
who eliminates "his" human creation "mistakes" and "errors" by BRUTAL MEANS:
by stoning, by beating to death with clubs, by hacking with swords, by burning, or by other even more sadistic & imaginative forms of torture, brutal executions, or deaths in war, fighting, and trauma inflicted "at god's direction" by brutal enforcers - by warriors or church officials or government appartchiks - of "god's will".
The notion of a powerful and infinite "CREATOR G-O-D"
- powerful enough to "CREATE THE UNIVERSE" but who also COMMANDS
the serial and repeated cold-blooded, violent, and brutal KILLINGS of CHILDREN in large numbers
should be repugnant to all rational and sane humans...
but this notion is precisely the foundation
of the "NOAHIDE" or Abrahamic based "faiths"
A quick glance at the below description of the horrors of the French, Spanish, Roman & other Catholic INQUISITIONS reveal that
these are PRECISELY the POWERS(to massacre, torture, and murder)
COVETED by treacherous, treasonous, sadistic, and scheming "FIRST LOYALTY to a FOREIGN POWER" officials in the "United States" government...
...and that long before the CATHOLIC CHURCH arose,
...JEWISH OFFICIALS wrote the Hebrew bible to CODIFY and INSTITUTIONALIZE all those horrific powers - see the infamous bible story of Moses instructing his brother Aaron and Aaron's sons to "strap on their swords" and MASSACRE the very people who had been prancing around the Golden Calf...
EXODUS ch. 32 [not their cowardly, vacillating, back-stabbing, hypocrite, idol-worshipping 'leaders'!!]
the bible oily glossing-over the fact that
the treacherous, cowardly, backstabbing Aaron and his sons HAD BUILT the golden calf and LED the Hebrew exiles in worship around it,
after Moses went missing on his climb of Mt. Sinai...
In that infamous passage we see
the bible SPECIFICALLY ENCODES the MASSACRES, MURDERS, torture, and terrorizing of others
"resume their good graces in eyes of g-o-d" !!!!
The principle of the Inquisition was murderous ... The popes were not only murderers in the great style, but they also made murder a legal basis of the Christian Church and a condition for salvation. Lord Acton (1834-1902)
The name Inquisition is somewhat misleading in that over the centuries there have been a number of Inquisitions. They have been directed against all of the groups we have looked at - pagans and supposed witches, dissenting sects, Cathars, Moslems, Jews and members of other religions. They have also been directed against freethinkers, apostates, atheists, and blasphemers.In 1184 Pope Lucius III and the Emperor Frederick formulated a program for the repression of heretics. This document, Ad abolendum, is sometimes known as the charter of the Inquisition, because it set the tone for future developments. The Fourth Lateran Council in 1215 ordered all bishops to hold an annual inquisition, if there was a suspicion of heresy in their See. But these Episcopal Inquisitions were found to be inadequate to the task.The Medieval Inquisition.
A roving papal Inquisition was set up in 1231 by Pope Gregory IX. He extended existing legislation against heretics and introduced the death penalty for them - indeed for anyone who dissented from his views. This Inquisition was initially intended to be temporary, and was used to extirpate surviving Cathars in the Languedoc. Anyone accused or "defamed" was treated as guilty, and no one once defamed got off without some punishment. After 1227 inquisitorial commissions were granted only to the friars, usually to the Dominicans. The Inquisition was now the "Dominican Inquisition". Dominic Guzmán's threats of slavery and death for the citizens of the Languedoc were fulfilled for a second time. First the massacres, now the Inquisition. The bishop of Toulouse marked the canonization of St Dominic on his first Saint's Day (4th August 1234), by burning a woman for her Cathar beliefs. She had confessed to him as she lay sick in bed with a fever. She was carried to a field, still on her sickbed, and consigned to the flames .All of the legal apparatus of the Inquisition was developed during this period. Elsewhere, courts followed at least the basic rules of justice: the accused knew their accusers, they were allowed legal representation, in some places judgement was delivered by a jury composed of peers of the accused. The old bishops' Inquisitions had been public hearings, but these papal inquisitions were different: now secret hearings took place before clerical judges and prosecutors. Guilt was assumed from the start. There were no juries, no legal representation for the accused . No habeas corpus. No disclosure of any evidence against the accused. No appeal. Inquisitors were allowed to excuse each other for breaches of the rules - which meant that in effect there were no rules.
There were secret depositions and anonymous accusations, torture and unlimited detention in appalling conditions for those who failed to confess. People were immured, walled up, chained, with no light and given only bread and water. Dead people were tried along with the living. When found guilty their children were disinherited. At least half the estate generally went to the Church - so that the Church had an direct material interest in a guilty verdict. Children and grandchildren of those found guilty were all debarred from any secular office.Gregory's immediate successor died before assuming the reins of office, but the next Pope, Innocent IV, made the Inquisition into a permanent institution. In 1252 he issued a bull Ad extirpanda which explicitly authorised the use of torture, seizure of goods and execution, all on minimal evidence. Torture was to be administered by the secular authority, but when this proved impractical the inquisitors were allowed to administer it themselves (and to absolve each other for doing so). Thereafter it was an exceptional man, woman or child who could not quickly be convinced of his or her heresy.In theory torture could be applied only once, and could not be such as to draw blood, to cause permanent mutilation or to kill. Boys under the age of fourteen and girls under twelve were excused. In practice there was no-one to enforce any of these safeguards, and they were all ignored. The accused were imprisoned, often for many months, before being examined. They were often kept in solitary confinement, in insanitary conditions, in a dark dungeon, and without adequate heating, food or water. This was deliberate, and designed to ensure that most of the accused would already have broken by the time of the first examination. Only the strongest characters were able to face a tribunal of hooded figures who claimed to have heard witnesses and seen incriminating evidence. Most were prepared to admit anything, even though they did not know what the accusations were. Those who failed to admit their crimes were taken to torture chamber and shown the instruments of torture. This too was designed to terrify and break them - the dark chamber, the horrifying instruments, the torturer-executioner dressed and hooded in black. If they still failed to admit their guilt they were then subjected to torture: men, women and children alike. Some people were tortured for years before confessing. Only the most exceptional could resist. Every day they risked being tortured to death .Tortures varied from time to time and place to place, but the following represent the more popular options. Victims were stripped and bound. The cords were tied around the body and limbs in such a way that they could be tightened, by a windlass if necessary, until they acted like multiple tourniquets. By attaching the cords to a pulley the victim could be hoisted off the ground for hours, then dropped. Whether the victim was pulled up short before the weight touched the floor, or allowed to fall to the floor the pain was acute (this was the torture of the pulley, also known as squassation. It was also called the strappado, by which name we have already encountered it at Bamberg). John Howard found this still in use in Rome in the second half of the eighteenth century . The rack was a favourite for dislocating limbs. Again, the victim could be flogged, bathed in scalding water with lime, and have their eyes removed with purpose designed eye-gougers. Fingernails were pulled out. Grésillons (thumbscrews) were applied to thumbs and big-toes until the bones were crushed. The victim was forced to sit on a spiked iron chair which could be heated by a fire underneath until it glowed red-hot. Branding irons and red hot pincers were also used. The victim's feet could be placed in a wooden frame called a boot. Wedges were then hammered in until the bones shattered, and the "blood and marrow spouted forth in great abundance". Alternatively the feet could be held over an open fire, and literally roasted until the bones fell out; or they could be placed in huge leather boots into which boiling water was poured, or in metal boots into which molten lead was poured. Since the holy proceedings were conducted for the greater glory of God the instruments of torture were sprinkled with holy water.Whole families were accused. Family members would often be induced to incriminate each other in order to minimise the suffering of their loved ones. Minor heretics who confessed might escape with light sentences, whereas denial invited trouble. The Inquisitor Conrad of Marburg burned every victim who claimed to be innocent. Hearings of the Inquisition denied every aspect of natural justice, and became ever more prejudiced as time went on. They were held in secret, generally conducted by men whose identities were concealed. In the Papal States and elsewhere Dominicans acted as both Judge and Prosecutor. By papal command they were forbidden to show mercy. There was no appeal. The evidence of embittered husbands and wives, children, servants and persons heretical, excommunicated, perjured and criminal could be used, secretly and without their having to face the accused, their charges being communicated to him only in summary form.No genuine defence could be sustained. For example, if a husband provided an alibi, saying that his wife had been asleep in his arms when she was alleged to have been attending a witches' sabbat, it would be explained to him that a demon had adopted the form of his wife while she was away. The husband had been duped. There was no way for him to prove otherwise. Spies were employed with the incentive of payment by results. Perjury was pardoned if it was the outcome of "zeal for the faith" - i.e. supporting the prosecution. Loyalties were over-ridden so that obedience to a superior was forbidden if it hindered the inquiry, and those who helped the inquisitors were granted the same indulgences as pilgrims to the Holy Land. Any advocate acting for and any witness giving evidence on behalf of a suspect laid themselves open to charges of abetting heresy. No one was ever acquitted, a released person always being liable to re-arrest and a condemned person liable to a revised sentence with no retrial, at the discretion of the inquisitor. In theory torture could be inflicted only once, but in practice it was repeated as often as necessary on the pretext that it was a single occurrence, with intervals between the sessions. Confessions were virtually guaranteed unless the victim died under torture. Then came the sentence, and execution of the sentence:..The obdurate and relapsed were taken outside the church and handed to the magistrates with a recommendation to mercy and instruction that no blood be shed. The supreme hypocrisy of this was that if the magistrate did not burn the victims on the following day, he was himself liable to be charged with abetting heresy....Almost everyone fell within their jurisdiction. People were executed for failing to fast during Lent, for homosexuality, fornication, explaining scientific discoveries, and even for professional acting.In order that blood not be shed the favoured methods of execution did not involve the cutting of flesh. So it was that burning was popular, the stake having been inherited from Roman Law. The estates of those found guilty were forfeit, after the deduction of expenses. Expenses included the costs of the investigation, torture, trial, imprisonment and execution. The accused bore it all, including wine for the guards, meals for the judges, and travel expenses for the torturer. Victims were even charged for the ropes to bind them and the tar and wood to burn them. Generally, after paying these expenses, half of the balance of the estate went to the inquisitors and half to the Pope, or a temporal lord. This proved such an efficient way of raising money that it became popular to try the dead as well as the living. Bones were dug up and burned, even after many years in the grave. As in trials of the living, there were no acquittals, and the heretic's property was forfeit. In practice this meant that the heirs of the deceased were dispossessed of their inheritances.The trial of the Templars demonstrates how unjust the Inquisition could be. The charges of heresy against them were almost certainly fabricated. No real evidence was ever produced to support the accusations. The best that could be managed was hearsay evidence such as that of a priest (William de la Forde) who had heard from another priest (Patrick de Ripon), that a Templar had once told him, under the inviolable seal of confession, about some rather improbable goings on . The most damning evidence was obtained by Inquisitors through the use of torture. In countries where torture was not permitted the Templars denied the charges, however badly they were otherwise treated and however long they were imprisoned. As soon as torture was applied the required confessions materialised . Inquisitors refused to attach their seals to depositions unless they included confessions , so that only one side of case appeared in official records. In France, where torture was applied freely there were many confessions, and also many deaths under torture. Anyone who retracted their confession faced death at the stake as a relapsed heretic.Under torture, the Grand Master himself confessed - though it is likely that his confession was fabricated or at least added to, since he was dumfounded when it was read out to him in public. When he tried to mount a defence on behalf of the Order he was told that "in cases of heresy and the faith it was necessary to proceed simply, summarily, and without the noise of advocates and the form of judges" . Since all of the Order's assets had been seized there was in any case no way for him to mount an effective defence. By asking to do so he invited death at the stake, as a number of churchmen pointed out at the time.When no English Templars could be induced to confess, the Pope insisted that torture be applied. When the Archbishop of Mainz delivered a verdict favourable to the Templars at a provincial council, the Pope simply annulled it . When it looked as though the Templars in Cypress might be acquitted the Pope ordered a new trial backed by torture . When the fate of the Templars was considered at the Council of Vienne late in 1311 the Cardinals had "a long dispute" as to weather a defence should be heard at all . In the event no defence was heard and the Pope enforced the King's demand that the Order be suppressed.Templar assets were divided up between Church and State, and interest in the fates of individual Templars immediately subsided. Jacques de Molay, the Grand Master, retracted his confession knowing what the consequences would be, and was roasted alive, slowly, over a smokeless fire on 18th March 1314. .The activities of the Inquisition were so terrible that the memory of them has survived throughout Europe to the present day. Some Christians acknowledge that this body was one of the most sinister that the world has ever known, and now attribute its work to satanic forces. On the other hand there are many others prepared to defend its record.The Spanish Inquisition. The Medieval Inquisition was established in Barcelona in 1233. Five years later its authority was extended to Castille, Leon, and Navarre. This was essentially an extension of the Inquisition established to extirpate the remnants of Catharism. Over two hundred years later another inquisition was to appear: the Spanish Inquisition. It was established by their Catholic Majesties, Ferdinand and Isabela, in 1479, with the explicit sanction of Pope Sixtus IV who in 1483 also confirmed the Dominican friar Thomas de Torquemada as Grand Inquisitor for Aragon and Castile. The Inquisition was initially directed against Jewish and Moslem converts who were suspected of returning to their own religion, and thus being guilty of apostasy. (Many had converted to Christianity only under threat of death).The process was much the same as that of the medieval Inquisition, and indeed was deliberately modeled on it. It too was manned mainly by Dominicans. They copied the methods of dilation, arrest, trial, punishment, staffing, and procedure, even down to the blessing of the instruments of torture.There were a few differences from the Medieval Inquisition, for example there were cases were people were able to mount a defence and were acquitted. Better records were kept. Some Inquisitors seem to have been relatively enlightened and were suspicious of accusations motivated by the self interest of accusers. Prisons seem to have been better than most eccliastical prisons - there are cases of people committing minor heresies in order to get themselves transferred from eccliastical prisons to those of the Inquisition. On the other hand, this may say more about eccliastical prisons than Inquisition prisons, for even in the latter many died before their cases were heard. In the early days the accused were able to appoint their own defense councel, but by the mid sixteenth century this had changed. If advocates were permitted they had to be abogados de los presos, officials of the Inquisition, dependant upon the Inquisitors for their jobs. It is fair to assume, as their clients did, that these court officials were aware of their employers' expectations and of the dangers of doing their jobs too well.It was widely accepted that the Inquisition existed only to rob people, as they openly affirmed . Both rich and poor knew that it was the rich who were most at risk. The fact that the Inquisition funded itself from the property it confiscated meant that in effect it burned beople on commission. Individual Inquisitors also funded themselves, acquiring great wealth during their careers. Some inquisitors were known to have fabricated evidence in order to extort money from their victims, but even when discovered they received no punishment . Similarly their staff of helpers, called familiars, were free to commit crimes without fear of punishment by the secular courts . After 1518 this was formalised. Familiars enjoyed immunity from prosecution similar to benefit of clergy or modern diplomatic immunity. This provided another cause of popular scandal, along with their exemption from taxation.The activities of the inquisitors were resented by all sections of society, and the papacy was obliged to interfer from time to time though the Inquisitors were powerful enough to ignore it on many occasions. Pope Sixtus IV issued a bull on 18th April 1482 protesting thatin Aragon, Valencia, Mallorca and Catalonia the Inquisition has for some time been moved not by zeal for the faith and the salvation of souls, but by lust for wealth, and that many true and faithful Christians, on the testimony of enemies, rivals, slaves and other lower and even less proper persons, have without any legitimate proof been thrust into secular prisons, tortured and condemned as relapsed heretics, deprived of their goods and property and handed over to the secular arm to be executed, to the peril of souls, setting a pernicious example, and causing disgust to manyWhen someone was arrested all of their property was seized. This was then sold off as required to pay for the upkeep of the person arrested. This might go on for years until the property was all sold off. Their families were not supported, so that they also suffered hardships. In some cases the children of rich parents starved in the streets . Others survived by begging. The King, Ferdinand, intervened from time to time, and later, in 1561, provision was made to support dependents - though the effect was to use up the sequestered assets that much faster.The accused were invited to confess their crimes but not told what these crimes were. Sometimes it was difficult to guess: changing bedding on a Friday, not eating pork, dressing in certain ways, wearing earrings, speaking in foreign languages, owning foreign books, casual swearing, critisising a priest, failing to show due reverence to the Inquisition, all these could be serious crimes. Three methods of torture were popular, the garrucha, the toca and the potro. The garrucha was the strapedo under yet another name. The toca was a water torture. A linen strip was forced down the throat of the accused and water poured down it until the stomach was distended. The potro was a form of rack combined with torniques.Surviving records of these torture sessions make harrowing reading . As the torture progressed the victims were soon ready to admit to anything. They would admit to having done whatever they were accussed of. But since they did not know the specifics of the accusation they could not admit to them item by item. Not good enough. More torture was applied. They admitted to whatever their accusers had said, but again they could not be specific because they did not know what their accusers had said. Still not good enough. More torture was applied. They begged for clues. They begged for mercy. They were told to confess. They confessed to crimes, real or invented, apparently whatever they could think of. They would admit to anything if only the torture would stop. Sometimes it was what the Inquisitors wanted, sometimes it was not. If it was not more torture was applied. They asked what it was the Inquisitors wanted and offered to confess to it whatever it was. Still not good enough. More torture was applied. And so it went on, sometimes until they went mad. Sometimes they died under tortured. Many died in prison. Others committed suicide. Of the survivers some were disabled for life.The lucky ones got off with penances, whipping or banishment. Others were condemned to slow deaths in prison or in the galleys.Of all the punishments which the Inquisition inflicted in the name of God, for sheer long-continued cruelty, nothing ever rivalled the treatment of the galley-slaves, who were flogged very nearly every day during the period they laboured at the oars…It was a fate worse than death. For, as everyone knew, it meant a life of the most terrible hardship man could possibly endure and yet continue to live; it almost inevitably entailed death long before the sentence was completed. It meant, in the majority of instances, that the victim was gradually whipped to death.Others were condemned to public execution. But this was rarely a simple matter of dispatching the victim. Even those who confessed immediately were tortured. Execution was not the sentence - it was an additional sentence. At the end of the trial a public ceremony was held called an Auto-da-fé (Portuguese for Act of Faith). The victim was dressed in a penitential tunic (san benito) painted with a design. An impenitent wore one painted with a picture of its wearer burning in Hell with devils fanning the flames. On their heads they wore a three foot long pointed pasteboard cap (coroza), also painted. Around their neck they wore a noose, and in their hands they carried a candle. Anyone judged likely to speak out against the Inquisition was gagged. After a procession came a Mass and Sermon, in which the Inquisition was praised and heresy condemned. The sentences were read aloud and then carried out. As usual the secular authorities were obliged to burn victims on the Church's behalf on the grounds that ecclesia non novit sanguinem - the Church does not shed blood. Burning generally took place on Sundays or festivals in order to attract the largest possible audience. Participation was a meritorious act - so for example anyone who helped collect firewood would remission of their sins.A slow roasting was considered preferable to quick incineration. Victims were tied high up on their stakes, partly to give the crowds of faithful a good view, partly to prolong the agony. Sometimes there was further torture before the fire was lit. For example Protestants who refused to recant had burning furzes thrust into their faces until they were burned black. The whole event was popular festival for the devout, who enjoyed the spectacle and ridiculed the victims in their death agonies. The events were closely linked to royal spectacles. The king was obliged by his coronation oath to attend these mass burnings. Such burnings were even held to help celebrate royal marriages.Children and grandchildren of the condemned were prohibited from becoming priests, judges or magistrates, lawyers, notaries, accountants, physicians, surgeons, or even shop keepers. They could not become mayors or hold other public offices. Some penalties passed from generation to generation without limit. Under statutes of limpieza de sangre, the descendants of heretics, like those of Jews and Moors, suffered civil disabilities because of their "tainted blood". San benitos worn by heretics were hung up in local churches as an eternal badge of shame so that no-one should forget their heretical ancesters. When old san benitos wore out over the centuries they were replaced by new onesThe Spanish Inquisition continued its work for centuries, and exported its practices to the New World. The Portuguese exported similar practices to their colonies, not only to the New World but also East to countries like Goa. The fact that very few New World Indians could be induced to convert should have meant that there was little recidivism, and therefore little heresy. In fact many hundreds of heresy trials were conducted in South America.The Spanish Inquisition continued to execute its victims into the nineteenth century. When the French army invaded Spain in 1808 the Dominicans in Madrid denied that they had torture chambers in their building. The soldiers searched and found that they did. The chambers were full of naked prisoners, many of them insane. Similar discoveries were made throughout the country.As for other Inquisitions, the total number of men, women and children tortured or burned to death is unknown because so many records have been lost. So to for the famies dispossed, children orphaned, communities destroyed. All we can say with certainty is that the pain and suffering caused is incalculable. It is also fair to say that, while it existed it, the Spanish Inquisition was regarded with horror, even by Catholics from other countries who witnessed its activities. It was abolished by Joseph Bonaparte in 1808, but it was reintroduced by Ferdinand VII in 1814, and finally ended by government decree on 15th July 1834.The Roman Inquisition. The Roman Inquisition, more correctly the Congregation of the Inquisition was set up in 1542 by Pope Paul III to help eradicate Protestantism from Italy. It was composed of Cardinals, one of whom had proposed its establishment in the first place. He later became Pope himself, taking the name Paul IV. A keen opponent of the free exchange of ideas, he enjoys the distinction of having put even his own writings on the Index.Procedures of the Roman Inquisition were no more just than those of earlier Inquisitions, and executions became more common than in Spain. Freethinkers and scientists were added to the existing categories of victim for torture and execution. It was this Inquisition that was responsible for burning the foremost philosopher of the Italian renaissance, Giordano Bruno, in 1600; and for inducing the foremost scientist, Galileo, to recant under the threat of torture.Book burning was as popular as elsewhere, but political repression added a new dimension. This persecution too continued for centuries, until the Papacy became too far out of step with the western world. Eventually the Church decided to change its ways, or at least give the appearance of changing them. Pope Pius VII purported to forbid the use of torture in 1816, though in practice it continued to be used for decades to come. Public burnings became something of an embarrassment too. The answer was not to abandon executions but to carry them out more discretely. Pius IX, in an edict of 1856, sanctioned 'secret execution'. In the Papal States things had changed little since the Middle Ages - it was for example still a crime to eat meat on a feast day. Political trials were conducted by priests, whose power was absolute. Again, the accused were not permitted legal representation, nor were they allowed to face their accusers. All this came to an end only in 1870, when the Papal States were seized. The last prisoners of the Inquisition were released, and the Pope became a self confined prisoner in his own palace.In 1908 the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Inquisition changed its name to the Holy Office. In 1967 it changed it again, this time to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. It still functions from a large building near the sacristy of St Peter's in Rome. Since 1870 its dungeons have been converted into offices. Despite the name change, there is no apparent embarrassment about its history. On the contrary it still conducts heresy trials according to rules that breach what are elsewhere regarded as elementary rules of natural justice.Because so many records have been lost no one knows how many people were sentenced to death by Inquisitors.
Even sources sympathetic to the Roman Church accept estimates in excess of nine million. One irony is that the Medieval, Spanish and Roman Inquisitions would all have burned Jesus as a persistent heretic if he had appeared before them. They might each have done so on different grounds: for example for advocating absolute poverty, for practising Judaism, and for criticising St Peter.
