noticed that several women factory workers ended up
getting reduced time for housework and preparation
of meals, working class families suffered from poor

“ Pope Ratzinger listen to someone who knows these things very
well. Your life is in danger. You absolutely must not come to
Turkey. Pope Benedict you must know that between 1980 and
2000 I was in contact with various Western intelligence services
and with the Vatican.
In those twenty years, I learnt many things and I came into
possession of many classified secrets.
For your own welfare, you must make a grand gesture of
honour and resign.
Then you must return to your native land (Germany) and in your
place an Italian cardinal can be elected Pope, possibly
Tettamanzi or Bertone.
Then the Vatican should become a centre of peace and
fraternity. The world has a need of this, it does not need hatred
and vendetta. ”
