  1. I hear he recited the Kaddish too. It’s always nice to appropriate someone else’s culture to cover up a lack of integrity in your own. It makes for great PR too!

  2. I don’t know. What else is he supposed to do? I thought this was quite something from a pope,
    “Deep down, those vicious criminals, by wiping out this [Jewish] people, wanted to kill the God who called Abraham, who spoke on Sinai and laid down principles to serve as a guide for mankind, principles that are eternally valid.”

  3. >> I don’t know. What else is he supposed to do?
    I think the gesture was worthy, but it was only a gesture. A nod to Rome’s lack of action would have been an even better gesture.

  4. I don’t know. I think it brings up the same issue we dicuss when non-Jews make Jewish jokes…why is it okay when a Jew makes a disparaging remark but not when a non-Jew says the exact same thing? How many of us have struggled with the very question the Pope raised – where was God during the Shoah? I think that his comment was probably taken a little out of context because as above mentioned the Pope did make a lot of mature comments…maybe it wasn’t appropriate for him to say, where was our God, but it’s not like we haven’t all asked ourselves the same thing.
