Centuries from now, when we say that the Germans killed Jews in World War II, are we being anti-Germanic?
It's clear in the gospels the Jews ordered the crucifixion for Christ, as the famous Sanhedrin ruled, better for one man to fall for the sake of many.
Sure, we also talk about the Gentiles, the Roman soldiers who were brutal and bloodthirsty as usual in their lofty positions. So there's an acknowledgement there.
And His Holiness never denied that we do who are sinners can also be guilty of crucifying Christ in an allegorical fashion. Literal history has it that the Jews asked for the release of a murderer, and chose the death of Christ on the humiliating Cross. There's nothing anti-semitic or anti-Christian about that. We just seem to have people who are too sensitive.
I'll say it, Egyptians enslaved and perhaps brutalized Hebrews. Those darn stupid Egyptians! 10 plagues served them right!!!!
I support His Holiness on this. I don't support his ban on Jerusalem, but I see nothing anti-Semitic His Holiness said.
We also acknowledge the superiority of the Jews, through which Christ came. That doesn't make me a Zionist either.
