How can a scholar like Prof. Wistrich show so much dilettantism or even laziness in searching datas. Before he reiterates an assertion like "The present pope, no doubt, deplores anti-Semitism, though his statements on the subject have been noticeably less robust than those of his predecessor, John Paul II.", I suggest him to read Pope Benedict's speech in Auschwitz in 2006: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/speeches/2006/may/documents/hf_ben-xvi_spe_20060528_auschwitz-birkenau_en.html. And before saying that the current pope "showed remarkably poor judgment in reinstating an unrepentant Holocaust-denying British bishop into the mainstream Catholic Church, an action he only retracted after worldwide Jewish and Catholic protests. ", he should realize his poor amateurism as 1-the british bishop was not "reinstated" into the Church and 2-the action, a lifting of excommunication aimed at easing his conversion, has so far not been "retracted" by the pope.
