Toaff isnt retracting - he is toning it down not to offend, which isnt good academic writing. Some of history is offensive but true. He is saying that there is evidence that a small number of Jews did this and to deny it is stupid. Not every Jew was a killer of Christians and not every Christian was a killer of Jews. A minority shouldnt define the majority. Maybe people are afraid of persecution again which is a reasonable fear but perhaps too it is also easier to think of oneself as a victim and never a perpetrator!! Maybe these things need to be discussed openly rather than denial.
