    Some typical Haaretz comments. You see the name "Natallie" and you don't even have to look to know it will be some angry criticism of "Jews" and/or "Israelis," no matter what the subject. You know that some Obama-hating comment will be included, no matter the subject. Then there will often be a non-Israeli critic who says you cannot comment on the actions of others. Pius XII's actions did NOT hurt just Jews. His EARLY Concordat with the Nazi government helped give them cover to engage in the killing of Catholics, Protestants, and so many others, and their institutions, as well as Jews. So, vigorously challenging Nazi policies might have been dangerous? Maybe so. But ask Bonhoeffer about it, not, for example, Ratzinger.
