Contrary to Pellivert's assertions, the Jewish people never claimed an unblemished collective personna from which it mercifully must be "unburdened". The Holy Writings are full of personalities whose less-than-admirable traits are acknowledged and used as negative examples from which we are taught to better our own behaviours. Likewise we do not need Toaff, whose very public validation of ancient blood-lible accusations Pellivert defends, to offer pseudo-academic justifications for the pogroms that too often reached genocidal proportions throughout history. Even if the world was a thoughtful and fair-minded place, it would be outrageous to attach credibility to the possability of such perverse theories, but the world is not such a place. Pellivert might imagine himself safe from the madness Toaff's musings unleash. He is not. Nor are many vulnerable Jews they both place in new jeopardy by an irresponsability which surpasses intellectual negligence and stands at the cusp of malevolence
