    What's been missing from the Toaff hysteria is addressing whether or not the claim is true. So far, he's been condemned for saying it might be, and relegated to the dustbin of raving anti-Semites and self-hating Jews for this. Why mightn't it be true? Are Jews exempt from the same sinful tendencies everyone else has? Might the persistent legends and rumors originally have a basis in fact? If it IS true, then like all truth it needs to be exposed and broadcast -- hiding it will only mean that it will later be discovered by some truly malevolent individual who will try to use it for evil. And so what if it is true? Does it tell us Jews can do horrible things? Common sense and the prophets tell us that. Does it excuse later pogroms? Of course not, and no thinking, moral person would say so. Anyone who would say so doesn't need this one incident to support his opinions -- he'll find other support elsewhere, as others have, from Hitler's writings, the Protocols, whatever.
