    We cannot, and should not condemn collectively all Poles or Catholics for the words of a single priest. Nor can we overlook that he is a Catholic Pole, a product of centuries of church contempt for Judaism and Jewry. And Poland did share in the degradation and murder of our people during Shoah, and over the centuries of our history in that country; but occasionally it also provided refuge. And before we take umbrage at Poland and its priest, recall that the US also had our antisemitic priest, Father Coughlin, whose radio show in the years leading up to Shoah was highly popular among our own friends and neighbors. If the US was not active in the murder of the Jews, neither did it provide refuge. A few countries allowed us entry during Shoah; the US was not among them. If there is a lesson to be learned it is that anti-Judaism, and its secular daughter antisemitism are endemic to the Christian Diaspora. Either we learn from experience, or again pay the price, in our childrens blood.
