Melman's article was quite interesting. It is probably true. It corroborates with other historical evidence about the Vatican's despicable behavior towards the Jews during the period of the Shoah, which is just a logical continuation of 2000 yrs of Church ideological hatred towards the Jewish People. The BBC refers to the current Pope Benedict, as "God's Rottweiler", as he was the head of the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith" - more commonly known as the Inquisition. But now that they issued Nostra Aetate, we Jews are supposed to forgive and forget. Just like the Holy Inquisition, the current leftist regime that rules Israel has laws that forbid the dissemination of truth, and of course such laws are ipso facto democratic and just because they were passed by a Knesset majority. In particular, in the State of Israel it is a criminal offense to say or write anything that offends religious sensibilities, regardless of the truth of the statements. Beware Messrs Melman & Landau!
