    Jewish anecdotal history is replete with stories of Xtian priests who murdered innocent Xtian children and then used blood libles to shift the blame for these dreadful acts onto innocent Jews. These stories sometimes ended with the tragic death of thusly martyred Jews who died "Al Kiddush HaShem". Other stories ended with the appearance of a scholar/hero who exposed the fraud, thus resolving his fellow Jew's wretched situation. This past decade, wherein seemingly numberless sexual crimes against children by priests of the same Church has been exposed, costing it hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation claims in the United States alone, has lent credence to our historic claims to related experiences with the same organization which used us as a foil to hide similar crimes. Surely Toaff, whose academic speciality is European Medievil History, is aware of the facts stated above, and therefore all the more culpable for having ignored this part of our history in favour of notariety.
