    Know the meaning of the term,Tshuvah Moshe? One who carries it out attains a moral level with Moshe Rebbenu. Anyway, the decision was not yours any more than Catholics should express their indignation at the insulting behaviour of both of Israel's chief rabbis who did not have the decency to attend the pope's funeral because they were too busy preparing for the national b'dikat chometz! it is time for Jews to receive with an open heart the sincere overtures seeking a profound forgiveness from Jewws for the sins commited in the name of Christ and the Church against the Jewish people. Accept it without any qualificiation or suspicion and move on to a tommorrow that will not be more of the same. It demands a response from the Jewish people and it does not help when the response is one of suspicion, of teaching young men in yeshiva that if they see a beautiful church they shoudl never comment on it or mention it, or that they should spit when they go past, or that no rabbi would enter a church where there is a crucifix, or that if they do (as some rabbinical representative from Haifa did at the pope's funeral) that they do so for no other reason because it will be good for the Jews and he goes not as an individual but as a representative of the Jewish State. We must get to the point where our first and foremost response to the sincere pleas from the Church for forgiveness and reconciliation is met with something other than yes, but..... or kol ha olam negdeynu (all the world is against us). This diminishes our humanity and makes a mockery of the Torah and those who claim to live by its principles.
