Israel's religious leaders asked Pope Benedict on Thursday to make Holocaust studies a required subject in Catholic schools, saying it could help combat anti-Semitism in future generations.
And furnish a steady supply of brain dead automatons who will gladly fork over more money to the never ending Holocaust™ reparations.
The two sides resumed a dialogue that was interrupted by the case of a Holocaust-denying bishop, which brought Catholic-Jewish relations to their lowest point in half a century.
The Israelis also asked that the Vatican take a strong stand against the draft final declaration of next month's U.N. conference on racism, a statement some countries view as hostile to Israel.
"May we suggest for your consideration that the history and the moral import of the Shoah ... become a required subject for inclusion in the curriculum of students at all Catholic schools the world over," Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen asked the pope during a meeting at the Vatican, using the Hebrew word for Holocaust.
Cohen, who is chief rabbi of Haifa, said such a move would "reinforce your strong stand against Holocaust denial and declaring anti-Semitism as a sin against God."
Yes, and the Church should also excommunicate any Catholic who dare ask questions about the Zionist fairy tales surrounding the Holocaust™.
Rabbi David Rosen, International Director of Interreligious Affairs for the American Jewish Congress, told reporters afterwards: "I hope a recommendation (from the pope on Holocaust studies in Catholic schools) will come out of this latest crisis. That will be a silver lining to the cloud."
What $$$$$$ kind of $$$$$$$ silver $$$$$$ lining is the $$$$$$ Rabbi talking about? Any $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ideas?
Maybe they could also start teaching the Talmud in Catholic schools, like this tasty quote from that Jewish "holy" book:
Sanhedrin 57a . When a Jew murders a gentile (”Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.---Like all of that Wall Street pension fund and 401K retirement funds that have made "aliyah" to Israel?
And start saying part of the Mass in Yiddish.
Perhaps when Catholics agree to get down on bended knee and worship at the Holocaust™ altar, Jews in Israel will stop attacking Christians, no?
Why not add another commandment to the original 10, since they are so passé.
"Forgive me Father, for I have sinned in asking questions about the Holocaust™."
"Your penance, my child, is to donate $1,000.00 dollars to the Church's Holocaust™ Reparation fund!"
