Sad Dreams

Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam
in response to reader comment: Dreams are the beginnings of reality

Submitted by Moshe (Israel), Jul 9, 2006 at 12:21

Dear Patricia,

The Holocaust record of the Christian Europe in general, and of the Catholics in particular is terrible. I don't think that the memories of the Holocaust can do much good to the image of Catholics. In your stead I would have rather not mentioned it. How many Righteous Christians are honored at Yad VaShem? These are just a few thousand exceptions in an ocean of inhumanity and hatred. The Nazi Germany couldn't have accomplished that horrendous crime against humanity without the cooperation of the rest of Europe. It is a sad reality which we must face, and with which we must live. Denying it does no good to anybody. We must soberly face the sad facts, learn the lesson, and draw the conclusions.

Keeping all this in mind, we must strive for a better and more human world, to learn from the past, and work for a better future. Not only Jews and Christians, but all decent people in the world should unite to fight this formidable threat of the Mad Islam.
