ADL’s Foxman insults the memory of Pope Pius XII, takes offense at Benedict’s remarks

According to the recent ADL press release:

Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today renewed its call for the opening of the complete Vatican archives on the Second World War following remarks by Pope Benedict XVI calling his predecessor, Pope Pius XII, a “great, righteous” man who “saved more Jews than anyone else” during the Holocaust.

The real question is, “Why does the ADL need to search the Vatican archives, when the historical evidence for the heroic actions of Pius XII, along with testimonials from virtually every Jewish leader of the time, is and always has been readily available, from Google, and from just about nay decent public library?

At Pope Pius XII death in 1958, Golda Meir sent an eloquent message: “We share in the grief of humanity. When fearful martyrdom came to our people in the decade of Nazi terror, the voice of the pope was raised for its victims. The life of our times was enriched by a voice speaking out about great moral truths above the tumult of daily conflict. We mourn a great servant of peace.”

Like these heroic witnesses of the Holocaust we must all respond openly and seek the ideal of sainthood, regardless of our different races, religions and ethnic backgrounds. We must have love for one another, hope in the integrity of future generations, and faith in the Almighty Father of us all.
