Looks like Il Papa exonerated all Jews for the killing of their man-god. 

Well, not ALL Jews.

The BBC reports:

"Now we must ask: Who exactly were Jesus' accusers?" he says, as he considers Jesus' condemnation to death by Roman governor Pontius Pilate. He also asks why St John said Jesus' accusers were "the Jews".
"How could the whole people have been present at this moment to clamour for Jesus' death?"

Benedict explains how only a few Temple leaders and a small group of supporters were primarily responsible for the crucifixion. He believes John's reference to "the Jews" must have been towards the "Temple aristocracy", because Jesus had declared himself King of the Jews and had violated Jewish law."

So don't fear the wrath of Rome anymore Jews!  Apparently it was just us Kohanim that killed Jesus. You all forgive 2000 years of Crusades, Inquisitions and Nazi collaboration.  I'll be hiding in the root cellar.

Come out of the celler!

You are just in time for the Third Intifada and other world merry-making. The nations of the world are ganging up on us, and you featured the ring leader in your return post.
