"Secretly And Silently" Nazi Pope Pushed By German Jesuits and Benedict For Sainthood? Israel Postures"Not On Your Life Buddy"

Sainthood For Pope Pius XII "UNACCEPTABLE!", Israeli Minister Says

An Israeli cabinet minister stepped into a row with the Vatican today, saying it was "unacceptable" to consider canonising Pius XII, who was pope during the second world war and has been criticised by some for not publicly opposing the Holocaust.

In an interview with the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, Isaac Herzog, Israel's social affairs minister, who is responsible for relations with Christian communities, said efforts to turn Pius into a saint were "an exploitation of forgetfulness and lack of awareness".

He accused Pius of having kept silent during the war. "Throughout the period of the Holocaust, the Vatican knew very well what was happening in Europe," Herzog told the paper. "Yet there is no evidence of any step being taken by the pope, as the stature of the Holy See should have mandated ... Instead of acting according to the biblical verse 'thou shalt not stand against the blood of thy neighbour' the pope kept silent - and perhaps even worse."

What would Israel "Eugenio" Zolli say about all this ruckus?

Well, either way, as Michael Hoffman writes in his insightful evidence packed iron worded reference, BOTH branches of Christendom were influenced by the "neoplatonic cause".
