1. A little late. Don't you think?
Ben Yisrael ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (03.03.11)
After Christianity killed tens of millions of Jews for this stupidity. ...
2. oh im so glad we cleared that one up
Avi ,   Israel   (03.03.11)
3. Thanks god, now I know I didn't kill anyone, not even...
JBI ,   Israel   (03.03.11)
...a fellow Jew who lived here, in this country, nearly 2,000 years ago (no, I am not that old, only the classic anti-Semites think I am so old).
4. Finally, What a Relief!
Orly ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (03.03.11)
This Yom Kippur, for the first time, I won't have to pray for attonement for the killing of Jesus - I can finally remove this from my list of "wrongs." It took a long time but Benedict has finally removed this stain of guilt from my conscience.
5. Unbelievable!
Salma ,   Palestine   (03.03.11)
My information says that the Jews were really who killed what do you say Dear Pope ? What I've learned is wrong : (
6. Relief
zznhl   (03.03.11)
Whew...thats a releif! After the countless millions and millions of murders of Jews during pogroms, wars, holocuasts and inquisitions finaly the Catholic Church has found a way to exonerate themselves. "Oooops sorry, we made a mistake!" Perhaps with this they might open up the vaults of the Vatican and return all the loot to the rightfull owners. The Catholic Church should recognise that Jesus was a Jew and preached returning to Jewish principles to Jews and never never to kill jews or anyone else because they didn't agree with his point of veiw.
7. yeshuah was jewish, to think that the catholics
ghostq   (03.03.11)
claim to know about inner jewish affeirs while having so many pagan rituals is pathetic, Catholics killed so many jews, which basically what the Romans did to Yeshuah, which makes themselves acomplice to murder.
8. to #5 you r all the time worng, better get used to it
ghostq   (03.03.11)
Yeshua was jewish, he practised jewish religious cunstoms, from pentacost to easter. the original writings also verify it.
9. Dear Salam #5
Shmuel ,   Maale Adumim   (03.03.11)
This isn't the only thing you have learned wrong! Yet, there is still time to learn the truth about everything!
10. Salma: the Palestinians killed Jesus
Reuven ,   Ramat Aviv, Israel   (03.03.11)
After all, Arafat used to say that Jesus was "the first palestinian fedayeen," and we all know that the Jewish people really doesn't exist, so who could have killed Jesus except the Palestinians?
11. There were lots of killings then as well
Israeli 2   (03.03.11)
Jews were no exception. So, it is very possible that Jews killed Jesus. And if that were so, what of it? I didn't kill him. Why must I be exonerated? For what? We do not need a pope or anyone else to exonerate the entire populace just because some Jews killed him. I am sure there were many other Jews who were not in favor of killing anyone.
12. To a non-believer falistinian
Jonathan ,   USA   (03.03.11)
You can now go and blow (yourself)
13. #5 "What I've learned is wrong".
Yossi ,   Jerusalem   (03.03.11)
You said it with your own mouth. The same goes for your "beloved" Palestine and Jerusalem.
14. graczek..graczek?... g..r..a..c..z...e...k!
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (03.03.11)
Have you digested this yet...? Maybe you'll require some 'Tums' to help.
15. er5 Yeah the Jewish-Israeli governor sentenced him to death
Chris   (03.03.11)
And Jewish soldiers carried out the execution and were guarding his tomb. Nice Palestinian education you got there.
Orao. ,   Srbia.   (03.03.11)
FIRST - Matthew 23 - JESUS SAYS - 9"And call no man your father upon earth, for One is your Father, who is in the Heavens. COMMENT - The Pope/Father is a FAKE, and has no Spiritual Authority whatsoever. And this Fake Spritual Father, is Head of a Fake Assembly/Church thus - SECONDLY - Zechariah 12 10And I will pour upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him as one who is in bitterness for his firstborn. COMMENT - This is what the Jews and israel as a whole, will confess, when the Spirit of YEHOWAH comes upon them. FURTHER He deconstructs one particular biblical account which has the crowd saying, "His blood be on us and on our children" - a phrase frequently cited as evidence of the collective guilt Jews bore and the curse that they carried as a result. COMMENT - This saying was inspired by GOD HIMSELF. CONCLUSION - WE ARE ALL GUILTY OF HIS DEATH, THE CHRISTIAN GOYIM EVERY TIME WE SIN AND NEED HIS CLEANSING BLOOD FOR THEM. AND THE JEWS AND ISRAEL AS A WHOLE, IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AS ABOVE. TRUE THOUGH, THERE WILL BE JEWS AND ISRAELIS WHO CONFESSES JESUS AS THEIR MESSIAH, EVEN THOUGH THE WHOLE OF ISRAEL DONT. MAY YEHOWAH BLESS ISRAEL. Orao.Srbia.
17. Satan and SIN who really killed JESUS
alfred ,   Israel   (03.03.11)
My dear friends did you know that our SIN who really killed JESUS, dont blame it to the jews or somebody in the temple before 2,000 yrs ago. Jesus died for our SIN. So for the jews dont blame yourself, for the muslim respect everyone and for all of us forgiveness is the sweetest revenge.
18. religious mumbo jumbo
ex xtian ,   NZ   (03.03.11)
My understanding as a kid was that God turned up in the form of a human called Jesus and then engineered his own death in order to take away everone's sins .. The fact that he was helped in this project by the Jews suggests some thanks would be in order. I was not taught that we owed the Jews a debt of gratitude for helping God carry out this stunt. On the other hand, the idea that ''the Jews killed Jesus'' and are somehow therefore blameworthy is not a concept I've come across prior to the invention of the internet. A very silly religion, like all religions.
19. Thanks -- but where were you when the ovens were burning?
Scott ,   USA   (03.03.11)
20. Well I'm sure...........
Mike Carmel ,   Rishon le Zion   (03.03.11)
.....that we all feel so much better now.
21. #12 Arafat tried all the time. Reason he never left Mukata.
22. Questions for Salma
Jason, Ph.D. ,   Charlotte, USA   (03.03.11)
Salma, please give us a summary of what the 'Palestinians' were doing during the time of Jesus? Who were there leaders? What were they doing to try to establish a 'Palestinian' state then?
23. Exonerating the Jews
NYC Girl   (03.03.11)
Whenever this question comes up, just like the anti-Semites who claim the Holocaust happened over 60 years ago and it's time to to forget about it, what I want to say to those cretins who still believe the Jews killed Jesus is...It's been 2,000 freakin' years. GET OVER IT!!!
24. #16 Orao
''we are all guilty of his death'' You might be. I had absolutely nothing to do with it. Stop preaching
25. What about relevancy?
noa ,   israel   (03.03.11)
Whether or not Jews killed Christ or not shouldn't really matter a few thousand years after the fact, should it? If it did, it would mean that Jews should still be exacting revenge on Muslims and peoples all over the world who have been killed and conquered by others should also still be exacting revenge. Further, if Christians claim that Jesus was God or Son of God, then he was immortal, wasn't he? Or at least he was no ordinary Man, so the resentment and hate is totally irrational to begin with.
26. Even tha pope is contradicting himself
Matityahu ,   Slovenia   (03.03.11)
Wasn't yeshua supposed to DIE for the sins of mankind and since suicide was out of the question, someone had to bring his death about. If anything, Ratzinger should thank the jews for that.
27. B.S
Brod ,   USA   (03.03.11)
28. to #16 well said
ghostq   (03.03.11)
with all the catholic icons I am suprised he didn't bless Zeus by now. they got so many saints that r not even the Christ's folowers and never even been mentioned by any of his messengers. they forgot the way of god and christ by folowing others.
29. to #17 no it was not satan work, the entity who murdered him
ghostq   (03.03.11)
in cold blood was the one who hated jews, the humans dark souls that is y that foul Roman empire vanished from the face of earth, in history who ever did bad deeds to jews disapeared for ever.
30. Well, as was always led to believe that the Romans killed JC
Lioness ,   Israel   (03.03.11)
