Poking the Bear (in the woods with a funny hat)

Pope Benedict XVI has defended the Vatican against accusations of indifference towards the Nazis' annihilation of Europe's Jews in WWII.(BBC)

Yesterday the Pope visited a synagogue and said something or other about how the Vatican sort of maybe did some kinda good stuff for the jews during the Holocaust.  These statements drew protest from some elements of Italy's jewish community.

Aren't these protesters setting an unreasonably high bar?

After all didn't the Vatican basically invent the "annihilation of Europe's Jews"? Don't get them started.
