Former Vatican envoy to the United Nations – well, what do you expect?
It’s more the kind of thing one might expect from an enraged, ill-educated protester, keffiyah wrapped over his face, perhaps brandishing a placard which tells you that he is semi-literate and cannot be expected to read history so relies on others to tell him what to think about Israel and Jews.
This disappointing piece of nonsense fell from the lips of a Vatican Cardinal, though. Likening Gaza to a concentration camp is ignorant and anti-Semitic.
Germany was not defending itself from a rain of missiles aimed at its civilian population by Jews. The Israelis have not herded Palestinians into Gaza with the intention of wiping them out – on the contrary, it is Hamas who have made clear their genocidal intentions towards the Jews.
A spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry said the cardinal, whose remarks appeared in an interview Wednesday, adopted the kind of language that Hamas and other Islamic militant groups have used to demonize Israel and equate it with Nazi Germany

Cardinal Martino was formerly Vatican envoy to the far from perfect and deeply anti-Israel UN so perhaps we should not be too surprised.
