On Monday, May 4, 2009, Mishkenot Sha'ananim and the Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel hosted a briefing at Mishkenot Sha'anaim in Yemin Moshe, Jerusalem, for journalists with His Excellency, Monsignor Antonio Franco, Apostolic Nuncio to Israel, one week before the visit to Israel of Pope Benedikt XVI.

Lowell Gallin asked Monsignor Franco the following question:

"Your Excellency, My question concerns two dates in church history:

Today, May 4, 2009; and March 23, 1993, seventy six years ago.

Please, would you tell us why, on March 23, 1933, was the German Catholic Center Party, under the leadership of Monsignor Kass, ordered by the Vatican to cast the swing vote giving the Nazis the two thirds majority they needed in the Reichstag to pass Hitler's 'Enabling Act', destroying German parliamentary democracy and inaugurating the new Nazi dictatorship?

And would you please tell us why; until today, May 4, 2009, has the Vatican never excommunicated a single Nazi war criminal born Catholic, including Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler; church leaders who collaborated with the Nazis, such as Monsignor Tiso, ruler of the Nazi puppet state of Slovakia; and church leaders, such as Tirolean Bishop Aloys Hudel and Croatian priest Father Krunoslav Draganovic, who participated with many others in running the Berlin-Rome-Buenos Aires Ratlines, which smuggled hundred if not thousands of Nazi war criminals, and money and property they stole, out of Europe to Argentina and other havens of refuge at the end of World War Two?"

Chag Sameach and Shabbat Shalom from Yerushalayim,
