Hitler wasn't Jewish, you idiot. The fact that he was raised, in part, by a Jewish man has contributed to the speculation of many that his rabid anti-semitism might be traced to his childhood, but that sort of proto-Freudianism has never been very well backed up. The rise of nationalism in Europe during the 19th century often saw the Jewish people tagged an 'alien' presence, a bloodline not compatible with - and even detrimental to - the pure, tribal identities of the European peoples. See Marx' "On the Jewish Question," for an interesting example. And considering Hitler's roots in the German Workers' Party, later the National-So#####t party, you better believe he'd read Marx.

Furthermore, Vatican II wasn't designed as a response to the Holocaust, it was an attempt to modernize the church in light of waning membership. Along with the age-old curse on the Jews, Vatican II also declared all other Christians to be of the 'Body of Christ,' thus saving them from hell; it lifted the prohibition of meat on Fridays; and it ended the classical Latin mass, which nobody but nobody understood anymore.

And one more thing, in case you hadn't noticed, the assumption of collective Jewish guilt ("His blood be on us, and on our children") occurs in only ONE of the gospels, that of Matthew. Not even John - relatively speaking the most radical of the four, and the furthest removed from the life of Christ, historically - includes the curse. It doesn't appear in Mark who, of the four, was closest to the action, chronologically, and appears, magically, in much later texts.

As for your comments about the persecution of Christians, who, exactly, have we been persecuted by? The Romans? I'm sorry, but that argument just doesn't hold up. Meanwhile, we've got the Inquisition, the Bauernkriege and every other conflict surrounding the Reformation, and the brutal colonization of the Americas on our conscience. Reading scripture is fine, but if you don't know your history, you don't know your faith.
