"Look at the Jews"

In her excellent column titled Pope Francis, ‘suffering fuels terror’? Look at the Jews, Gheula Canarutto Nemni shows that despite the Pope's claim that “violence, conflict and terrorism…are fueled by fear and desperation…born of poverty and frustration", Jews never used that excuse.  "Yet nothing, not even desperation, can justify terrorism. The roots of terrorism lie only in hatred-based education. We Jews have a lot of experience with desperation. But our history shows other more constructive ways out of it. Desperation has never been a justification for Jews to commit violent acts in the name of our religion."
