Howell Raines says Jews were responsible for the Holocaust! Outrageous! How can any decent person write for his paper?

...No, wait -- it wasn't the editor of The New York Times, it was the owner of The Washington Times, Sun Myung Moon, who said this in a speech on March 2 in Arlington, Virginia:

"Who are the Jewish members here, raise your hands! Jewish people, you have to repent. Jesus was the King of Israel. Through the principle of indemnity Hitler killed six million Jews. That is why. God could not prevent Satan from doing that because Israel killed the True Parents."

Wake me when a conservative denounces Moon for this, or refuses to write for Moon's Bush-friendly paper.

(The quote is from the May issue of Church & State, the magazine of Americans United for Separation of Church & State. The story isn't online yet.)


UPDATE: It's nearly two years late, but here's the link.
