After reading Anthony’s piece about Google bombs, I couldn’t resist a peek at “Jew Watch”, the anti-Semitic conspiracy site that came so high in searches for the word “Jew” that the civilized world had to displace it with a Google bomb. Their front page story (complete with photo of the recently deceased) is—I kid you not—“Was The Pope Jewish?”.
The headline links to a page where the damning evidence is collected. My favourites: many of the young Karol’s best friends were Jewish and “he was a gifted actor, and a fine singer“. Apparently the Pope-to-be became a devout Catholic to escape the Nazis, but it all got a bit out of hand and he ended up the head of the Holy Roman Church.
You guys can think of pithy last line for this one. This is another one of those rare occasions when I am lost for words.
