The Germans at that time also wanted to protect themselves with "walls and barbed wire so that others cannot take away their identity," he said.
"The case of Germany is classic," he said, adding that Hitler gave them a "deformed identity and we know what it produced."

Maybe the Pope needs to be reminded of all the genocide in the name of the Catholic church. He should probably clean up his own house before throwing stones.
“That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind will be questioned by no Protestant who has a complete knowledge of history.” Some historians estimate that over 50 million lives (mostly Christians from Christ’s true Church), were taken by this so-called “holy” Inquisition to which they have never apologized.
