Rabbi Shmuley on Holocaust

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (a classic punching bag of the Huffington Post readership) wrote an article about how some theologians try to claim that the Holocaust was actually divine punishment for Jewish peoples' sins.   It remains me of this scene from "God on Trial." Obviously, Boteach didn't agree with that claim but also felt that God should be held accountable for letting it happen.

Anyway, I expected since this was the Huffington Post that the readership would trip over each other to blame the Holocaust on Jewish people (like they have so many times before). But I guess being secular they rejected the whole "divine punishment" angle. That being said, the trolls still showed up to "conflate" Jews and Israel, like always:
