The Daily Toaff

Bar Ilan 'satisfied' with defense of blood libel book Jerusalem Post

The professor who wrote the book about the blood libels won't lose his job. Why not? Because Bar Ilan, the university that employs Toaff, is '"completely satisfied" with Toaff's explanation: that the book was only about anti-Christian sentiment among a small group of Ashkenazi Jews in northern Italy.'

Sentiment, not violence

Additionally, Toaff is now on the record saying that he does not believe that even the small community of Ashkenazi fanatics under discussion ever killed anyone: "I believe that ritual murders never happened," he said. "There is no proof that Jews committed such an act."
