I recall hearing reports of this in 2005 from a person teaching English to schoolchildren in South Korea. This person also said that The Diary of Anne Frank is required reading in South Korean schools. The evangelists of double-standard ‘Noahidism’ in the East are primarily Chabad.
I suspect that much of this is based in awe and suspicious beliefs about Judaic power and wealth. Having nearly non-existant Judaic populations and little practical experience to base an informed opinion on, these people aren’t learning real Talmud any more than ‘Madonna’ is. They’re learning the P.R. version of Talmud intended for ‘Noahide’ consumption. The Palestinian people have much practical experience with actualized ‘wisdom of the Talmud.’
As I understand, Judaism and Zionism are not as highly regarded in Japan.

Subject: Developments in Germany in the Williamson appeal matter during the past week concerning his “holocaust minimization” broadcast on Swedish TV and filmed in Germany
32 minutes after lawyer Nahrath, a member of the rightist NPD, informed Judge Eisvogel that he had been added to Bishop Richard Williamson’s legal team, Nahrath received a phone call from Der Spiegel. It is speculated that Der Spiegel’s source of news on the new development had to be its friend lawyer [Maximilian] Krah, an associate of the lawyer Lossman who resigned when Nahrath was added to the legal team.*
In order to placate the priestly Catholic fraternity of the SSPX, Williamson said he will drop his lawyer Nahrath, and his appeal, and asked that the SSPX pay his fine. SSPX Superior Fellay agreed, but the next day Fellay publicly denounced Bishop Williamson and repeated his order to Williamson to drop Nahrath or be ejected from the SSPX. Then Williamson told Fellay that he would continue his appeal but drop Nahrath, reasoning that “A willow will bend whereas an oak will snap and break.” Through all of this Williamson never actually spoke to Fellay. Williamson retained a new lawyer on Nov. 26, politically neutral and with a good professional reputation, but thus far not publicly identified.
*Williamson’s defense lawyer, Matthias Lossmann, told German Press Agency dpa that they had “amicably ended” their cooperation, indicating that this was in part due to Williamson’s decision to hire another lawyer. He said the name would soon be made public.
“You will then see why I no longer feel called for,” he added.
Rome: Joke "offends both the sentiments of believers and the sacred memory of the 6 million victims of the Holocaust"October 4, 2010
Such ‘Holocaust’ piety. Rome now functions primarily as porch-priests of the ‘Holocaust’ museum. They’ve abandoned the Gospel like the White House and Congress abandoned the U.S. citizen-cameraman who the Israelis executed in international waters. They’re kapos.
Berlusconi joke about Jews draws criticism from Vatican newspaper
By John Thavis
Catholic News Service
VATICAN CITY (CNS) — The Vatican newspaper criticized Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for telling a “deplorable” joke about the Jews and the Holocaust.
Berlusconi, chatting with supporters outside his home, told a joke about a Jew who charged a fellow Jew 3,000 euros a day to hide him in his basement during World War II.
Berlusconi’s punch line was: “The Jew says, the question now is whether we should tell him Hitler is dead and the war is over.” The joke was videotaped and posted Oct. 2 on the website of the Italian newspaper, La Repubblica.
The Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, said the story “offends both the sentiments of believers and the sacred memory of the 6 million victims of the Holocaust.”
It said the prime minister’s words were a “sad” example of the uncivil language being used increasingly in politics and public life, a trend recently condemned by the Italian bishops’ conference.
The newspaper of the Italian bishops’ conference, Avvenire, said Berlusconi’s joke was “offensive and inexplicable.”
Berlusconi’s office issued a statement saying the joke was told in private, and that the responsibility for bad taste belonged to those who publicized it.

German court fines British bishop for Holocaust claims
Richard Williamson fined €12,000 over claim on Swedish TV that fewer than 300,000 Jews died in Nazi death camps
Monday 26 October 2009
A British bishop has been fined €12,000 after a German court found him guilty of denying the Holocaust.
Richard Williamson received a letter today from the court in the Bavarian city of Regensburg informing him that he was being fined for incitement over his claim on Swedish television that fewer than 300,000 Jews died in Nazi death camps.
In the interview, Williamson alleged that Nazi gas chambers had never existed and “only 200,000 to 300,000 Jews” had been killed by the Nazis.
Holocaust denial is classed as a hate crime in Germany and because the interview took place in Regensburg, German prosecutors were allowed to investigate.
The bishop’s remarks were made public in January, shortly after Pope Benedict XVI repealed an order made by the previous pope excommunicating Williamson for his rightwing views. Williamson was consecrated a bishop by the pope’s Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), an ultraconservative splinter group.
The outcry was immediate, with both Jews and members of the Catholic hierarchy criticising the pope’s rehabilitation of a Holocaust-denier. While condemning Williamson’s remarks, the Vatican defended its decision, only saying later that it hadn’t known about his very public views about the Holocaust.
Williamson has said through his lawyer that he was assured his offending remarks would not be broadcast in Germany but only in Sweden, where there is no law against Holocaust denial. A Munich newspaper, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, said prosecutors had received a letter from the Swedish television producers in which they denied offering any assurance to Williamson that the interview, conducted in English, would be broadcast in Sweden only.
Williamson’s German lawyer, Matthias Lossmann, said his client had been told to pay €100 a day for 120 days, and he was likely to appeal. If he does, there will be a proper trial in Regensburg, which Williamson will not be forced to attend.
Lossmann told Germany’s Focus magazine that the fine – imposed under an “order of punishment”, a German legal tool that involves no trial but, if accepted by the defendant, is equivalent to a conviction – was too harsh and that the sentencing authorities had been influenced by the publicity surrounding the case. German law allows a maximum sentence of five years in prison for belittling or denying the Holocaust.
In Israel, Catholic School Teachers Study Anti-Semitism & the Holocaust
New York, NY, July 30, 2009 … Catholic school teachers from around the country traveled to Israel to learn about anti-Semitism and the Holocaust as part of the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) nationally acclaimed Bearing Witness Advanced program.
Bearing Witness Advanced provides educators with an opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of Israel against the backdrop of Jewish history, the Holocaust and Catholic-Jewish relations.
“Combining experts’ knowledge of the Holocaust with the words of those who experienced it can have a unique and powerful impact,” said Dr. Ed S. Alster, ADL’s Director of Education. “The teachers learned firsthand how anti-Semitism can lead to tragedy if left unchecked. The experience should enable them to convey these lessons to their students more effectively.”
At Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority, the teachers heard from Holocaust survivors, historians and pedagogical experts. They also visited Christian and Jewish holy sites, and met with interfaith experts. To lend a contemporary sense of Israel, the group traveled around the country, and met with authors, journalists and political analysts.
To prepare for the trip, the educators attended an introductory seminar at Seton Hall University with Holocaust and anti-Semitism experts.
The 19 participants in the 2009 Bearing Witness Advanced seminar hailed from Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Montana, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. All are graduates of regional ADL Bearing Witness programs.
Since its inception, Bearing Witness has trained more than 1,000 Catholic school educators across the country. In 1998 it became an ADL nationally sponsored program and ADL regional offices began replicating the initiative in 2002. Bearing Witness is endorsed by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
