Comments on Scalia's November 2004 N.Y. Synagogue Visit

According to a November 22nd AP story, J. Scalia attended a gathering at Manhattan's Shearith Israel Synagogue, an Orthodox temple where Justice Benjamin Cardozo once worshipped. Never one to shy away from controversy, Nino reportedly commented on the Holocaust by ambiguosly stating, "[d]id it turn out that, by reason of the separation of church and state, the Jews were safer in Europe than they were in the United States of America? I don't think so."
Well, at least two progressive commentators, Thom Hartmann and Maureen Farrell wasted no time responding to Nino's views on European history.
