Answer:

Dear Valerie,
Thanks for listening and for your question. I guess the issue enters at the definition of Jewish people. As I stated in the interview, the majority of the people killed in the Nazi Holocaust were those who practiced Judaism in one form or another or came from that tradition even if they had secularized and therefore, were convinced that they were exclusively Jewish. Again, as I pointed out, I am not denying that they possessed Hebrew roots but history has borne out clearly that it is nearly impossible for there to exist genetically pure Hebrews after millennia of interracial mixing and this is most conspicuous when one takes into account the Diaspora ( dispersion of the Hebrews over the last two thousand years). As I mentioned, if we allow for DNA and genealogical tracing, many who would not see themselves as Jewish may very well possess just as much genetic percentage of Semitic DNA as some who see themselves exclusively as Jewish. These would never consider themselves Jewish however, because they do not adhere to Judaism or come from this tradition. So, the main qualifier of this Jewishness remains association with the Jewish religion-Judaism. This is what sets them apart from those referred to as Gentiles. The fact is however, that this is not genetic as much as it is religious and cultural. So, did Hitler kill Jews? Yes, in this sense. Just as an example of what I am stating, one of the longest running jokes concerning Hitler is that he himself may very well have possessed this blood in some measure and many have pointed out that this inherent hypocrisy may have been the driving force for his wanting to eradicate the race!
Concerning the issue of following Christ there is very little evidence of these cultural Jews subscribing to Christ, not that we can dogmatically say, who knows? There may have been some Messianic Jews among them though, very doubtful. Who is a Jew? I can only quote the Apostle Paul “one who is a Jew is one who is one inwardly, according to the circumcision of the heart (acceptance of Christ as Savior) and not one who is one outwardly, merely through the circumcision of the flesh ( following Judaism and claiming Hebrew DNA).
