"... the shock of the Shoah has put the whole question under a new light ... Can Christians, after all that has happened, still claim in good conscience to be the legitimate heirs of Israel's Bible? Have they the right to propose a Christian interpretation of this Bible, or should they not instead, respectfully and humbly, renounce any claim that, in the light of what has happened, must look like a usurpation?" (Joseph Ratzinger, The Jewish People and their Sacred Scripture in the Christian Bible May 24, 2001)

To be precise, that was never a claim that could be made in good faith.
"Have they the right to propose a Christian interpretation of this Bible?"
No, esp. considering that the interpretation that has been proposed is a matter of fanciful, wishful thinking that has nothing to do with the content or the language of the text (based on mis-translations)

"or should they not instead, respectfully and humbly, renounce any claim that, in the light of what has happened, must look like a usurpation?"
What an excellent idea, this guy is onto something. I couldn't have said it better myself.
