Good Friday prayer

It appears that some changes might be made to the Good Friday prayer for the Jews from the '62 Missal. I don't really see the point, but I'm just a layman. But I wonder why we (Catholics) wring our hands over what OTHERS think about our Liturgy and why, frankly, we even listen to them. I don't see Catholics knocking the Jews over whatever they happen to pray for, or sticking our noses in anyone else's liturgical business, demanding that they change things to suit us.

But Fr Z covers more and better ground than I can ever hope to, so take a jump over there:

I thought I'd read somewhere that taking the word "perfidious" out was one of the changes when they made the 1962 Missal?
