Not to put too fine a point on it, and certainly not necessarily to contradict you, but the Romans killed Christ. They used Syrian mercenaries to drive the nails. The Jewish authorities were perhaps not blameless but the killing was done to satisfy a Roman sentence that the Jews of the time were prohibited from imposing.
Any historical guilt, as irrational as that concept is, must be born by the heirs to the Roman empire or the Syrian mercenaries if anybody must.

Individuals killed Christ. It's as irrational to say "the Romans" killed Christ as to say "the Jews" killed Christ. Individuals of various ethnicities participated, but they remained individuals.
