So a few weeks ago, I was at work, and one of my patients was reading a paper. Nothing unusual, except that the paper was the Daily Mail, and the patient was Jewish. The patient saw the look on my face, I think, because he asked what was the matter. I replied:
"That paper... It was founded by a Nazi."
The patient's response was... How can I put this... Histrionic.
"Oh GOD! MY PEOPLE! MY COUNTRY! DON'T SAY THAT WORD! OOOOH GOOOOD!"
Dude was about thirty. It's unlikely any of his family closer than his great-grandparents could possibly have been directly effected by the Nazis.
Anyway. Right now, I'm watching a program about Israeli youth terrorists called Price Taggers. The absolute inability of these people to see any other point of view but their own is fucking scary. They're screaming about how outrageous and unjust it is that they're being evicted FROM LAND WHICH THEY HAVE FUCKING STOLEN!!!
Absolutely terrifying. You say to these people: "But you stole this land", and they respond "God told us to take it".
I swear, this stuff is seriously making me anti-Semitic.
