My Dad replied, "I will not let Hitler be the arbiter of what it means or who is Jewish."
and that makes sense.
My brother in law says that the Charedi and Dati Leumi, Orthodox Jewery in general, are to be respected for their beliefs because when they come to round us all up, they are the ones who carry on the history regardless of how flawed they are as humans.
And they are to be pitied because while I get to live how I want, they have to trade going out on a Friday night in order to preserve history so that when we get rounded up someone will know why.
I wonder what this victim mentality has created.
