    Screwed-up country.

    … You have to admit, Israel is a pretty screwed-up country: external wars, internal wars, three different countries (secular, religious, Arab ) shoved into one. One-fourth of all children do not study the core curriculum and have no plans to join the labor force. We have unstable governments with no managerial abilities, ministers who worry more about their political survival than their ministries’ affairs. ….

    Israelis:

    … The dialogue we engage in is violent, superficial, and inherently flawed. Nobody listens, nobody lets someone else finish a sentence, and everything is always personal, insulting, and automatically categorized into “with us” or “against us” – and those who are against us are necessarily corrupt liars.

    We have lost the most basic characteristic of civilization: The ability to listen to someone who thinks differently than you and assume that he may be right as well.

    The problem here is not the essence, but rather, the style. We have turned into a country of talkbackers, gossip columns, and smearing that replaces any possibility of to-the-point discussion. Israel, which is a country of contrasts, must find a way to restore its dialogue with itself. Otherwise, we will feel bad next year, too.

    The Victimhood of the Powerful:
    White Jews, Zionism and the Racism of Hegemonic Holocaust Education. by Jennifer Peto

    Canadian grad student, Jewish anti-Zionist activist, and descendant of Holocaust survivors Jenny Peto is breaking new ground with her University of Toronto master’s thesis ….

    Her abstract states:
    This paper focuses on issues of Jewish identity, whiteness and victimhood within hegemonic Holocaust education. I argue that today, Jewish people of European descent enjoy white privilege and are among the most socio-economically advantaged groups in the West. Despite this privilege, the organized Jewish community makes claims about Jewish victimhood that are widely accepted within that community and within popular discourse in the West. I propose that these claims to victimhood are no longer based in a reality of oppression, but continue to be propagated because a victimized Jewish identity can produce certain effects that are beneficial to the organized Jewish community and the Israeli nation-state. I focus on two related Holocaust education projects – the March of the Living and the March of Remembrance and Hope – to show how Jewish victimhood is instrumentalized in ways that obscure Jewish privilege, deny Jewish racism and promote the interests of the Israeli nation-state.
