On Jan. 21 in Paris, a gang of Muslims intent on kidnapping Jews kidnapped 23-year-old Ilan Halimi. Reciting verses from the Quran in phone conversations demanding money from the family, they ultimately rejected the money and tortured Halimi to death. They kept him naked for weeks while they cut him up and finally poured flammable liquid over his skin and burned him alive.

When Jews read this story, they see themselves as Halimi and think that such a thing could happen to them somewhere in the world today and somewhere in the world at any time in the past.

If you want to understand how Jews think and behave, you must first understand how large antisemitism and the Holocaust loom in the psyche, emotions and minds of the vast majority of Jews.

It could not be otherwise.

While ethnic, racial, religious and national hatreds are as old as mankind, none has been as universal and as deep as hatred of Jews.

By elevating the plight of Jewish people over those of others you run the risk of trivializing the pain that many in the world have endured. One only has to look at the slave trade of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries to know that others have suffered. It seems uncalled for to pit your woes against another's. It in no way helps your noble cause.

We have been hearing about the oppression of blacks for years. They have it better now then ever before. Better then in any of their "Native" lands that's for sure, yet they keep screaming for more handouts. Jews are not screaming for a handout, just to live in peace on the land that was promised to them by Hashem...Israel! I want to hear you tell Jesse Jackson to shut up.

Wow, you really seem to have difficulty accepting even the most moderate of critiques. In psychological circles it would tell us a thing or two about where this inability comes from.
