Yeshuan Leader:


  1. You hit the nail on the head when you said that people ought not to be resentful of history. Moreover, they shouldn’t take inconvenient truths of the old days as a personal/national affront. If the true past of my nation (I mean the actual deeds of its society, not only of the leadership) offends my patriotic sentiments, then I shall fix the latter and sober myself up. Recently, historical viewpoints are getting less popular than hysterical ones, too bad.

    I would also comment on your conceptual disclaimer.
    Bad news: in actuality, there is no such thing as an objective category of antisemitism by definition. Usually and especially, Jews (sometimes self-proclaimed ones) and public intellectuals or politicians tend to feel themselves entitled to put this fairly elastic label on others. The former ones may do it rightly so, many of them have an ax to grind, although we live in a world of hypersensitivities, which lower the threshold stimulus. Nonetheless, I think it’s still better to suffer from being labeled as antisemitic wrongfully, than suffer from the hatred of a real antisemite as a Jew or anyone who is being considered as a Jew by others. Similarly, I guess you are also of the opinion that it’s better to suffer injustice than to commit it.
