    your statement reminds me of j. russell lynes' definition of cynicism: "the intellectual cripple's substitute for intelligence". in view of your comparison between today's arab israelis and german jews during the nazi-time it's obvious that you are completely ignorant, apparently concerning both, the time then in nazi-germany and the time today in israel. you said that then the jews didnt have "any choice but to play". well, actually they had a choice, namely to play or to die. today's arab israelis do have a choice, too, but it's completely different from the choice the jews had then: today's arab israelis do have the choice between living and living, living with or without celebrating, living with or without voting, living with or without lining-up the streets everytime the president drives by. that's the big big difference which obviously you dont see.
