independent, winning, successful Jew makes the world sick* Actually, not many people deal in that kind of racial stereotype these days, leastways outside of Israel. 'Proud' and 'winning' are not always the most engaging character traits. If what you mean is a proud, strong, independent, winning, successful ISRAEL, fair enough - as long as it is also a just society that obeys international law, that does not invade its neighbours, covet their lands, commit war crimes, seize territory, hog the scarce water, oppress other races and despise non-Jews in general and Arabs in particular. If so, welcome to the community of nations - when Israel's deeds start to match up to the fine words.
