    Isaac, with reference to Israel as the "Jew of the nations" Yes. The late poet Louis Ginsberg (whom I had the honor of knowing), father of his vainglorious Zionist-hating son, the derivative "Walt"--Allan Ginsberg-- "Whitman" , put it this way in his poem "Jews of Europe"--not Allan, but Louis--(I am separating the lines by (//) to save space) They who upon Mt. Sinai once/The Ten Commandments saw/And brought the Holy Writ to man/Are lashed outside the law. This shame now runs around the world--/Proclaim it from the steeples:/The people who have given Christ/Are now the Christ of peoples. A poetic variation of your "Jew of nations" Louis was a modest Jew with "sechel" (wisdom) that his more celebrated Narcissstic son lacked, also missing from self-hating Jew hater Gideon Levy. Levy: You won't be the first ersatz Jew to make a pact w/the D(evil). A more illustrious one long ago--Shabattai Zvi--& he has been a disgrace in the annals of our people ever since.
