    Kasrils styling himself a Jew raises the question is "Jew" a racial, community or religious description. In ANC SA, more racist than ever, his disingenuousity is revealing. Post Berlin-Wall anachronism as it is, Mr Kasrils' religion is the opiate of the left: Communism. A Jewish-born born-again Christian wouldn't call himself a Jew (born-Jewish, maybe); Kasrils, who has megaied to Stalinism is being disingenuous. He also does not participate in the SA Jewish community, the majority of which regards him as no more than an oxymoron joke on his job title. (Our Ronnie, tho' Min of Intelligence, is regarded as ignorant and stupid). Right now he is embroiled in a court case over his alleged irregular dismissal of his Director General. His standard ploy when he's messed up is to provoke distraction by the noisy banging of the PLO empty barrel like a little boy who's just discovered the shock effect of swearing. He is well encapsulated by the Evil Son in the Haggadah - "Not in my name".
