Edward Said wrote an interesting article about orientalism, which I will have to re-read. Unfortunately, I thought the teacher was an orientalist also. Instead of humoring these people, you have to handle them with kid gloves. Maybe. In my life I have been exposed to a lot of people, not just Jews. It is a good experience, to learn to listen and respect people. Although we represent the Jewish community, we have to learn to understand other peoples; they may be different.
