'What compassion you have! Would you, like Marlene stand up for the dispossessed, or are you only concerned for the well-being of your own people?' Going by the name, I don't think the Israelis ARE 'Absolute Swede's' people. Rather, I'll put my money on him being a frustrated little closet northern European racist who has fastened on the Israelis as vicariously gratifying and legitimizing his urge towards racism and violence. A similar mechanism of projection seems to work with otherwise impeccably moral and well-behaved American Jews -- if more understandably in their case. ...And this is one of the sick things about Israel. It's being driven down this evil, ultimately self-destructive course by the applause of its audience. It needs to wake up and look at who is buying the tickets and who is doing the clapping.
