So we're the cause of all our problems. Of course! If weren't such exclusive reprobates, the Spanish Inquisition wouldn't needed to have occurred, we would have never been expelled from our homeland in 70 or Britain in 1290 or the Arab states in the 20th century, and the pogroms are of course our fault as well. What are you trying to argue exactly? I'd like to think you're attempting to accomplish more than spew the same anti=Semitic dogma that's plagued your continent for centuries, but so far it doesn't seem so. What religion or people doesn't think they should be good examples for the rest of humanity? I can't think of any religion that doesn't think their conception of a divinity has a special mission for them on this earth. We do not have the same strengths and weaknesses as everyone else. To think all of humanity is the same is naive and untrue. if we're a people "like anyone else", then leave us be in our homeland and respect our rights in the community of nations.
